Hot damn it's a tough call - the Yo, Zieleman and Lemond in particular standout and the latter two were also rans in their competitions :shock:

First reaction is usually a good indicator though so will go with the Yo (Zieleman 2nd, Lemond 3rd).

thanks guys.
I guess it ain't that bad if you get mentioned twice in the BOTY poll ;)

After the win in the BOTM September i found the missing front Paul mech, so now it is completely finished,..

view Serotta ATX with new red Paul front mech

and could a mod replace the picture above from the Defiant with one of these?
the other one is not that good,..

proper Boulder picture (now up in post #1)

thanks again,...

and talk about hard poll's,.......boy o boy ,..this one is!

Defiant, is there a bottle boss stopping you lowering the front mech (paul) closer to the chainring ?

I must say that the first cook brothers crank I actually like :o

no, it is the radius of the blade against the shape of the silver metal part of the Paul . It is not the same and therefore it can not get any lower , otherwise it eats the theath.
