Normal month for January so a chance to enter those more subtle builds that weren't suited to last months bling theme.

Useful for the poll if you can structure your nomination as follows:
:arrow: username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Lavadome
:arrow: Image(s) MAXIMUM OF 2
:arrow: Finally please include a link to your machine in the relevant Reader's Bikes section. If you don't have an existing post now is the time to add one with as much detail as you like!
:arrow: 20 entry maximum this month. Nominations thread will run for the entire month OR until the maximum number of entries is reached - whichever happens first. The poll will go up shortly after the nominations close and will run for a week.

Spanky22b's 1989 Kona Explosif.
Saying its the new year and i've never entered B.O.T.M before i thought i'd share my Explosif.

Not sure how to add the build threads to this but it's in my Kona overhauling build thread in readers mtb section.

Noka's 1993 Rocky Mountain Blizzard

It's everytime a pleasure to ride this Blizzard - perfect for uphill and race. My first built up comes with a Mag21, but 2 years later i found this white Syncros powerlite fork with the matching Syncros stem. Sure i loose more comfort, but i have won a special and clean Blizzard-Look which i like a lot!

Love the Dave Yates, Kona and Rocky Mountain, going to be a tough month and can see my plastic bike has been way outclassed from the off ;)
