If it is any help I don't like the AL Mega - colour doesn't suit it.

Cro-Mega's are definitely nicer than Al-Mega's and TK's right about the colour :wink:

Not sure that pic of the the Al-Mega does it justice, I'm sure there was an earlier one where it looked spot on.

Still hankering after an e-stay, Mark's single-speed disk cro-mega fits the bill. Lovely stuffs.

You seem to be in the twillight zone between collecting and riding.

Do you find its hard to justify all the bikes? Like you don't ride them all or can't ride them all at the same time etc? I think most folks get to a point and say WTF have I got 15 bikes for? :lol: At that point you can convince yourself you collect them rather than need them for purpose X,Y and Z.

I vote Cro-mega to stay :wink: :lol:

I don't agree about the Al-Mega not being as nice - saw one in that blue a few weeks ago and IMO, it looked good.... 8)
