Win a all new UK made Alpkit frame bag for Welsh Ride Thing 2012.
To coincide with the wheels of the Alpkit factory turning again we are going to be giving away a custom fitted framebag at this years 3 day Welsh Ride Thing on the 2/3/4 June
Alpkit loves the Welsh Ride Thing in that it allows the chance to socialise with others while getting out for a couple of days on your bike, being self sufficient and carrying everything you need. No stress, no elitism, plus we all know how much fun it is optimising your kit to fit on the bike for a multi day off road trip. So this is where having a good carrying system on your frame comes in handy. You can read Paul Erringtons take on last years event over in our Daring Deeds.
Here at Alpkit HQ our factory is pretty much back up and running again after our move. Not only are we getting back onto producing our bouldering pads, we are also currently prototyping designs and systems for producing framebags, saddle bags and a variety of other bike related kit.
Now is your chance to win a hot new Alpkit framebag, custom fitted for your bike and one of the first off the production line.
How to enter

Then just like a scene from Cinderella, we will choose our favourite comment and bring the winning frame bag along on June the 2nd, where current lightest bike champ Nick will see who's frame it will fit...
