Best thing for me was that he just rolled it out low-key at a local ride mid-Winter and de-NOSed it in the filth & muck, no holding back, very very cool 8)


That is cool 8)

It was a filthy old ride too, with plenty of melting snow and ice thrown in on the otherwise sandy and abrasive trails.
The smell of freshly stripped anodising from Martin's RM20's was really something to behold.

Picking the bike of the ride that day was easy. Definitely a unanimous decision if ever there was one.

Anyway, in the interests of fairness and impartiality, they are all great bikes and you're all very special...

The Roman Lakes ride was certainly a day for De Nos-ing many parts on the Team Ti, I had also built that week and had not even ridden, even to the end of the drive. I may also add this is most un wise, as the brake lever just kept creaping closer and closer to the grips until I had almost no stopping power, hence the fall. This was rectified for it's second outing at the Thetford meet and all is now well with the addition of the period correct U-II brake on the rear.

cheers guys

Went for the Vit T. Which is unusual for me as it falls outside 'my era', but what a nice bike it is. It stood out to me in what is an incredible collection of bikes, top marks to all who submitted a bike.

I suppose we should call the winner of this one, but since a nice pair of titanium entries are tied on 3 votes each then I guess there isn't one.

I suppose we could always open up the poll again to decide a clear winner or I can cut the prize in half...?

Thoughts via PM please...

It's the system to blame - I think you should invest millions in an AV switch-over...

I never actually managed to vote :oops: but I think the responsibility of deciding vote now might make me combust!

1-week, 2-bike poll?

Greco-Roman wrestling at the Three Tribes?
