Vox Populi

The Bikeminimalism Awards 2012 ballot opened in early December, when we wanted to learn about what’s cooking in the fixed gear community. Initially we were curious about which brands, products and people were making waves around the world.

When the results started coming in, in unexpected numbers, we realized we had created a monster. As the results are a 100% reflection of public opinion, you could call the awards a true benchmark for anything and everything that’s happening out there. For this reason, the winners should be proud of themselves for doing something right.

This Is How We Did It

The voting itself consisted of two stages: The first stage included initial voting and nomination, where our readers were able to influence which brands, products & people were to be included onto the shortlists. The second stage was compiled of top performers in each category; included were those receiving the Top 10 votes and most nominations from outside the longlist.

In the first stage, there were 3828 voters, giving over 40,000 votes in various categories. In the second stage, nearly 9000 voters voiced their opinion, with a grand total of over 100,000 votes. The votes in both stages were then counted together, giving us the final results.

Truly International

Almost 150,000 votes were given worldwide. The votes came in from the United States, Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Iceland, Ireland, the UK, France, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Israel, Republic of Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Australia and New Zealand. This goes to show that the fixed gear community is truly a global one.

The results will be published early next week.
