I don't want to be all negative here (lord knows I'd love to win me a KHS) - but I'm pretty sure running a contest this way violates Facebook's T&C.
"iv. You must not use Facebook features or functionality as a promotion’s registration or entry mechanism. For example, the act of liking a Page or checking in to a Place cannot automatically register or enter a promotion participant."
"vi. You must not notify winners through Facebook, such as through Facebook messages, chat, or posts on profiles (timelines) or Pages."
Also - you don't have to just "like" the page. After you like the contest page, you get a message that says: "All you need to do now go to our Wall and post a quick note telling us what you love about KHS mountain bikes! "

Companies (many bike companies recently) do this all the time on FB. So I guess they have some sort of deal with FB.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 13:23)
yeah but who wants that bike and who wants it signed by logan if they want the xc why arent they giving away the khs 300 dh or something cool.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:34)
I would like that bike. If you don't want it, don't enter the contest. Simple.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:40)
haha if i didnt expect to get downvoted for that i would be an idiot. i am welll aware that someone getting second at rampage riding your companies bike is dope. however i truly dont understand why the xc is getting signed by logan.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 0:24)
stokecheech, We know he is not an XC star, but he is a star, most now appreciate that these guys even dress up in a full gimp suit, ballet shoes and get on a road bike for training.
He/his sponsors are just trying to do something to follow up on the back of his rampage success which you can't slate them for.
You are welcome to your opinion, it is a free world, I would not negative prop you for it, it is yours and yours to keep
(Oct 27, 2012 at 0:25)
He does have a point. It does seem a tenuous "look arent these 650's brilliant" endorsement.
Its also going to cost a truckload to build if i win
(Oct 27, 2012 at 5:02)
i think this bike is as rad as Rocky Mountain 790SL
... gimme one!

If you are a paying advertiser, you can pay to run contests like this. If you don't pay, you're breaking the rules. Basically, Facebook is so desperate for money to justify their obscene market cap and they'd probably take money from the Nazis if they thought it would help their bottom line.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:46)
They already take money from hate groups, perverts, and republicans...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:06)
But I don't have Facebook!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:17)
Ditto, facebook is laaaaaame
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:30)
then you don't get a chance to win this bike, do you?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:58)
That's really ok.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:55)
Then what's your motivation to express concern?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:34)
Because ever single contest requires a "like" on FB. Meh!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:04)
What is wrong with running the contest here on one of the biggest mountain bike websites on the www, PINKBIKE!!!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:26)
There are more people on facebook than pinkbike. They probably should have asked you your preference before running the contest I guess.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 22:26)
marketing companies have more access to facebook data, thats why they always want you to like everthing on facebook. then when they work out who got the most impressions they can get paid most, or they can sell the data to another user for big $$
(Oct 27, 2012 at 5:55)
"Facebook is for losers" -the new battle cry of hipsters
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:12)
I don't have a Facebook anymore either.... So only losers how use Facebook are eligible?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:15)
you win some , you lose some
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:02)
You don't have Facebook?? How are you alive???
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:20)
facebook has little to offer me except things like this. i find status updates from my "friends" quite annoying most of the time.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:41)
You can edit your newsfeed to ignore status updates...
(Oct 27, 2012 at 10:30)
or just remove stupid people
(Oct 27, 2012 at 13:04)
Or just not be on Facebook. Doh.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 0:30)
I love a competition and I love free stuff but can I say how disappointed I am that this comp is for a frameset. I can honestly say if I won, I simply wouldn't be able to afford to build it into a bike. Talking 1000 for forks and wheels to do it justice
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:06)
If the contest is for a frame autographed by Logan Binggeli, then why is for an XC bike and not a DH650B?
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:40)
Because its KHS's contest and they can pick whatever bike they want to give away... and Logan is more than just some racer who does the rampage... he's also the KHS Factory team manager... and the fb page that people are being asked to like is the FACTORY RACE TEAM's page...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 16:13)
I saw Logan ride the exact same model as above just yesterday on a local jump trail with 25' booters and a 9' drop with ease. Heck, he didn't even drop his seat!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:03)
Well that'd make one hell of a christmas present to give to my girlfriend. I'm already planning to put her on a surprise full suspension anyway.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:38)
i have a facebook account! and still agree it is lame! secondly i dont believe these comps actually work.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:41)
I agree. Ive seen a ton of FB contests and never heard of one person winning them.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:13)
Actually, I won a sweet pair of grips from a Decline fb comp a while ago. So now you have heard of one. lol
(Oct 26, 2012 at 16:15)
Grips are one thing and an expensive bike is another.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:54)
Very, VERY dumb. Not everyone uses FB, and even so, if it's not allowed, there needs (read; SHOULD be) a way to enter on KHS' website.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 20:29)
It is kinda crap a company tries to do something cool and so many people throughout negative comments. Haters gonna hate and real riders are just gonna ride!
(Oct 28, 2012 at 13:47)
I agree, don't want to join FB( I'm too old for FB ), don't want everyone knowing how many " sheets of toilet paper " I use to wipe my butt. Would be nice if they did the contest different way
(Dec 15, 2012 at 16:21)
.ribeiro.587 you are our KHS sixfifty 656XC Give-Away Contest - Winner!! KHS Bicycles Pinkbike
(Oct 26, 2012 at 14:35)
I like how those of us who WANT to win this, are getting negative props... and all you fan boys who don't XC are positive propping each other... you kids really need lives...
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:30)
You can't win here can you? These kids think the world doesn't only revolve around them, but are insulted when something might be of interest to someone else.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:35)
(Oct 26, 2012 at 13:26)
haha anyone seeing a maxxis facebook contest ad right above this page. priceless
(Oct 26, 2012 at 11:57)
i would love to get this.
Geometry is just perfect
If i would win bike like this i would finally do some riding togethor with my friend.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 10:43)
but i don't wanna book my face!!!
(Oct 26, 2012 at 12:18)
yeah FB sux!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 1:53)
Nice bike send it to Holland please.
(Oct 27, 2012 at 22:19)
Ok..it's mine now..lol
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Oct 26, 2012 at 15:28)
Never heard of the chap and KHS are proper pikey, even more so than a Trek. I'd put it straight on eBay.
(Oct 26, 2012 at 16:10)
Never heard of the guy who was USA nat'l champ last year and took third at Rampage.....'must be permanently out of the loop. BTW, whatever proper pikey means, lousy bikes don't hold up to what Logan does on his all season long.
