Triple chance to win three packs of bar tape, shot blocks and a cool wallet

It's Friday, it's 4pm, so it's names in the hat (the 'hat' being a random number generator because we're too lazy to print the names out) and fingers crossed! Here are the three winners we pulled out and their colours of preference (if they gave one):

Orange: roadiesean
Pink: alisdair_smyth
Red: torre2409

Congratulations to all three winners, commiserations to all of you who missed out. But don't worry - just like tube trains there'll be another one along in a minute. Unless someone throws themselves onto the electrified rail of the internet. or something.

The original Schwag compo post is below...

It's Friday and it's Swag grab time again, this week courtesy of our friends at 2Pure you've a triple chance to win cos we're giving away three colour co-ordinated schwag grab prize packs that will make your riding more comfortable, keep your cash and cards safe in a stylish and minimal way, and keep you properly hydrated too. A priceless combination (but if you insist on putting a price on it it's going to be about £135 divided by three… we're not doing that sort of complex maths this late on a friday afternoon).

AND each schwag grab pack is colour co-ordinated too! We're giving away prize packs in three totally on-trend colourways with each pack containing either pink, red or orange combinations of:

• DSP bar tape for the ultimate in hand comfort on your bike offering “unrivalled cushioning and grip” said our man Shaun Audane when he tested it. On offer we've got pink, orange or red.

• Two packs of Clif Shot Bloks yummy electrolyte chews to keep you hydrated on those hot summer rides we're all going to be having any day now, the pink pack contains cranberry flavour, the red – strawberry, and the orange? We won't insult your intelligence… oh all right then, it's orange.

• Jimi wallet in orange, pink, or red – the compact wallet that will keep your valuables safe when riding, you can attach it to a bag, or pocket and it's waterproof too. Don't run the risk of getting to the end of your ride and finding your credit card dropped out of your pocket and your cash has gone soggy. Enter this week's Friday Schwag Grab.

Usual rules apply, simply comment on this story to be in the prize draw – the decision of the road.cc random number generator is final and no cash equivalent will be given – you can state a colour preference, but we can't guarantee to give it you – especially if everyone wants pink. The three lucky winners will be picked next Friday afternoon.

Good luck!

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Sign me up....

I need some red bar tape for my latest bike build, the shot blocks will give me the endurance to finish wrapping the bars, and the money I saved not having to buy the tape can go in the wallet.....

decisions, decisions. what is a man to do when having to choose between pink red and orange? Mind you, I think pink is the new black, and as my bike is black, just maybe they would go well together. Or maybe I am just sartorially challenged in the bike colour scheme department!

Not fussed about colours but would like to try the shot blocks, as Cliff bars are my energy bar of choice.
