As per the nominations thread mid range is defined as no bikes with better components than Mountain LX / Deore LX or Suntour XCD.

So if I spy something better than LX on your bike it won't go in the poll. Sorry.

I also note the mid-range newsboy has been withdrawn.

So, onto the poll!

Kinda disappointed with what's made the cut :?

The Cinder Cone has DX thumbies BTW...

Of what's there, I think it's gotta be the Fuji (not just because it's the only one with a decent photo!).

Disapointed why? Just think how I feel about the whole affair :lol:

Looks like the problems are being spotted already. If you see a part which is DX or above please report it and I will withdraw the entry. So far we have

:lol: I see, had a couple of distractions during the post so submitted and edited, nothing worse than spending 40 mins on a poll and hitting back just before you hit submit.

The KF is in. Lovin' the wheels!

think the cut was pretty good?
Loving all 3 Orange's, especially the Khane's.

Honourable mentions to the Marin and the Amp. The Marin is gorgeous!

Hmmm... difficult one this time..., but I did expulsion and ended up with two to choose from:
The Cannondale with the Mavic hub(s ?)
The Giant Escaper as a real old fashion one.

For now it's gonna be... uh...

...close my eyes and point out one... :oops:

Oh.. well, the 'dale won... it's getting my vote..

:D :D

Didn't think this one would be as tricky :?

Cannondale or the Kirk or the as mentioned excellently photographed Fuji.
