"Shimano and five renowned bicycle frame builders are offering five custom bicycles being auctioned off to raise funds for the Young Survival Coalition (YSC) this month of October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Shimano Alfine Pink Ribbon Fundraiser is LIVE, lasting through October 30, 2008. It is a special way for people to help raise money and awareness for Cancer research while acquiring works of art. 100% of the proceeds go to the YSC.
Each handcrafted bicycle is unique - with its own flair and personality. From the custom bicycle designs to the custom paint and graphics to the unique accessories like custom leather bags and real wood fenders, each bicycle tells an individual builder's story and reflects their own style. The custom frame builders include, Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles, Rock Lobster Bicycles, Sycip Designs, Torelli Bicycle Company and Vicious Cycles."
Please help if you can.
Many of you have seen my Ti SyCip. Most of you may not know that at the time of ordering that bike, I donated cash to Susan G Komen. That is one of the reasons for the pink ano parts on it (also it looks really good). A couple women very close to me have suffered the disease and any help will count.
