Blag yourself a posh waterproof for nowt!

We've just had a couple of FX bikes in to test from Trek, and the lovely Jez who dropped them off (in exchange for Tiffin and coffee) also came up with a top bit of schwag for us to give away: a Howies Slate River waterproof jacket worth £130! And all you have to do is post to be in the hat.

Not only a posh jacket but a famous one: it's been featured on the Howies Blog, modelled by the big man himself. No choice of sizes I'm afraid, we've only got one and it's a large. It's in royal blue with Bontrager and Gary Fisher embroidered logos on the front and sleeve – it did come from Trek, after all...

Same rules as ever: just post a comment on this story saying you want it and you're in the draw. We'll pull a name from a receptacle next Friday, round about 3pm. The judges' decision etc. No cash prize will be yadda yadda.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.
