Congrats Mods on another poorly defined idea which is certain to cause stress and disagreements.
What the f**k is a restoration? Not that It matters anyway. Since Stan's Koski was entered, no amount of hard work or creativity could win.
Same old, same old, old school rigid bike loyalists who think MTB died the day suspension was invented.
If you live in the past...you get left behind(and past on the trail).
/end rant. Sorry
I think it was a good idea and its fine that people have different ideas about what a constitutes a restoration.
As far as that, "Same old, old school rigid bike loyalists" bit is concerned, well...um..this is RetroBike after all. I mean it's in the title.
Lastly, to the "If you live in the past you get left behind on the trail" comment: I challenge you to a dual, my steely against what ever you got...
In the words of Roger Waters: "you choose the place and I'll choose the time, and I'll climb that hill in my own way..."
Kind of profound if you think about it.
I agree this is Retrobike but, surely I'm not the only one who has noticed a bias towards rigids in the <98 section?
I'd love to settle this on the trail! Sadly, you live a little ways from my usual riding spots. If you're ever headed up this way drop me a line! I'll lend you a bike to beat me on!
Ps Roger Waters is a notorious douchebag, you might want to read a bit about his politics before aligning yourself with him.
