Hot damn, that really is a tidy collection (and I'd forgotten that sinnerman had won twice this year too).

Like several others above, Gilles Berthoud for me.

What a great line up!

My vote went to Sinnerman's Lloyd. A beautiful and considered build, finished with imaginative and custom paint. It was truly an inspiration in the building of my Overbury's.

From George Carlin:

The phrase sour grapes does not refer to jealousy or envy. Nor is it related to being a sore loser. It deals with the rationalization of failure to attain a desired end. In the original fable by Aesop, "The Fox and the Grapes," when the fox realizes he cannot leap high enough to reach the grapes, he rationalizes that even if he had gotten them, they would probably have been sour anyway. Rationalization, that’s all sour grapes means. It doesn’t mean deal with jealousy or sore losing. Yeah, I know you say, "Well many people are using it that way, so the meaning is changing." And I say, "Well many people are really ****’ stupid too, shall we just adopt all their standards?"

So many amazing bikes this year. I have to come back to the one that looks the most inviting to me right now....and head for the obscure Berthoud.
