Another regular month for April so let’s see what you’ve been up to during lockdown.

Useful for the poll if you can structure your nomination as follows:

username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Lavadome
Image(s) MAXIMUM OF 2
Finally please include a link to your machine in the relevant Reader's Bikes section. If you don't have an existing post now is the time to add one with as much detail as you like!

Nominations thread will run for the entire month. Entries submitted after April 30th will not be counted. The poll will go up shortly after the nominations close and will run for a week.

Sinnerman-Breezer Ignaz X

Styled on the original Schwinn Excelsior and other Repack Bikes that gave us the Foundations of the Mountain bike.

Owned for the Last 24 years(or So), so sadly no Thread to speak of, and whilst it may not be a BOTM winner its a worthy kickstart to this months Comp.

Keep Safe people, stay home, and keep smiling.

Since lockdown I've been throwing a few bikes together. I might actually get all the projects done if it goes on much longer! So here's a project I finished yesterday....

markjohnson76 1992 Orange Aluminium O

Full black XT m730. Early Pace forks (that still need new elastomers). Pace RC130 bars, Onza grips. Specialized BX rims with a set of nice original issue Smokes.

I think it needs a black seat post but all in good time:)
