Thank goodness there is a Klein in the mix. Now I can vote. ;)
Awesome bike BTW. Takes me back to our owner's Adroit. Same bike really, color, components, etc. He spent soooo much $ on that thing.

Officially pulling my entry...the damn Tesch has a Shimano bottom bracket, oh the horror!

I'm going to park it in the back of the garage and sneer at it every time I walk by...never going to throw a leg over it's miserable secret-keeping frame again :wink:

Not sure why I even checked, just curious I guess. No way am I going to swap the bb just for this BOTM,
(but I'll probably do it eventually just because I liked the idea of having a non-Shimano ride, (even checked the chain and it was a gold old Sachs).


Either way it's out for this month's voting, (not that it had a chance against the Ritcheys/Ibis/Klein, etc)
...maybe I'll enter it again when we have a fillet brazed MTBs built by road bike builders who's last name DOESN'T start with "R" :lol:



cheers,

Steve

The Ritchey's great but the entry is breaking the two pic rule.

I would enter mine again but I've got an XT shark fin. I'm half tempted to remove it just for this month :) but would that be cheating?!?!
