The only thing that surprises me is that Sebastian's Yeti didn't get more votes! To my opinion (don't hold it against me.... :wink: ) it is much better balanced than Ameybrook's!! White Turbo and white Bullseye crank's with the white fork and stem! It's just perfect! Therefore the question; is it the picture? Or something else... Or really a question of taste?



interesting question as I couldn't make up my mind which I liked better. I voted for Silverfish, but both the ultimates you're mentioning were competing for second place. For me amybrooks ultimate was just a bit better, as it looks a bit more racy. And it looks like it gets used, mainly because of the not so nos tires and rims.
And a great picture always helps :wink:

I vote for Silverfish too 8)

A steel Yeti must have a steel stem, alloy atacs can be use on ARCs or what ever, so Sebastian's Ultimate were my second choice !

It was not a fair contest due to the fact my machines were not involved. If I had entered then i'm sorry but this whole poll would have turned out differently.

I also have a theory about this topic and why it turned out with yeti as the winners. It was because the klein queens thought we wont enter because they cant stand to lose and the yeti mob will enter anything just to try and win somthing and the fat chance crew, well they just did not stand a fat chance.

thats my two bits worth

thanks andy
