Christmas is coming, and we’re all about to get fat.
Ere Research has given us some prizes, so put your name into our hat.
OK, we’ve butchered the traditional rhyme there a bit, but you get the message! Thanks to high-end road cycling component and accessories brand Ere Research, we’ve got a fab hamper of kit worth £180 for one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this page – any comment at all, as long as it’s not offensive – and you will automatically be entered into the draw.
Couldn’t be easier really, could it? But what do you win?
The hamper includes…
Let’s look at those goodies in more detail…
Ere’s existing Genus Pro Cotton Clincher tyre had already proven itself as one of the best on the market by helping to take a World champion, a European champion and several National champions to victory. However, the new Genus Pro CC Skinwall adds a heightened level of suppleness with its handmade 320TPI skinwall. If you want unbeatable control when it comes to high-speed corners, mixed road surfaces or fierce competition, look no further.
We can’t say it enough, but the difference between a ruined ride and a great ride is your choice of contact points. Be sure to have nothing but the best interaction with your handlebar by fitting Ere’s awesome Genus Bar Tape II. This fantastic 35mm-wide tape is made from durable microfibre with perforation holes for breathability, and it uses EVA foam and gel as backing for comfort and anti-vibration. All in all, it’s perfect for long days on the bike.
Of course the Genus bar tape already comes with its own plastic end plugs – and very nice they are, too. But what if you want something just a little bit special? These Dolce Bar Plugs use CNC’ed alloy end caps with Ere’s Centre Plus Locking system to hold them ultra-securely in place. Ere says they’ll be the last bar plugs you ever buy – which makes your choice from the six colours available all the more important!
And just to finish things off, everybody’s favourite – and probably most used – freebie: the waterbottle. Except this isn’t ant old standard-fare marketing excuse: this is a well-specced, well-designed piece of hydration kit. Ere’s Aqua Naturalis bottle is 100% BPA free, uses taste-neutral materials, features a leak-tight seal around its wide opening, and is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. We’ll drink to that!
So there you have it. As long as you keep your comments reasonably family-friendly, you can write whatever you like to enter the competition. You can even tell us why you think Ere (or even road.cc) is great - it won't make a blind bit of difference because we'll be picking the winners totally at random, but it’ll feed our egos.
Remember, if you don't have a road.cc account already, it's as simple as verifying your email address and a password, waiting for an admin to accept (we're usually pretty quick), and you're away.
The competition closes at midday on Monday, 5th December 2022, after which one winner will be picked at random and put in touch with Ere Research to arrange delivery of their fab prize. Wishing you all the very, very best of luck folks, get commenting and we'll reveal the winner next week!
