Can a bicycle change someone’s life? Crankbrothers and Performance Bike think so. They’ve teamed up with Wheels4Life to auction off some top-of-the-line, custom-built bikes with 100 percent of the proceeds going to put bicycles in the hands of those who need them.
Since its founding in 2005, Wheels4Life has provided more than 2,000 bicycles to people in more than 20 countries, including Afghanistan, Nepal, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.
Wheels4Life is a non-profit organization founded by legendary extreme mountain biker, Hans Rey. Rey and his all-volunteer team have made it their mission to deliver bikes to remote towns and villages in Africa, Central America and Asia. In pockets of these regions, bikes provide much-needed transportation to schools, work, clinics and hospitals, which are often more than 20 miles away.
The bikes up for auction are seriously bling, created by crankbrothers to showcase their new line of components, using the best frames and components, and coordinated color schemes, crankbrothers worked with partners including Ibis, Titus, Focus, Tomac, SRAM, RockShox, Avid, Truvativ, Fizik and Continental Tires.
