Kind of a cool story here...........Duane from Chester Cycles (the painter) in Chicago is having a drawing for 10 free repaints of varying themes. He only received 113 entries making ones chances of winning fairly good. He closed entries around 6 pm this evening and is randomly picking 10 names/frames in the morning.
Here's a link to the whole 9 yards on Chainlink http://www.thechainlink.org/forum/topics/free-bicycle-repaint-with-a-catch?x=1&id=2211490%3ATopic%3A631953&page=1#comments

That's truly a situation where everybody wins.

Dang, I really wish I would have seen this a few days ago. I have a frame primered and ready to go.
Oh well :(
Yup, that was my reaction as well: " what, now you tell me?". :lol:
But seriously, that is a cool thing to do. I would have been happy to add another entry, but... Eh, whatever!
Rockhound, I like your new signature!

was this open nationwide or just for locals?
I'd get "The Hailey" :thumb:

I don't think there were any limits to locale but he only advertised on his FB page and a few days ago he announced it on Chicago's Chainlink site.
He announced the winners this morning and actually picked 11 winners. Unfortunately I was not one of them. I'd have chosen "The Brady" for my Fuji Touring Series IV.
I think it's a cool gesture and possibly a clever marketing idea for Duane.

Epic post fail.

True..........perhaps it's bad karma for not telling the rest of the cycling world they had less than 24 hrs to get their enty in, but I am seriously considering taking Duane a frame anyway.
