    The Orange P7 is lovely however that intense plastic bike looks like my dog when it gets constipated, hunched up wi an arched back trying desperately to drop off a malteser, or even a chocolate peanut, i don’t care how good it rides but when it looks like that i’d throw a blanket over it.

    It’s like a beauty contest in the burns unit so far

    It shouldn’t be just about looks. This contest is demeaning to bicycles!…
    1st one…

    This is my own bike

    Impossible to vote as none of them are road bikes.

    Welcome to UglyStick Sunday, where bike mingers hang out.

    Number one, if it were 12am and I had no other bike to ride, after quite a few Diamond Whites.

    It’s like the lights have suddenly come on, and you’ve realised that the fit bird you thought you were dancing with is actually David Dickinson

    That Roberts Dogs Bolx is the bomb.Love the original blk and white paint finish though.Wonder if he could make me a 29er version? Hmmm,lovely!

    Production Privee is the only one with stance, so gets my vote. Not keen on the colour or build though..

    Winner chooses next bike type.

    The best image chooses the next type of bike? Once a .jpeg file becomes self-aware, Judgement Day is only round the corner.

    This is not the way to run the comp. You need an “eliminator” thread first where everyone posts pics and votes. After 200 posts/week, those bikes that have been voted on go though to the 2nd round thread. The top 3/5 of that thread go to a finals thread,

    I refute the premise of your competition.

    I like sumafunks first picture best.
    The first one is nice but I think it should have a slightly longer stem, and photoshop out the dropper seatpost cable.

    Fixed, here’s a fine example of everything a bike should look like.

    current score in the prettiest HARDTAIL comp:
    we have 5 hardtails and 6 non hardtails.

    I’d go with Somafunk’s – it looks like the kind of bike I’d have – the kind of bike you’d want to just pop out to the shed for a little look at to make sure it was ok (not with the rigid forks though).

    Welcome to UglyStick Sunday, where bike mingers hang out.

    I am amazed by some peoples conception of beauty. 1 is the best of a VERY bad bunch.

    what is a hardtail then?
    rigid back end, suspension up front?

    apart form the naked loon with the big fox forks you mean?

    to be fair, hardtail to me still means a fully rigid bike as that’s what proper mountain bikes are. none of the this new fangled minceyboingy frontage for the weak and limp wristed IT brigade. 😆

    So what you meant to say is that a fully rigid bike is a proper mountain bike to you? That’s okay. I fail to see how that makes a rigid bike a hardtail though.

    Well, seeing as everyone is ignoring the rules – here are mine . . .

    Definition: A hardtail mountain bike is simply a mountain bike without rear suspension.

    so erm…..up ya muddy gully with a big knobbly nate!!

    Why would you call it a hard “tail” if it’s all “hard”? The fact that you mention the “tail” implies that the front is “soft”. You wouldn’t call a full suspension bike a softnose, would you?

    harks back to days of early ATB’s where you had rear suspension like this
