The entries must either be a special or limited edition, ideally in the title to prevent argument. Go to work!


Oops! Missed this also. Withdraw my beater if this is not a typo. My apologies

Admittedly it does significantly narrow down the possibly entries but I thought this was supposed to be special/limited editions, with patina, only :?


I assumed it was a leftover from the last special month, and John had cut and pasted in by accident...?

:oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:


I agree it looks like a cut and paste error. Clearly worn out and special edition would be too tough of a category.

The Pro's Closet is throwing Travis Brown's Bradbury FS Manitou into the ring.

This particular example is no garage queen: it belonged to former pro, olympian and current Trek mountain bike tester and brand ambassador – Travis Brown, who raced the Manitou FS during the 1992 season. The drivetrain is worn, there's a patina of dust and grime, and like many FS frames, the head tube is cracked (in five places).

Thread can be viewed here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=275434

This bike was also recently featured on BikeRadar:

Oooh dear, everyone else rolls-up their entries and goes home. Fantastic machine Nick, with history to boot.

TOTAL garage queen! A race whip that's been collecting dust and rust for 20 yrs is not a patina'd bike imho. The head tube's cracked, surely no one's riding that bike?

This is exactly the kind of entry that takes the fun out of this comp for me. I thought this would be a great month for guys/gals to showcase some greatly loved rides.

Furthermore; This reminds me that every time I see an entry from you I feel I'm being advertised to. Nick, I get that you have a business to run but, I feel your participation in botm, under your business name, is wrong. If there were entries from user; Specialized, Giant, Schwinn or any other, where they entered bikes that are sitting in their corporate museums, I'd be unhappy about that too.

Maybe there needs to be a "pro" botm? I don't know of many competitions where amateurs must top professionals for the win. This just feels unfair to me. Sorry.
