non-retro riders love them


that kinda makes them not so cool.

psyclone is cool, everything else, not so much. Good bikes- yes; cool bikes- not really...aside from the psyclone.

GTs leave me cold. But they definately aren't cool.

I think GTs are cool, but then owning 5 probably makes me a bit biased :lol:

At least they never took themselves too seriously, I mean triple-triangles, pierced tubes with added complexities of end caps etc. None of this stuff was needed (everyone else has proved that time and again). Non-conformity is always cool isnt it :wink:

Whats wrong with 98 and 99 stuff? The mid and high end steel bikes were made from Reynolds tubing and were very nice!!!

As cool as the hairs on a Polar Bears Bum

Cool - 'tis not a Vauxhall but a STS XCR1000

Farking Freezing (would cause a new Ice Age if I ever got round to finishing it :) ) 'Tis not a Ford but a Lobo

Take a look at this Ti Lightning, I know the use of modern parts isn't to every ones liking, but in my eyes this is CAF (stands for Cool As F***)

Bike is tfayet's and is very cool

here's his thread http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=78609

RTS, LTS Cool and I'm not even going to talk about the Psyclone or Xizang, the words of us mere mortals cannot do them enough justice :wink:

The Zas is more RS Turbo then Vantage surely?


RS Turbos are cool too, which this video proves without question:

Never thought of the GT brand as cool in the MTB market, individual models yes, and definately cool old school BMX in my opinion.
