dreambikes Auction #4: Focus First XC
December 6, 2010 1 Comment
There are only 2 weeks (and 4 bikes) left in the dreambikes auction, so time is running out for you to bid on a one-of-a-kind mountain bike from mountain bike legend Hans Rey and the team at crankbrothers!
The dreambikes auction gives you the chance to bid on the mountain bike of your dreams, while also supporting the great work of Hans Rey’s Wheels4Life charity. The proceeds from the dreambikes auction will support Wheels4Life in their projects around the globe, providing bikes for people in developing countries who desperately need them to get to school, to work, or to provide health care to patients in remote locations.
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.
First up for bid in the 4th dreambikes auction is this refined but ready-for-anything size small Focus First XC carbon mountain bike (the gold accents are killer). Bidding ends Sunday 12/12 at 8PM ET for this beauty (and a size large Titus El Guapo):
The trail-taming prowess of a medium-travel enduro bike. The pulse-quickening aesthetics of an elegant XC hardtail. You get both in the category-bending First from Focus. The secret’s in the Full Integrated Rear Suspension Technology (F.I.R.S.T., get it?). By integrating a bump-busting Rock Shox Monarch rear shock into a cavity at the rear of the carbon frame’s top tube, Focus manages to keep the First’s lines clean, sleek and decidedly un-susser-like. This one-of-a-kind dreambikes First is decked out in color-matched crankbrothers cobalt 11 and SRAM X0/X9 components, Fizik saddle and Continental Race King tires for a first-rate mashup of glam looks and go-fast performance that’ll attract tons of attention on descents as well as the start line.

So what are you waiting for… don’t miss your chance to bid on a bike & change a life!
