Exactly. Plenty of ride photos in the build thread.
Why not take the time and effort to take good pictures that show off what is a work of art in my eyes 8)
I learned a long time ago that simply entering a good bike isn't enough in BoTM.
The standards are high, so you have to present what you've got in as good a light as possible.
Saying that, this Ibis would have got my vote if photographed in the dark, leant up against a urinal!

Sadly what few shekels I can scrounge go straight into Vintage Mountain Bikes.
Paying for a Professional Photo shoot or purchasing a high end DSLR and lighting aint gonna happen anytime soon. :cry:

Aint gonna stop me from voting for someone with access to the above though :D

Voted.

I went for what I really want to throw a leg over & see hanging in my garage every time I swing the door open & press the light switch.

If I painted the fence and sanded the deck for Mr Miyagi and he offered me my choice to ride home on it'd be the Yeti ARC AS.

I'm a bit of a more is more guy though!
