Serfas CK-1 Combo Kit Contest Winner

07 Jul

This past Monday we held a contest to give away a Serfas CK-1 Combo Kit 1, a bicycle repair kit that includes a saddlebag, air pump, tire patch kit and multi-tool. While there were several folks I would have liked to have given this kit to, I finally decided on Cat (the cyclist behind the My Life In Gear blog).

Here is Cat’s winning entry: “I’m getting back into cycling after walking away from it in my mid-20′s (I didn’t intentionally walk away, life just got busy). I just purchased my first road bike in March, since then I’ve put 800 miles on it. At the same time I purchased my bike, I purchased a bike for my son so he could ride with me. I have a kit for bike repairs on my bike, which is fine when we ride together, but more and more recently he is riding on his own. I’d love to win this kit for him to have on his bike. As a single mom, trying to get ‘geared up’ in the cycling world, can tax the budget (I don’t operate on credit). This would be a windfall for me, and my son would be absolutely ecstatic over it. Plus, his birthday is coming up on September 1st.”

According to her blog, Cat lives in Oregon with her son Chad. She is 49 years of age and is trying to lose 50 pounds by the time she is 50 years old (you can do it Cat!).

This past Friday afternoon I received a phone call from my best friend, a cyclist in Florida. He has never entered one of the contests, but he does read the comments and I often discuss my choice of winners with him. When he called he asked who was going to be the winner (barring a last-minute entry that might surpass the current entries). I told him that “according2cat” looked like the winner at the moment and he said he agreed, but he also liked the entry from “Chris” who was writing on behalf of his friend Dante—a poor guy whose 11-year old Hyundai broke down and now he has to ride a bike to work. According to Chris, Dante does not have the money to keep his bike in good repair, let alone his Hyundai, but he has lost 27 pounds since he took up cycling to work. I only had one Serfas CK-1 Combo Kit to give away, but I did go to the Man Cave (my garage) and rounded up a decent selection of tools to send to Dante (saddlebag, air pump, multi-tool, tire repair kit, cycling glasses, etc.). The gear I am sending is all used, but still functional. The only reason I am telling you this part of the story is to let you know that I do read every and give serious consideration to every entry. You might not have won this contest, but try again the next time!

    LOL! I have received the Serfas Combo kit and it is amazing. My son is going to love it. The multi-tool is especially nice (I’m going to have to get myself one of those!). Thank you All Seasons Cyclist. And I’m pleased for Dante too. Also, my blog is now self-hosted and you can find me at https://mylifeingear.com Also, just turned 51, I didn’t lose the weight by the time I was 50. I was interrupted by a very early form of breast cancer, so I focused on other priorities last year. I’m on my way to losing that weight now…and learning how to hammer up climbs, which Southern Oregon has plenty of. Thanks again, my son is going to be so thrilled.
