Forgot to vote for this poll, I see the kona haters are out again :roll: :roll:

I got it all in December botm.

Well done for winning Crantinope , second last month aswell :wink:


I forgot to say well done to Crantinope too :D good show.

Rojo, I'm not sure there are many haters just some find it hard to understand how they can win. Using the old car analogy the Kona is the Ford and Crantinopes being a rather nice Mexico say. Lets also say the Ham is (and I'm sure someone will take umbrage) a Miura. I think most of the North American contingent find it hard to believe how we can choose a Mex over a Miura, but we quite often do. We do in Britain seem to be quite drawn to the common or garden, or the underdog, we don't really seem to covet the top drawer. BTW the Sex one could be an XR3i with a bit of halfords magic :wink: This was what I was kinda of trying to get at with the British mentality.

Well put.

The slight contradiciton though is that the Kona is the product of the Far-Eastern subcontractor of an international company, while the Cunningham and Roberts are the little guy sweating in his workshop over a hot welding torch. We're supposed to value personality too!

Forgive me for a potential blond moment, but how do you know what bike is leading when you have yet to vote? The numbers are not shown until you vote are they not? :?
