Just an idea I was thinking of...

As the retro bike community is now so huge and wide reaching, wondering whether a few months for a themed BOTM would be good? Clearly not forever, but should have enough input to make it work.

ie
Fat of the month
Tribal Gathering - Yeti of the month
Ti of the month
Month of Pace
Dare I say Kona of the Month?
etc

So wadda you think?
Comments and suggestions please... :D

I dont want this to water down BOM really. I do think its an ace idea- such as the Fat of the Month and Klein of the Month etc.

You could have materials too - carbon of the month or Aluminium hardtail of the month.

Love it - great idea.

Wheres Vallins ?- as administrator what does he think?

Lets get this going asap!

Like it, we can't beat them by pitting them against other brands, but we might be able to destroy their spirit by turning them upon themselves :)

:twisted:
