Probably take that long.

But if it puts a smile on your face, and gives you happy memories, then you have to say, that's largely what retrobike is for.

1. Is that really likely to happen?

2. Threads like this (analogous to BOTM votes, I suppose) prosper, or dwindle, largely as a result of popularity and controversy. With less of the churlishness, they would likely get about the level of attention they deserve.

I don't know- no-one knows do they or if they do, give me the lottery numbers whilst your at it.

Has it been churlish? Didn't think it had but thats the trouble with the written word it can be easy to read to much/little into a post.

Anyway slap some M900 on the heap and chuck it in to BoTM lad.

theres room for this on retrobike
also maybe a first bike bso (or whatever) BOTM ,should be run .
i realise the bike snobs would pour scorn on this ,but the reality is a good percentage of us bought these things to start with (raliegh maurauder for me ) it dont matter that they were a bit limited as proper off road bicycles
they got a lot of us into the nonsence that continues ,and as such have a place in MTB history

i will buy an activator and build it with quality parts ,just to see , thats a promise

Um, there's quite a difference between probability and certainty.

Not all of it - but there certainly has been a degree of it and acidity.

That in itself, probably creates more attention and debate - and perhaps fear from some - than the subject perhaps truly warrants. The fear that it might take over or become a much more frequent topic, does truly seem to worry some, but yet they seem quite short-sighted in not realising that their reflexive posturing gives the concept more wings than if they left it alone and focused on topics and bikes that do float their gondola.

Had this been a cool wall thread then there's nothing in here thats out there.
Given that it's someones thread about their own bike, some of it could easily be seen as offensive even.
