This month our excuses are sponsored by EasyLet, Cubbit & West and by the service providers BT and BE

new house = no interwebs and I'm not trying to do this on a mobile :lol: So - I've nabbed a pc at work and got the IT boys to set it up as a café pc to get around the "no fun" policies ;)


A mixed bag of entries last month, perhaps because of the slightly broad and open brief. A big congratulations to sinnerman for the win (I know I'm supposed to be impartial, but i couldn't help but shed a virtual tear for EdEdwards)

This month we saw a return to, what is for me, the essence of 90's MTB - This is Why. We sparked some lively debate, only proving how deep that reason runs..

and with that in mind..which why is why?

Mynameis casper/senri/unospeedo's pics are the only ones that make me think back to the original Mint Sauce cartoon where the "this is why" quote really comes from. The rest are just pictures of bikes or people.

I'll go for Senri's pic as it looks fantastic!
