A while back…about 2 weeks ago, Moe and I were talking about building a new site that would allow our readers a chance to show off their bikes! Well, in all honesty, between Moe and I, we probably have over 30 bicycles in our possession…and we wanted to show them off… not in a “neener neener neener” way, but in a fun way. Most of our bikes have gone through some sort of customization where they are so far from stock. We knew that we weren’t the only ones that have this type of passion for bikes. I know for a fact that our readers LOVE bikes as much or maybe more than Moe and I do and probably have done some pretty amazing custom jobs on their rigs…. Tim S….I’m talking to you!
So without further adieu, I present to you…www.RateMyBicycle.com!
Now hold on — before you start thinking that this is just for commuters or mountain bikers…NO! All bicycle types are welcome to be posted. Here’s the the best part. YOU the READER can create an account on RateMyBicycle.com and post photos of your own bikes! Simply sign up, upload your photo to your Flickr or Photobucket account, use the URL they provide you and post away!
The site pretty simple to use (simple instructions are included on the homepage) and we’ve made it into a blog format so you can see the newest postings of bikes all the time. You can also click on the specific category you want to see and only those bikes will show up.
Once we get things moving on the site, we’ll be hosting monthly contests to see which bike gets the most votes. Yes, you can vote for yourself, but there’s only one IP address per vote so it may not let you do it more than once.
Go on…have fun!
