if the rule was created so people don't enter BOTM with the intension of making a good sale, there might be no problem in this case. Obviously, it's not up to me but in my opinion this bike can enter this month's competition. It's theoreticly sold, so no intension of selling the bike, but still owned by the one who entered it for BOTM.


this is very true, this will not benefit the sale in any way. to those who do not like the photoshop picture, here is an original of the one above

I've sold my Xizang two years ago and yet another one year back but still keep a fantastic photos of them. Both bikes never been introduced in BOTM. Can I put my entry now?

I have ammended the rules, especially rule 7 to be more clear > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/wiki/index.php/BoTM_Rules .

@SEANSTEPHENS sorry but given the bike is sold (i.e. no longer your own) it cannot be entered. Can understand why you think we ought to include it but equally hope you understand we have to be clear and consistent with the rules.

Rule 7 is a little vague, I do need to ammend it, not sure how we can prove intention to sell :?


John,

I have been head admin of a forum myself, so I know how difficult it is to make foolproof rules.

My suggestion would be to change the wording of that rule.
"Intention to sell" is difficult to prove, unless there is evidence to be found in the forum that the bike is for sale.


That was indeed my intention, I have removed that line of text given it is difficult to enforce.

Thanks for the clarification John.

And the whole point of BoTM is to show off your labours of love, be it wall art or a rider. If you're throwing together a bike for a particular month because you want a banner under your handle, you've completely missed the point.

It worked Cohe, but ...

Make sure you get the bike finished REALLY soon (before the submissions end, which IIRC is within 25 hours) and get some better pictures.
We can see that it's a black MTB and the true experts may be able to determine brand and type, but it's impossible to tell how it really looks.
