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) :-)

...thought it was just me that couldn't find it on the list.

Bonty got my vote... very clean and just looks right..

Spice hit the nail on the head with the Merlin and THM's Overbury's just bonkers, The man must indeed be a mountain if he needs risers on that! :D :D Must be a hell of a sight steaming towards you....!

I'm going with Gruff's 1997 Karma Kona U'hu, since it's a lovely job and was a busted karma frame.

Top job Gruff!

Must say though what a fantastic selection this month! All of them absolute crackers, and a real tough choice! :D

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


Thanks!

I just railed it through Santa Cruz this last weekend. Its filthy now.

Good point on the cages and I agree...but I needed both! :p ;)

Ha! True. $250 USD for the frame, all parts I had laying around and it ended up in a Museum. Funny how that works out sometimes.

It's my ugly duckling. Will get a makeover once my equally large next and original project is released. The pioneer was a bargain from the same seller.
