 Read and follow all the rules or you wont win! Especially the part about not talking in the car when you drive to the the local Orbea shop to pick it up!

Way to go Orbea/ PB I would think with the global shortage folks wouldn't be giving away bikes! So hats off....I guess delivery might be April 2022...but still great.

If I win I will get it to be Vlad's bike color and claim it was his bike. My mancrush for Vlad can live on.

 @Heidesandnorth: You took the time to type something amusing so I may as well respond. I was actually mucking about at first, but when the guy (and the prop jockeys) failed to spot that I was making a joke and took offence at my faux taking of offence (it's easy to oversestimate people's sense of humour isn't it?), I got annoyed at the dumbness of it all and it got a bit out of hand. Also, given the nature of time zones, when Americans are at work the French are often getting drunk, which can lead to certain issues. The internet can drag us into some silly shit sometimes and it should probably never have been invented. Thanks for your 5-star review.

 Reading thru the Contest Term and Conditions page it says:

“ Timing:
The Contest is open from February 4, 2021 at 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (“PST ”) to February 18, 2021 at 11:59 AM PST (the “Contest Period”) “

While 2 lines below the CTT, the contest period is defined as:

**February 11, 2021 at 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (“PST ”) to March 14, 2021 at 11:59 AM PST (the “Contest Period”)

It doesn't really matter that much tbh as my chances are near zero, but I thought that it should be correctly defined.

 I'm 5'10" and I'd definitely take the SM. I've been riding since the good ol' days - when "big" downhill bikes had tiny cockpits. A slightly smaller frame suits me just fine. Especially considering everything about this beauty gives me goosebumps.

 The reason for only small and XL being available is probably because Orbea doesn't want to give away a bike in a more popular size (M or L) that they would have an easier time selling. That being said, if it puts anyone off entering because the bike won't fit them, I'm not complaining (about a possibly smaller entry size, and therefore the same chance of winning: 0%, but I still enter anyway).
  • 1 0
 OK that Orbea is one bad ass bike and I for one am amazed they ended up so deep into the mountain bike Enduro and beyond. They look lust worthy and solid I wanti wanti....cyan getti getti
