been dealing with BMXTRIX since the beginning.
All photos will go
into the new BMXTRIX photo gallery which is debuting in late
All entries may be
used by BMXTRIX entirely and for whatever purpose BMXTRIX
feels is reasonable. BMXTRIX does not get original
copyright, just the right to use the photos within the site
or for additional promotion of the site.
Contest will be running until
AUGUST 15, 2000. Winners should be announced
AUGUST 20, 2000.
Due to postage and import laws Finger Bikes
can (may) only be shipped within the continental United
States. BMXTRIX will attempt to ship anywhere in the
world - but postage will (may) be due on the prizes.
Multiple entries from
the same person are DEFINITELY allowed and could result in
one person winning multiple times- though it is not likely.
