Serfas Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump Contest Winner

This past Monday we held contest to give away a Serfas Women’s Bicycle Floor Pump to some lucky reader. The rules for the contest were simple: just pick a number between 1,000 and 1,250 and leave the number in the comment section for the review. The contest ended at midnight on Friday, March 8, 2013.

The winning number was 1,001 and Elizabeth, a New York resident and the blogger behind Triathlon Obsession, hit the number exactly. She did her first triathlon about 8 years ago as a dare, and just this year she picked up a sponsorship and is now a part of the 2013 Trisports.com Team of Champions!

The Winning Number

For your information, we had around 60 readers enter the contest. We used a random number generator to select a number between 1,000 and 1,250 and that is how 1,001 was selected as the winning number. This past Monday I noticed that someone had selected 1,001 and I immediately thought that there was no way on earth they could win since the rules stated that the winner would be the person who selected the number closest to, but not over, the winning number. Since Elizabeth chose 1,001 the only way she could win was if the random number generator chose 1,000 or 1,001—I nearly fell out of chair when 1,001 popped up!

Frame Defender Contest Winner

Ray From Seattle

Ray From Seattle

This past Monday we held contest to give away a Frame Defender Kit (a lightweight bicycle frame protector) to some lucky reader. The rules for the contest were simple: just pick a number between 750 and 1,000 and leave the number in the comment section for the review. The contest ended at midnight on Friday, February 8, 2013.

The winning number was 844 and the person closest to this number, without going over, was Ray, a stay-at-home dad from Seattle (the name on his Gravatar is Papi). Ray started riding his bike as an adult for the first time a year ago. Last year he rode over 2,000 miles—mostly solo. This year he plans to do the same amount of miles, but pulling his 2-year-old in the trailer and his wife riding with him. Ray also runs the Beware The Under Dad blog. The photo on the left is of Ray as he was riding in the Group Health Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic last year.

As in our other contests we used a random number generator to select a number between 750 and 1,000 and that is how 844 was selected as the winning number. We have several other product giveaways already planned—and unless we can think of a better way to hold a contest we will probably follow the same format we used this time.

MiiR Stainless Steel Bottle Contest Winner

Sarah's Doodles

Sarah

Last week we held our second product giveaway of 2013—a contest to give away a MiiR Stainless Steel Water Bottle to some lucky reader. The rules for the contest were simple: just pick a number between 500 and 750 and leave the number in the comment section for the review. The contest ended at midnight on Tuesday, January 29, 2013.

The winning number was 562 and a reader named Sarah guessed the exact number (the first time that’s happened). I’ve only been following Sarah’s blog (Sarah’s Doodles) for about two months—I found it in the WordPress Reader under the “running” topic. Sarah describes herself as “a 24-year-old yo’ pro’ living in Cincinnati with a love for running, 90′s pop music, peanut butter and everything in between.” Sarah does have more than a little sarcasm on her blog (I really admire that in people).

For your information, we had around 70 readers enter the contest. We used a random number generator to select a number between 500 and 750 and that is how 562 was selected as the winning number. We have several other product giveaways already planned—and unless we can think of a better way to hold a contest we will probably follow the same format we used this time (translation: your suggestions for a better way to hold a product giveaway would be greatly appreciated).

Serfas ST-17i Multi-tool Giveaway Winner

Meet Joe, Winner Of The Serfas ST-17i Multi-tool

The winning number was 339 and the person closest to this number was Joe (AKA, Joboo) who guessed 333. Joe is an avid cyclist who lives in the north woods of Minnesota and he is also is the blogger behind The Adventures of Joboo and His Trusty Pugsley. I’ve never had the opportunity to meet Joe but I’ve followed his blog for a several years—he writes a lot about his Surly Pugsley and his blog was one of the reasons I bought my first Fat Bike, a Surly Pugsley Necromancer.

Vi Fuel Product Giveaway Winner

Two weeks ago we launched our first-ever product giveaway. The kind folks at Vi Endurance sent me several boxes of Vi Fuel carbohydrate gel to review and offered another three boxes of their product to the winner of contest I was to run on this site. The rules for the contest were simple: just pick a number between 1 and 200 and leave the number in the comment section for the review. The contest ended at midnight on November 30, 2012.

Ashley, The Vi Fuel Contest Winner

Ashley, The Vi Fuel Contest Winner

The winning number was 103 and the person closest to this number was Ashley (photo above) who guessed 100. Ashley is an avid cyclist who lives in Michigan and she is also a blogger (women.cyclists). I have suggested to Ashley that after she tries out the Vi Fuel she ought to write a product review for it herself—that way folks can get a “second opinion” of this great product. For the record, this is one of the few products I have listed as “highly recommended” and have already placed an order for a few more boxes of Vi Fuel (at retail prices).

random number generatorIn order to insure the integrity of the contest I had nothing to do with picking the winning number. On Wednesday, November 28 Thomas Booth from Booth, Schwager and Associates used a random number generator (from random.org) to select a number between 1 and 200 and that is how 103 was selected as the winning number (see the screenshot on the left hand side of this page).

Special thanks to Michael Hodges of Vi Endurance for making this contest possible.
