[quote="The History Man"]If it ain't broke!

Funny how only the losers complain?

I, on the other hand think that all of the bikes entered each month are equally worthy. But as Orwell said, some are more equal than others.[/quote]

This 'Loser' isn't complaining; I proposed to inject an element of sanity, and it's only the winners who are objecting...

...what are [i]they[/i] afraid of?

Sorry, was only going by the badges and respective comments. If the first past the poll system is good enough to get our governments elected................

Maybe not a good point to make.

It's a monthly poll not electing someone to office. I don't believe the results would change with this process but then again, my degree is in engineering not statistics.

Bring in the statistician!

[quote="JustKev"]I don't get your issue with the Ibis winning Stevo?

Its a beautiful example of an awesome bike that gained nearly twice as many votes as the 2nd place bike?[/quote]

I don't have any issue with it winning; but I fail to see why it did...

...I vote for the bike I like the look of most, not the one I would most like myself or any of that tosh, and to me the Ibis [i]looks[/i] no different to the £40 Emmelle that got me back into cycling back in 1989.

...don't kid yourself; the cognoscenti can only drum up so much collective hysteria each month.
