CONTEST: Win a Trek Slash with Shimano XTR!

Jun 2, 2015
by Anthill Films  

The real world is sometimes unavoidable. After all, bills need to be paid and homework needs to be done. But every once in a while, when the stars align, journeys into the unReal world commence and suddenly the real world becomes nothing more than a distant memory.

So, how do YOU escape the real world? We want to see YOUR worst real world experiences—your traffic jams, long line ups, spilled coffees—and then we want to see your way out. What does your unReal world look like?

Enter and this custom unReal Trek Slash could be yours! Plus, you'll get a sweet EVOC Bike Travel Bag Pro to carry your bike in for all of your unReal bike trips!

Win a Trek Slash with Shimano XTR

Win a Trek Slash with Shimano XTR

Ten winners will be selected throughout the duration of the contest to receive prizes from Shimano, Sony Action Cam, and more.

Winning entries will be featured on Anthill and TGR’s website and social feeds. A Grand Prize winner will be awarded a custom unReal Trek mountain bike from the Slash Series.

Submissions will be judged based on originality, quality, and how well they illustrate parallels between the "real world" and the "unReal world."

Contest closes June 22nd, 2015.

Just kidding. Sign me up.

 That's the retro look to go with the circa 1986 Muddy Fox paint! Where are the toe clips! Wink Looks like someone has been through the 'gash bike bits box' to build this one! Count me it.... Love it!

 Droppers and 1x aren't everything!
  • 20 1
 I'm assuming it's because the two sponsors are shimano and trek and none of them including bontrager makes a dropper post.

 a bike with that much travel is almost a DH bike and therefore doesn't need a dropper post LOL

 life before the dropper post: the musical

 and it has DRCV...must be a 2014? I'd still ride the crap out of it!

 My bike is broken, the forest is dry, my car won't start, I've just dropped and smashed my phone & I have a wedding to pay for - give me the sodding bike!!!!!

It makes no difference.
They just don't like your nickname, thus you have received your minuses.
LOL Smile ))

 WTF dude its a free bike! Just take all the parts you dont want off and sell them, then buy what you want or just sell the bike and upgrade what you have. My opinion is that dropper post are awesome for on the fly uphills and downhills for AM riding.

 Ditto. Car broke, bike needs work, wedding in August, dropped my phone & cracked it.
Somehow thought I'd tackle a second market for the farm (plus working the day job 50 hours each week). I will spare us the drama and the saga of custody case to see my son. Needless to say we've got our hands full.

Then let's hope that Anthill have more vision than Go-Pro did in their recent competition that was roundly accused of nepotism.

 I ride a 2014 slash 8 with a few modifications. Have to say... this bike rips the gnarly downhill. The suspension is endlessly smooth and supple. I do have a large volume reducer in my DCVR shock which I find helps soften the blow when you hit the big stuff.

 Ironic thing is many on here would probably make enough money at their "horrible day jobs" to buy that bike in the time it would take to make a winning caliber video. lol. Have fun kids.

 If traffic jams, queues and spilled drinks are our biggest problems, than we've got no problems at all.
