I got 2 votes! It was enough for me to get the Edge OTR included in BotM, and it's made my day that 2 people like it enough to vote for it. Thanks, whoever you are. Yeti-man appears to be the first purist I've offended though, thought there'd be a few posting on the build thread, but every comment was positive. It's a shame you don't like it, but I built it like that for a reason: to be a commuter and winter trainer. Each to their own though.

Regards

Marge

Sorry but Everything on that 'Dawes The Edge' is totally outside the edge


I think the rules should be amended so that entrants do not remark negatively on others. It seems normal etiquette is lacking in this regard.

Love the cannondale and the Brave, would love to own both. Wadsys WTR is also lovely. The Formula, well I appreciate its awesomeness but I think it looks all wrong. I've never been a fan if Oranges though.

The White Spider on the other hand. Oh my word that's GORGEOUS!!! :shock: :mrgreen: want want want want want!!

The Orange Formula is simply stunning... ticks every box for me... I was going to go for the clockwork above it... and then scrolled down and saw that!

I remember the discussion around it's purchase, I remember it had issues!

Going to immerse myself in that build thread for the next hour or so!

For me there can only be one choice...and it's an orange......and seeing as though i couldn't choose my own Clockwork(which is out of its depth in this company) i've gone for adrian's formula....Very nice build and a great story to it....

A very worthy winner.

But how'd that uber clean American only get five votes compared to some of the other entrants is beyond me? :?
