Took a little while but both my daughter and i went for Jonnyboy's Muddy Fox :D

I have to say that that photo doesn't do the green paint justice, it's blindingly bright 8)

It sticks in my throat because I do try not to like them but the bike I'd most like to own is... the Klein, so that's how I voted.

Urgh, I feel dirty.

But since it has a mountain LX front mech I'm afraid I have to go for Archemist's beautiful 1988 Muddy Fox Courier, used to see these around back in the day and loved the colour scheme and white cranks

So difficult, this month, but that Ibis is awesome. Bonus points for the full Mavic group in my opinion.

JB666 Muddy is wicked as well.

Another great month guys, well done for the superb effort...for me, it was between the 1989 Muddy Fox and the Ibis...

The Ibis won for me...lovely full/rare Mavic groupset..well done!!

For me, it's down to the Zip, Fat, Grove, and Stumpy
then down to the Grove and Stumpy
with the older of the two taking it...just something about an old MTB rocking the TA crankset 8)

Well I didn't get the Look finished on time - and the IBIS is as close to what I'm working on as anything else.

And my rule of thumb is "which one would YOU build?"......

However I'm still not sure of the "concept" of Mavic ATB on a non-euro branded frame (yes - I know, my Look was made in Canada). :roll: (at myself)
