like the brodie the most as well, just still a bit undecided on the fork (if I would ride it that is, and yes a friend has one), but seeing as I´m itching to set a rocky of mine up with the same bar setup I voted for the cunningham, which is executed very nicely!

and as for the german thickhead, who succeeded to embarass himself even more....yes it´s still called "fremdschämen", I bet it sounds even better with a english accent :wink: not wanting to fuel anything here though, good luck to all participants!

I agree, took a while but my vote has been cast


I'm the same. All nice bikes and a huge amount of effort has gone in to all, so hats off to all, but none make me really lusty.

Voted

berthoud for me 8)

not just because it is rare but more because its looking the part of a true retro MTB and beautiful in a classy and understated manner

and a bit because its one of the few surviving french framebuilders ( more into randonneur bikes)

Brodie which is very nice was close 8)
