Win SRAM's Code RSC Brakeset - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway

Dec 1, 2018
by Pinkbike Staff  

CONTEST NOW CLOSED. The winner of the SRAM Code RSC Brakeset is Pinkbike user LemkeLucas6095 .
Congratulations LemkeLucas6095

Prize Details:

Braking has many different meanings, but for Code it means being fast enough to win a downhill World Championship, or tackle the biggest alpine descents. Or shred a piece of singletrack uphill thanks to the new possibilities offered by E-MTBs. Code is the means to slow down for all those riders that like to ride harder, faster and with more intensity. It uses proven SRAM Guide design and technologies with a larger PiggyBack reservoir and 4 bigger diameter pistons in the caliper to provide consistent and reliable power for all heavy-duty applications. Bleeding Edge technology keeps maintenance as easy as it can be.

MSRP: $244 USD / €270 (including VAT)

 Hopefully this time someone actually wins something, not like the Troy Lee kit I won in September and heard nothing about
  • + 9
 Ah that really sucks! I’d make more of a rant n rave about that’s! Serious excitement doused with piss is worse than not being told you’ve won. Bastards!
  • + 3
 what contest was that mate?
  • + 11
 Wow, see this TLD? Not a good look...
  • + 4
 This is similar with me, but it was VitalMTB. I just aksed them the status of the prize via email after few months. On the next day they sent me an email said that they tried to track to prize and found it lost. After that I got email again from them that they have replaced with the new one. 2 weeks later the price arrived. For me sometime it's not about the prize, but the responsibility. I hope your prize arrive soon.

 @indobiker: I've already tried to email them but never got a reply back. I contacted the other guy who won the contest and he's in the same situation
  • + 6
 @crashtor: Have you contacted pinkbike? They may have a more direct line to TLD.
  • + 2
 @crashtor: that is pants, expect better from both these companies!
  • + 3
 @crashtor: ah, sorry to hear that.
nah @pinkbike should pay attention for this. I think it's better if all prizes sent by pinkbike, not the sponsors.

 Had a similar experience on pinkbike for one of the world cups last year. Prize was a yt bike. I had five out of 6 names correct as did somebody else. I wrote to ask about the process, got no reply and never saw any winner. Don't know if it was yt or pinkbike - but super annoying. If a brand says that all names need to be guessed correctly, which I don't think I have seen happen then any brand good offer any prize with the knowledge that the probability that anyone would guess all names correctly is extremely minimal. Prizes should be handed out of those that get closest and everything should be transparent!!! Rant over :-)

 I'd be squealing with delight if I win.
  • + 1
 There'd be no brake in the action on my local trails...

Come on guys. Where is you pun game?

 Maybe you win a strap on this year. Good luck.

 Hope there will be a poem again, that was the best part of the advent calender last year!
  • + 5
 he's doing interpretive dance this year rather than poetry... can't wait for the youtube video!

 On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me... One set of sra-am squealies.

 Yes!! He's back - a Christmas miracle!

 Is it that time of the year again?! Daaaaaamn time flies.


On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me,
SRAM Code stoppers in type arr ess cee
  • + 13
 Jeez.... allota bitching so far. I was stoked to see it come up. Don’t play if you can’t enjoy just the chance of winning, a garaunteed win is buying it. I think it’s pretty cool PInkbike does it. Thanks Pinkbike!
  • + 1
 Agreed. I remember hearing years ago: "why slag free swag?"
  • + 15
 Where is that dude who sung the 24 days of christmas last year?
  • + 42
 He got busted for taking performance enhancing drugs...That creativity didn’t come naturally.
  • + 12
 nice! when you count in the 2 brakes you will receive within guarantee, you win actually 3!!
  • + 2
 @Jarl666 ROFLMAO. Happened to me many years ago with Formula Oro brakes. Got fed up and switched to Maguras. Best move I did.
  • + 2
 My Code RSCs work perfectly. Now the Zee's I had before that ended up being 5 levers and 6 calipers of nothing but plastic failure...
  • + 3
 @patrickbatemanworldtour89: The brake discussion is such a subjective thing. My old Avid Elixir CR's, with minimum maintenance are still working well. I've not yet had a problem with my newer SRAM Guides (1 year, stock bleed). I've also owned problem free Shimano brakes, all the way from entry level non-series on the commuter to XT/Saint on my mountain bikes.
I've had leaky Avid (SRAM), Magura and Shimano brakes. Couldn't fix them with replaced pistons/seals, MC seals or anything. Just shitty quality... It's all great, until it's not.
  • + 1
 @ssteve: its really not. you buy some Hope V4s, then never have to buy anything else ever again, and you just sit back and drink your hot cocoa while watching others argue about which subpar brake they like best. =)
  • + 12
 Tis the season to have your hopes dashed every single day
  • + 10
 THANK YOU PINKBIKE! Even with such a small chance of winning Im always stoked for this. Cheers to you and the sponsors

