Thanks to everyone for taking part, there is certainly a lovely selection to chose from once again. Some of Italy's finest without a doubt.

Poll is now open and its the usual rules.
Poll will stay open for 5 days, 1 vote per person/member and results will stay hidden until the end.
There have been a few problems with the voting in the past on this and the mtb sections in the past and hopefully they are resolved but if you do have a problem let me know and I will pass it on to someone who cares. ( that's a joke :) )
Thankfully there have only been two or three on this section over time.
Remind others to come and vote and get the word out as sometimes people don't bother voting, I don't know why but it happens. Its not just interest in the entries we have been trying to build but the overall interest, having a look, voting, discussing etc.
Anyway on with the show.

What a tough month! For the first time in ages I had to save the top 3 bikes and scroll through the images on a slideshow to help decide. Still couldn't part them so had to go back through the build threads. One of the top three didn't have one so out it goes. :cry:
So in the end I still couldn't split them so it came down to one owner has won before and the other hasn't. Sorry Boscarn, but I like to share the love. :wink:
Even deciding the top 3 was tough.
Like I said, tough month. I can usually pick a clear favourite quite easily but not this time. Well done to everyone for having such nice bikes.

Looking forward to the Belgian month. :wink: And the French month. And the.................

Well done Jamie for bringing a bit of life back to this comp. 8)

Definitely a hard month, spoilt for choice :)
I don't do much really, just make a suggestion and see who posts what.
I better get my Dura Ace refitted before Belgium months announced :wink:

Seriously though, thanks to everyone who enters, votes and keeps it alive with the banter. We just need to keep spreading the word and try and get more people involved as there are a lot of machines on this forum that no one has ever seen, I am sure of it. Theres also a lot of members who don't want to enter, which is fine as its a personal choice but its only a small percentage that even vote, but the figures show there is a lot of through traffic that's comes to look but doesn't vote :facepalm:
How can you look at a selection like this and not want to pick one?
