Gotta be the Mantis Pro-Floater - for rarity and build.

toooo tricky this month, the one I'd most like to own is the WTB but its not pushing retro buttons. The Mantis looks amazing. will need to check out the thread if there is one. Grove and Dekerf looking solid too and the Wicked is sweet. :? For some reason Fat and Ti doesn't mix for me.

It's between oneschnark's Grove Titan and TiFat's 1992 Fat Chance Titanium

I'll decide by the end of the week, where my vote goes

I voted for the Dyna Tech Raleigh, pleased to see I'm not the only one with impeccable taste. 8)

A month of real breadth and depth (again).... 8)

With Fats, Titanium and Attitudes rather cancelling each other out (although I keep staring at TiFat's fork paint job), I'm naturally drawn to the Ibis and the Mongoose.

With a little more cerebral activity (and a sharp coffee) I point the mouse at the bikes I'd like to see added to the cellar, so:

3. Finger's P7 - British steel
2. Grove Ti - beautifully presented. Suspect this is the start of a run of BoTM dominance...
1. Nuke Proof - in the Sally Gunnall/Rebecca Adlington mode. An exciting bike then and now.

Honorable mention for the Raleigh-in-the-wilds photo... epic!