 So will all the bros ripping on SRAM brakes all year just skip this one?
  • + 2
 They’ll just say they did.
  • + 2
 This is so weird. No hidden agenda to sell something. Just a chance of some happiness from Pink Bike to its subscribers. If your too old to believe in Santa. No worries believe in Pink Bike.

 On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me..

Or the force is not that strong with Bing Crosby this year?
  • - 2
 Yeah, the “force” yourself upon kids is very strong for him!
  • + 4
 @cunning-linguist: Bing Crosby or Bill Cosby?
  • + 2
 @DrPete: haha, he definitely got the wrong Crosby!
  • + 4
 Again¡!!!!!
I love this time of the year, when I wake up every morning with excitement that I might won something
  • + 16
 And realize you get nothing....yes!!!!

 @gunners1: Every. Single. Year. Nothing. Nada. Nichts. Except extra body fat of course.
  • + 5
 According to www.pinkbike.com/about/advertising PB had 700000 registered users back in 2013. Lets say it's a million by now. If 10% of those people join each day (and you join every day) you have about a 1/4000 chance of winning something this year.

Just give up now!

(This is definitely not an attempt to keep you from joining and increasing the odds for myself. Honest!)
  • + 2
 @Trailsoup: better odds than a lot of lotteries, that's for sure.
  • + 1
 @Trailsoup: does that mean I only have to play for 160 years to win once?
  • + 3
 So many haters in the comments...you have shitty brakes...but noooo ...sram code rsc are awful=noizy bla bla. Most of you dream to have this kind of brakes Big Grin
  • + 3
 Nice way to start the advent calendar! I put Code RSCs on my new bike and they’re incredible. This set would go on the other bike in the stable. Smile
  • + 3
 Hmmm the MSRP suggests that I’ll only win 1 brake. I guess I’ll just put it on the front.
  • + 4
 Really would like a pair of these!
  • + 3
 On the first day of christmas, lucifer suggested sram brakes, i guess he feels lonely down there...
  • + 3
 The possibility is about zero percent, but I enjoy this. Good luck everyone
  • + 3
 Sram code, i don't want to be punished !

 Well good luck to us all.

 "Hopes"? Just crapy SramsWink

 3 seasons on e4's in whistler and qeenstown and never even need bled, srams on my dh bike and need a bleed every 2 weeks.

  • + 1
 And today marks the day I start venturing to Pinkbike on a daily basis... Only 25 days away from realizing I still have the same old stuff I did in November... Smile
  • + 1
 Question: is the differences between the Code R and Code RSC all at the lever or are there differences in the calipers as well?
  • + 1
 Code RS & RSC levers both have a needle bearing in the lever pivot, regular R’s do not Smile
  • + 1
 Calipers are the same except color, the Rs are matte and the RSC glossy
  • + 0
 @wohwee: If someone retro-fit the bearing from the RSC lever to the R lever, will it stop the brake from constantly squealing, slow lever return, and eliminate the need to bleed every two weeks? Asking for a friend.
  • + 1
 @PinkyScar: Good question.. I’ve got R’s too and would very much like to know that. Fancy trying it and reporting back?!
  • + 1
 Even though I'm probably never gonna win it's still fun to know that there a chance
  • + 1
 Question: When are the prizes drawn and if you win, do they contact you via messages on PB or via email?
Was just wondering
