I could have used 8 or 9 votes (plus a few for the bikes that didn't finish that I was really diggin'). Great work ladies and gentlemen. It has been a pleasure.
Now that the building is over (minus all the other projects we have on the go) let's GET TA RIDIN'!
I got my vote in. Non-bicycle distractions kept me from following very many of the build threads so I looked real close at the finished bikes as I made the unofficial gallery. I picked out a handful that met my voting criteria. Then I went and read through their complete build threads (What is the deal with all the rabbits!?!?!). I had two of them locked in but my number three didn't have a build thread :x . I had a hard time picking a third but eventually found the one I needed. Evidently I am really feeling bare/polished metal this year.
Congrats to everyone who managed to finish on time, we have a tremendous pool of talented builders here. For those of you who missed the deadline- don't quit now! You will have a cool bike when you get done. Thanks, Steve, for another great build off. I love this place and we all make it what it is.
Alright, voted. Interestingly, I wound up going with the first three I picked as I started reviewing the threads last week. I jumped around a bunch as new bikes were posted up, but ultimately came back to where I started...
Okay , I voted. Dang that was tough.
Voted for three bikes that I would want to own.
Hope voters look at more photos than just the all in one unofficial gallery page. There is so much to miss on the bike if you just go by the one photo. You can't even tell that Paint it Black has that wicked rear fender.
There are sooooo many vote worthy builds !!!!
Well that sucked in more ways than one! There's just waaaayyyy too many awesome works of art to choose just 3 from. But I'm glad I got my voting done early so I don't have to lose sleep over which bikes to pick. If one of my picks wins, I hope my vote is the one that did it for ya! And if I receive a vote, I want to thank you for liking what I've built! I've already got ideas stirring in my head for BO8! :shock:
