A little late, perhaps, but worth the wait for these 3 lucky people:
Congratulations! If you guys could email me at simons [at] f-at.co.uk, I'll send your contact details to the lovely people at Birzman who will sort you out with your prizes.
The last week of the Tour de France is upon us! and In celebration of that, and the fact that they're official pump supplier to the boys in pink/dark blue/green, Birzman has given us 3 limited edition, Team Lampre Merida pump packages to give away. Each set comes with a Velocity hand pump — equipped with the revolutionary Snap-It Apogee valve adapter — and a Roar CO2 Canister.
"The Velocity Apogee Road is a stylish aluminum mini pump that handles high pressure with ease", Birzman say. The Snap-It Apogee head is the same one as we recently tested on the Maha Apogee III floor pump and it's excellent, snapping on to presta and schraeder valves with ease. We haven't tried the Roar CO2 inflator yet, but it sure is shiny.
Together those two pumps retail for £57, but we've got three sets to give away to lucky readers and as you can see, they're special Lampre-Merida ones in pretty colours, not just your normal silver. All you have to do is comment on the story below, and we'll stick your name in the hat. Usual schwag grab rules apply, and we'll pick our winners on Friday. Good luck!
