GIVEAWAY: Linus Limited Edition 3-Speed Bike (CLOSED)

As with any ride we purchase, we want our bike to be as stylish as it is functional. When we make that kind of investment, we plan on riding the thing into the ground. That means years of people seeing us and, if we don’t choose wisely, years of embarrassment. Luckily, we can turn to a brand like Linus and know we’re in good hands. They craft insanely sharp city bikes that have a bit of old school French appeal to them. Perfect for your morning commute or picking up a baguette and a wheel of Brie. Linus’ latest limited edition offering is this drool-inducing black and brown 3-speed. With genuine leather grips, a mid-century brass bell and the Linus headlamp, it will make the morning ride to the office a bit more dapper.

GIVEAWAY Closed – Congrats Dave M.

The folks over at Linus were cool enough to give us one of these limited edition bikes to give to you. All you have to do is:

1. Like Linus on Facebook 

2. Like Cool Material on Facebook (you may have already done that because you’re awesome)

3. Come back here and leave a comment on this page

We’ll pick one winner on 8/6 so you have until Sunday, August 5th to enter. The winner will have their choice of the Roadster Sport Limited Edition, the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition or the Mixte 3 Limited Edition, each valued at $689. Good luck!

Please note: Because of the size of this bad-boy, we’ll only ship within the U.S..
