Decided B.O.T.M. is to be run monthly once again. This months initial nominations are....

retrobikeguy's Pace RC100

Jezza's Fat Ti

Image


Elev12K's Yo

Image



retrobikeguy's Kestrel KMZ

Image


Sylvain's ibis ti

Image


Repack Rider's 1983 Ritchey Everest

Image


www.sk1design.com's S-Bike

It looks like Jezza's position of uber-bikepimp is being challenged by Retrobikeguy.

Anymore nomination post them on the thread and I'll add them to the poll.

Hoping for a couple of late entries from Repack Rider and Gaf16.

Prize is as yet undecided.

A worthy entrant Sylvain, duly added. What year is it? Looks like a real clean build.

Not sure - according to http://www.firstflightbikes.com/ibis_specs.htm it is either a '93 or '94. Frame number is 4285, has a 1-1/8th headtube and a handjob. I'll post the full spec. Oh and it's rideable - did a cyclocross race on it the other week!

Yeah but with their very poor q-factor they make you pedal like a duck … require a 121mm bb for the granny to clear the chainstays. Might have a go with a shorter bb and without the granny, though as its bolts are what attach the spider to the cranks, it might not be possible.

All entries are great. Already gave my vote to 2 of them in an earlier BOTM contest. Actually I should vote for another now.

Still deciding....

BTW think Scant's FRO was the legitemate winner of last month's. That bike was the only one on which the 1/4 Flexstem could be fitted, right?? Show us some pics when done :lol:

Scant is very protective over his bikes. Don't think we'll be seeing pictures of any more, even when he gets the flexstem fitted to the FRO.

sorry I'm protective... they're my babies :oops: :roll: :wink:

after careful consideration & given my love of FAT... I'll be voting for the kestrel. :wink: high points for so much effort in both respray, totally infitting period bike build & the hassle of getting all of those NOS parts :D

plus I always wanted 1 as a kid..
