bduc61's 1995 Specialized S-Works Steel

Just looks so balanced and in no way "in your face" lovely.

Hmmm, do I vote for the one I think looks the best; "bduc61's 1995 Specialized S-Works Steel" or the one I'd like to own; "ronmen's Rocky Mountain TiBOLT" ? :?


The S-Works gets it ;)

I voted for the ARC, not because I'd want one but because I think it's such a stunning colour scheme and just looks so 'right...'

...there was another at Mayhem (sorry, I'm lousy at names, built like a whippet and twice as fast...) and that was an absolute cracker too 8)

It was between the Haro, the American and the Kona for me, the Kona got it, just about perfect.

Some great bikes but I'm drawn to bduc61's 1995 Specialized S-Works Steel. Bit out of my comfort zone but it's my favourite. 8)

I'm not going to waste time saying how lovely they all are and how they inspire me, most are good, a few are incredible but one is exeptional. It has pedigree, style, taste and history.

Re-discovered, re-built, re-enjoyed, ridden. Explosif. :lol:
