Difficult to split the Ibis and Goat, but where'd all the love for Rojo's Kona go to?
He got his free subscription, so all those new guys have quit the board.
Not that I'm bitter or anything.
I voted for the Ibis SS. With or without the swanky Mavic bits, it is the real deal. Boulder Ti second place.
A few thoughts on the BOTY comments so far...
- Somebody said that the Overburys looked like a Rocky Mountain and it was ahead of its time... If that were the case, then shouldn't it be older than the Rocky Mountains that it looks like?
- The fads that rip thru the waters of Retrobike are insane. Kleins were all the shizzle, then estays no matter how ill concieved, and then everything Kona, then Marin, KHS, then Alpinestars. This is a crazy place the way the winds of favor blow.
I'll say one thing...the way trends run so hot on this board, you could make some serious dough if you picked some obscure spec brand and bought up about 15 examples of it, then built your flagship, posted pics and pumped the hell out of it online. Then with the price right and inflated, you dump your truckload of Kona Fire Mountains on the Retrobike masses for a healthy profit...
...not that I'd ever advocate such behavior... Please watch for my completed Yokota build in the near future...followed by about 12 beat Terminators and El Caps in the For Sale section.
