Awesome! Great entry, but...

"7. Bike must be currently owned by site member / nominee. If the bike is sold prior to or during the contest it will become ineligible. "

:cry:

What is his name? Is he/she willing to sign up?


He is an old timer and not really into"this"kind of thing, although he has a very interesting cycling career and is well known in the cycling world (I hate"celebrity").

That was the long answer.

Short one - no.

Rk.

Here's my go for this month, Panasonic PR-6000 ex John Talen (World Champion Team Time Trail, twice lanterne rouge in the TdF). This is his third frame from 1991 and the close up shows the seattube extension that wasn't featured on the production models available to the public.

Okay, I'll give it a try:

1992 KLEIN QUANTUM, found frame and fork NOS after quite an exhausting search at a friend's place, just a very lucky coincidence.

Chased parts (Full, time correct Shimano DURA ACE) for more than a year or so and then managed to put all the stuff together in December 2011.

Stem and post are Syncros, Wheels are Mavic CXP with tubular tyres.

A lovely ride, now in full use mode for this year and "no", I do not regret riding it, it's a riders bike, not a collector thing.

Do you like it, too?

If I would ever make an exception to the rules, this bike would be worth it, although I also brought my bike to the ring.

Can the referee (Admin) decide about it, please?

I know, one exception can cause a riot, but this is a hero bike!

Nice Klein. I hope you would be willing to share you're other bikes too, like the Koga and Brodie :)

On Ed's bike: why would it not be according the rules?

I'm sorry...I put my comment under the wrong entry, it should refer to the 1951 replika bike, which unfortunately isn't owned by the forum member who posted it...

And "yes", happy to share the Koga / brodie, right now, they are in a...let's call it "transition mode" (see picture).

By the way, the Koga frame is for sale, if s.o. would be interested, full picture series here:

All the best regards, Matthias

That La Perle is lovely and well worth a vote (or several) but at the same time i understand why it has to be "own bikes only",i think i saw a similar machine at the bygone bikes gathering at shelf this year,not this one by any chance?

Here is my late 70's Pinarello Team Montello.

Bikes history: It has been one of the Norwegian pro, olympic champion (1972) and WC champion (1973) Knut Knudsens http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knut_Knudsen bikes. I bought it from one of my fellow riders in the local bike club whos mother is related to Knut Knudsen. Knut Knudsen rode on the Jollj Ceramica/Pinarello team between 1974 and 1978.

Bike is up for restoration this winter

Now are YOU doing something against the rules Matthias :lol: You're not allowed to advertise For Sale stuff in any section not being the For Sale section...

Nice Koga it is. An early carbon one. Only the model with the steel reinforcement wires was earlier. A distinctive paint btw. The new owner needs to be a flamboyant or extravert person.
