    We’ve got a load of chainstay protectors to give out today. Usual time 2pm.

    Heads up for next week..

    We have an ex test bike to give away! It’s a Focus hardtail in size large. It’s been in our bike store for many months and we thought the best home for it would be with one of you guys. I’ll post more details on it’s spec and a few pics later via our Twitter feed. But here’s kicker..

    If you want to be in it to win it you have to do more then just follow our twitter feed at http://twitter.com/singletrackmag

    We are only going to draw a winner from the followers who have changed their profile picture to display our mag logo πŸ™‚ Yes, we are going to try and squeeze some extra promotion for ourselves out of this by exploiting your own Twitter profiles. The logo has to be clearly recognisable in the thumbnail image of your profile. We’ll judge if it is or not on the day of the draw – 20th March 2pm. Logos have to be visible at the time of the draw. WE’ll be randomly handing out some little prizes of stuff we have lying around the office as logo displayer spot prizes from 2pm Thursday. That’s so we can try and squeeze at least 24 hours worth of exploitational promotion out of you πŸ™‚

    Grab a pic of the mag, yourself in one of our jerseys, t-shirts, coffee mugs.. etc.. Well not you IN a coffee mug, although that would be very impressive.

    It’s shameless promotion on our part but hey! You could end up with a bike.

    Remember.. 2pm today for chainstay protectors. Next friday for a bike.

    STW being the democratic meritocracy that it is, wouldn’t it be better to give prizes away to best post of the week, or the OP of best thread of the week, rather than shamelessly ‘buying friends’ on twitter? You ain’t ever gonna compete with stephen fry or lance…

    I’m not keen to leave any more evidence of my existence for Mr Murdoch et al to sell on and use for marketing purposes. I don’t think I have anything to hide but I’m not sure what would go against me if push came to shove.

    No.. today’s giveaway is just for chainstay protectors.. no profile pic changes needed.. It’s the bike giveaway for next week that needs the pics changing πŸ™‚ But we’ll send out spot prizes for randomly selected profile pics that have our logo in them between now and next week too. πŸ™‚

    I can’t update my Twitter profile pic and I’m not the only one. This is the official answer from Twitter:-

    Update: we’re still having problems with uploading profile pictures. This is happening across multiple browsers with multiple file types. We’re aware of this issue and working on fixing it. Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

    Pete,
    You have a week to figure it out. We want to see a variation.. If we posted a logo everyone would use it and where’s the fun in that? πŸ™‚

    Got four small multitools on my desk this morning. Going to hand them out to Twitterers this week for a whole raft of arbitrary reasons. Just get our logo in your profile pic to be innit2winnit πŸ™‚

    Other random goodies may cross my path as the week goes on πŸ™‚

    BTW.. It’s used. has v-brakes but is perfectly fine πŸ™‚
    Sold as will be seen in pictures tomorrow. We’ll clean it up and give it a once over with an oily rag and that. I like the carbon bars mind πŸ™‚
