i think the craptivator made 3rd place because such a fuss was made of it. if it had just been left alone it may have got 1 vote.
but it made an interesting botm. and i personally think the craptivator is just another BSO.
I think there's a difference, though.
There are truly some horrendous BSOs - supermarket specials, mail-order bikes, that are truly nightmares. Problematic to just use, normally, never mind anything more challenging.
Awful, horrible, cheap and nasty, barely safe, a pox on you if you try and adjust or service them.
Then you have bikes like the Activator and the Mustang. Made out of pig iron, no doubt, metaphorically heavier than the Titanic. Thing is, though, they didn't tend to fall apart. And stuff worked, and didn't break as soon as you looked at it.
I'm in no way deluded about bikes at that level - and I wouldn't wholly argue with those that want to look down their noses, sneer and call them BSOs - but all the same, there was a certain cheerful robustness that bikes like the Activator and Mustang had, that the true BSOs (ie what and where the term was originally aimed at) tend to have none of.
Other than that, please return your trays to their upright position, and carry on with the 30 minute argument. As you were, move along, nothing to see here...
