Please get your nominations in here for the November 2009 Bike Of The Month. This time it's mid range special. How have we defined mid range for the sake of this BoTM? No bikes with better components than Mountain LX / Deore LX or Suntour XCD, that goes for the entire gruppo. Will judge gruppos from other manufacturers for eligibility as and when entered.

The guidelines are here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8326

I'm sure this one will cause some debate and be a real headache :lol: Remember it is a bit of fun and judges decision for eligibility is final.

Mid range? Only thing I have mid range is my Cannondale SM600 and even that has Deerhead XT on it. Guess its a no go then.

Yeah, STX is fine. The best gruppo can be Deore LX.
