Well done to all. Its like a list of my dream bikes from 20 years ago.

The Brodie, Stumpy and Kona are just lovely. But that c-26 is mint. white porcs too.

I''l decide over a beer this evening.

Dont usually comment on the internal ramblings and head-scratching that I go through in choosing my BoTM vote.... however this month.......

The Breezer could have got it purely on the basis of sticking it to the purists who seem to do nowt but moan.... good effort!
The Breezer could also have got it for exactly the reasons Carl gave above... that being sticking to the original "If you dont have it, Make it" attitude

Rob's Kilauea could have got it on the basis of its reuinion with him, and all the love and hard work he lavished on it in restoring it, and would have got my vote without question were it not for the fact that......

.......I go weak at the knees at the sight of that Brodie!


Thanks for that :D I know there's not many entries this month but it's full of quality and getting more than 1 vote (my own :oops: ) would be great, especially since it's my first shot at BOTM

Thanks all for the kind words about my bike. It really is ace to ride and I can guarantee it will be buried with me. I really don't need any other bike now!
Not many bikes in this month and I'm chuffed to get some support.

:-D

Was going to go for the Klein Attitude but the green of racer x's 1996 Dagger FS had me drooling so I voted for that; both bikes lovely though!

Sooo tempted by the dagger with all it's anodised goodness, but had to go for Robs Kona, so classy and uncluttered. :D

For me it's the Breezer but this was a hard choice between that and Robs Kilauea who's bike looks clean and very understated, whilst very classy
