Start getting your votes in for Bike Of The Year 2006 (plus a bit of 2005!). winner will get a special retrobike t-shirt and some stickers. I realise the last few BOTMs will be at a disadvantage, bet hey, that's life.

Awesome, it's really great just to see so many sweet lookin, thoughtfully built, well looked after rigs..

But it has to be that Breezer for me.. I just wanna ride it real fast down a singletrack!! :twisted:

The Pace for me.

Nice build. Classic retro bike, designed as a bike, not just a frame.
Would love to have an original RC100.

:D

I went for Fishermans Hei Hei, half for the bike and half for the picture itself, the bike where it belongs .. there's something magical about it, as though Waylander is about to emerge from the mist (obscure David Gemmell reference), much better than pics taken in the back garden...

True, very true, but it is "the bike" that we're supposed to be voting for. :wink:

I very rarely take my camera with me on the trail these days, but here's a pic of my XC bike from a coupla years ago when I used to... Sorry, it's a modern bike.
:D

Very hard to choose but in the end the Hei-hei wins for me, always loved that particular bike, it just looks sooo right.
