Great build Eric - I have the stem/bars/bar ends/cranks/pedals/disco/tyres/front hub in my garage but find a frame......no chance!

Maybe you'll win a BOTM with this one? (so long as someone doesn't roll out something very British that will tug at the heartstrings of the public :wink:)

Is there any point anyone else entering ???

That is fabulous Eric, and the effort that went into it was completely worthwhile..

All you need to do is get JT to have a go on it !!

Some great competition, it will be very tough to beat them. In a proper BOTM people must have the oppertunity to choose between more than two options though. I submit my Grove Hard Core for this month=>

I agree that Eric's fuild is pretty bl**dy fantastic but of course there's point in entering - we're British*, it's about taking part, not winning :lol:



*in the majority - apologies to our non British members of whom I know there are quite a number and who I fully respect!

Haven't had a pop at the BOTM for a while so I think I will stick the Trimble 'Rasta' Image into the party ...................... if just to add some colour.
