Ok then i will make a vote through a thought process which is i cant vote fat due to them being nothing inventive just steel or the same bike but in ti. I cant vote yeti because they just dont do it for me. so my only option is Klein due to the sheer beauty and inventiveness of this bike.

I can hear the aghast shouting already

thanks andy


So what you are saying is a bike like the YETI ULTIMATE, isnt inventive..?

Thank God! I would have been gutted if I was forced to watch this month's contest from the sidelines - it's already my favourite BOTM ever!

Admittedly, it still feels a bit odd entering the same bike two months in a row though, so to avoid blatantly repeating myself I've stuck a different wheel set on. Also, the high standard of the competition this month has finally given me the motivation to do a strip down and get the last bits of paint off the frame and give it a bit of a rub down. And of course, this month, how could anyone resist entering a Klein with Accutrax?
