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.

    I think the random generator is a fair one. It’s easiest for people to join.

    If you want to make it more challenging, you could pose a challenge. The funniest joke related to cycling or the product, perhaps? =)

      I have thought about doing a contest like that — maybe asking for the funniest thing that ever happened to you on a bike — but I wasn’t sure how to judge the results. I have a truly warped sense of humor (my wife says it’s more like that of a little kid who has overdosed on sugar).

        Yes, that is true. It is much more subjective.

        Okay, well. You can sit down ready to read them all. Have someone watch you. You will nod at this person before you read each comment.They will take notes on how much you smile and/or laugh out loud, like using a scale from 0-10.

        …yea random generator makes much more sense.
