People still seem to have a problem with the "retrobike" moniker though ... last time it was "metrobike" that was credited at the Hill Climb Champs, this time (cyclingnews) it's :

It would seem most reports struggle. It normally ends up as retrobike.com. Sometimes retrobike.co.uk, otherwsie some odd variation as Sylvain points out like metrobrike or etrobike :roll:
