Tough choice.... but the Dynatech gets my vote.
The story of how it was bought, its restoration and then Adrian Timmis actually riding it again makes it a winner in my book 8)

Got to be the Pace for me, the bike I lusted after since I first saw Mint riding one BITD. Being from the Westcountry, I used to see Steve from time to time on the bike and it looked great! :)

Lovely though the Pace is I don't see it as a 'team bike' I'm split between the Pug, dyna-tech and the Orange.

&My vote goes to the Orange- looks like it hasn't been touched since BITD!

For the pure effort and attention to detail it has to be the Raleigh. It was an iconic bike from an iconic time in UK MTBing and has a truly special place in my youth.

So much effort has gone in to getting everything right on this one that it deserves a pile of recognition.

I grew up with MTB's during the golden years of Baker, Clark, Alexander, Hinton and oh course, Timmis.

And having seen a lot of the Raleigh team in the flesh, spoken to Adrian and chatted stuff through with Sinnett177 he more than gets my vote :D
