Its still interpret as you will. I'd say Orange is as British as they come, Taiwanese or not*. We do seem to get pedantic over the rules but its a democratic process when it comes to the vote and hopefully how the voters interpret the brief is what wins if you get my drift. I'd even say a well equipped frame from another country could be entered within the guidelines, whether it would win or not is another question. Let the votes decide.
*were all (retro)Oranges built in Taiwan? I think the current full sussers are built in Halifax no?
Kaiser thanks for clearing that up.
Re pedantic over the rules - you are right of course some month BOTM has disappeared up it's own ar$e - as FMJ says in previous months bikes that would meet this months spec would have been ruled out before the vote, which is the point I was raising - be it slightly tongue in cheek. Against that back drop loads of cool bikes may not have been entered due to uncertainty over being 'british' - all bikes entered to date fit the same interpretation......
Keep the entries coming. I'd personally like to see a cool frame from a foreign manufacturer bucking the trend and pulling off a load of nice UK components
