    Thanks Steve for getting us out there in inter-web land. I would like to hear from all the 1st time builders about their experience and thoughts about this format. I will put my 2-cents in post-vote. It is important to hear from them in order to hear what encourages people to participate. Good job everyone! :praise:

    I have been building bikes for many years Just joined RRB recently .What got me into this build off was the anything goes does not limit my creativity the other is the thrill of competing against others around the world don't think anything should be changed. I had a great time watching everyones builds while working on my own and the bikes all turned out great love seeing what people in other countrys other than my own think is cool.

    How about making the choices in the poll links to the builds? Would make it easier to see them while voting: CTRL+CLICK

    The poll is a preprogrammed feature of the forum and we don't have any control over how it displays or functions outside of listing the voting choices, how long it runs and how many options you can vote for.

    Would be a nice feature though. :)

    Great job everybody! A deserving overall winner. I really enjoyed the competition as a 1st time participant because for me as a builder with 35 years of experience and an avid cyclist, the open format was perfect to show off my idea of a fast, technical, stripped, Rat Rider. It came up a bit short but that's cool too. Thanks for those who voted for it. This open format really does drive a variety of excellent entries, but it makes it hard to vote between apples and oranges. The vote results seem odd and accurate at the same time. In competitions, votes are important, but to keep people returning and new ones coming, there may have to be some eventual separation into two clear categories that people could choose to enter their creations in. Thinking out loud here.
    Many thanks To Steve the head Rat, Lukester, and all of the participants. What a fantastic bunch of rats. :thumbsup:
    Ride On. Pete-skpc

    Awesome bikes, awesome build-off!

    Here is the top 10 (11 really)

    1: 1910 Indian Board Track by @Funkme
    2: Bhuzzard by @The Renaissance Man
    3:
    THE DECO BOMBER by @Rat Rod
    4: 1936 Elgin Bluebird Crustoration by @Double Nickle
    5: SINISTER URGE by @texasbigjon
    =6: Fully Sprung Elgin by @SILVERKINGPC
    =6: Drag Rat "the Ugly Kid" by @barber
    =8: SUPER-SONIC. by @Big Ape
    =8: Psycho path racer 2 by @bleedingfingers
    =8: Switch-a-roo by @gigmata

    Really though, anyone who finished their bike is a winner, the winter build-off is not easy, with some builders battling sub-freezing temperatures, snow storms and power outages...

    Congrats to all!

    Luke.

    Wow I'm in shock.I really am.
    1. I want to thank Rat Rod(Steve) for a great site.With out it we couldn't have a great community of builders.:banana:
    2. LukeTheJoker(Luke) for setting up the Muscle and Winter build-off's.With out them we would be sitting around the fireplace twiddlin our thumbs,where it warm.:113:
    3.The Renaissance Man (Jim) for showing me the light-path to a more logic build.
    Also for running neck & neck in the voting(at one point,I thought we would both roll in even) and then riding my rear tire all the way to the finish:thumbsup:.RM you left me eating your dust in the summer build-off.:grin: You will have me thinking and designing double time for BoTen.
    4. To other fellow builders for advice and support along the way.
    We are all winners!!!!:rockout:
    5. Thank you to all who voted for the bike.

    I entered this build-off to get this bike finished,and I did just that.I have surprised myself so much,that I still can't stop looking at the bike...I keep asking myself 'Now What'.

    THANK YOU !!!

    Nice job on an awesome build Funkme, I guess I'll be shipping that trophy to Greece. Carl said it would be a pricey ship when I made it, he didn't know how right he was. Shoot me a PM with your info and I'll get this thing headed your way...sometime after payday.

    Some people don't understand the placement system I used, maybe this will help clarify it slightly:

    Here is the top 10 (11 really)

    1: 1910 Indian Board Track by @Funkme
    2: Bhuzzard by @The Renaissance Man
    3:
    THE DECO BOMBER by @Rat Rod
    4: 1936 Elgin Bluebird Crustoration by @Double Nickle
    5: SINISTER URGE by @texasbigjon
    =6and7: Fully Sprung Elgin by @SILVERKINGPC
    =6and7: Drag Rat "the Ugly Kid" by @barber
    =8-11: SUPER-SONIC. by @Big Ape
    =8-11: Psycho path racer 2 by @bleedingfingers
    =8-11: Switch-a-roo by @gigmata
    =8-11: THORN by @Walker

    6 and 7 were a tie, 8 through to 11 were also a tie... ;) I did some research for an earlier build-off where we had ties, and it seems this is the accepted way to do it.

    Somehow we need to develop a way of making flat-pack trophy's... ;)
    Sent you a pm...

    Luke.

    From Greece any thing sent in a envelope padded is cheaper than sending something in a box.It goes on weight mostly,but also shape.
    I know from the usa I have had things shipped in a padded envelope like jeans etc,they work out cheaper than a parcel.Also first class is much cheaper than priority for small things.
    For this years build off I will be making some prizes.Its worth it then to ship.
