well i'm sure IP's can all be used to confirm whether or not any cheating has gone on..

I have to say that's a fairly ambiguous statement, when you look a bit further back and see that there are even more zero posters in the 1st and 2nd week of december...

If proven to be linked, that would be more than disappointing...

Not really suprising though is it. John has worked hard to get Retrobike publicity in whatever MTB comic it is that now features BOTM winners. Some of the kids that read it will check out BOTM to see what it's all about, will vote for the shiny bike they like without knowing what it is, see all the petty bickering and squabbling that has been going on for the past few months on numerous threads and decide that the site is just too childish for them which is why their post count remains in such low figures.

Then again for the conspiracy theorists it could all be a fix but as no bike has 50+ votes it probably equals itself out and isn't worth fretting about.

Ultimately they're just pictures of old bicycles so I don't think there's a need to call in independant UN electoral observers. How would they fit the blue berrets under or over crash helmets?

Tough to see the wood for the trees sometimes but the class of the Boulder build stands out

When Rojo's bike has 200 votes, all the other pictures disappear and it turns out that he photoshopped an Apollo to look like a Kona THEN call in Fox Mulder.

Until then let him have his moment, please.
