Been on forums before where to view the votes meant using/losing your vote..
Never look at the stats before voting, takes some of the fun away imo..
could be my words!
I vote for my opinion and not for: when I give my vote to ..., than can this win or what ever
voted for the nicest grove in phils stable
if taking into account the outcome contributes to my opinion, then what's the problem. I'm of the opinion people should also consider the bigger picture, and how we can represent vintage/retro/classic mountain bikes as a hobby/movement/lifestyle/whathaveyou. Being that the winner gets a segment in a major publication, it's a good opportunity to clue other people into what it is we are going on about here in this, and other, forums.
If you believe a beat and common, mass produced, old mountain bike can best do that, or if you don't care, then that's fine. You seem to be in the majority here.
I stated my opinion, and there are three, make that two, bikes I would be fine with voting for, then why not take into account the better representative.
I'm green party, and I vote for my candidate, especially when I feel there is no chance of the greater evil winning the election. Now if an election is close, then I will consider voting for the lesser of the two evils if it will ensure that the worst candidate does not win.
I'm of the opinion the Ham should win, and if my vote will be a deciding factor, then I will vote it accordingly. Now if the Ham already sealed the victory, I'll vote with my heart for the one I like most- the Ultimate.
This is actually the first month I'm doing this, to this level, and I won't state that I'll do this every month.
On that note, it looks like five votes have been cast for Star's Fat, and it is now tied with the Ham for the lead at 35, with the Ultimate falling behind by a few votes. Now all you guys voicing your disapproval of knowing the votes, and not voting yet, have any of you taken a peek while logged off? Just curious.
