This is the comment and discussion thread. Each year we maintain a special thread designated for comments about the bikes and event. If you want to make comments on the BOTY submissions, let's try to keep them in this thread.

 

Feel free to chat it up and post links to what you are oggling, but let's keep the submission and voting threads clutter free. This will be pinned to the top of the BOTY forum.

 

 

Also, just remember... if you are new to the site and can't find your way back to this forum... just click on the BOTY graphic on the right side of your screen, it looks like this:

I urge people that are new to the event to try to avoid getting worked up about the categories and cut off periods for the different classes.  We've been doing this for a long time and a decade's experience running the event has shaped the way things are set up.  

 

Now... that said, precisely because we've been doing it so long, there are things that are a bit dated - the New School Class for instance... when we began, New School only went about 4 years into the past... now, in 2015... we go back 15 years.  It's a bit too broad.

However - evolution in this and all other classes will depend entirely on participation.  If we get enough participation, we will split the classes up into categories with a more narrow focus.  

 

Depending on participation we well gladly split any era be it 70's, 80's, 90's or 00's.  Just put your bike in and let's see what happens.

 

Also note that a category may be withdrawn due to low participation... last year for instance, we did not have enough sidehacks and tandems.  The hobby has changed a lot over the years... time will tell if this is even a relevant end of year event at this point.  Let's see.

definitely post them. the BOTY is really just about showcasing bikes found and built during the year.

It's a cool way to see the whole year all together.

I'm not seeing where I can add photos.  I got my information all written up and then I couldn't find the upload pictures button?  I don't see it here either?  WTH, I've loaded pictures here before.  I don't know why I'm not seeing it?

The only thing I can think of is that you are not choosing the "More Reply Options" button?

ps... I just logged into your account and I see the options are indeed there to upload pics.  If you still can't get it going, maybe there are some browser incompatibilities or glitches?  Seems unlikely but I don't know what else it could be at this point, if you are actually choosing the "More Reply Options" button.
