So many lovely bikes - seriously jaw dropping. V. difficult to pick one, so went for the Rockwell Yeti - purely for that front chainring! Blinkin' heck! YoEddy is lovely though... and the lloyd... and the RTS... and the... (I'll stop now).

Nice to see there's so much retro MTB love out there. :)

Is it just me or why cant I view the RekTek photos????

Too late..... I already made my vote and had to go with the historical ride. Too perfect. Was just looking at the catalog this morning that had a very similar build.

2nd place would have been the Blizzard with all of the Syncros.....awesome!

The RM Blizzard, nearest to 'my kind of bike'.

The Yo Eddy & the Ti Mega were right behind it though. Tough month for choosing it has to be said.

Beasty, RTS-1 or Slingshot ... hmm ...

As much as I like the Beasty, something just doesn't feel right. Components just don't seem to match the frame.
These things were very rare and very expensive, so it should be M900 XTR at least.

So my vote goes to the Slingshot, with an honorable mention to mtbdave's RTS-1 for being the first GT that I ever considered voting on.

wadsy's Dave Lloyd Beez Neez.

Lovely build, very thoughtful. Some lovely builds here, but this is it for me.

Thanks to everyone though for posting, I really don't think there is one bike I don't like; think there're all great.
