I voted for the Sex One because it sums up what this site is about.
Like minded people helping each other out.
I want it to win because lots of people have helped on the way, its like half the site winning BOTM.

I hope it doesn't get pulled.

Tell you what just pull my sex one out of the poll, you guys seem to have a REAL downer on it doing well. I have not set up loads of accounts to vote for it.

There were loads that were interested in the build thread I know its not everyones cup of tea, but this is getting bit much now :(


Please see the rules > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8326 and in particular this one
4. If you aren't prepared that your bike undergo criticism as part of BoTM don't enter it. We have many 1000s of views on this thread in a month - make sure both you and your bike are ready!

I see absolutely nothing that could be taken as being 'a bit much'. The comments were true in as much seeing one bike take that many votes that early is unusual in the history of BoTM. Does it mean skullduggery? I doubt it. If you wish I'll remove the bike from the poll. My suggestion would be to not be so fragile.

John, you forgot rule 13:

13. Don't take it too seriously

After all, anyone willing to ride that kona in public should have a sense of humour and a thick skin.

Edit: :wink:

Crikey, I should have read through properly first! No chance as the family's still here :wink: Not sure opinions add up to criticism as such, I just think Alex's amazing generosity (and the site's well-known susceptibility to white Konas :P ) has shone through - nowt up with that :D 8)

But if you are going to kick everyone's ass, expect some good-natured ribbing in return* - I'm sure it has all been good-natured too :lol:




* see 'Retro World Champ' for a fine example :wink: :wink: :wink:

Pretty hard to choose one, but will go for mfh126's Boulder Bicycles Intrepid AL. Great bike, and great build, looks just perfect to me. Also oneschnark's Grove Innovations X it´s so sweet, but those tyres… I know, it´s just a little detail, but… And of course, hairstream's Boulder Defiant is like the most pretty girl in the school, just so perfect, maybe to much ;)
In fact, a lot of great bikes to choose and enjoy looking at!
