Another standard month for December. I was going to run a festive theme but a lovely bike sat out in the British winter weather would hardly be on a level playing field with another against a snow covered winter wonderland!

Just the usual rules apply....

Useful for the poll if you can structure your nomination as follows:

username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Lavadome
Image(s) MAXIMUM OF 2
Finally please include a link to your machine in the relevant Reader's Bikes section. If you don't have an existing post now is the time to add one with as much detail as you like!

Nominations thread will run for the entire month. Entries submitted after December 31st will not be counted. The poll will go up shortly after the nominations close and will run for a week.

Ok, now the coast is clear (Regan’s YETI C-26 having got into November by the skin of his pants) here's part one of a two bike build I've been having fun with ’our Jimmy’ the Campag spec for this little 16” frame was the lads inspired choice……

Fun starts here; Build thread Pg 24 has the finished photos 8)

Sir Peachy, you're too modest and too kind. Miss Peachy's CB is my favourite bike from November' entries. This Lotus though, is spectacular and I'm glad I don't have a bike entered for December.
