Here's the big one folks. Sometimes you forget how many amazing bikes grace this competition over a twelve month period. It really is astonishing to see such a massive range of entries and all the effort that goes into preparing them. Because of a tie at the top in September we have 13 entries to choose from. In the event of a tie there will be a secondary vote to decide the overall winner - only one can take this crown. The poll will only run for 7 days so get your votes in without delay!

when you review the years winners, apart from some obvious exceptions, there's a lot of plain janes, good builds, nice bikes but a lot of understatement that I don't really recall from bitd. ;) tastes have... largely matured I guess. :)
