Pfff.... difficult this time...

Edwards Rocky,
Audi's Klein or...
Mr. Ship's Ibis ?

The Rocky was the bike the bike I loved when it first came out, but... quit big for the era of 'to small frames'...
That Klein looks really great.. like new.. When does it see some dirt ?
Since I'm an Ibis lover, it would be easy, but the Pace fork is not in the right bike this time, me thinks...

I think I'm just being critical... perhaps to critical... let me sleep over it one night...

So much so worthy. How do you not vote for the Ritchey, the Newsboy, Wicked, Rocky, or Yeti? You vote for the Grove. It's The One.

Saracen Tufftrax for me , a bike is to be used imo not an ornament , the saracen looked like the only bike there that was still in regular use, yes the Yeti had muddy tyres but none had sprayed onto the frame so it looked as though it was pushed slowly through a bit of mud for the photo, all stunning bikes though.

I've gone for yeti-man's FRO. It gets my vote because it kept me chuckling all the way through the dark days of my bad back when several "disgusted of Retrobike"'s were moaning about the retro-mod attitude and disc brakes. For my money it's a cracking build and a very good conversion :D

I too went with Yeti mans Pro Fro. A sympathetically modernised classic that I would dearly love a blast on.

The News Boy was my first choice until I scrolled down to they Yeti.
