Reader Rides is back!

If you've been following our Instagram account (follow here if not), you've probably noticed the #pbreaderrides tag. You can use it to get your bike shots reposted to the million followers on our 'gram.

Reader Rides isn't just for dentist builds, we want to know what makes your bike unique. Did you cut lawns to save up to get your first bike from the Buy & Sell? Do you have a pristine bike from the '80s? Do you have a photo of your pride and joy on the top of an alpine peak?

What we are looking for:
• Stunning images
• Unique builds
• Interesting stories behind the bike
• Retro builds

The good people at OneUp have sponsored Reader Rides this month and are giving away a prize pack worth $248 USD. Prize pack includes OneUp Carbon Handlebar, Stem and Lock-on Grips. Submit photos of your pride and joy using #pbreaderrides on Instagram for a chance to win this OneUp prize pack.

We'll pick our favorites at the end of the month and draw a winner, so get using the tag! No bike is too old, wacky or unique.

 There should be a prize for those that didn't post anything and just rode their damn bikes.
  • 92 7
 Yet comments on Pinkbike articles. Humm

 @Shred-BC: your prize is peace of mind and quads of steel.

 I want to win the lottery but I don't want to buy a ticket. I shall now complain about this.

 Pop it in the post, what's the mailing address Pinkbike?

 Yeah likewise - I would enter my retro Foes DH/freeride steed, but I don't use Instagram. It's funny how it always draws the crowds at the local tracks despite being 15 years old and surrounded by carbon dentist bikes! Big Grin

 @bmbracing: Too true

 @Shred-BC: the ride is the prize
  • 2 2
 @bmbracing: it’s funny that you say that, because I was thinking of posting up my Foes Fly too! I am actually thinking of selling it. Whats an OG Freeride bike in excellent/new condition worth these days?

 Then again most of us already have components on our bikes so there is no point trying to win this.

 @Shred-BC: I think the prize for that is peace of mind.

 Yeah, it would be great if Pinkbike has a forum on here, they could even introduce a category for this, and name it... hmm... maybe something like “Post your ride” and we could post pictures directly there and would not have to use a separate platform like Instagram (and later find all our personal data on Google, as usually happens with those data leaks owned by Zuckerberg...)

But well, since this is not possible, Insta it is...

 Then I guess you're screwed on the contest. Byeeeeeee

 @sledMXer: I have no idea Wink - I've only ever sold frames etc as I re-use lots of the parts for other builds! At least with the retro stuff you don't have to worry about depreciation - have always got back what I bought them for. Think I'll be keeping the OG Foes til it dies though. Smile You don't find many this side of the pond!

But given that they're short, steep and 26" wheels, the PR folks would have you believe that you'll need to pay someone to take it and then they'll crash'n'burn riding it! Big Grin Razz

 My bike is unique because it has no handlebar, stem, or grips.
  • 26 0
 Haha I own a Giant, it would be like entering a Toyota Camry into a car competition.... no matter how modded it is

 From what I have gathered from reading other PB posts, my bike is owned by a dentist.

 Unfortunately the police aren’t always aware of the law on this. When I reclaimed my neighbour‘s (good for nothing heart surgeon) SB6, the officer said: “Just because you’re a dentist doesn’t entitle you to steal other people’s bikes sir...”

Do you pay someone who washes it for you ?

 @emptybox: just simply unboxes a new bike before every ride.

 After riding my ribbon for two years, I finally saw another one on the trail for the first time the other day.

 I have no chance here. I only change what wears out. People with OCD would get pretty upset at my mismatched tires, wheels and brakes but cost and function take priority over form for me. Still, these are some pretty sick bikes. I'd be scared to put a scratch on them though lol.

 Sounds like work to enter this 'contest'. Id rather work for a paycheck, then go for a ride.

 Wait so whoever has the dreamiest dream build gets the parts? boo-urns. Camp on the hill and give it to whoever has the most beat setup! cause it might be fromme, and that might be me! hahaha

 Do you accept ms paint photoshops? Ripmo AF is in the mail...... then stock until I sell my current ride to fund upgrade.

 If you guys asked to use it once before, but never did; am I allowed to resubmit? I've made some changes Smile

 So long as the pictures are of dirty used bikes rather than ugly, perfect looking bling mobiles

 Thought the fork would be number 1 topic in comments, sad to see it's just more chirping.
