goodness so many beautiful bikes 8) I need a few more days for the decision :shock:

But the first bike looks for me the most classic (and it had received once before my vote)

I may own a Stumpy, but for me it had to be a splatter paint Kona.... Retro Roy, take a bow!

Tbh other than the avalanche none of the gts quite do it for me, purely my personal tastes (and I say that as a gt fan). Love the red ground control but ultimately amybrooke's green and purple kona is beath taking. :) loads of really lovely bikes though, including gts :)

Thanks Ratfans 8) I didn't expect such a response to a rusty old Kona !

It has no chance against the beauties it's up against , that '82 stumpy has it bagged for me ;)

Once I've stopped dribbling, I'll cast my vote.
To be honest, they're all worthy of BOTM, but I think I'll go for Robs Kilauea, such a classy looking ride.

Which Avalanche? They're both nice, but the '90 Team is the GT that stood out to me there.

For me it came down to which bike I would most like to own and so adri's 1993 GT Xizang with the titanium fork was the winner.

Had to give it to Gravy for daring to be different. Fuzzywig had the best picture thanks to the background!

Much too late, I'm afraid. Entries are in the first 20-ish days of the month.
No worries, there's always a next time. Nice Explosif as well.
