I meant that honestly! It was a genuine contender for me personally but isn't the kind of bike I would have expected to hold it's own against some of the mint examples (and more than 50% of the contenders) in a BotM competition.

In short your bike wasn't even eligible to be in the comp, and several votes were wasted.

And to be fair it isn't the first time either.

Never mind.

I would have voted for the winner had Yeti's machine not tickled me.

Can anyone explain in dullard's terms why restricting the number of entries is beneficial?
