Can't help but feel a little sorry for M_T_s...

...enters one of the rarest bikes out there and doesn't even make the top three! :|

top three are all splendid - but echo above MTS's Lotus received scant recognition.

Hehe. Thanks for the kind words guys, But I'm *quite* chuffed! I know full well that despite the rarity (and I know there are FAR rarer bikes on here) This just isn't everyones cup of tea.

Merlin. Salsa. Xizang, Ritchey, Slinghots, Kuwahara... No shame here! Congrats to Sebastian!

On the plus side, I've two more carbon bikes waiting in the wings to annoy everyone with! :lol: :lol: :facepalm:



Another +1 for 15 bike limit.

Rarity itself is no recommendation. I love the Lotus, but there are many other bikes that are rare for a reason.
