Ok so i didn't vote for my own :wink:

Not easy with so many entries this month but a few really caught my attention, Stumpy FS, Bonty, AMP B3, Jamis are all ones i'd like to own but in the end it's penchant of all things unusual which steered my to vote for the Gleiss :D

I just love those straight fat tubes and the steep head angle makes it look as if it would be a very twitchy ride 8)

I voted for the bike I would most like to own and that was/is Nader's Merlin

I think I should just go ahead and buy one so I can stop wishing

What a month! Wish I could give points to a set of contenders instead of choosing just one winner.

This month though it's the Thunderbolt for me. It's absolutely gorgeous and unbelievably rare. These are extinct in the wild! I like it when a bike doesn't scream 'Look at me, I'm special!' but instead has a modest first appearance (despite the tyres!), it only requires a more detailed look to understand what we're dealing with here is something unique.

I wanted to for this:

'grogee's 1990 Raleigh Technium Heat'

Cool bike: very clean and fresh and a good 'point in time' bike

Couldn't find it listed as a selection though!

Difficult - even more so than usual I think. Rather than toss a coin, I'll go with what simply looks prettiest - so, although it wouldn't be my choice if I could own any of them, the Gleiss takes my vote.
