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.”
“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!
3. Post your photo on our Facebook page at facebook.com/48×15
4. The photo with the most likes gets the rims!
We’ll ship these anywhere in the world, it doesn’t matter if you’re in Tahiti or Timbuktu. See you on Facebook!”
Sweet. I love mine! Best of luck to the entrants.
Wonka and Chrome just announced the winner of the Hey, Check Me Out! contest and to no one’s surprise, it was Phillip Williams. Dude’s on his hustle and it’s paying off. Much respect to all parties involved in this!
