Bi monthly would work for me

No as many modern bikes on the forum as retrobikes so you might run out of ideas for the competitions, besides I think the pre98 BOTM should have top billing in the monthly contests

I'm not being anti modern by saying that, I love all bikes to some degree or another & have had quite a few modern bikes and enjoy them just as much as the retro bikes I've owned, just trying to reflect the balance of retro to modern bikes to the forum by voting bi monthly

went with bi-monthly as it seems there arent as many projects going on as <1997
it is retrobike after all
maybe some topic suggestions?
e.g. - red bike, black bike, rigid etc

Bi-Monthly would make sense...
but could I suggest being slightly more selective on categories - I found the Full-suss category too open - DH monsters & XC - retro & current. A bit like comparing apples and monkeys.

How about Hardtail ; XC-Full-suss ; British ; American; 1999 to 2005 ; current?

ooo yeah tricky one

looks like its agreed on bi monthly, but what about categories?

would it be safe to say that a few bikes are woned between 1998>2011

do the years
after that, not sure yet
colours, but then it starts getting tricky
