For me it would have to be the Xizang, but if I was only able to keep one bike, I'd be fitting the fattest tyres I could to it.

Aye that's an idea give the weight it has to carry it'll help avoid pinch flats.

Roadie - 1961 Flying Scot - same age as me,simple and blacck but not finished building yet. Although the Bianchi is a VERY close call - fits like a glove and seduced me the moment I saw it. Drove to the lakes to buy it and first ride was bliss 8)

Offroadie - Saracen Andes as I like the colour and graphics? Modded 1992 Explosif? Recently acquired (from Dynacol) 1988 Lava Dome as I like the colour and graphics? Erm.......

My Muddy Fox for mainly sentimental reasons

Plus it rides and looks good but if it came down to shear riding pleasure it would have to be the wife's 1998 KONA Lava Dome as it's got a nice weight to it and is comfy chuckable when it comes to shear responsiveness it just feels alive and modern :mrgreen: .
