Here at Instructables we are proud to announce the 2013 Bike Contest brought to you by Park Tool Co! For many years Park Tool has been an industry leader in bike repair and bike maintenance, and we are so excited that they are offering up their prizes for the Bike Contest! We want to see your projects about bike repair, bike building, bike accessories, and repurposing bike parts into other things!

Just to be clear, we are looking for an original photo, video, or step-by-step Instructable that demonstrate skill building for bicycles, bike repair, or bike fabrication. This may include other projects made with bicycle parts, or projects that are bike themed.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), April 1, 2013. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, May 13, 2013.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.
