It has to be the Grove for me, looks tough with the black walls. I haven't ever really been a fan of them but this one has won me over. 8)

a GT-Steve's 1991 GT Team Avalanche
b wadsy's Dave Lloyd Beez Neez
c Tc's Specialized Stumpjumper

Narrowed it down to these three and after much deliberation (sounds better than indecision) one of them above gets my vote but it could easily have been any of the other entries - the standard is very high indeed this month. Well done to all :D

That Yo is near perfect; only problem I had with it is the saddle.


Me too but I have a spare flight in the garage so wouldn't bother me too much if I was lucky enough to own it. Yo it is for me, very closely followed by Wadsy's perfect Lloyd. Or is it the Lloyd :?

Tricky as there isn't anything I really want to own.

But in the End it was the Goat as it just looks so different with the super skinny tubes.
