Normally, the Tomac would have had my vote, but this month you have to be VERY picky with the details. The tires on the Tomac don't match.

On the other hand, the Trimble has pedal cages that were painted to match the frame and fork. Also, this guy managed to find a U-Brake anodized red!

The Tomac means more to me as a bike, but the build of the Trimble is just flawless!



EDIT: (What the others said :D )


I have this poster hanging. The bike pictured is the basis for mine...mismatched tires (tyres) and all. :)

I have a NOS black front to replace if I have to.

A few other pics regarding tire choice.

Same race as the poster.

Different bike, same tire combo as well as the fork that I think might be the one currently on my Raleigh.

I hope everyone realizes, even wiith the four bikes just entered, how high the bar is set for BOTM. This is just crazy.

I'm sorry, they're all amazing builds, but IMO, if Eric's Tomac replica loses, I'm quitting the VRC game.


I wanted to put this in last month, sneak in a quick BoTM win and retire.

Some top notch bikes get lined up. I was just hoping to scare off some of the competition! :D

Here in Manchester we're not too proud to make up the numbers - to steal a vote from this elite crowd would be a major coup!!!

:wink:
