I don't get this either there are a lot of members on this site and I'm sure there are more than 54 following the build off
Anyone can vote and we're not electing world leaders though I admit it is sometimes hard to choose from all the great bikes .
Pick one pick em all but vote .

I think the next mini build off should be a yard art contest..

Does the king rat (Steve) or Luke send members alerts via email that there is a BO competition vote? Maybe all the east coasters are still frozen.:cool:

There is so much going on this site,maybe members get lost.;)
I notice a lot of bikes get built,but a lot don't enter the comp?
I enjoy the comps because they step up your game play.They encourage you to push further.
And I love the way other fellow builders help with advice....
agreed. After my first build off last summer, I don't know if I'll ever build a bike again when it isn't during a build off. They're so much fun to be a part of.

NO, the last thing we want is our favorite hobby to be nagging us to vote... I know it sounds harsh, but think about it, how many of your email alerts do you appreciate? The folks interested will vote and the rest can do their own thing and that's the way it should be... IMO...

Comment for the powers to be...
Not that I don't appreciate the motorized builds, but based on the voting, isn't it time to do a "Motorized Category" for the BO's? JMHO... seems they should be separate from the pedal powered stuff, it's hard enough voting on bicycles to toss powered art into the equation...
Maybe the motor helped people vote for him faster. It does seem to work.

I thought the build-offs are for all bikes pedal powered?
We have enough segregation in life why should we do it with our bike styles.
In this build-off alone,I see klunkers,restorations,roadies,custom scratch frames and so on.Should they be placed in a separate build-off?
I'm sure the mods would be happy with that?

Some random thoughts on voting , no segregation is needed in the style of bikes in an anything goes build off ! I would like the ability to vote for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd , as I see it their is clearly a 1st and last place bike with a lot of ties in the middle ! I followed all the builds and if you took the motor off the top bike it would still be the top bike in my eyes due to its visual appeal and the quality of work that made it that way.
Congrats to all the builders ! Its your participation that makes these build offs so much fun ! :113::rockout:
