Glad it's not up to me to pick just one!

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

It's a tough one. But I'm not a fan of the fancy front brake rotors. That was my determining factor. I'd kill to have either one in my stable though.

Unfortunately, there was not too much turn out in votes for both semi-finals.
Out of 3483 members, semi-finals 1 was decided by 10 votes, and semi-finals 2 was decided by 12.
And potentially, the same members may have voted in both polls.
I sort of expected more.

Bmiller hands down. he has more in his exhaust than two eleven does in his exhaust and front brake rotors together. Plus those wheels are hardly ever on an RC(his is the first time I have ever seen it)

Two eleven's bike is clean but having such a clean bike then putting Hindle Exhaust on it just turns me off.

The Hindles fell off just as soon as I was able to find an absolutely pristine set of Sato Titanium Lows...

I wasn't asked for an update on the bike so I am not sure how the rules go, but she's all tight and right now!

Merry Christmas, and I am honored to even have my bike considered!!!

Thanks,

211.
