Perhaps we should limit modern gear to a certain percentage or amount, like no more than two modern parts per build inorder to enter the botm comp, thoughts?
Exclude parts like chain, cassette and pads. Also not really strict with rims, tires, grips and pedals. Modernish stems+posts, longtravel forks or discs - not so good. Doubts with when someone has both modernish cockpit+post and
Maybe put modern parts in categories. An entry could not have more than one or two categories or something along these lines. Still must be easy to understand and work with.
I'm with you on chains, cassettes, and pads, but rims/tires/grips/pedals are important.
Yes, categories could work; tightening up the entry terms with more detail/specific language is a good thing, perhaps it would keep the entry numbers a bit lower, with the more worthy bikes getting more votes. Every now and then, a hot rod month can be had to get the retro/modern bikes some fun.
This bike has a weirdo 31.6 seat tube dia or else it would have a 31.8 WTB post too!
ummmm...about that 31.8 WTB post, hmmmm, mind if I make some inquiries regarding its availability
