Halo Schwag Grab: winners announced! (finally)

Win some colourful rubber for you and your bike!

Halo Twin Rail Courier tyre

We've had a lot on our plate what with moving servers and associated faffing, but things have calmed down enough for us to fire up the random number generator and pick five names from the e-Hat: those five people will be sporting funky Halo Twin Rail tyres very soon, and they are:


Trek Sal
sc129806 (catchy!)

Congrats to you five, and sorry to everyone who's going to have to spen money on rubber instead... Next up in schwag corner it looks like we might have a literary prize for all you bookworms out there. Check back soon!


Last week's Schwag Grab  offered a taste of adventure, this week… it's a taste of rubber!

Not any old rubber either courtesy of Ison Distribution we've got five pairs of the very fine Halo Courier Twin Rail tyres worth £200 in total (okay £199.95 then) to give away to five lucky road.cc users.

Available in a variety of colours to match your steed – well as long as it's white, pink, green or purple, or you can play it safe with black or the two-tone black and grey dual compound Courier Twin Rail we tested.

The Courier Twin Rail may primarily be aimed at the urban cyclist on his or her fixed or singlespeed but as we found out when we tested them they are great all-rounders well suited to any sort of commuting or mile-munching – tough too, well they are made to cope with city streets.

So if you want some “Lively, dependable road rubber for aggressive fixers and mile munching club bikes” or indeed any other bike… get commenting.

Usual Scwag Grab rules apply – oh, and tell us which colour you'd like, not that we're making any promises mind

No idea if I'm too late for this...I'm usually late for everything else. Pick me a colour that will out-do my workmates fixie which has bright orange wheels or I'll just go for the Grey/Black option to match my frame.

They all look funky, but preferably pink for me, coz
1. I'm a girl
2. They'll go perfectly with my pink and white fizik saddle

Any colour for me please. I desperately need new tyres as I keep getting punctures. Normally on my way home from work at 2am. It's not much fun changing a tube when getting abuse from all the drunks.
