A tough one, longest I have ever pondered in fact. If I could only ride one, it would be the Passoni. But what a choice.

Really tough choices this month.

That Manitou looks fantastic. Almost too good. Kind of like a supercar, something that would always be waaay out of reach BITD so it would never be on the wish list, just on the bedroom wall. Similar deal to the Yeti. Agains, amazing job, but if I were ever to get a Yeti, it wouldn't be this one.

So, looks like the Bonty and the Rocky Mountain for me.

The Bonty looks so light and lithe, and just, well... engineered. Lovely.

The RM on the other hand, I dunno. Never really been much of a Rocky fan for some reason, but this one just looks so right. Great build job and spec. Too stuff.

You can't beat that Fat surely? The build thread and back story ought to be enough, without even seeing any pics.

True, but I've voted for plenty of Fats recently. Gotta give the others a chance!

that rocky mountain is the stuff!

Although it looks like a vertex not an element...
