As always, I went purely on the "What would I buzz from to ride" criteria.... not "Which is rarest", "Which has the most bling", or "Which was once ridden by some bloke"

Close call for me between the custom white and gold Orange, the Roberts, and the Brodie.... I would get that buzz from all of them 8)

Some great bikes but many have just one or two parts that put me off.

Got to be boy"O"boy's Elite for me. Classic bike restored perfectly 8)

Another month of cool bikes.

Just a choice between 2 this month.

Stefans Slingshot just happens to be one of my "must own" bikes.

But GT-Steve's Brian Rourke is one of the coolest builds iv'e seen for a while. but the frame is where it's at, sexy paint and sexier welds 8)
I want it even though it's way too big for me :roll:

Slick tires, big ring with cog combo and even a singlespeed kit when your entering this prestigious competition? What are you guy thinking of! :D
Other than that there are some very nice bikes here.
But klasse's 1993 Bridgestone MB-1 is clearly a notch above the rest!

Ps: no such thing as a 1988 "Gary Fisher", m'kay. ;)

The Brave Warrior for me, I'm a sucker for elevated chainstays.

Brodie for me, perfect balance and poise and a great spec to boot. Wasn't easy though lots of really nice bikes this month. 8)
