Reflex ++ achieves this by using data from 3D digital accelerometers including gyroscope and thermistors. It continually analyses the data to make seamless adjustments to benefit the rider, probably better and quicker than the rider can. In reality it is a form of artificial intelligence.

 I've literally been here playing this silly game for 10 years straight and have not won a single thing, but some chump makes a pb account in December 2019 only to sell a bike in the buy sell section and wins instantly. dope..

 I’ve been playing the lotto everyday since I was legal, I’ve mortgaged my parents house to afford the tickets, I buy more 50/50 tickets than the rest of the hall at my local legions meat draw - never won Frown
I just saw that some woman named Karen is set for life after receiving a scratch off in her Christmas stocking. She’s never even played before!!!! Doesn’t anyone know how lottery odds work?!! By my maths I should have won 100 times already Karen!

 @mitochris: @CapedBaldy I've read about people like this a few years ago. For some it is their FT job, signing up for contests.
She's probably an extreme couponer and loves yard sales. I wonder if she is single.

 @kingpin2607: Why not? These contests are run exactly for that reason... to bring more people in and create accounts. Pinkbike then uses those numbers to help sell ad space and generate revenue to keep the lights on and keep generating great content. This is the way the world works... don't like it, then would you prefer to pay $30 a month and have no ads, advertorials or sponsored contesting like this at all? Just be happy you're alive and well enough to complain about trivial bullshit that affects your life in no way what-so-ever.

 very sad too see all those fake accounts win, should set up some rules for next time.
  • 29 6
 There should definitely be a minimum engagement limit i.e a certain amount of comments or forum posts to be made annually in order to be eligible for the giveaway. That way people who actually contribute to pinkbike get rewarded instead.
  • 33 1
 @AD4M: Great idea but @Waki would win everything.
  • 15 2
 Why fake ? 90% of this winning accounts was created 2010-2017.

 @majky: yeah I thought it wasn't too bad with only 3 actual fakes and only 2 of them created just before this giveaway.
  • 2 1
 Yes! What could reasonably be implemented?

 This year I'm just gonna set up a hundred different accounts. As if I wasn't pissed enough to see the vitus go to fake account but it looks like the pole frame did to straight bunk!!!
  • 2 3
 Wow and all 3 tld helmets went to fake accounts too lmao this is absolutely a joke!!!
  • 14 0
 @AD4M: Thinking the posting requirements be a bit harsh. I would think there are many people like myself using Pinkbike and reading articles daily. Comment section here is for the most part pure gold, even tho I rarely if ever feel the need to speak up myself. This pertains not only to forums on Pinkbike but pretty much every site I visit daily. Would seem a bit unfair for the ones who are readers and not necessarily post comments.

That said, putting restrictions on a Hot off the Press account is just plain reasonable.
  • 3 0
 @AD4M: I’ve had an account for a while but I’m just a lurker. Should I not be able to win?
  • 2 1
 @AD4M: There is a bike forum in Brazil that they require something like that in order to post stuff for sale or even to buy items. You have to be active, participate in conversations, etc.
  • 1 1
 Well to build on my original point, it could even be buysell items or trailfork ride logs, just something to actually show that you're using your account as intended by @pinkbike and not just for the sole purpose of the Xmas advent giveaway.
  • 2 0
 @yvidal: Pretty much every forum, motorcycles, vehicles, sleds etc etc all require a certain threshold to be passed before you can buy or sell things. Stops things exactly like this.

 What... the one "fake account" that actually belongs to someone that maybe doesn't mountain bike... oh well... may as well end it now... bye.
  • 4 0
 @mhoshal: Why do you think they are fake? Because they don't waste time commenting on useless bullshit like us? I used to lurk and read for years on this site before I got more involved. Plus two of those accounts have photos and rides posted... bitter much?
  • 2 1
 @islandforlife: If you google the name of the account that won the Vitus there's a twitter page for this middle-age woman who enters giveaways as seemingly her full-time job. Her account was literally created the 4th of December 2019
  • 2 0
 @matt-15: Yep saw that... lots of those people around and I'm ok with that. It's not like keeping someone like that from entering would change the chances of me winning in any sort of meaningful way. And any rules put in place to keep someone like that out would be unfair to many others and/or go against the reason Pinkbike runs this contest = to get more views and new accounts.

 Probably simply a numbers and probability game... I'm sure there are far more users from those areas. People don't realize how difficult it is to win one of these. Do you publicly comment your hate for your local lottery when you don't win?

 We can all complain as much as we like, but the easiest and quickest solution to fake accounts winning prizes is simply not to do the advent calendar next year. We all lose that way.

 Those 20XX 0 0 numbers sure seem like they warrant a second look. Yes, one of them is 2011 but zero posts in 9 years. My guess is that last login as of November 30 of last year was December 25, 2018.

 @Hill-Seeker: I think you underestimate the power of lurkers.

 So if I haven't played the lottery in 10 years, buy a ticket tomorrow and win... should they take it away from me and give it to someone who has been playing every week for 30 years?
  • 3 2
 @islandforlife: not the same. you have to pay to play the lottery. This is free to play you lose nothing in not being selected, however, as this is a way of pinkbike saying "thanks for being a part of the community" i think those who actually contribute to the site by following other users, posting in forums, comments, etc should actually be eligible. why tf are you even gonna make an account if you arent gonna partake? You can watch all the vids and read all the articles perfectly fine without having an account. That's why I think its BS to give it to an account with no activity.
  • 2 0
 @RGonz: while i get what you're saying I use PB for Buy Sell more then anything and lurk on the rest of the site.. If that's okay with you.

 im glad someone else noticed this happening this year. i don't mind newer members winning and members that post videos and pictures. but users that have nothing, this isn't fair for people that have been around for years and years.
  • 2 0
 @zyphen: Obviously you are free to do whatever you want in your free time and I dont think there should be any kind of minimum level of activity to have a pb account. I just think less active (read not active) accounts should not be eligible for giveaways.
  • 3 0
 @RGonz: Haha, total bullshit. Pinkbike does this contest to gain more accounts... specifically to use those numbers to gain advertisers and generate ad revenue.

Don't like it, don't play or don't visit the website easy as that.
  • 2 0
 I don't know if these metrics are terribly sound for what you're implying... I've only been a member since 2015 and I have 1 follower and 0 trailforks points. Right now there is one buy/sell ad on my page and nothing else. My account probably looks at least somewhat suspect despite the fact that I'm a pretty active member here.

 @islandforlife: Pinkbike does this contest to gain more accounts... specifically to use those numbers to gain advertisers and generate ad revenue.

You wrote i think about this kind of event. Numbers gives more money than the content.

In my opinion, such an event can be created either to "reward" active users or attract new ones. But the ultimate goal should always be the acquisition of content, both generated by the newsroom and especially by users. Otherwise we all stop posting photos, videos or commenting and then let's see how the site goes Smile

 Well I'm stoked to have won using my fake account. To all the lottery police out there, what is the measure of an active Pinkbike user?
Are you more entitled because you like to whine about things on the internet and post photos? By the sounds of it that seems to be the measure that a lot of you are using.
I believe this might be my first ever comment - can I be considered an active user now?
I shall enjoy my prize knowing I did nothing to earn it, and neither did anyone else Smile

Smile somebodies got a free bike they don't know about just waiting in their invox... SWEET!

 Perhaps use Trailforks points to determine if you are eligible to enter for certain prizes, or even enter at all? It's a free contest so I'm not complaining. Thank you PB for all your efforts.
