Miss Marlowe FTW! I refuse to grovel/bribe and/or create elaborate booths for votes, therefore I won't win, but my bikes are sexy anyway!

That tiny chromag is sweet, I like how when the kid grows you can swap out for 20" wheels and put a RD on.

So who won? I couldn't make it down. Thursdays are a no go for me unfortunately. That 16" is sick and would have got my vote.

Fromme regulars may have seen a fillet brazed Whishart frame on the trails. Rob is kindly making me a frame to my specs which I am stoked about. I've always wanted a fillet brazed frame and getting to design it myself is a pretty big bonus (although I can't blame anyone else if it rides like shit :D ). I'll throw a few photos up as it gets built. It currently looks like this:

The geo is based on a 150mm fork (I may dorp it down slightly), and the STA is a fairly normal (outside of Whistler heh…) 73 degrees. I did think of going slightly steeper, but played safe in the end due to maybe running the fork a bit shorter.

Nice…

ya rob, come over for a visit. trails are fun here, although i really do miss the riding in nelson/cgar/rossland/etc. we might be back for a week in sept or oct.

here is the best this bike is going to look before some old and boring bits go on it. but i'm a sucker for a nice bold coloured frame with all black parts. it'll look good.
