Feel no particular need to lock the voting thread. The discussion and banter is part of BoTM. That said might try it one month.

Think might run the poll open next month, change is as good as a rest and all that.

I'm fortunately back in time to cast my vote :D

Without long consideration that ARC is definite one, which I would to have and go with it.
(very good job and nice pics and many thanks for fro :wink:)

A Ibis is a beautiful bird but as a bike it is not convincing. ...and it's a pity that many dont know this fact.

Welcome back Nader. Glad you had a good vacation.I am happy the fro made it to you quickly and safely. Please enjoy it and build it well!

I would have to say you did the Fat beautifully...

though I have never owned one, Team Fat Chance used to train in the woods that I used to bike in the mid-90s. Along with the Team Yeti bikes, it was Fat Chances that left their mark on me and sparked a lifelong love for this era of mountain biking.

I still remember seeing the bike you built brand new at Ace Wheel Works :)...they were so rediculously unaffordable to me at the time but I never forgot their beauty. Someday i would like to build one. They can still be seen from time to time in those woods ;)

I'm by no means a DLR fan (or VH for that matter), but his quote in my sig is epic.

Given the quality of this month's entries, I'm not sure I should even be commenting, much less voting :wink:
