I'm really sorry about the Photos..... I know it's too late, but I have acquired a camera now...... I've also got an iPhone 4 which is better than the rubbish one I used for that picture.....:0(

Sorry, folks......

I'm voting for Stedlock's Hetchins because -

A. Its gorgeous and clearly the best bike
B. I'm duty bound after much 'brick taking' :)

P.s where is the trusty brick?

On a personal level I don't see how a bike with either a threadless steerer or STI/Ergo shifters can be retro so that excludes the Klein and Specialized. Out the others it's a tough choice between the Hetchins and the Raleigh. I've always liked that Panasonic livery but the bonkers rear triangle of the Hetchins wins in the end.

Mark.

I surprised myself -- I like the Klein!
The Hetchins is sweet to, I bet that rides beautifully.
But gotta go for Slotcar55's Galmozzi Super Competizion which just looks bang on - sleek, simple, and oh so stylish. Yet again Slotcar55 gets my vote :D

I had some votes! I honestly didn't think I'd get any as mine doesn't really fit the retro image especially with the Rev X as they don't get much love from people usually. The Quantum Pro looks like a modern race bike and rides like a modern bike too.

But it truly is fabulous! It's my only and everyday training bike. It is so light, and so stiff. Gary Klein certainly taught the industry a thing or two. And the paintwork is amazing, the pearl yellow seems to be a bit rarer (or maybe it was less popular) but on sunny days really stands out.

I hope more people can pick up and modernize more Kleins and make the most of these amazing frames. But I guess people prefer to pick up cheap carbon frames from china nowadays!

A very worthy winner, right from the start.

Many thanks to those who voted for my Raleigh. I really just entered it to bulk up the field :oops:
