Bad form to vote for your own I think, my vote went for Wadsy's Mountain Goat. Love these and this one looks great - like the colours, like the components - top drawer - the only thing I'd change is the cable routing around the seat tube looks a bit crossed up.

Roberts was a close second for me, and the xizang, and the brave, and the mantis.... so many cool bikes!

EDIT - love the M16 and Rocky too!

I'm down to the Brave or the Roberts, both perfect examples!

Some nice rides this month. You don't see a lot of Americans, and it's a nice example, The Brave is, well, a Brave, and I've always liked Cunningham's (the one that can weld) bikes.

That stem on the Mantis does look familiar. :wink:

Love a 'clean' bike! 8) 8)


The devil is in the detail, and pete gets it spot on.

Gorgeous Fillet brazing in a stunning colour, with matching fork,
and a full NON SHIMANO build.

The icing for me, is the DETAIL, just look at the chromed droupouts.

Thats SKILLS.

Waffle waffle waffle.... :roll:
:P
Attention to detail is getting yer cable donuts arranged properly on all cables, not just one, instead of bunched up like Homer's breakfast...

First month for a long time when I could have voted for loads of the bikes.

Really like the Stumpy and Roberts.

On nearly any other month the Xizang would get my vote because it's ace.

Then Adrian sticks the Formula up and with it's history and development on here from sorry looking ebay 'outing' to pheonix......

... but my vote has to go to stoko's Clockwork. Even if the build was a dog I'd probably vote for it because it's my old and much loved frame but he's done a great job. Just about the perfect spec and build for a Clockork imo. 8)


Edit, agreed that the WTR is lovely too. A very strong month.

In our multicultural times I wanted to tip my cap to our Islamic cousins. In Islam artists make a deliberate error in their work on the grounds that 'Only God Is Perfect'. I decided to follow this doctrine as the last thing I wanted was to be riding the Roberts with a fatwa on my head.

Its an excuse I use all the time:

'sorry I forgot your Birthday, only God is Perfect'
'Oops, I ran your dog over, only God is Perfect'
'of course its small, only God is Perfect'
