We are now taking nominations for the January 2012 Bike of The Month contest. Normal month this month so anything goes.

Rules in the FAQ here.

Don't forget the winner will receive a subscription to MBR magazine and will have their bike in the magazine! So get polishing and get those entries in 8)

Very nice indeed. I have never seen a santana over this side of the pond, they look like very tidy machines- in the same price range as fats BITD? Would a 91 machine not have the low profile cantis and 2 finger xt levers? Not a crit, I love the canti's BTW however the larger levers I could never really get on with.
