Yea, when I tried to enter bikes for BOTM, two months in a row the mods went out of their way to slag my entries. Very above board.


Enter this bike: http://tastydirty.com/main.php?g2_itemId=782

and see what kind of reception you get.

I mean c'mon - a Newsboy? Tell me that was a serious entry.

I'm sure he's just having a bad hair day or something like that ;)

Anyway are you going to throw the Orange Sligshot into the vote? Sure its not a likely winner, but I'm sure it will get a few votes :)

This is Mantis X Frame, later called the Valkryie, number 1. It was Richard Cunningham's personal bike and he used it to test the new design. The frame design was only made for one year before Mantis went to elevated chainstays.

The bike has been painstakingly restored with a period correct, NOS kit.

In the MBA article this there a problem with the rear rim, or is it just their photo?

Go back month after month boys and see that others have also brought up the numbers of pictures posted. If you mods aren't going to level the playing field by sticking to the vary rules that were posted in the first thread...what then? There was nothing mean spirited meant by pointing put the rules. If you didn't notice Matt is new to the forum...so what's wrong with pointing put a few things. NO bad was meant from my side and if you took it that way Matt...I certainly do apologize



I don't think pointing out the number of pictures was mean spirited- however, I think this was......

Let me get this straight......you are asking for us to vote for a "plain Jane" production bike wrapped in a a candy bar wrapper paint scheme for bike of the month???......sheesh! There's been many "marketing relationship" bikes done over the years but I wouldn't say this is one of the better ones.

Good idea. Don't take it too seriously dude.
