The Big red is lovely. But a fillet brazed Ritchey always wins, and i voted for the last Red Ritchey that won.

So with the in mind, the only winner for me, goes to the Saracen Estay, purely for the time and attention to detail.

just a brilliant build, with every detail thought about, the clear winner for me this month...... 8)

Tough crowd but its the Team Marin for me, I had a '98 one but it was too small. Still loved it though. :D

i like the yeti ultimate, and i like the sycip. so many nice bikes.
don't give a crap about pedals as long as the bike has them.
still trying to decide which bike will get my vote.

After seeing it raced to within an inch of its life (and ductape's), I had to go for the big red Ritchey. Cool cool bike and build, and so rad that it has stood up to real riding 30+ years later!!

Saracen---elevated saddle angle is kind of fitting I suppose....but is it on purpose?

I always vote by just doing a quick look at the photos and going with my initial gut instinct of what I like.

So this month it's the Diamondback.

Whoa. Whoever owns that Saracen obviously doesn't value their crown jewels!!! and the water bottle on the Ritchey looks too modern to me.
Go Doug.
