We have a winner! Ultimate Schwag Grab! Win a Trek 7.3 FX worth £400*

Grab yourself a stylish commuting steed in our biggest Schwag Grab ever!

by Tony Farrelly   August 28, 2009  

Right, tiffin has been taken and the random number generator has done it's thing… it was a great ride while it lasted and we'll have to do it again VERY soon, but for now we have a winner… maci234 the bike is yours.

According to his profile maci234 doesn't have a bike at the moment either so the random number generator truly did it's work well, so long as you ride it, and we'll be checking. As soon as we get back from Eurobike it'll be going in a box and heading your way to Scotland. Enjoy it.


If you missed out, read on to see what you would have won had the random number generator picked you. A Trek FX 7.3 flat barred commuter guaranteed to get you around town and beyond in the finest of styles courtesy of some cool Bontrager finishing kit.

Our prize bike is a never been ridden** 20in model - so ideal for those from around average height to verging on the tall – 5ft 8in and up.

The usual rules apply with a couple of slight tweaks this time out, as ever simply comment below to enter - one comment per person thank you (anyone entering more than once will have all their entries deleted).

As this is a biggie the tweak is that we'll be keeping it open until Friday 28th OR until we have 399 comments (So tell your friends)  - the draw will be at tiffin time either on the Friday or when we hit the magic 399. 

The other tweak is that the prize is that we'll only post the prize to UK residents - anyone else can enter, but if you live anywhere else in the world you'll have to come and collect it yourself… we gotta eat y'know.

* Okay, £399.99

** Okay, Dave rode it up the hill

Please put me in the draw to win. Currently doing 14 miles per weekday on a 20 year old Mountain bike which my parents bought me for Christmas when I was 10. It's now falling apart! Cheers

Wouldn't it be nice to whizz around on a freebie. That would bring a really big smile to cycling.
