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?
