Crud's LTS is my dream bike. So I've robbed it.
I mean, voted for it. Top work that man!

wow...that's a lot of vintage bounce

I've narrowed it down to these three:

cchris2lou's RTS for the green flite alone...where did you find that :o

stew-b's Amp B2 one of my all-time favorite amp b2s behind Mr. Zero's.

Elev12k’s Iron Horse cool pro bike, though the pedals are way modern...great looking pedals but too modern looking for this ride

I'll be voting for one of these once I decide :)


alright...Elev12k’s Iron Horse is the one for me :)

stew-b's Amp got my vote last time it was entered and does again this month.
Nice clean build and the bike I'd most want in my fleet 8)

Hard choice this month…

For the number of bike shown, the GT RTS are the winners ! :lol: :lol: :lol:

My EST isn't a full suspension bike except if you consider the flexstem as a front suspension :D :D :D :D :D :D

For my choice… perhaps the manitou… 8) . but the moulton are so funny… :D

I would prefer to see an old shocker with a 24" rear wheel for showing an hannebrink, more mythic than the verlichi frame…

I may be the only person to vote for it so far, but for me it has to be the Pace. I feel personally involved in that one, so it means a lot to see it built up!

8)

A lot to like.

The Pace is lovely, but without a chain it doesn't get my vote. Some very nice AMPs, and you have to admire those goofy TREKs.

This is what's wonderful about these bikes - the pioneering spirit. They must have known it was wrong, but they went right ahead and did it. Heady times.

The Raven is a looker, but too modern. The Turner is the one I'd pick if I had to ride the thing.

I think I've narrowed it down to four. The Manitou has the right combination of old and weird, but may be just a little too pretty, and wants something visually heavier in the crank department. Arran's Delta V is close to perfection for a retro full-sus rig.

Graham's AM7 is a sublime piece of idiosyncratic engineering, and might get my vote if we can arrange some kind of you-scratch-my-back-I'll-scratch-your-back deal. Failing that I'm going for my own Mk3 because she deserves love, and it may be that I'm the only one who can see how beautiful she is.

There.

Second on that. Manitou and bunch of others are really sweet too, but I'd like to own a twin-tubed AMP/Mongoose some day, so therefore the vote goes to stew-b.

Need to take some better photos but would be a shame to miss another RTS!
