Enter to Win the New Canyon Spectral 29 CF 8.0 - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway

Dec 24, 2020
by Pinkbike Staff  


CONTEST NOW CLOSED. The winner of the Canyon Spectral 29 CF 8.0 is Pinkbike user Murphybike .
Congratulations Murphybike



Prize Details:
We’re stoked to offer the newly-launched Spectral 29 CF 8.0 to one very lucky Pinkbike reader in this year’s Advent Calendar. Taking the playful, poppy nature of our much-loved Spectral 27.5 and adding a big dose of capability and control, the Spectral 29 is the most versatile trail bike we’ve ever produced.
The bike is sharp, agile and efficient enough for riding long, and ripping singletrack, yet also burly enough for smashing laps at the bike park or on your local enduro trails. If you’re gonna have one bike in your garage, this is it!

• 160mm fork travel
• 150mm rear wheel travel
• 64-degree headtube angle
• 76-degree seat tube angle
• 437mm chainstay length
• 29er (big wheel lovers only)

We’ve redesigned Spectral 29 CF frame from the ground up, cutting weight while increasing stiffness. There’s also plenty of ingenious tweaks that help minimise the bike’s time in the workstand and maximise its time on the trail. Replaceable thread inserts for the linkage bolts, for example, make the frame impervious to mechanical ‘accidents’ while double-sealed frame bearings keep things running smooth, even in the most brutal conditions. The Spectral 29 CF 8.0 is spec’d up, ready to shred. Bumps are ably handled by a Fox 36 Performance Elite fork and Fox DPX2 Performance Elite rear shock combo. A rock-solid Shimano XT M8120 groupset, DT Swiss XM1700 wheels and Maxxis tyres take care of everything else.



The prize includes:
• An all new Canyon Spectral 29 CF 8.0 in the size of your choice
*Frame colour will be subject to the winner’s location.
• MSRP: €3,999 EUR, $4,699 USD


Learn more at www.canyon.com.




To be eligible, you must be logged into your Pinkbike account. If you don't have one, you can sign up here.


There will be new prizes revealed every day in the lead up to Dec 25th so check the Advent Calendar daily on the front page of Pinkbike and make sure you enter for a chance to win.

Winners will be notified via the email associated with their Pinkbike account within 48 hours of their name being drawn.


Happy Holidays!

So there we go, 2020, who could have predicted the amount of seismic events that have happened and how they’ve impacted us so much!! From the release of the Grim Donut videos through to cringing at the guilty pleasure that is Pinkbike Academy and even Waki leaving (plus something that’s kinda missed me about face masks and riots), years haven’t been much more crazy than this!

In all seriousness though I’d like to wish all ya filthy animals and your families a VERY SAFE and VERY Merry Christmas

 Prize about to go to a bot account , that doesn't even know what mountain biking is. Purely to flip on ebay.

 One would hope that they actually look at the account and ensure it is a real person... It wouldn't be hard to tell. Just check comment history.

 @bonkmasterflex: Sometimes it's hard to tell a bot and a user that just isn't actively posting/commenting appart. Let's hope they got a decent system.

 What is the point of bots on PB? Have some faith in humanity man.

 @marinlmasher: it’s 2020. If you haven’t lost your faith yet you will
  • 9 1
 @marinlmasher: The point of "bots"/ghost accounts is precisely this.... to win the giveaways. Please don't tell me you haven't noticed... advent winners with goofy names and nothing of any kind in the profile who just joined that same day (or otherwise during advent)... for instance Ivan1234567 this year... and only 1/3 so far is actually quite good... check previous years' winner lists and see how many are "blank".
For instance, ocdmimi who won the Vitus Mythique last year... joined during the advent, promptly won, no info, and if you look her up it's some "Youtube personality" over in Asia who enters every contest they can find and posts it to social media to attract followers. PB probably had to walk her through selecting the bike...
What frame size would you like?
???
... 8x10?
No, frame size... not a picture... For the mountain bike you won...
What is mountain bike?
Umm... they have different sizes. So if you are __ tall, they have S, if you are __ tall, they have M, ...
XS
Ok, we'll send a ...
Why ship? This is nice bike, no?
Yes! That's why...
Just send straight to Ebay please.

And then I've seen dedicated giveaway accounts who only log on for prizes... at least I can respect these a bit more because obviously it's a person, who knows what they're doing, but dang lol... joined a few years ago, no pictures/buysell/trail activity, all favorite articles are click-enter giveaways, all comment history is older fantasy contests where you had to comment to enter.

 @2wheelzgood: dont we all wish lol but after last year and OCDMIMI winning I have absolutely no faith in the system they use. That person is known to just sign up for draws all over the internet so much so that you can actually Google them and for some reason they seem to win more then not.
  • 1 0
 I'm guessing by the amount of non-confirmed winners, there's probably a slightly unsettling amount of non-users winning prizes?!

How exactly does PB pick winners anyway, random algorithm, throw a dart at a dartboard, pin the tail on the donkey?

Congratulations to those who win who are ACTUAL active riders.

 @streetkvnt-kvlt: it would be nice for them to do a story about how they and their partners choose winners and whether or not they vet them at all. @brianpark what's the deal eh?

 Wow, just looked through the Spectral geometry. For my preferred middle ground reach of 477mm, I'd need a size XL with a whopping 20.5' (520mm) seat tube.

That's about a 3.5"(100mm) longer seat tube length than comparable bikes. Eek They've got some long legs in Koblenz..
  • 5 0
 You're probably looking at the older model. New one has 485 reach and 460 seattube in size Large. Sounds perfect to me.

Let’s keep on shredding in 2021

 @imnotdanny: I understand that. It just makes no f*cking sense to me at all. I’d love to hear the reasoning behind it, that’s all.
  • 1 0
 @lightsgetdimmer: I guess they will send the bike from the location closest to the winner, which means the winner will get the colour available in this location.
  • 2 0
 @lightsgetdimmer: it is really weird that they aren't just all the same color worldwide. I would think that it's cheaper to paint them all the same tbh
  • 1 0
 @Slabrung: that makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is why they are this color here and that color there. That’s all I’m saying. Merry Christmas
