Hmmmm, this was a difficult one... torn between the C26, Manitou FS, Serotta and the Raleigh. I voted for the C-26 as it has such an amazing story behind it and it's such an icon of a frame and the company.

Marks Raleigh got my vote, looks like the only bike listed that actually gets ridden.

I'm tossing up between a C26, a Mantis and a Raleigh. The Yeti for the work involved, the Mantis because of the attention to detail and the Raleigh for being a UK icon. None of the others are close (obviously except mine! :lol: )

Being in Nottingham, only one contender really - the Dyna! Plus I've had a couple basically the same and they ride as neat and as nice as they look.

Serotta a very close second.

TBH, while all are interesting, most I have no particular wish to own.
