RBotM - February - Nominations now open
Back to an open month this time round after a different type of January. The well deserved winner was Beryl Burton.
A well supported change which was good to see. I prematurely archived the poll and don't have enough mod power to bring it back from there. So if you missed the results then head to the basement and look in the archive for the full poll and pictures.
This month its a return to a normal, open nomination month.
The nominations will run to the end of the month and then a five day poll will go up.
Any questions, queries, comments or suggestions welcome.
Best of luck to all

Jamie

Ok I'll give this a shot & here is my tribute to a legend of Time Trialling who passed away a few years ago. 50 mile champ & 30 mile record holder in 78 Roger Queen. I just loved his chromed machine so dedicated this to him & his family who approved of the project.

Wow! That's a beauty!
Difficult to match that - stunning machine.

I'm wondering whether I should enter my Raleigh pro? Thoughts?

Go on, get it entered :)
The more beautiful machines entered the more we all benefit ;)

I agree with kingbling, although I do prefer the Dave Russell, so here is some more cannon fodder. Here is my 1962 Rory O Brien.

@ Boscarn I'd hardly call that cannon fodder, liking the lug work and choice of groupo (just because I'm using the same on my latest build)
