here is my thoughts, if anyone is interested.
my original idea for the comp was based on my beliefs that
a) in the main mtb section botm modern bikes do not seem to do as well, so this will give an outlet for people to show case their moderns, in a fun competition.
b) i understand the prime reason for this site is to discuss and show off our lovingly restored/found retro bikes, so a small section to showcase our modern rides keeps them out of the more important comps.
c) i have more chance of showing off a nice modern as cant afford some of the prices and time a very nice retro costs.
This is all just a bit of fun, and I respectfully ask that the people who don't like the idea of a thread like this, just let us get on with it.
jon has gracefully allowed us to run this comp, but i fear if it turns in to an argument we wont be allowed to run it again.
Remember that the diversity of biking is one of the factors that has kept it so strong and popular.
