What's Cool In Road Cycling

XPEDO Pedals & NALINI Shoes Contest: We Have A Winner!

Winner’s Announcement: Congratulations to Rob Green of Seattle WA, the winner of a brand new set of XPEDO Thrust pedals and NALINI Snake road shoes.

One of my fave parts of giving away awesome free prizes to PEZ Fans, is calling the winner and having an actual conversation with them – like Rob Green for example.  Rob’s been a long time reader, and he made my day by relating a story of our own 1- degree of separation. Turns out two of Rob’s buds were riding the RBC Whistler Gran Fondo a couple years back, the same two guys I tried (and failed) to drop in a late ride attack a couple kms from the finish.

We talked for about 30 mins, and discovered a shared passion for motocross (something we both did in our youth), and swapped tales about going to the old Trans-Am races at Puyallup raceway, and seeing old MX starts like Bob Hannah, Roger DeCoster and Marty Smith.

Then we got to talking about gear, and Rob mentioned he enjoys our Tech N Spec section, and even bought an Arundel Floor Pump 1 after reading my PEZ review.  He said: “Yes, I did buy an Arundel pump after reading your story, I actually, in fact, switched from a Silica. Here’s a pic of my bike and the pump (plus Arundel tape and cages). The pump works great, and the value is unbeatable.”

I love hearing this kinda stuff – kinda gets me outta bed in the morning.

Rob’s Colnago will soon be equipped with a fancy new set of pedals…

Thanks to everyone who entered and stay tuned to PEZ for more great giveaway’s coming soon.


Here’s what Rob won:
