Tigern for an understated attitude. Very nice.

Another good month of bikes.
As i'm always one to go with the unpopular or outsider/underdog its no Fat's or yeti's for me :wink:
So out of the Goat,W.O.T and Barrie Clarks Raleigh......the Goat is just beautiful, Steves' W.O.T is a really well thought out build but i have to go for the Raleigh , rare and beautiful & great history 8)

A rider (and a racer) since I bought it new.

Awesome!

Huelse, I certainly meant no offense. Your Ibis is beautiful, and will (likely) be a worthy BotM winner. I just voted with my heart.

Lots of love for the Ibis here, as nice as it is (& it is nice), personally I would put Nader's 1993 Yo Eddy Aquafade, tvcreative's 1996 Fat Chance Yo Eddy, yo-Nate-y's 1991 Yo Eddy Team Fat Chance, KingRoon's 1990 YETI FRO John Tomac Tribute, Spwal's 1994 Yeti ARC AS & Tigern's 1996 Klein Attitude all above that. That is of course just my own opinion.

Exotic expensive for the sake of the name brands rarely excite me, but the Ibis is very nice. However, Raleigh and 531 trump even that IMO.

Hasn't Tigern's Klein been entered in a normal month before?

I was going to vote for whichever one had the longest seatpost, but John's timely reminder brought me round.

IBIS (though isn't it against the rules to enter two bikes in a month?)

Thanks for the votes already guys! No chance against the Ibis though, but it looks like no one has....
