We are now taking nominations for the April 2012 Bike of The Month contest. This month is a 'ShimaNO Special'. We're looking for bikes without a single Shimano component, ideally full trick builds, Mavic or Campy. However we'll also allow Suntour mainly to ensure we get some entries ;)

Rules in the FAQ here.

Don't forget the winner will receive a subscription to MBR magazine and will have their bike in the magazine! So get polishing and get those entries in 8)

2nd and 3rd places will also get a set of retrobike stickers of their choosing :D

Nonsense, but it's good for the myth to be kept alive. Then Shimano can finally achieve 100% market domination.

Funny that we all celebrate diversity in our retro bikes and yet want to adorn them with the same components 'because they work' :(

Nissan Micra's work, but I'd rather hacksaw my leg off than have to drive one!!

Sorry John, I'll shut it now.

al. :D

Damn. I already entered the Dave Yates in a special month and the Look won't be finished on time. But if I put a Mavic rear mech on the Stumpjumper I think it will qualify.....

Can I enter a cross bike?
