That Hanebrink SE Shocker is a really cool bike. I'm glad it won. This month was made for that bike.

Wow !
Happy to win that special BoTM where I discovered a lot of things in the mtb history with all the exchanges we got. Thanks to GrahamJohnWallace
and thanks for who voted to the Hanebrink.
firstly a thought ti Jeff Archer who was the previous owner of that bike.
Non 26” has ever won BoTM : my 1988 Cannondale SM600 and my 1986 Cannondale SM700, both with 24” rear wheel But a long time ago!

(I forgot : my name “24 Pouces” means “24 inches” in english)

I remembered this shall-wheel, specialist off-road hill climb bike:

MTB Book 1984.jpgThe above scan comes from Rob Van Der Plas' 1984 'The Mountain Bike book which was the first ever book to be published on the subject of mountain-bikes. The scan is taken from the chapter about wheels that also mentions my 1981 Range-Rider.

Be it smaller or larger than 26", the wheel-size-debate has been going on as long as mountain-bikes have existed.
