Always hard for me not to vote of a whackily painted Klein(!) but this month we also have an awesome Bonty and Salsa and either an Ibis or WTB - good month so far I'd say...

And yes a Dogs Bolx would not go amiss! Not only for a genuinely dog related bike, but I'd like to see how it fared against the vintage US steel we've got in the running this month.

Theres a link here somewhere Page 4. :? , probably the most accurate comparison between vintage English and American to be fair, like for like in terms of Age/ original price/size/weight etc. Comparing a Roberts D.O.G.S B.O.L.O.X to the two lovely examples of Vintage U.S steel shown in this months B.O.T.M to my mind would be like comparing an Apple to an Orange.

There's the difference you see; I've voted for your bikes on more than one occasion :P


:oops: can't say I've voted for any of yours, but it had nothing to do with the seller, so my statement doesn't apply. :mrgreen:

That said, I have not entered a bike in over two years.

Ya, I don't think most people are that petty. Congratulations.

As a moderator I'm very used to sucking all the fun out of threads which have spawned multi headed Hydras.
But all the bickering and bitching has long since meant that there is very little fun or joy to had in the BoTM threads anyway.

As such my 'Funsucker' cap can remain on the hat stand.

Much like this thread, I've gone off on a ridiculous tangent, but it pains me to have to remind everyone to please keep things civil, concise and on topic.
