    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.

    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.

    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?

    I'm Guilty of this act [sheepish] at least the seat position. parts are original (except tires) as I'm the original owner.
    Yea, not to make excuses but that was one of the first pictures I posted here a long time ago and got thorough tongue lashing (well deserved) You missed the purple cables too I had just placed the seat on there for the photo shoot as I only had one preforated turbo saddle. Didn't think you guys would be that picky back then, Who would have thought. It doesn't look that way today as I found another perf turbo and even has skinwalls but have been to lazy to snap another photo.


    There are some really really nice bikes up there tough tough choices. FB where's yours? You know your holding out

    I was hoping someone would have posted a commando though. Wasn't 86 the last year?

    And I'm guilty of non-original parts. Since I ride the bike, I built it with (a) what's comfortable for me, and (b) what is dependable. I have the original matching bullmoose bars sitting on the shelf, but they have too much sweep to use bar ends (which are a requirement on an all day ride). And the drive train was upgraded to indexed shifting, which makes it a lot easier to ride. Compromises I'm willing to make on a bike that I ride.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Makes sense to me especially for a rider. Moosehead is cool to look at but indexed shifting works sooooo much better.

    are you making an accusation? I changed to this one because of your abuse and I haven't used my original account since except by accident once....If BP thinks I'm cheating he is more than welcome to pull my entry...I posted it just to show variety. I don't need validation

    BTW...I thought you agreed not to do this sort of thing anymore? That lasted a long time

    You see everything as a personal attack. Not a good sign.

    More like The Odd Couple

    I had a hard time with this. There are too many good ones, and I always have a soft spot for the underdogs, but crc's has always been one of my favorite bikes of all time. I'll take his word for it that the tires are now skinwalls .

    Every one of those bikes is well cared for, preserved and special in its own way. It's a very tough choice......

    .

    Voted First Flight's edition - but what would I know this side of the pond - probably best not count RB voters...

    Why was it a post-86 competition - we have a bike or two over here that are earlier and would have been of interest.

    There will be future competitions that include the older bikes. With a very narrow focus it is pretty thematic.
