The bikes I really love this year (in order of the month) :
- the C26. Perhaps, as said Elev12K, it's not really a retrobike, but the story of the bike was amazing
- the Pace. Neon color power !
- the Manitou : I have always love this bike
- the Grove. I would prefer a steel Grove, but titanium is not bad.


But, my choice is going to the C26. I don't really vote for the bike, but for the dream, the myth it's giving to us.
:D

The C26 looks stunning, but wanted to help Pete C's Yeti Ultimate up in votes, so that one got my vote. That Ultimate does it's name justice (the Ultimate YETI ULTIMATE) for me with the Campa stuff on it 8)

Cheers for that! I just thought that something as burly as Ultimate would be really interesting with something as delicate as Campa OR, and I reckon it works!

I think that's the 'contrast' I like !! My English is not that well, but those words are what it describes it best 8)

Took me a while to decide but my vote goes to the Manitou but was a close call between that and the Pace. My girlfriend likes the Serrota but she can't vote bless her!
All candidates are ace 8)

The Serotta is gorgeous.

So difficult. Every build has a story and every bike more than merits its selection. But the one I want to ride first is the Manitou.

I'm guessing most who are going to vote have done so already.

Looks like first and second are pretty sewn up. Only third in some doubt. Still a couple fo days left to vote so don't dilly dally any longer!

I'd noted that also. Sadly not Pete.
