    There is no rule that you have to start your build or build thread on May 1. I didn't start my build last year until July 1st. There was one bike that posted nothing but the completed bike just a few days before the deadline and I think that was the guys first post on the site. Your son should be fine.

    Just for the record, cool bike or not, cool guy or not, I don't appreciate this. I don't just vote on a finished product, I vote on the journey, and in the build off I feel like we're all on this journey together, some of us take the whole time, some take less, but I don't wanna meet anyone waiting at the finish line who doesn't look sweaty and tired like the rest of us.

    Yea, that one got my blood boiling! He posted in the finished bike section, and got 12 votes!

    (Possible memory fade, this may have happened in RRBO5. That means it's becoming a habit!)

    Glad to know I wasn't the only one that feels this way. It's called a build-off, not a bike show.

    The only reason I even want to win is simply for the bragging rights. I could care less about prizes. Just to know I built a cool bike that people will talk about for years to come is enough to motivate me to push the limits of what I can do, pull out all the stops, and build a bike that will turn heads.
