A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
In Elder Futhark, an Old Norwegian language, Raidô means ride or journey. This symbol, like all Nordic Runes may be inverted, rotated or Merkstave. Creating a Merkstave usually implies a negative meaning, not necessarily the opposite. The negative of ride or journey means struggle and we can all identify with that. These ups and downs are part of cycling.
44RN and PiNP are throwing a contest to give-away a limited edition 144#47 ring. I received three purple anodized track rings from Aaron and the winner of the contest will get their lucky hands on one.
The rules are simple:
-“Like” Prolly is Not Probably on Facebook.
-Upload a photo to Facebook that best represents the highs and lows of riding and tag it with Prolly is Not Probably.
-Make sure you have RAIDO in the photo’s description.
-You may also use Instagram and the hashtag #RAIDO but make sure we’re contacts so I can see it.
-Contest ends February 15th!
Aaron and I will judge these photos, giving the winner one of these sweet rings.
Crihs and Luke from Empire wanted to do a contest with COG Magazine and myself to start the year off right. Rather than taking the easy route, as per the norm these days, the guys got creative and set up a pretty rad contest. The rules are above, so read them carefully and please, take your time with this one. It’s gonna be rad!
Wheel Talk is starting 2012 with a bang. Matt just posted up this 2011 Extras video featuring some of the heaviest hitters in FGFS and then, he’s working with Specialized to give away a P-Fix! Head over to Wheel Talk for the info.
The shops and crews Levi’s Trucker jackets aren’t all gone. In fact, I heard that a few more are making their way over to my house soon. Affinity is throwing a contest to win one of theirs, which I think came out pretty rad. Head over to their blog for details.
EighthInch is having a photo contest on their Facebook page:
“Grab your camera, it’s time for an EighthInch photo contest. Submit a picture of your EighthInch bike to [email protected]. All of the photos will be posted in an album on our Facebook page. The person who’s photo gets the most “likes” by 12/21 will win an EighthInch wheelset of their choice. Be sure to tell all your friends to vote!
The photo can be of just your bike or you on your bike. As long as your bike is in the picture somewhere we will post it in the album. The bike must have at least an EighthInch frame.”
The second issue of 48×15 is out and inside its pages is a contest to win a pair of H+Son TB14s. Here’s how to enter:
“We spent the last month trying to find the best way to tell you guys that we think you’re really great for reading our magazine. We didn’t want to come on too strong with ‘we love you’, and we didn’t want it to get weird by suggesting that you meet our parents. I think we settles at a happy place in the middle – giving away super awesome H+SON rims! There are only a few quick steps to get yourself entered to win:
1. Read Volume 002 of 48×15 Magazine (look at that, you’re already done step 1!)
2. Take a picture of yourself while you’re getting your read on. It can be the physical magazine, on our website, at issuu.com/48×15, on your computer, on your phone, your grandma reading it to you while you fall asleep . . doesn’t matter!
