I think this will be a fun thread:

1) Post a picture of your bicycle. You may enter as many of your bicycles as you wish.

2) Indicate which bicycle you vote for (not your own). You may vote for more than one.

What are the criteria? What ever you think makes a bike aesthetically pleasing: color, size, proportions, set-up, components, lust factor, retro factor, brand, are perhaps some possible criteria suggestions.

Plain Panasonic

My daily commuter. I like it! Although I have two brake levers I only use the front caliper. I use the second "dummy" lever to help prevent my hands from slipping off the handlebar when I hit a bump in the road.

Bikes are like baby's. Your own looks better than everyone elses. That said, there were some really sweet looking bikes on the post your bike thread.

I'm partial to my Kogswell. It's certainly in part the retrofactor, but mostly it's the fact that this is the most comfortable bike I've ever owned. On a ride last year someone was referring to a rider who hadn't shown up (the bike of the rider in in question had a curved seat tube) and said "You know, the one on the funky bike." At which point her companion pointed to me and said "But he's already here."

Bring on the noise. Bring on the funk.

I other news, I'm partial to Bianchis, having owned a few, and deep dish wheels...and that first one...I like it a lot.

It's been built for months. I raced it at 24 Hrs of Moab. It's my rigid-SS-DH bike, and is as fast and punishing as it looks.
