Have to admit I was wary before we ran this special, however some of the other mods were keen. Credit to them it's a strong month with some really top drawer stuff <cough>Pace<cough> . Admittedly some are a touch modern for me but I trust the good people of RB to vote for the best bike :D

Has to be the Yeti DH4!

It just screams " Plunge me off the edge of a mountain and give me all you`ve got until my shift air runs out!"

How retro can you get - the Proflex did more to get people into full suspension than any other manufacturer I can think of.

Did anyone ever have the full titanium bar and suspension stem unit? It was just lush engineering..

I used to race a 954. Ah me... must scan pics of me on that old beastie..

Agree. You have a valid point there.

And yes, I had one of the titanium bar/stem combo's on an 852 that member Chrisv40 now owns.
