Landshark for me - it's just too outrageous not to vote for... 8)

I didn't do nuthin' to it it didn't deserve!

Actually the Vise Grips (as they are known west of the pond) most recently got put to work on my '86 Ritchey, but that's another story.

Really liking this month, the Landshark's fillets and paint are dreamy, but I don't like tandems, that 'tude with the splatter job keeps catching my eye, but I'm liking the 'goose too. Tricky, tricky, tricky...

I'm wavering between boy'oh'boy's retina searingly bright Al-Mega and Pete-MCC's graffiti Klein (it looks soo bright and fast!).

Tough month with some lovely AS's + Klein's. Got a serious soft spot for the Muddy Fox at the top too but had to go for totti's Clockwork. THE classic neon paint job imo 8)

My vote stays in Holland, why? Just because it's tne most neon-ed bike I think.

Cheers,
Martin

Pretty much love most of these this month. The Klein's are, as always, spectacular so too the Alpinestars. And that tandem is just mad.
But I like the Grove, it has a certain pertness that I like :wink:

Well done all though, another GREAT month :D

As far as the I-guess-I-don't-need-Lasik-now over the top neon goes, the Mongoose has it hands down.........and it's the one I'd want to have in my garage (as I have no real need for a tandem). If it was a loop stay/triangle top tube IBOC I would have voted for it over the Shark.
