Back to School

It’s that time of year again when students hit the snooze button and beg for a few more minutes of sleep. 8 am classes await and rushing out of the house is part of the routine. To spruce things up for the return to the classroom, we thought we’d give away some amazing prizes in [...]

Lucky Random Winner: Bethany O

Following in the footsteps of October’s lucky random winner Kerry Phillips, Bethany O has won our February Facebook contest. We love all our fans, on and off bikes.

Facebook Friendly Fanatics

The competition was stiff this year – bat dogs, dangerous boobs, men in pink tutus, lederhosen, disco mamas and papas – but Jordan’s Banksy throwing flowers was voted Timbuk2′s [...]

Sexy Conversations with Strangers

We asked our Facebook fans if their Timbuk2 bags make them talk to strangers. The result was overwhelmingly YES, with one sexy write-in.

How Do You Bike Commute?

Last week we did some hardcore research on Facebook. We asked folks if they do/not ride with headphones (70% do not) and then we wondered how many folks were actually riding. This is what we learned: 28% of the 241 Timbuk2 Facebook fans polled ride their bikes to work. Initially I was bummed it wasn’t [...]
