Shouldn't we be voting for Stefan to avoid another central European meltdown?

(I did vote for him btw, it's an insane but totally cool bike).

The Grove, the Yo (near perfect), and the Myles Yeti (amazing but not my thing), were all very cool, and wish I could vote a few times, but went with wadsy's Dave Lloyd Beez Neez, cause I'm a sucker for lugs, fillet brazing, and peculiar paint (it's also perfect).

There's not a single 'jump-out' one, so I'll go for the Mountain Goat.

A lot of great entries! I am torn between several, but I have to say that the Rektek is absolutely gorgeous in person--great job on that build!

...aside from a few loose bolts ;)

Thanks :)

Nothing is loose now. I applied generous coating of Loctite to the chainring bolts, and properly tightened and adjusted the headset. The brakes are a bit squeaky still, so I'll try some different compounds to see if they improve things.

as usual, another tough month.
