Two standout machines for me - tricky to choose: and when was a frame a bicycle ?

Rk.


Frames and projects are included as it is the winners from all months of 2018 and that includes the theme months as well.
:) But I am sure if one thing isn't to somebodies taste that there should be something that is ;)

Ah...if only I'd known, could have entered my Pro Super (1986 SBDU) or one of the other projects I have on the go ! Rather late now, will await a suitable theme month in 2019.

Left field British framebuilders rarely seen on RB perhaps ?

Yes, Maca was one of the first winners this year in February RBotM whose theme was winter projects. A successful theme for sure so one that may happen again ;)

Blimey Andy / Mac / Peachy have been busy boys in 2018

Shoddy work from THM having only won once all year !


I was having the year off last year as well... Perhaps this year.

Huge Congratulations to Toby1974 and his glorious Pegoretti!
I am sure all will join me in congratulating him for the win of RBotYear, a worthy win in such illustrious company.

Thank you also to all the others in the competition and also to all who entered throughout 2018 as without your support there wouldn't be a competition.
A thank you must also go out to all who vote, look at and get involved in the monthly banter that surrounds not just the comp but the whole of the road section as people obviously feel it's a great place to show off builds and projects etc that they are involved in, but in a non formal sort of manner that is sometimes a bit more relaxed than some other sites.
So again, thanks to all for your continued involvement and congratulations once again to Toby for a fine win.

Jamie
