    Time to vote! Voting closes on the 30th.

    I have to say, compiling this list I am totally pumped by the level of the competition. It is nearly any one's game. Don't stuff the ballots turkeys. For all the pics check the original thread.

    Hollister's 1986 Timberwolf



    crconsulting's 1987 Super Comp



    Upchuck's 1988 Timber Comp



    Laffeux's 1986 Team Comp



    First Flight's 1988 Annapurna



    kb11's 1986 Lugged Ritchey! {incorrectly listed on the poll as Rocky Mountain Ascent}



    Veloculture's P23

    I voted for the bike with the most dirt on it.

    me too. Those P-23's gave it a run for the money though.
    Just a regular guy.

    I've gotta say - pretty top notch set of contenders. Lots of rare, ridden, and rocking in there!

    Rocky Mountain Ascent???? The Ascent was a US model that was tig'd, there was also a version sent north that was also tig'd. Color and componets were slightly different than US Ascent. Mine is lugged and I not aware of any model name so I prefer "Canadian Annapurna"

    The P-23 should be a 1990.

    Some good looking bikes in there. I need to think this over some.

    Heh. The worst kept secret on MTBR. You're a good sport. That's why I like you. Now, get on CL and find me a 13" WTB Phoenix.

    I vote(d) for the more loved (ridden) one of the bunch. Tough contenders though. With Some of these polls it might be fun to zero in on an exact year too....

    Very nice selection.

    I have to be nit picky to choose one.

    Modern parts and bad saddle positions tend to make me cringe . . . but that's just me.

    I guess i'm the only one w/ love for Upchuck's Timbercomp.

    For some reason it grabbed me...

    They all look great, though!

    Really tough voting with so many great bikes. I concur that the red Timbercomp is sweet and that Upchuck has done a great job bringing it back to glory.

    I'm with you on the saddle position.

    Hollister's has a nice look to it, especially for no votes.

    Stan's Alivio rapid-fires keep calling my name though... I'm really torn here... lots of cool bikes. BP, where are yours?

    Hollister's is kind of cool too since you don't see too many Timber Wolf's. I had wanted to get a nice pic up but wasn't able to get get a photo in time due to work and weather. I'll represent in later contests.

    Someone is stuffing the ballot box

    How else do you explain KB11 and Hollister's bikes getting *zero* votes and the weakest bike in the bunch getting 3? Vote early and often right?
