Ah, the fond memories...the hot summer of 1995... Grizedale Forest...jumpers for goalposts...isn't it? Anyway, enough of that. Here are your contestants :D

I think Corduroyboy's 1993 Kili XTR Elite is probably the best bike in the poll, but that photo is awful (sorry).

Drystonepaul's Kili is lovely and probably will be a deserved winner, but for me it has to be the Trekker Hydrotech; I spent so much time lusting after the one in my lbs that it still holds a special place in my affections and brings back lots of happy memories. :)

keitholy's Tufftrax, my old bike, love it to bits.

Classic and original, right down to the original reflector set, pedals and saddle (which aren't in the pic, but Keith does indeed have them).

A stunning example.
