UPDATED with WINNERS: Uberbike Components grip giveaway

UPDATE: Winners now chosen.

Well, we had to wade through a whole load of comments that didn’t make it past our judgement criteria, mostly the  “without over-stepping the mark” bit… But we had some giggles reading all your grip jokes and have selected the four winners who are as follows (comment names):

– Angela Nicholson
– Jason Lomas
– Darren Tyson
– Serge the seal of Death

Well done to all of you! We’ll be in touch via email.

It’s January and the festive season is but a faint memory of booze, over indulgence, Cadbury’s Roses and satsumas. We’re beyond 2012 but its legacy is still with us; for many that means an extra tyre – around the waist.

It’s time to get out on the old push-bike, blow out the cobwebs and get those cranks spinning. And what more incentive could you need than a fresh set of grips? Free ones at that.

Thankfully the lovely folk at Uberbike Components have sent over four pairs of their already bargain priced grips for you lot to get your hands on…

We have four pairs of Uberbike Components grips up for grabs.

Well if your steed is in need – of a fresh set of grips (and let’s face it, who doesn’t like new grips?) – then all you have to do is provide us with a bike related caption to go with the below shot of the BM caretaker, Mr Craig…

As ever, the more you make us chuckle, the more likely you are to win one of the sets of grips.

Insert crass joke here.

Enter your captions into the comments box below and be sure that you type your email address correctly or we won’t be able to contact you should you be fortunate to win!

We’ll choose our favourite four captions based on wit, cunning and the ability to include crass humour without over-stepping the mark…

You’ve got until Friday to get a grip on this.

    And do please be careful with these Bond, once you grab hold of them you won’t be able to let go…
