Great month again, some beautiful bikes there. I'd have gone for the Slingshot for what it was worth :D

not all unicorns are unicorns, and not all unicorns can win. I've learned to look at this contest as a bike show; it's more about looking at cool old bikes, some cooler than others, and talking about them. I liked your fro, but voted for the Brodie.

I should go try my luck at the horse track, you know, with picking winners and such :P :oops: :D

That Mt. Tam has been in this comp a few times with a couple different owners, and it still pulled 10 votes. Impressive.

Well considering the other bikes I'm happy with 6th place.

To the other Gary fisher owners message mr fisher himself on twitter, he shared the pic of my klunker with all his twitter followers :D

There's the problem with that feeling of entitlement - the occasional unfulfilled sense of expectation.

You may also have suffered from the vote split, more commonly found with FAT's. Two are entered and neither win. As much as I like your Yeti if it is a choice between yours and elite's, in your opinion what are yeti fans going to vote for?
