Giveaway Extravaganza: SRAM Quarq RIKEN Power Meter


Your long wait is over.  It’s here.  That’s right…..It’s Power Meter time!  Behold the SRAM Quarq Riken.  Let the wagering begin.  All you have to wager is a comment, so it’s not really a wager; more like just a…well, a comment.

We gave away one of these last year and had well over 3,000 people vying for the chance to own this puppy.  But, alas, this year, just like last year; only one of you will win.  But don’t let the odds deter you; you can’t win if you don’t play.  Good luck!

    This Giveaway reminds me of the rant at the end of the Tubes Song – What Do You Want from Life…

    Well, you can’t have that, but if you’re an American citizen you are entitled to:
    a heated kidney shaped pool,
    a microwave oven–don’t watch the food cook,
    a Dyna-Gym–I’ll personally demonstrate it in the privacy of your own home,
    a king-size Titanic unsinkable Molly Brown waterbed with polybendum,
    a foolproof plan and an airtight alibi,
    real simulated Indian jewelry,
    a Gucci shoetree,
    a year’s supply of antibiotics,
    a personally autographed picture of Randy Mantooth
    and Bob Dylan’s new unlisted phone number,
    a beautifully restored 3rd Reich swizzle stick,
    Rosemary’s baby,
    a dream date in kneepads with Paul Williams,
    a new Matador, a new mastodon,
    a Maverick, a Mustang, a Montego,
    a Merc Montclair, a Mark IV, a meteor,
    a Mercedes, an MG, or a Malibu,
    a Mort Moriarty, a Maserati, a Mac truck,
    a Mazda, a new Monza, or a moped,
    a Winnebago–Hell, a herd of Winnebago’s we’re giving ’em away,
    or how about a McCulloch chainsaw,
    a Las Vegas wedding,
    a Mexican divorce,
    a solid gold Kama Sutra coffee pot,
    or a baby’s arm holding an apple?

    Personally, I’d take the Power Meter over the Gucci Shoe-Tree :-)
