I DO like red bikes - and some very nice ones here!

Decision process much easier than usual - all I have to do is think which entry would I even consider swopping for mine! Only 4 contenders (I quickly rule out e-stays which I find aesthetically unpleasant, closely followed by straight forks ditto), namely the S-Works '93, the Gleiss, the Breezer and the Zinn.

The Zinn takes it by a tyre's width over the Breezer - but actually I wouldn't swop. Logically I should vote for my own, but that wouldn't be right.

Funny you should say that because I feel the same way...

...mine may be a lowly Cinder Cone (and a Kona, thus common as muck! :oops: ) in this company but I wouldn't actually swap it for any of the others.

The Breezer got my vote because it is just such a pretty bike 8)

It's got to be the Steve Potts. It's got that 'just right' look about it.

Take a look at a Potts close up, if you ever get the chance...they have the craftsmanship of an early Ritchey, with a more dialed in modern geometry. That TYPE 2 fork is sweeeeeeet.

If that doesn't fluff your feathers nothing will...delicious

I will say this one looks "King Kong" huge...

Only 3 pages with comments???? Are we getting BOTM-tired?? At least 190 people voted!

We do have a clear top-3 this month! Congrats to the Potts and well done for second and third place (Breezer and Brodie)!

Allthough I voted for the Brodie, I think I can live with this months winner! :wink:

Let's see what November will bring us!
