The Renaissance Man squared me away with the answer. According to Luke's post I still have 28 hours and 5 minutes.So, do we have to be finished by midnight on the 31st or by midnight on the 1st?
I was actually thinking that it was going to end tonight until I looked into it. That's good news for me also. I might be able to crank the engine on mine and get a ride video tomorrow in time for the deadline!The Renaissance Man squared me away with the answer. According to Luke's post I still have 28 hours and 5 minutes.
Entries close at midnight on the 1st of April. (UTC-6h Central America time, same as used for the main build-off's.
Yeah, I don't know... I've seen build offs with more categories and rules and the smaller groups tend to get ignored. I think the reason the WBO has been gaining popularity is because we're all in it together. Do I think SGT.ROCK would place better with a motor on it as originally planned? Yes, but not because of the motor itself, but because it would've enhanced the WWII motorbike look I was after. IMO, the Indian is leading the pack not because of the motor but because it is the baddest bike out there. If I could have my pick of any of them to have, it would be the Indian.Great variety of bikes in the WBO! Almost every style represented, and a very impressive group of pedalers and non-pedalers. This voting outcome forced me to ask why the wipeout by the gas buggies in the voting with so many nice bicycles? The no rules competition seems to push to the back-seat and discourage functional, pedaling rat bicycles.
I have only one suggestion moving forward to encourage more people to participate in comps.
1.) BO's should be split between motorized and non-motorized., and perhaps modified and non-modified. Too many great riding, beautiful and functional rat-bikes are left behind in the voting process because the flash-bang of chopped or motorized ones which seem to get the most attention. Just the my take on it. Again, I really enjoyed all the bikes that were entered and the opportunity to participate. Great job by everyone, especially those with clear and detailed build threads. And lastly, Congrats to the eventual winner!! SKPC
I hear ya, I used to want divisions too. I used to torture myself trying to figure out why my bikes didn't score better. I started in the Muscle Bike bo2 in 2013, the 2014 WBO, BONINE, MBBO3, and now the 2015 WBO. My bikes are getting better, and I really think the secret is good photography, and mine are shot with a notso smart phone. I do care where I place but I'm not going crazy...hehe. I've thought of the WBO as a little big build off, but it's all moot anyway, next year it's gonna be a clunk off....GC. Voting is subjective, but is seems important to people, that's why I mentioned it here. If you separated the WBO15 vote into catagories, the results would be accurate. But in an open format, you will never get "fairness". It's for pushing the limits of experienced builders I think, but may also drive people away from the BO's. Just my take on it. Perfect for me, not so for the masses..
