I can't vot euntil I've posted 10 times. Here's post 1.

Whole heartedly April's Yeti ARC. I like December's Ritchey tons, but the Yeti has the WOW and immaculate factor for me.

Voted.

Considering the basket case it was when he got it, Sinnerman's Dave Lloyd gets it for me. Fantastic restoration, even down to replicating the original style of paint. Just what this site is about for me. Top bombing!



Exactly, that's made my mind up :wink:

I drive an Audi too and prefer steel but that gloss black Klein would have been below in my shortlist should it have won its round, anyway I'm going to vote for one of these

Jan 2011 Pre ’90 Special is Crantinope’s Kona Explosif
May 2011 ‘Made In Canada ‘eh’ Special is Woody’s 1991 Rocky Mountain Blizzard
June 2011 is chowi’s 1992 Gilles Berthoud (joint winner)
July 2011 ‘Euro Special’ is Sinnerman’s 1990 Zinn Z-753
August 2011 is spesh’s 1987 Muddy Fox Courier (joint winner)

I think I'll gonna decide by picking the one I'd steal if they were all not locked to a lamp post.


Though it has to be said they are all worthy winners as are a lot of the bikes that didn't quite make it imho.

All fantastic bikes, and some great restorations. I'd be proud to add any of them to my stable (if I had any room left :wink: ), but....


the two I'd most like to get dirty with are:

BP's 'Ham
AB's Arc

It's a helluva lineup of bikes, I reckon most of them could win it. Not really a fan of Kleins at all, but am very strangely drawn to the Attitude paint job. Probably one of the nicest Kleins I've ever seen. The Explosif takes me back to uni days, theBlizzard is just beautiful. The 2 ARC's, wow, the standard across the board is high. Plus a pretty wondrous cunni and the C26 which was truly a jaw dropping moment when I first saw it.
Gotta say cracking effort. Having now read the build threads on most of the bikes you can see that they have been a labour of love and devotion. If my FRO ends up half the bike that these are I will be amazed - and probably totally skint :(

For me it has to be Sinnerman's Zinn. Beautiful, understated elegance. 8)
