Alright, so here’s the deal. There have been a lot of nice bikes posted in the “post your ride” section in the last year. We (the “mods”, as opposed to the “rockers”) have decided to have a Readers Choice award to have you, as a fixed.org.au member, to vote for your favourite bike of 2010.
The rules are extremely simple.
1.) Look at all the bikes posted in the post your ride section in the last year. They have to be posted between 01/01/10 and 31/12/10. The bike can also come from the http://www.fixed.org.au/forums/t10781/ section as well.
2.) Choose the bike you like the most out of all those bikes. It can be a track bike, street fixed, commuter, polo bike, conversion, trick bike, whatever, but… it must have a FIXED drive train (no road bikes or SS).
3.) The bike MUST be owned / ridden by a member of fixed.org.au. No other bike porn please.
4.) Post a reply to this thread with a link to the bike you choose. I repeat, post a reply in this thread with a link to the bike you choose.
5.) That’s it, you’ve voted for you’re favourite bike of 2010 on fixed.org.au.
Voting will close (around) midnight 31/12/10. Any replies to this thread after then will not be included.
The bike with the most votes will be deemed the winner of first official Fixed.org.au Readers Choice Award and their bike thread will be stickied at the top of the “post your ride” section for the next year.
Fine print: Any responses to this thread that isn’t voting for a bike will be deleted. You can vote for your own bike if you wish, but do you really want to be that person? Once again, voting closes midnight(ish) 31/12/10, no posts after then will be considered. Any member on fixed.org.au can vote (but making mutiple accounts to vote for one bike will be frowned upon / user will be teased and/or banned).
ive always loved kenevan’s and green machine’s was also a big inspiration for my own build but,
one of the first bike i really really, loved on this forum was JLN’s f(ake) moser, its so awesome even with bull horns and a spoke on the back two things i absolutly despise about the fixed seen i still thought tht bike was amazing and so mean looking but
as jklp said i cant go past flandes merkx(only with the drops on), it does sort of help that out of the three that bike is my size
its fucking awesome and if you ever want to sell it man please pm me first!
While plenty of forum members have shiny bikes made (and restored) by some of the best frame builders in Australia (and elsewhere). My vote has to go to Chris, who decided to have a crack at making his own. Plus he didn’t just make some bland standard geometry track frame, he turned that shit up to 11!
