It's the Bonty for me. Streamlined and business like.

I have a penchant for those forks and wishbone seatstays on a frame.
Like the choice of bits but on a pedantic note; lose one of the bottlecages as 2 clutter it slightly IMO :) .

Gorgeous bike

Where's Nader's 1991 Merlin Titanium? I can't vote for it and it's the coolest bike in the list (personal opinion, of course) :-)

Love the Iron Horse. Not many retro Full Suspension bikes I'd want, but I would this.

Easy month for me - the Elgin gets it for the sheer work and pasdion that's gone in to re-creating and repurposing m a frame most would have left on the scrap heap.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I think that Alpinestars would be a real contender if it weren't for that seatpost but coming from the guy who puts suspension forks on 77 year old frames that is a little ironic. Rumphys Bonty is perfectly meticulous as usual but Mr Ships Salsa is very nice too. Having owned a Teesdale Brave I have a soft spot for the Pony too and the black parts look really slick on it. Tough call this month. I would be proud to own any of the bikes posted this month.

It's between the Salsa, Naders Merlin, the ridgeback or the Overburys for me.

And I think Dossa takes it by a nose. :lol:

Nadars bike was cool, but Ti frames are bland enough colour wise without making the photo black and white..... :roll:

The History Mans Overburys should win for the Biggest bike in Existence, or better still the best bike ever built for just over a ton... not into the spec but I feel the camaraderie, and appreciate the combined effort from lots of members to help the fella... 8)

The Yellow Fat is Perfect, but I don't do Lellow.... :?

Mr Ships Salsa--- Perfect.....Rumptys--- Bontrager......Perfect...., both seasoned builders that built proper bikes. And not a wallet wave in sight..... 8)

Loads of others worth a mention, but these stick in my mind, Anything that had a dog in it I discounted straight away, don't get me wrong I love dogs but really NO NEED.... :facepalm:

A tough call, but Steel was real this month..... 8)
