It's between the Merlin, the P23 and the Xizang for me. After much deliberation, the GT just shades it. Just the coolest bike there was bitd.

Regards

Great month, great selection. The fact I would be quite happy with the GT when I really don't like GT's means that get's the vote over the Merlin. Kudos to the Lotus as well.

Steel is real!


I like the Salsa just because Dirt drops are fun if done correctly and this one is spot on!

The Ritchey is cool too, just because I am biased towards Ritchey's.

I don't like GT either but THAT one I would ride!
For me it's between the Kuwahara (love the lugs) and Nishiki

I voted the other day for the GT and share both your sentiment above
I've even voted in the past for a Klein :oops: and they bump GT off the bottom of my list for bikes I've no desire to ever own

In both case they more than over came prejudice

Which does lead me on to a dilemma - my personal criteria for what I normally vote on, is based on some very simplistic, which would I like to take out, ride, and take home. There are occasions where the line up includes some very nice bikes, that I do think are very impressive, but none that particularly stirs me - sometimes that means that I don't vote, sometimes I merely compromise and pick on that appeals best from the list.
