I still dont like seeing recent years stock models making an appearance. Nor for that matter current years models that can be put together with the help of 25 minutes online at crc and a bit of room on a credit card. I find it hard to have appreciation for such easy builds. There were several in this months running that left me cold on this front. I think mainly because I still see the 1998 section as being about more recent retro than about latest and greatest.

+1 from me
I have a couple of 1999/2000 frames which I regard as almost retro which are excluded from "pre 98 retro".
When was the bike that won the post '98 BOTM built?

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


didn't want to get to specific and only get 1 or 2 entries....


I don't see those cats as too specific - Made in Colcester might be too specific - Made in Halifax would work though :)

I see the pre98 this month is Born in the USA.

yeah most certainly
we will have to choose some common ground/general topics

but then its hard to put on a defining point

like single speed can be a fair few bikes so quite a diverse selection
depends how diverse we want it
