A great selection this month! Two nice Rockies, the outlandish Retrotec and the stunning WTR all ticked boxes and the down to earth honesty of the 'dale really appealed to me but in the end my vote goes to Gio's Vulcan - a great restoration of a rare frame with quality but understated parts that let the frame take centre stage. Nice one mate :D

Some crackers in there, but my British steel bias means only one winner for me

Some gorgeous bikes!

For me it came down to the DY, the FRO and the WTR. All stunning.

The colour of the Yates, and the build are top class, its definitely the one i'd want to own 8)

Lovely bikes this month and i thought i should vote for the Yates as its such a great build 8)
The WTR is a bit too early for me though it's very cool but i keep going back to the RM Altitude, it looks so "right"
So Canada gets my vote :)
