I like poetry, long walks on the beach, and poking at dead things with a stick.

I must be missing something.
I'd nominate but I'm having trouble finding finished projects, the completed projects thread doesn't seem to capture all of them and I'm sure there are more than I am finding.

Correct!  Many members do not know of the thread or have simply not posted their completed builds there.  You'll have to do some digging in the Projects and other boards.

Korven,

FYI - Flatlanders bike was previously nominated for July 2017 BOTM (http://forums.sohc4.net/index.php/topic,166497.0.html) and May 2018 BOTM (http://forums.sohc4.net/index.php/topic,171686.0.html).  It IS still eligible, if someone wants to second it.

thanks korven and slikwilli for the nomination. the bike has now been nominated 3 times which shows that it's valued by the members and is a great honour. i should be a good sport and accept, especially as rocs' bike will otherwise feel lonely in the race.
however, i've been working on some (subtle) changes that are not yet documented. running the competition with the exact same configuration as last year which now is outdated doesn't seem right. i don't mean any offense, but i'll pass this round.
