its a shame people are calling bikes crap,
maybe the rules should define what makes a bike crap.
maybe even have a crap b.o.t.m.
again i'll vote for the bike i'd most like to own.
the merlin newsboy does it for me.

Really? I've entered my Schwinn Excelsior this month. Its 75 years old next year and still gets riden damn hard despite a lengthy and painstaking restoration.

EDITED

Try and keep things factual Pal.

I'm far from being the exception mate, I'd say a fair percentage get used. Out on retrobike rides i see many ex BoTM contenders actually. Last years Bike of the Year, Mark's Alpinestars Ti Mega gets hammered most weekends and has been raced a few times since winning too.

I think it is hugely judgemental to presume that as a bike is in lovely condition it doesn't get used. And remember most of the bikes entered will have been specially fettled and polished before the entry photos were taken.

If you go out on rdes you see some stunning bikes, all being ridden hard.

2 photos only are still the rules for BOTM entries - whether making a point or not...

+1

The majority of rides I've been on have had some amazing bikes being ridden. I've been out on rides with people from here where that ride was the first outing of a new finished restoration and they've hammered the bike.

I for one wouldn't vote for a bike in BoTM if I didn't think it was a rider.

Jesus.

We have some guy complaining that all the bikes are just show ponies, and now another complaining that there is a few photos of a dirty bike.

I'm going to introduce a new personal BoTM rule. Don't f**kin bother.
