Winner announced!

Well we've closed off the competition now, so no point entering, and the random hand of fate has selected a winner. 

Step forward Duncan Gering as it is indeed you! 

Everyone else, shuffle sideways looking at your feet. No, you've not won this time, but hey, there'll be another competition soon and you might win that one!




Those charming chaps at MEKK want to offer you, our lovely readers, the chance to win a rather lovely bike, their  Poggio 2.8 with carbon frame and fork. 

We reviewed Mekk's Poggio 1.5 last year and gave it 4 stars, so this version, with an even better spec should be good enough for anyone!  And all you have to do is fill in a form at the bottom of this page!

Our man Mat Brett gave the 1.5 a mark of 4 stars and said "Solid all-round road bike built around a very good frameset for the cash - loads of upgrade potential"
