Great month! You've all finally settled it! Yeti's are best, those "also rans" just aren't as good.
I'm so glad we did this, now the world makes sense again.

I'm looking forward to more dumb ideas to polarize the entire community this year!

Sorry for the sacasim.

Happy new year Retrobike.

More importantly... Yeti polled an average of 12 votes per entry compared to 8 for Fats and just 4 for Kleins.

I hereby declare Yeti to be the most desirable boutique retro MTB brand, not quite twice as desirable as a Fat, but three times more so than a Klein.

You overlooked one factor: both Fat and Klein suffered from entries with not so well executed builds, while with Yeti it is overall very good and several really exceptional.

So aswell as being more popular, Yeti owners take more pride in their bikes?

It doesn't seem like this poll is responsible for polarizing the "entire community", any more than it was already polarized by brand, if it was ever polarized to begin with. There's always going to be the highly competitive sort that get sore after not winning a competition, but it's mostly to showcase some nice bikes, and most everyone here would own a variety of the bikes in this poll, if able.

I like these brand based comps, mostly to be able to view many builds within a brand, all in one place.

There will always be voting blocks, based on communities, nationalities, brands, personalities, etc...

no big deal.
