Toss up for me between Ameybrooks's fat and Hilt's Rockhopper. Both look fantastic in different ways. Along with others here though I think it has to be the Fat having seen all the work that has gone into it. Looks incredible!

Also have to add to other voices that the standard of bikes being entered of late is exceptional. Reminds me of classic cars where owners will often spend so much attention and care on their cars that they end up being literally 'better than factory' condition. Amazing stuff and really exciting times!

Keep it up folks!

I know sod all about bikes... i voted for the trimble PURELY because i'm a girl and i like stripes!

Nothing wrong with that. If thats the bike you would prefer to own, then thats good enough reason.

Bit suprised at the Yeti up for sale :shock: He's also got a small Klein NOS on there too.
I used to vote pretty much straight away on these, but its getting harder to choose. I like the Yeti, but have a feeling it'll be between the Ritchey and the Rockhopper :D

Just to clear a few things up we've posted some updated BoTM rules here.

For those too lazy to click they are as follows

1. Bike must be complete.
2. Bike must be currently owned by site member / nominee. No selling the bike whilst the contest is running if you want to remain in the contest.
3. Two pictures per bike only.
4. It is preferred bikes are posted in Reader's Bikes beforehand. More detail and extra pictures can be added here.
5. Judges decision is final.
6. Bikes can only be entered once
7. Don't take it too seriously

While you're all enthusiastic, lets ee if there are any real players :wink:
Always happy to talk about it, and all the anecdoes, just ask away. . .
cheers for the votes so far. . :wink:


:roll:

Will let it go this month but it somewhat against the spirit of the contest to use BoTM as a vehicle for flogging your bike.

Vote for your own bike...??! I'm as sad and cynical as the next man but it never crossed my mind that owners would vote for their own...

:roll:

Perhaps a Moderator can cross check the data and reveal any nepotistic trends...?

Neil


None of the mods (yourself included :wink: ) or admin (me) can see who has voted for what. This is a deliberate feature of phpbb, makes it more fun imho.
