A couple of months ago I entered a competition run by Vorb and Essence to win a custom specced Cotic bike, up to the value of $5,500. Yes. $5,500.
The contest required an explanation of how you'd build the bike up and why. I had a bit of fun, wrote a few different builds, and a few different stories to justify them, submitted the one I liked best at the time, and promptly forgot all about it.
Until this morning, when I was gently informed my entry has been short listed to the top 8, which is a little exciting, and potentially somewhat useful considering I've just this week sold 2 of my 3 bikes.
