Can't decide WHAT I'm voting for really - a machine that typifies "mainstream" retro mtbs and their enthusiasts or one that, from a small cohort, I love the most! For the former I'd probably go with the Ritchey or the 'Fox, the latter, well, the Berthoud.

I must think harder.....

definitely a popularity contest, I'm on the list because I am so beloved on this forum...

Get over yourself, your bike was basically a wallet wave - you bought it like that an did no more than polish it. At least some of the great bikes on that list involved a bit of effort in getting them looking that way, like the beautiful bike that spanked your arse.

Stunning line-up. The Cunningham Indian and both Yeti ARCs are gorgeous, but the impeccable Muddy Fox Courier is going to get my vote - where it all began in the UK for old timers like me.
