    No problem…I’ll recuse myself from this contest!

    Off topic, but I just wanted to let you know that I
    bought the Banjo Brothers Saddlebag panniers based completely on your review (found the review by looking through the categories links). I ordered it from Penn City because our local people didn’t have any in stock. It shipped via USPS, arrived three days after I placed the order.

    After two days use, those panniers ROCK!

    Excellent review, excellent link to highly reputable on-line vendor. Keep up the great work.

    p.s. The long wheel base on the the Day 6 Dream makes me think a *tight* turn would be problematic.

    Heh…I’m in. The bike looks like a hoot!

    RL: Do you have any worries about the seatpost bending or breaking?

    When I road a recumbent, I would really press tight against the back of the seat to be able to power up hills. This was okay because the seat was mounted to the main rail and there was no movement at all there.

    With the Dream, I can’t tell if there will be much push against the back of the seat under a heavy load or up hill. What do you think?

    I rode the bike on Saturday, I was surprised on how nimble and comfortable this bike is. Another major plus is that it is based on 26″ wheels so it is not too low to the ground like the EZ-1 recumbent that we reviewed a while back, so that makes you quite visible when riding on the streets.

    It is an interesting bike, no doubt. They’ve looked at what RANS is doing with crank forward bikes and made it affordable.

    Just sent an e-mail

    Is this a raffle? Otherwise, I’m sure someone would have won by now..

  9. Ghost Rider July 5, 2008 5:20 pm 

    Enrique, Contest Ends Midnight(PST) July 31th, 2008…you’ve still got a chance to win!

    Has there been an announcement yet?

  11. RL July 10, 2008 7:15 am 

    Dave,

    “Contest Ends Midnight(PST) July 31th, 2008”

  12. Dave July 17, 2008 7:13 am 

    Well damn, what month am I in?

  13. Marrock July 17, 2008 12:02 pm 

    Ok, sent in my e-mail.

    I want to see how one of those handles a BoB trailer. πŸ˜‰

    And to quote the great Douglas Adams: “Time in an illusion, lunchtime doubly so”.

    I wrote a couple of weeks ago, but it doesn’t seem to have made it through. I bought my Dream 21 from a dealer and rode it home (80 miles). This is more than double my longest mtb ride to this date. Loaded with the stock rear racks and front lowrider panns, it does well. The seat has held up well under my 210 lb weight for the last 500 miles or so. Swapped out the Kendas for Forte City STK semi slicks and am looking forward to the next 500!

    I entered the contest and crossed my fingers.

    The Day 6 looks like it is just the right height. I get tired of ducking from low hanging branches on a mountain or comfort bike. Arecumbent bike is too scary for me since it is so low to the ground.

    Ride With A Smile!

    I entered the contest, too, and crossed not only my fingers but my legs. I had a serious tear to my ACL back in February and it’s hard for me to ride my regular bike anymore. These are very comfortable and for the person who mentioned the tight turns, they turn on a dime! Actually, it’s a little scary how quick they turn. I only came close to wiping out once! =)

    If you don’t win (because I plan on it!), check out your local dealer which can be found on the Day6 website. Ours let us take one for a test ride. Comfortable ride, great height, cushy seat.

    July 31st, right?

    Waiting to go on a bike ride,

    Yay! Another librarian!

  18. Marrock July 29, 2008 7:29 pm 

    Hey, if I can’t win the bike I’ll settle for a Banjo Brothers Commuter Backpack. πŸ˜‰

  19. RL July 29, 2008 10:21 pm 

    Marrock,

    Sure dude no problem! We’ll send a Bianchi Forza with it….

    C’mon, we can’t play favorites…you have as much chances of winning as anyone.

  20. Marrock July 30, 2008 3:05 pm 

    I wasn’t talking favorites, I was talking consolation prizes.

    And I don’t know this Bianchi chick, but unless she can make a killer sandwich I’m not interested.

  21. Ghost Rider July 30, 2008 3:14 pm 

    Since I was forced to recuse myself from this contest, does that mean that I get the Forza as a consolation prize? Does Bianchi even make the Forza anymore? If so, you know what color I want mine in…

  22. RL July 30, 2008 9:26 pm 

    No SOUP FOR YOU!!!

  23. Frank Bower July 31, 2008 11:53 am 

    Is the bike in the contest the large or the small frame?

  24. RL Policar July 31, 2008 11:57 am 

    I think this one is the smaller frame. I’m a strapping 5’7″ tall…and I fit on it, but probably is a big on me.

  25. Juli Dort August 2, 2008 6:25 pm 

    I sent the same answer that won. How was the winner decided?

  26. RL August 2, 2008 11:28 pm 

    Juli,

    We had over 300 entries with the SAME EXACT answer to the one that won.

    Basically what we did was print out all the names…yes all 300+. Put them in a bowl, had my daughter pull the name of the winner.

    Thanks,

    RL

    Who won the Day6 Dream contest?

  28. Cecelia Thomas August 9, 2009 1:49 pm 

    I have been checking the dream 6 bike out for quite some time. Unfortunately, it hasn’t come down to meet my pocketbook.
    The review you gave is exactly what I was hoping for in a bike.

  29. onthuhlist September 2, 2010 8:56 am 

    Arrrgh! Where was I in July ’08?! I had read about Day 6 bicycles 3 months prior, but didn’t know about the giveaway until now. :(
