As Small Business Saturday approaches every year, we're always reminded of the incredible work that our frame builder friends continue to do year in and year out. Last year, our office held an internal voting competition to determine our favorite build of the year. We had a lot of fun with it and even ended up getting a canvas print of the winning build for the wall in one of the conference rooms of the office.

For 2018, we thought it'd be fun to roll the voting aspect out to our followers by running a bracket-style competition on our Facebook page. So for the next week, we'll post two of the chose builds (see below) to a poll on Facebook and leave it open for voting for 24 hours. At the end of the 24 hours, the builder with the most votes will move on to round number two and we'll also subsequently post two more builds for voting. The builder of the winning bike will receive an Impero Ultimate Frame pump and two SICRUO Ti Bottle Cages. We'll also get a canvas print made of the winning bike and add it to the collection in our conference room.

The competition will begin on Sunday November 25th at 11am EST. For each day, you'll have until 11am EST the following day to submit your vote for that match-up before voting for the next two builds begins.

You can preview the bikes chosen for this competition below. While you're looking, why not grab a shirt, hat or something from one of these guys to show your support? You can do so by clicking through to a builder's website next to the bike . It is Small Business Saturday after all!

Richard Sachs is the obvious choice for its style and comfort. I recommend any of the others because I don’t want his waiting list to grow with the publicity.

Why is Demon the only one with stones to be daring in their design? Other builders take note.

Where is the DeSalvo? The best looking frame there is the Sachs, forks should have a bend to enable proper flex and shock absorption.

I like the Richard Sachs Frame because he used old school steel lugs and frame tubes by brazing them together and fork which gives it style and character and way cooler than any of the others. Where as the carbon forks on some of the other bikes are mass produce in a factory somewhere else and picked off a shelf and installed on their frames.

I like the Moots, but all of these are nice bikes. In fact, I’d take any of them home!
