Movember Contest – Stickers – Lube – Gnomes

Send Fat-Bike Action photos and videos to uncle and everyone that includes their snail mail address, will receive some stickers. We’ll also hold a drawing of all of the folks that send us photos or videos to win an assortment of schwag. Put Movember in the subject line of your email and don’t forget to remember to include your address. We’ll draw the winner on New Years Day 2017. We’ll keep you up to date with prizes, but I know we have tires that we’ve tested that need new homes and I’m sure we’ll find some nice things to give out to 3 lucky winners.

    Hey Oldbear
    Near miss, “Red’s” real name is Steve Smith. (Or so they say??) Haha!
    Loved that show too and would love to go ride some trails around Red Green’s home base at Possum Lodge! :0)

      Beware this type of thing might go to Sven’s head. Soon he’ll be mentioning duck tape and secret weapons.
      Anyway Happy Thanksgiving from the Oldbear clan in the Missouri Ozarks.
      (That’s Oldbear [Fred] Mama Bear[Sue] and Cubby [sean])
