Also meant to add - no idea what happens to those who voted for the Avalanche - assume you can vote again?

What a tough decision to make!! those Oranges are lush, the Haro is a cracker too and that Avanti is to die for... But i was only ever gonna vote for a Marin because they're my faves... Sorry WD Pro, if only you'd but some different tyres on you'd have had my vote.

I'm not 100% sure but Brigestone were usually made in Japan…

Thanks John. I too hope that those who voted (if any) can re-vote.

There's always another month. :D

Regards, Mossy.

Really wanted to vote for the Zip, as I want one desperately, but the pic just left me flat.

Went with the Haro...looks like it would be a LOT of fun to ride.

Gaff's 1989 Diamond Back Apex,

Going to give to him on this basis. My mate pull one of them from a skip. fixed it, then used it as a daily hack. Rattle Cann'ed, panniered it, crashed it soo many times. I cant rem how many years hes had it for. Its only just been retired...yet it still hasn't made it out of his garage.

for someone who has a lot of nice metal, he always laughs that his favourite and most riden by thousands of miles is the one that he got for free.

A true honest hero of a bike.

Gaff your looks great!
