That (this) photo - the bike, the setting, the activity, the style (and maybe the sheer rarity of Jez conquering his agrophobia ;-) ) - is the quintessential Retrobike image, bar none. In my head this is what we are about - period. No words required.

It beggars belief that you moved this on Jez - you had better get it back pronto!

All stunning bikes but the Salsa is probably my fave too, the Attitude is stunning but i dont think i could have lived with the colour, gator or moonrise would be ideal.

Wouldn't complain about having to find a space for the San An either, nice seeing one with the original forks and brakes on it.

I'd have jumped at the Salsa when it was for sale a few weeks ago, would have gone for it if i hadn't the purchase pending on the Manitou at the time.

Jez, you'll have to change you nickname to something else again to allow more bike to be built.
