Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Kogswell frame promo for Big Fix

Hey y'all, Dennis at Fixed Gear gallery has cooked up The Next Big Thing---a chance to own a Kogswell model G frame--pick either 54 or 58cm, or both!
A $15 donation gives you a 1/40 chance of scoring the frame.
Go to www.fixedgeargallery.com
Sorry, some kind soul bump this with a true link?
All proceeds go to the Big Fix, thanks to matthew at Kog, and Dennis, of course.
Another shiftless bum,
mOjO

Sweet - I'm in the running. Any word on how many people have signed up for this round? I'm kind of thinking of making my odds 1/20...

Little confused here... 40 entries for each frame, or 20 each, or simply the first 40 entries, regardless of how they're split up?

every donation is a 1/40 shot---best odds of any promotion I/we have done.
Keep bumping/donating.
My daughter dakota thanks you

2 separate schemes:
1/40 chance with a $15 donation for size of your choice. you may enter for both frames, but this is still a 1/40 chance to win a specific one, 1/20 chance to win either one?
Got it, statisticians, correct me, if need be.

I'm hoping to get that 58cm frame. Even if I don't win its still money to a good cause.

Does anyone know when the results will be released?

Bummer - just went to make a second bid for the 58 and missed out. Stupid work meetings - should have put in 2 or 3 when I had the chance.

Oh, and short people - the 54 is closed, too...
