That is why I was thinking about a time limit, and multiple choice.

How about a photo quiz type thing, a close up detail of be it bikes or something un-bike related and guess what it is ? Quite google proof.

I have used that on other forums, works well indeed.

Certainly will integrate this into the final thing.

OK whatever form it takes Sunday 30th 8pm UK time.

100 questions.

Most will be time limited multiple choice, so guessing based on a hunch.

All questions will have a bike angle.

Prize one crappy old retro part.

Prizes for first, second and third. Quite possible third prize will be three of the winning prize.

:)

So, I have the first batch of 25 questions ready!

PM me and I will send you it.

Just five minutes to PM it back to me, from the time I send it to you, so don't waste time Googling unless you have time left!

Please don't post the answers in the thread!

Mainly easy questions in this first run.

Next week I will up the pace.

:)

25 questions and only 5 mins.

part of the fun is searching for the answer for me.

to be honest I couldn't type and post it back that quickly :lol:

I think you would find the format easy, want me to send you the questions?

Well actually quite good fun and the format should make it quick.

Just make sure you're both online so you know the PM will be picked up and just keep refreshing your PM waiting. Otherwise 5mins might be a problem.

Next time could you pick something I might know about and don't have to guess at :xmas-cool:

I'll take a PM but I reckon a monumentally low score could ensue as I'm having a small glass or two of Shiraz right now!
