Yeti, Merlin, (grey) Klein, Alpinestars and Grove got by the first cut (of things mass-produced, with suspension and/or too much color accessorizing).

Merlin, Klein and Grove all drop because of the all-to-common pedal problem: No clips/straps on pedals designed for them.

And although I'm not a big Yeti fan, I'll go for that in a heartbeat over an Alpinestars.

I like your process of elimination Halaburt! The Yeti is going to be tough to beat.... could be BOTY in my opinion.

How do I vote? Or maybe not allowed? Another thing, I can see some user have badges, like winer of this months boke, and so on, Should I be able to click and see?

Yeti for me, fantastic history and a great restoration. Loved the Grove, Merlin and Ti-Mega too. Well done chaps.

Groove for me, because I really like those bikes and Oneshark has a huge and amazing collection.
