Win a set of Geax Lobo Mas Loco White Collection tires

Two of the greatest powers in the world: 1) the written word and 2) whitewalls.

Show us your word power, and win some sweet whitewalls.

The prize
A pair of very lightly used 26 x 2.5″ Geax Lobo Mas Loco White Collection tires. These work well in a range of dry, heavy-duty conditions, but they are designed specifically for “new school” freeriding on packed terrain. A-Line!

– Tons of edges.

– Huge, reinforced casing.

– Mid-durometer (60A) compound for fast rolling and long wear. Holds steady under high-G braaapitude.

– Super-pimp white sidewalls.

– Whitewalls!

BTW: I rode a pair of White Collection Saguaros for over a year, and they were great.

The challenge
Tell us in one sentence why we should send these tires to you. This sentence can be any length or style, and you can say anything you want. Your sentence will be judged on:

– Structure

– Style

– Raw impact

Post your sentence in the comments field below. Include your email address when you sign in. Other rules:

– No profanity. This is a family site.

– Spelling and grammar count. You can bend the rules for effect, but — dude — don’t join two independent clauses with a comma and no conjunction. Not cool.

– We’ll send the tires within the U.S. If you live elsewhere, we’ll ask you to help cover the extra shipping via Paypal.

Thanks to

– Chris G. in the Bay Area. These are his tires, and he’s mailing them to the winner at his cost.

– Ryan Delong at Geax. He provided the tires in the first place.

I’ll decide the winner on Sunday, Jan. 25.

Go forth and write!

— Lee

    My mom doesn’t buy my tires anymore, and because white is the new black they would breathe fresh joy into my almost-smartly accessorized black bike.

    Those tires would be the weight training elememt that I’ll need for “pumping” up my ACL rehab at my home pump track.

    A gift of free tires is tight
    especially for tires so white
    I’d pump every roller as my skills got much bolder
    till i’d worn off the tread with a plethora of shred
    i’d sit down with some cocoa, cheers to Mas Loco
    and declare that these tires are right.

    Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off–then, I account it high time to get on my bike as soon as I can, and test to their very gravitational limits the new whitewall Geax Lobo Mas Loco tires.

    (Adapted from: Melville, Herman. Moby-Dick, or The Whale. Northwestern University Press and the Newberry Library. 1988. My apologies to Mr. Melville for disturbing his peaceful slumber, as this shameless co-option is surely causing him to roll over at least once.)

  5. A white African-American (Literally) says:

    Whitewall tires were the essence of style when black and white were separated; flow is found when things get rocky, everything seems to be going downhill fast and problems are washed away, blurring the division between black and white: therefore riding whitewalls with style and flow symbolizes shredding boundaries, which is something we should all strive for in our daily lives.

    Because with four kids, a wifey and no job and four surgeries the last two years due to a shattered ankle whilst playing SuMo, my poor bikes are the last to get new shoes.
