I think it's a fantastic month already.


sure is, compared with ten years ago the numbers may have drop - but month after month the quality is certainly still right up there with the best.

I think its just as hard to win a BOTM badge these days as it was back then, the Lotus and the Roberts are sublime, the Mammoth is just nutz

and then theres the GT which is more than holding its own :shock:

thekidmalone’s 1984 Saracen “Plated Gate”

Hello all,

Here’s my contribution for this month: big, bright and British, and built back when head tubes and seat tubes were long, and top tubes and seat posts short.

Believe it or not, the seat post is raised slightly above the max height line, and I was still not achieving full, efficient leg extension, even with 180mm crank arms. Long live long levers, and God save the gates!

Cheers,
The Kid
