I really like the frame and the fork of the Ritchey Ultra...But the Stumpy is a really nice build and had my vote!

I have to ask:

Do UK based bikes, (as in made in the U.K.), have a bit of an advantage here on retrobike?

Like the Pace last month and the Bolx this month, both beating out strong US builds.

Then again, they are strong builds in their own right, so bias probably has nothing to do with it. Again, just wondering, not that it would have any effect on my entry :P

I'd say no, BOTM is just very unpredictable, anything can happen and it usually does.

Well.... If it makes you feel a little easier im about as English as it gets (Londoner) yet im biased perhaps more toward the American brands of retrobike !! I just find they are nicer bikes to ride and like most things American - MUCH more exciting :wink:

The klunker. Jez's bike a close second, although I just can't vote for a bike with that horrid Tioga wheel....

...plus I refuse to support another man's bolx. :shock:

Thanks for all the mentions so far guys. I like to keep the result hidden until the last minute but I know which way my vote will go.

The Klunk had a good run out around Dalby on Saturday, theres a full report over in Rides.

Keep on Klunkin'
