Edit: Details for round 2 are on page 3

I get a lot of stuff for testing, some is free, most I buy. Recently I was thinking about what to do with it once I'm done with it and I've decided to try giving it away, but in exchange for some work.

Items will be given away randomly on my facebook page and if you win something the exchange is that you have to write a review somewhere so that everyone can benefit from your experiences. Reviews should be honest, good or bad doesn't matter.

First item is a set of the new Kcnc titanium groove skewers. They are already up on my facebook page. Details are HERE.

It's free and easy to setup a facebook account. However I can understand that some people just absolutely don't want to have a FB account, you can PM me on the forum and that will count as an entry. I'll see how that goes but I prefer FB since it keeps a nice list of everyone in one place. I'm trying to not exclude anyone but at the same time can't make it take too much of my time or it will become prohibitive.

That would be awesome, I sent a fb message. I have a Jim Merz Steel Allez that I am building into as light as I can. My target weight is 15.1 lbs :)

I posted up to get in on this action! JN2Wheels from www.teamWHAYNE.org . I hope your crowd-sourced review works. With the target market being obsessed weight weenies, I'm sure there are some capable fingers out there itching to have at it.

Pity I'm in the UK, I could test the products in cold, wet, salty and thoroughly miserable road conditions

We are not restricting this geographically. I'll pony up the shipping costs if it's an international winner. We gave away 3 calendars last week and one of them ended up going to New Zealand.

FB friend request sent! I'd happily review the skewers and probably pass them on to another WW for further review/comment.
Great idea Madcow.

As a Winner of one of the Cycle Passion Calendars, I am keen to review it thoroughly. :D ( I am in Australia, So I am very appreciative of Madcow covering the postage),
And will post up on Madcow's FB page shortly. :thumbup:
And as mentioned earlier, I am more than happy to be a part of the review process.
Great Idea Madcow, easy to see why you have a successful business.
It was funny when my wife asked how I had won such a Calendar, I just explained to her that It is all for a good cause, as I will be REVIEWING it. LOL


P.S. I normally dont win anything, so was stoked to read that I was one of the winners of the Cycle Passion Calendars. 8)
