So, i was just on the puma web site and noticed they have a contest going. whoever owns the coolest bike wins another cool bike. ****ing lame. how about a contest that gives broke people like me a shot at a decent ride.

I think the saying about the rich getting richer possibly applies here..??

i definitely agree...how about giving away a new bike to the person with the crappiest bike so they can have a decent one? i've got a couple decent bikes, but i have one that would win that contest hands down.

I think it'd be too hard to judge just crappiest bike. Maybe crappiest functioning bike and what you need it for would be the best judge. Personally I think they should just have a random contest instead of this "coolest bike" ****.

The impression I got was different from how all y'all seem to be taking it. The fixed gear 101 booklet they put out with Vice is pretty much a guide for building your first conversion. At the end it says "show us what you've done and we'll pick the one we like best." I'd be surprised if they give it to someone with a bling track frame kitted out with D/A, record, custom non-machined deep v's or whatever. I took as something aimed more at giving props to someone who builds a really nice or interesting conversion for him or herself rather than someone who dropped huge money. I could be totally wrong though.
yea and while were on the topic of puma...i still havent gotten my dvd. not that im really complaining about not getting something thats free.

ahhh, sorry, forgot about "search". whatever, anyone have a sick ass bike they wanna give ME a chance at winning? look at my bike, i love it but it's not gonna win the county fair pie baking contest.
Here we go again.
Just wait until those tires I bought from Marcus on Sat follow me back to Minneapolis through the mail. I'm gonna get my photographer-designer freind to take some UBER pron shots of my bike and you'll all lose!
