Does a linkage front fork count as a dead end? Because if so then all my mountain bikes are eligible :D lol.

here you go (my apologies in advance if it isn't dead enough) :

So, is this month's voting being based on the degree of dead-endness, or the best looking bike of all the dead end examples?

Basically, what I'm asking is are we looking for the best looking stupid bike, or the stupidest bike?

Surely we must vote for the best looking, best built and most interesting dead-end bike. It might be stupid, might be genuis, might have been acceptable in its day but left behind by the march of progress - like a T-Rex.

I couldn't vote for a crap bike that happens to be defunct. That would be like voting for a Dodo with alopecia.

I'll be voting for the bike that has the best balance of "I am glad not to HAVE TO RIDE it" now, but at one point would have had the most "WOW I WISH I COULD RIDE THAT" then.

Oh, and neon.
