    I just won...

    a steel commuter bike from Nashbar. I was winner number 20 of their 20 days of giveaways. I am excited, never won anything before. I think I may use it as my winter bike as it already has fenders.

    Very good for you! Congratulations!

    The bike looks like it would be very well suited for commuting!

    I've never won anything either . . . maybe there is still hope! I don't order from Nashbar though, so maybe not . . .

    i liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiike it!

    and boohoo, i never win anything. i s'pose it does help to enter!

    congrats!

    i do wish the spec list was more informative. weight isn't always the most important thing, but nice to have the info. i had a steel sears english racer back ought when, and i don't think it weighed as much as my Al framed 29 pounder. the er was one thin bike.

    Nice. You're the second, maybe third, BF member I've seen win a bike.

    No. It's Luke V's thread of glory! I had mine.

    (However, my win is on the "Eye candy--show us your blue bike" thread.)

    That looks a lot like my first bike I got when I was 11 (in 1962) - a 3 speed Raleigh. The configuration looks about the same. I loved that bike! It got me all over the place until it was stolen by some scoundrel when I left it unlocked behind the furnace room at my old junior high. I was such an idiot! I was too lazy to lock it that day, and after school I forgot I had ridden it and walked home. When I remembered and checked the next day it was gone.
