Those were all awesome builds. The quality of the bikes hasn't gone down a bit, it just keeps getting better. Thumbsup to all the builders.
Puti, maybe your bike wasnt on the vote list because it wasnt posted in the finished bikes thread.
20 or less got my vote, though I can honestly tell you guys that I thought RRBO2 had some wicked bikes, but this RRKBO provided some awesome bikes,and nomatter what happens everybodys a winner, because everybody made an awesome bike.

Theres an old saying: That which doesn't kill you.....you usually get it on the second try.
Poop, for some reason, I thought the deadline was the 15th. I was hoping for a last minute reminder e-mail like the other build off.
I've been finished for about a week now, but planned on taking my final pictures tonight. Oh well, my bike is rather mediocre anyway. I will go ahead and post my final picks in my thread. ....there goes my chance at fame and furtune.
I guess that was an oversight on my part...not sending out an email reminder.
I honestly almost forgot myself. Like I say...we weren't really supposed to vote, but since a trophy was made I was just humoring folks.
I plan to create a kids bike build off gallery and show all of the finished bikes.
Lots of great stuff! I couldn't decide what criteria to make my decision with. Rachel's bike is flawless while some have tons of fab work and engineering. Should I try and look at it from a 10 year olds perspective? In the end I voted for 20 or less simply because its the bike I would most like to own. It didn't hurt that the craftsmanship was so well executed. Thanks to all for the inspiration.
It can be fast, safe or cheap. Pick two.
Seeing that some confusion exists on how the entries were included, would it be a PITA to just extend the entry deadline for another week or so?
Wouldn't all the bikes that had build records be included whether or not they were completed? Or did the builders have to somehow reaffirm their submissions?
Worst case, we SHOULD pick ONE winner. This isn't pee wee baseball where there's no losers.
Just my 2 pennys.

congrats to all that entered this build off
The “bicycle” is a mechanical work of art.......unknown
“Sha-sha-sshhaa"............ Rusty Shackleford
"Expect the worst" and "Hope for the best"
I have to say congratulations to all of the builders - no matter who ends up with what votes.
As Steve mentioned, this originally started out as a fun build with no prizes and no voting. So just a chance to build a bike for the sake of building one and watch others as they went through their builds. No holds barred. No limitations other than wheel size. No major competition. Just a fun build. So based on that, we all won - just by participating.
The voting is just extra - and a way to let those who came up with an exceptional bike know that lots of others liked it. And the fact that you see lots of comments saying how hard it was to actually pick a "best" bike proves again that they were all great bikes.
It's amazing to scroll down through the pictures of the finished bikes and see that many nice bikes - and that many different styles, colors, etc.
Burrito bikes, kids trikes, larger trikes, cruiser style bikes, Stingray style bikes, homebuilt frames, modified frames, etc. Just an amazing bunch of work and ideas overall.
So again, congratulations to all of the participants of this build off - even those who did not complete their bikes on time but at least joined in on the fun.
I know I missed the deadline, but it's no big deal. Here is how my bike turned out. I just hope my nephew likes it. His b-day is Sat.
Steve, thanks for adding my old pic to your finished bikes post.
Here is a link to my finished thread with all the pics
and an overall pic
There are some awesome bikes in this build. My son's had a blast watching the build culminate to where it is now. By viewing the other entries we've discovered he has a taste for the flat trackers and straight bar style frames, so guess what were building soon. You've all help plant a seed here and as his riding pics show (he was singing in those photos) he's happy with that bike. Thanks to all who participated for the positive experience.
Dumpster divin' since 2nd grade.
