THE OFFICIAL BMXMUSEUM CALENDAR BUILD OFF IS BACK FOR 2020!!!!

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/138491/museum-banner5d4eb894e2.jpg


Here are the Rules:
***********************************************************************
•    Each member of the Museum can submit up to 4 (1 for each class) bikes into the Build Off.  As long as you are a BMXmuseum member before August 10, 2019 you can participate.


•    The entry threads will close on August 31st, 2019 at 9:00 PM (PST) Completed Builds can be submitted any time after October 5th, 2019 when the completed thread opens. The deadline to submit a complete will be October 19th, 2019. That is a 14 day window to submit your bikes. We will do our best to get the voting threads will open as soon as possible after the entry threads are closed starting around October 19th, 2019.  Once they are opened, there will be a 14 day window to vote.  Since this date may shift depending upon how quickly we get the voting threads live, I will adjust the dates accordingly.

*** UPDATE ***  Voting threads opened on 10/22 and will remain open until 9:30AM ET on 11/5.

•    Final Picts, THIS IS NEW THIS TIME SO PAY ATTENTION.  Due to the new voting format, you will be REQUIRED to enter your bike under your bikes on the museum.  Use the very best pictures you can take as they will be used in the annual calendar if you finish in the top 3 in your class.  Once you have entered your bike, you need to post a link to the entry in the Final Submission thread once it's live.  You are welcome to post your bike as soon as the build off starts once you have it completed, but you will still need to link to it in the Final Submission thread to complete the process.  The hope here is it saves a ton of work from the staff adding bikes and also allows members to do it the way they want.  It will also give everyone the same options for how many pics can be added, specs, etc.  I think this will be a big win for everyone and also ensures the bike is displayed proudly for the whole world to see.


•    All bikes must be BMX or FREESTYLE. Restored, Polished, Spray bombed, Re-Chromed, NOS, Survivor, whatever you want to enter is fine.


•    For the Build-Off classes, the bikes MUST be built within the time frame given. No previously submitted bikes to the Museum or in other build-offs are allowed.  If you are entering the ANY BMX class, a previously submitted bike is ALLOWED and ENCOURAGED but please take FRESH pics to the best of your ability to show off the current state of your pride and joy!


•    All members of the BMXMuseum will be able to vote as long as you registered BEFORE October 21st, 2019! You CAN vote for your own bike. You will vote for your favorite bike in each class, (4 choices total) in the voting thread. Most votes gets first place, second most gets second place, Etc. If there are any ties GAry will be the tie breaking vote.


•    Most of all lets have fun building some cool bikes!!!!!!!!! 
Here are the links to the different classes. Please enter your bike in the correct place. Survivors/OG & Restored bikes will compete with each other in their respective class.

Freestyle–20" all years— https://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=802806
Race–20" all years— https://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=802807
Open–16" Pits/24”/26”/29” cruisers/Any Customs/BMX Scooters!— https://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=802808
ANY BMX Bike Never in a Build Off!— https://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=802805


Explanation of the Open class—Custom means welding would have to be involved such as a 20" cut down to a 16" pit or added to making a 24". Just as shown with the terminology for Race/Freestyle, ANY 20" all years.  Scooters are finally allowed if anyone has one, but let me be VERY clear here that it's BMX style scooters.  That is GT Zoot Scoots, CW Nopeds, Mongoose Miniscoots, that type of thing.  No Razor scooters will be allowed or anything else that doesn't have BMX heritage if you catch my drift.  If there are any questions on this, feel free to send a PM.

Explanation of the Any Completed Bike class—We are looking for very nice, quality pictures!! Please do NOT submit fuzzy/shaky, blurry photos, etc.  The better the photo, the higher the chances of getting votes will be.  This isn't a contest of who built the best bike and leaned it against a lawn chair in their back yard and took a picture with their flip phone.  Any bike that has already been built/survivor/etc. submitted in the museum. Any year, Race, Freestyle, any size. Basically any bike that is allowed on the museum is good to go as long as it has never been entered into a prior build off.  If it is already in the museum, please update with the new pictures!

Use this thread for all progress, banter, etc.!!

FAQ

There's been some confusion on the new "ANY BMX Bike Never in a Build Off" class which is expected since this is only the second time it's been done.  Here are some of the questions I've had in PM previously and the answers provided.

Q:  Can I submit a bike that's already in the museum?
A:  YES you can with the following requirements (1) Take FRESH pictures and update your bike in the museum with those. (2) Post these new pictures in the submission thread when they are posted. (3) Do NOT post a bike that has already been in a build off.  This is hard to police but be honest please but I'm also hoping everyone will report ones they've seen in build offs before just to keep it fair.

Q:  Does my bike need to look different than the original submission if it is already in the museum?
A:  NO, although see the prior question/answer.  The pictures needs to be FRESH and CLEAN and also please update your posted bike with these when taken.

Q:  If my bike is almost completed already, does it need to go in the "All Bikes" class?
A:  NO, if your bike is still in the build phase, you can and should enter it into one of the 3 build classes (RACE/OPEN/FREESTYLE).

The key to this year's build offs is to be as inclusive as possible.  About the only things you CANNOT enter are non-BMX bikes or something that's already been in a build off.  If you can't decide what class to enter into, feel free to PM me and we can figure it out. cool

Also remember, 1 bike per class per member.  If you already entered a bike in RACE for example, it cannot also be entered in the "All Bikes" class as well.  You also cannot enter more than one bike in the same class.

Re: THE OFFICIAL BMXMUSEUM CALENDAR BUILD OFF IS BACK FOR 2020!!!!

Yeah!!
Looking forward to the new calendar...
may I suggest keeping one/more pics high resolution!
The bigger/better the pics, the better the calendar will be..
So keep a 300 dpi version if you have them, please!!!
The site automatically shrinks images..so if/when you win. I will request HUGE version for printing..

Goo luck to everyone!!
