    This doesn't sound like everybody gets a prize day Rolly. No retro roadies with shakes? No CX bikes, no antique/vintage rides, best patina, coolest kids balance bike, raddest BMX, 650C titanium roadies, best fillet brazed, best lugged, best tigged, best bonded, best HP die cast..., most PRO, most Pengy!

    but there will be prizes for plenty of things not listed above, we don't want 40 categories.

    and i'll need to go back and bold the bit that says 'spot prizes', as you must've missed it...?

    one thing i forgot to mention, and that blakey has inadvertently reminded me of, is that if there is enough interest in a CX/MTB/BMX category, by all means let me know, i'm happy to add categories should there be sufficient interest.

    any questions about all of it, put them here, i'll answer as quickly as i can.

    really looking forward to this though folks. with andy's FYXO event running the same weekend in Sth Melb, we'll be hoping for a really good turnout for those that are involved with the FYXO event, as well as any people here from interstate that don't have plans for the saturday night.

    bikes/swag/tunes = rad times

    So what's the process for entering a bike? Or do we just rock up on the day?

    My vote for 'scratched up and rusty track bike with some shiny bits that hasn't seen the track in a couple of decades'.

    there'll be a pre-registration form online soon hopefully (nickj is going to do this from the states), and that will be the preferred method so we can get an idea of numbers and setup/layout, but there will be entries permitted on the day at this stage.

    i'd be putting a bike like yours in the fixie/commuter/workhorse

    new category: bikes that blakey thinks are worthy of awards.

    we should call the awards "the blakeys". clever!

    "...and the gold blakey goes to...."
