I wish the stem on the Crosstrac wasn't so negative rise. Spoils it aesthetically kind of like a modern 29er...but I like it otherwise.

1985 Muddy Fox Big Foot 2 - MADB's
I love it, but isn't it disqualified http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... light=foot
(sorry)


you cant just disqualify it just because its got a Tourney GS Chainset you elitist devil, they were OK back in the 80s.

I do like the Fox, but my love of Yeti's and especially Elite's Yeti, swung me over - added to which I have seen how Elite rides the arse of his bikes so nothing but admiration here!

Got an ARC I'm building that red Ritchey Z Max WCS tyres would look amazing on :(

We need to make it possible to give multiple votes, seriously. Like in the Eurovision, 12, 10, 8 etc. I can't give my vote to just one of these.


GREAT IDEA????????????????????????????????? :lol:
Give every bike a vote, like that idea alot.

Fluffychicken. Thankyou for your comment on my bike, you have stated OK BUILD? Like something you would slap together..... I have not built it or slapped it together, thats EXACTLY how it came out of the factory back in 1997? 100% original, nothing bought new for the bike.Or changed or swapped. I realise it is not as nice as some of the other bikes here, but it's the taking part and if everyone thought like that there would only be 2 bikes on this months poll, 1 being the salsa, Id never ever expect to win something like this but it's nice to be part of a close nit community and take part in what ever way you can. :D
