Foto Gordo – January’s Contest Winner & February Foto Gordo Contest Announcement!

Christopher Mautino is the winner of our latest Foto-Gordo Sweepstakes with a shot that he calls Riding with Giants. This is what Christopher shared about his entry.

Riding with Giants- just got back from an amazing trip in Baja. Surfing, fishing, and biking were awesome. Rode down the beach from my camp and ran across a massive Humpback whale vertebrae that had washed up on the rocks.

Thanks to everyone that entered. I’ve got the gnomes in the mailroom knitting up a new batch of rad stickers to send out to everyone that entered and Christopher’s prize package is ready to ship (as soon as) we get addresses from everybody. A few of you actually remembered to include your mailing addresses with your photo…and for that, we thank you kindly!

The Next Foto Gordo Contest!

I know this is going to sound like a Captain Obvious moment, but the photo(s) that you send us to get entered in our next contest should be one that you took. You can’t just rummage around the internet and send us someone else’s photo. (yes that happened) Let’s keep fat-bikes fun and free from petty larceny. This month’s Prize Package smells like gnomes and titanium.

The February Foto Gordo Prize Package includes an ultra-lite danger-gnome molded from translucent space-age polymers – One smooth rolling 26×4.0 Schwalbe Jumbo Jim EVO Lite Skin (sub 1000 gram) tire – A Quiring Cycles buttery soft t-shirt – A Bearclaw Bicycle Co. Cycling Jersey (both the shirt and the jersey are size large) & One retro-fabulous Moots Titanium Bottle Opener

We dig getting visuals from our constituents! Foto Gordo is all about sharing fat-bike vibes, so don’t be square…send us some fine fat pixels Dad! My email is If you send us a photo and your mailing address the gnomes in our mailroom will most probably mail you something from our sweet sticker stash. Please type foto gordo in the subject line of your email and don’t forget to remember to include your mailing address (even though most of you won’t). In addition to stickers for everyone that enters, the next Foto Gordo contribution that we publish will win a big fat pile of schwag! (all that stuff in the picture above). I know what you’re thinking…how many space-age ultra-light danger gnomes do they have up in that joint? ~time will tell~
