Probably random and baseless ;)

Edit: but lets not let it start another stupid argument...

On topic I voted for the grove as in my opinion its the best presented bike, and everything looks just right. With the others I found myself thinking that looks really great except for xyz, where the Grove looks just right.

Clearly a bit random given the currently leading GRove is owned by a Frenchman in Germany and I think the Nuke is in the UK.... :lol:

Job, joint custody of my children, and a few other reasons keep me here in the US, but next time I will post up a rider.... Heck, I'm only here for the fun.................... Sounds like a great category for next month: Vintage Riders...........Still flattered with all this months kind votes for the status undenied Garage Queen Ibis....

Oh yea, FWIW, the Ibis is too small for me to ride comfortably, but if you are in the area and craving a vintage excursion, I wouldn't think twice before I let you get it dirty while we went on a ride.

Thanks,
T

Close call on the pro floater, but then I've cast my vote for the bike I want to own and ride. Shamus' trademark attention to detail and photo quality might have something to do with it, but it's the Pulse for me.

Enjoy!!
