Grove Ti for me, with a runner-up nod to the Bradbury Manitou.

I love the bike and the story, and I know the owner couldn't give two shits if I like it or not, but really...if the C-26 was put together in the last year, is it really retro? :? You can order nearly every part of a first generation Camaro, reproduced new today, off the internet and build one hell of a car and be as historic and accurate as possible, but in the end, it's not a real Camaro is it. :cry:

Now if it were a true C-26.... 8)

For me the Yeti C-26 is just a dream come true.

I was very pleased studying it and share with MTB Retro lovers in Portugal.

What could be more fitting to RetroBIKE UK that a rescued (and reunited with rider) UK team bike. Dyna for me.

Whilst I believe the C-26 will win (and should win based on the the effort and vision that went into it), I'm voting for Pete's Ultimate, because deep down I feel it is more important to bring a vintage bike back from the dead than cut one up to make something else out of it.

Would be proud to own any of those I would have gone for the either of the Yeti Ultimates or the Pace as they are exotic but achievable but as I always lusted after a Raleigh Team (even if it was the older 531 Lightweight version) I can't go with anything else.
