Another second placed Fat - will one ever win again
It seems to me that the bikes that are out of reach for most, can't win! ...is understandable.
Perhaps it would be better to exclude such bikes from BOTM.
OK - I will no doubt get flamed by the FAT Fan Club.....
I think it is interesting that a not overly glam British steel bike has beaten off the fancy dan, boutique Fats & Yetis etc.
And surely the whole point of BOTM is to show off the more unusual and/or classy builds.
It's aspirational - all these bikes are what we all kinda hanker after.
I see no point in having BOTM if desirable bikes are excluded - maybe you want a BSO-OTM. Maybe a Fat will win that??
