OK - really don't know who to vote for: Goat, Ibis or Yeti? Truly three of my all time faves... Gotta say I would LOVE to take that Yeti for a spin around town just to see the looks on peoples faces although I realise that's not really a good criteria for picking a winner!

Lots of good bikes here this month, but none that I'd want over my own entry, so I won't be voting.

Not sure what flavour the Ibis Kool-aid is (maybe two flavours?) but people seem to be loving it. For me, seeing a mountain bike photographed in a studio takes away some of its credibility, also I'm pretty sure ABMX painted up a Curtis Freestyler something like that around 1986 ;).

Nate's Team actually got my vote, and I don't generally like Fats, looks like a rider though. That seat height! How tall are you dude?

Nate is a big guy who likes a small frame. Saw that bike at Keyesville. A real Gem.

I think if you go to the build thread about the IBIS, you will find the ride photo's.

Nice pesentation of a bike that is ridden.

As far as being first with certain paint or anything else, if someone claims to be first to do something with a bicycle, no doubt they will sound like a Gary Gisher blowhard and be proven wrong at some capacity. That paint just looks cool.
