Brim Brothers & Edge 500 Giveaway Results

Thanks all for the great entries in the Friday giveaway!  If you need a bit of motivation for cycling ideas for training, then go check out all the entries (almost 1,000 of them).  I’m hoping that by merely reading about all your adventures I’ll have burned enough calories to eat more brownies and ice cream.

But, since you’re all looking for the results – let’s get right into it!  The winner is receiving a brand-spanking-new Brim Brothers Limited Edition Jersey, along with a Garmin Edge 500.  Using my usual technique of selecting someone at random, I hit up Random.org and entered in the total entries, plus a few Active Duty folks:

From there, I navigated to the comments section and found comment #171:

Congrats Droffen!  And it sounds like this will arrive just as you start getting back recovering from the surgery.  Hope the recovery is going well!  Shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get the goods cookin’ in your direction.

For those that didn’t win – don’t worry – you can still go out and pick up your very own Edge 500  (though, you can’t get the limited edition jersey…cause…well…then they wouldn’t be limited.).

And if you utilize the link below, you help to support the blog and thus more giveaways like this.  It’s sorta like recycling: Utilize linkage > More Giveaways > More good stuffs for you (and if you’re in Europe, I’ve just added a number of the European countries to the sidebar links).

Thanks for reading all!

    how do you prevent people from commenting twice/three/four/etc....

    couldn't they just use different user names but be the same person????

  2. They could, indeed. Not much I can do there to be honest. I do some occasional sweeps - but in general there's always ways around everything. Even if I authenticated via creating accounts, someone could just create multiple accounts.

    I figure it's somewhat karma based. :)

  4. congrats to the winner :)

    as to multiple entries, i never even thought of that. not everyone tries to cheat the system-

    hopefully KARMA does her job and keeps those out of Random.org

    Thanks for hosting yet another spectacular giveaway!!

  7. Hi! Love your site and reviews. Very informative and thorough. Will you be looking at the new Motorola Android-based fitness tracker? link to motoactv.com - seems like it has potential with a hi res color screen, music player, bluetooth, wifi, etc.

  8. Small correction: It's http://www.random.org (not .com). I was reading an article recently on the new "true" random number generator which had dedicated circuitry in the latest Intel microprocessors. Elaborate stuff.
