For me it has to be the Dave Lloyd. British craftsmanship, funky design and paint, oozes quality. Probably the only bike here I'd like to own, and would never sell - why would you want to?

The only other bike would be sinnermans Zinn, which I also adore and really would be joint 1st, but his Dave Lloyd gets it for the paint!


my dilemma is the paint on the Lloyd vs the groupset on the Zinn.

still undecided. :?

sorry that no one like you hirschnummer, but a big car, a big bike and a big wallet isnt a reason to like you. the no like reason is your little brain.

Must admit that I didn't vote for many of the winners this year and most of them, although lovely, are not my cup of tea :?

Going to have a think but I'm leaning towards either of Sinnerman's or maybe the RM.

Voted. :D

This is a first for me, as the bike I would want to own and the bike I think is the best overall, are one and the same!!

All the winners of 2011 are a credit to there owners /builders,and have done the forum proud.

Well done one and all.


al. :D

Thought it was traditional in the voting threads? I was just about to lay into someone I don't know (who is plenty far away) for no apparent reason except my own thinly disguised deep-seated jealous insecurity.

I guess I could go fettle instead... :?

Berthoud or Brodie...the two I voted for this year that won.

What a choice. Both stunning. Plumping for the Brodie cause it's the one I'd like to own of the two.

I try to stay out of voting threads when one of my bikes is in it out of principle, but I can't resist with the audi-allroad vs. bmx4130crmo battle.

For the record, I drive an Audi, and prefer steel, so I'm on the fence in this one. :D
