Spring Fender Contest

Posted on Apr 13th 2011 | Blog,

Time for another contest folks. Send us your best fender haiku! What’s that? Let’s reference wikipedia: Haiku (俳句), plural haiku, is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 moras (or on), in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 moras respectively. Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables, this is inaccurate as syllables and moras are not the same. Haiku typically contain a kigo (seasonal reference), and a kireji (cutting word). In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line and tend to take aspects of the natural world as their subject matter, while haiku in English often appear in three lines to parallel the three phrases of Japanese haiku and may deal with any subject matter. Our resident haiku master will select 2 winners. Up for grabs for each winner is a set of our limited Cascadia 29er fenders we produced several years ago. The winner gets their pick of either pink or white. We only have 1 set of pink fenders left, so the runner-up will receive whichever color is left. Entries can be posted on our Facebook page
