Now taking nominations for the May 2013 Bike of The Month contest. This will be a Kona vs GT vs Specialized Special Month, so lets all rejoice.

Please see slightly updated rules here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/wiki/BoTM_Rules , especially note the first. Useful if you can structure your nomination as follows
:arrow: username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Fire Mountain
:arrow: Image(s)
:arrow: Finally please include a link to your machine in the relevant Reader's Bikes section. If you don't have an existing post now is the time to add one with as much detail as you like!

It was a five way decision between the listed, Marin and Trek. We went with these three. Sure you can throw in your Bolinais Ridge another time ;)

Oof. 5 would have been a big spread. Then again, once Trek is in you need to include Giant, and once Giant is in then everyone thinks Special Month means "special" month and starts talking about Iguanas...then Rockadiles. As for a Bolinarious Redge, I've been looking for years, but I've never yet found the right one.....

Yeah, five would've been too many. Three is a good number. Good luck with the Bolinais search.

Balls.....

A matter of weeks after I sell my only eligible bike :cry:
Roadside rescue, Retrobike karma and a budget build would have tugged at the heartstings of the voters :wink:
