Our first dreambikes auction is over, but that only means that it’s time to start bidding on the second set of one-of-a-kind mountain bikes put together by the team at crankbrothers! You could win the mountain bike of your dreams and, at the same time, provide needed funds for Hans Rey’s Wheels4Life charity. All of the dreambikes auction proceeds go straight to Wheels4Life, which is making a difference in communities around the globe by donating bikes to deserving individuals who desperately need a bike to access health care or to get to work or school.
In our first auction, over $7,000 was raised to support the efforts of Wheels4Life! This is money that goes directly into buying and delivering bikes to those who need them, as administrative costs and overhead are kept as low as possible at Wheels4Life (Hans Rey even pays for all of his charity-related travel expenses out of his own pocket). Keeping the costs down to a minimum allows Wheels4Life to buy and distribute even more bikes and to change more lives in return.
To create the dreambikes, Crankbrothers partnered with premiere frame builders Ibis, Titus, Focus and Tomac, and component and accessories makers SRAM, Rock Shox, Avid, Fizik and Continental Tires to create a stable of impeccably equipped, one-of-a-kind dream bikes that were displayed at cycling events across the western U.S. and Europe.
The legendary Johhny T and the gang at Tomac Mountain Bikes certainly know a thing or two about designing high-performance XC rigs. Take the Tomac Carbide XC, for example. This dual-sprung racer is super stiff, exceptionally lightweight and remarkably plush for a bike that handles as intuitively and responsively as any hardtail. And if that’s not enough to peg your “gotta have” needle into the red zone, permit us to point out that the lithe and-sexy naked carbon frame of the dreambikes edition Carbide XC is complemented by a tasty mix of crankbrothers and SRAM components that will not only fuel your growing bike lust, but fully legitimize it.
Be sure to check out the rest of the dreambikes, and the upcoming auction schedule, on our website right now. You’ll definitely want at least one of these bikes!
So what are you waiting for… don’t miss your chance to bid on a bike & change a life!
