Another week, another dreambikes auction, and another chance to bid on a pair of amazing mountain bikes from the team at crankbrothers! So far, we have raised an amazing $15,402… and that’s just from the first 4 bikes!
The best part about the dreambikes auction is that while you are bidding on the mountain bike of your dreams, you will also be supporting Hans Rey’s Wheels4Life charity. All of the proceeds from the dreambikes auction go straight to Wheels4Life, a non-profit organization that provides bikes for people in developing countries, working directly with communities and individuals who desperately need bikes to provide transportation to get to school, to work, or to provide health care to patients in remote locations.
Hans Rey and his wife, Carmen, are both humbled by the success of the dreambikes program, and Carmen would like to personally thank the auction winners: “Thanks to the generosity of our four auction winners, Wheels4Life is able to get 100 children to school in Uganda, thus giving them an education and a chance of a much better life and 60 healthcare workers out into the field saving lives. That is a pretty amazing achievement. Together we are creating a difference through the gift of a bicycle and we could not do it without incredible people like Christiano Samaro, Ryan Black, Eric Vensel and Jon Martens. On behalf of those children, the nurses and Wheels4Life, we thank you.”
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.
All mountain. All the time. One ride on the Focus Project 2.0 and your agenda will be set in stone. And roots. And whatever else you point this extravagantly spec’d trail-marauder at. The 150mm-travel alloy frame features the patented Knucklebox 3D-forged rocker for ultra-high stiffness and torsional rigidity that will rocket you up to speed fast and efficiently — and supply the impact-inhaling action you need to keep on rolling long after the trail turns treacherous. This one-of-a kind dreambikes Project 2.0 is spec’d to the nines with crankbrothers iodine wheels and contact bits in orange ano, SRAM X0/X9 drivetrain, a color-coordinated fizik Gobi saddle and Continental tires. A winning bid will make this fearless full-squisher all yours.
Also up for bid is this ridiculously good-looking black-and-gold size medium Ibis Mojo:
Super sexy. Super solid. Super smooth. The Ibis Mojo Carbon is nothing short of superlative. With breakout design and engineering, the Mojo’s technologically advanced carbon frame and swingarm dole out plush and flickable efficiency by the truckload, and unload tons of confidence-inspiring control for taking it to the limits over technical terrain. Outfitted stem to stern with color-matched crankbrothers Cobalt and SRAM X0/X9 components, this one-of-a-kind, dreambikes edition Ibis Mojo Carbon is worth its weight in gold—even more, considering that this elegantly appointed, performance-gilded 5.5” travel dual-susser weighs in south of 26 pounds.
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!
