Im loving the history with the San An, but burn me at the stake for saying, its not for me.


I get that. In the 90s, I was young and impressionable, I totally missed everything before 92. so when I was riding, steel was for old men or BSOs. Fat aluminium, carbon, CNC and anodising were everything.

McRoy, Watson, Juarez, Rockwell, Giove, Chausson.

Childhood heros.


That's just my 2p.

But, all 12 bikes this year. All totally brilliant. It's kind of tragic that both the C26 are here, as I suspect they're stealing votes from each other. The marin is epic. Love the Rock lobster. Props to Mk One for thrashing the Brodie at Mayhem.

Big thing for me is could never vote for a bike that won't be ridden. I suspect (judging by the condition of the rims) most of the bikes here won't be.

So many cool bikes and builds in the lineup. The Scoboni is still one of my very favorites to date and the thread details from Regan and Jwlinn are the epitome of what this community stands for. I think I voted for all of these last year but may be wrong. Regardless, it’s an honor to be among such company. Cheers!

I was beginning to wonder if it was just me!
It takes it by a nose in a very tough field by being so damn classy!

Almost time.... place your bets!!

It’s the Mantis for me.... but only just!

Was a tough choice, I love the fluo yellow and white porcs on Smithjss70’s 1989 Yeti C-26 tribute, colourful in a very different way to the Mantis, but super-cool! 8)

Jake's family here anxiously awaiting. . . very exciting to see which bike will win. All of these bikes are so cool in their own respects and a great job done by all the builders! Thank you to everyone who supported Jake and his race bike for BOTY.

One more photo worth sharing - me dropping in the Kamikaze on Jake's bike. Photo by the great John Kerr
