Bikes. Parts. Chaos.

To celebrate the holiday season this year we’re going to throw a big fat Video contest.  The prize will be…

No, not Thor jumping his bike in your living room... a KRAMPUS!

Here are the rules:

  1. Theme: “Holidays with the Krampus” (kind of on the nose I know). It’s pretty general so use your imagination and make it hilarious. You don't have to have a Krampus for the video, you don't even have to have a bike. Use imaginatrix magic.
  2. Team of threes. Everyone on the team must be at least 18. (The winning team will receive a Krampus for each of their participants. Green Sparkly, not Ops)
  3. Teams must partner with a local bike shop that has a QBP account.  The shop will be where we send the bikes and we’ll credit the shop for the builds. So there will be a touch point for future service or questions. Please make sure you have contacted the shop and cleared it with them prior to submitting your video.
  4. All three team members must appear in the video.
  5. Once your video is complete, upload it to YouTube and send me an email ( with.
    1. Team members names
    2. Team members email addresses
    3. Team members bike size
    4. Name of local bike shop sponsoring, and name of contact there
  6. Video must be submitted no later than Dec 12th at 11:59 PM CST.
  7. Videos will be judged on the merit of how much we like them (taking none of the rules into account, or maybe all of them...really we're just gonna pick the one we like the best, rules are meant to be broken), or if there are none that we like, then we’ll pick the one we dislike the least.
