***BMX FACTOR - 2017 - ENTRANTS***
« on: December 24, 2017, 09:02 AM »
So, back after a few years absence, we are having a competition to find which BMX had the biggest X Factor for 2017.

What to do: You need to think long and hard about the best bike you've seen. It could be a bike built years ago, it could be something you saw at MK17, it could be one of your bikes, it doesn't matter.

Search through the previous BOTM entries, the Museum and Me & My Bikes sections on here, anywhere really that has pics of bikes.

IMPORTANT BIT: Each person gets only ONE choice to nominate one bike. It MUST have a picture and a description of the make, model and year of production. If you can add the name of the owner then this would be great too as I'd like to ensure that they get the recognition.

It's really as simple as that.

If anyone wants to play but can't upload pics, then PM me and I'll upload on your behalf.

I'll leave this thread open for one week to add entries, then a Mod will lock it and I'll set a voting poll up. Half the bikes with the most votes will go through to the next round.

THE MOST IMPORTANT BIT: THIS IS JUST FOR A BIT OF FUN.

5 bikes is a good start and the freestyler flag is certainly waving currently.

Easy for me this one-  Gra_Goose's 83 survivor Pro Class. Awesome bike and all I wanted as a lad (well, only until I saw my first minge and then I forgot all about BMX of course!)

Annoying fat Ed since 2011......

There have been a number of bikes that stand out to me, but one that always springs to mind is Souther Andys Zeronine XL. I remember seeing it displayed at MK with the matching race kit, and for me it was head and shoulders above everything else at the event. It has been etched into my brain ever since.

OMG this is going to be difficult!! So can I just clarify (to help my brain get into gear) that it must be a bike that we've seen for the first time this year?
