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 :)


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


Only just seen this, sorry. I liked the other one... Mossy's 1992 GT Avalanche :D Mainly because I think that size / colour / geometery work so well together. tbh all the bikes are outstanding just weren't any other GTs that quite did it for my tastes - but I'm weird. :)

Even though i've already voted for it in the past, and there are some fantastic bikes in the line up, i can't see past Robs Kilauea. Absolute perfection on wheels. Have another vote sir.

Regards

Marge

It would even be closer to perfection with canti brakes on. Nice bike...
But that '82 Stumpy is -IMHO- just perfect.
Cheers,

Congrats to the winner. I voted for bduc61's 1995 Specialized S-Works Steel. Mainly because I have the same bike, but his is just built to a much higher standard than mine :oops:
