Favourite Bike of All Time?

Postby Manc33 » 27 Sep 2019, 3:04pm

What's your favourite bike of all time?

Pics, or it didn't happen. :P

For me it is probably this one...
Klein Attitude Dolomite

I don't even know what I'd do if I saw one on the roads, fall off my own bike probably!

Those Klein frames cost a fortune, like £1,800 in nice condition. Someone is trying to get £8,000 for a fully built up one, with better spec than the original bike.

In 2nd place it's probably this one, just for how bizarre it is, but the above one still beats it by a long way...
