44RN 144#47 Raidô Contest Winners Mar 9, 2012

The Raidô has ended and everyone’s submissions flooded Instagram. By my last count, there are over 100 photos with the #Raido hashtag. I received dozens on the PiNP FB and my email. Wanting to be as unbiased as possible, I sent 44RN the pool and had him pick two winners. Each of these guys will receive a limited edition Purple 44RN 144#47 chainring.

Check out the two winners below.

It’s funny that 44RN picked these two photos. Crihs and Tracko submitted so many riding shots that it’d be hard to not pick something of theirs, especially given the subject matter. Guys, email me your addresses and we’ll send off the rings. I hated that we had to pick only two because there are some great shots in there and if I would have known these two clowns would have won, I would have just given the rings to them in the first place.

Who knows, maybe I’ll keep running this one and pick a winner once a month? Should I do another run of the purple rings? At any rate Raidô doesn’t end here. Get out on your bike and experience the ride and the journey!


  • Keep it going, although prizes are fun, I think just seeing amazing user submitted images is a prize by itself!

  • Trackosaurusrex

    totally rigged but only because I take the best photos!

  • Luke Verhagen

    I say keep it running and offer prizes once a month or so, but maybe change up the prizes and make the prolly purple chain rings an annual or semiannual super-prize. I don’t know, it’s just an idea.


  • Thanks for featuring two of mine ; ) I know its NOT a tortoise!
