Shimano and five top-notch frame builders have produced five custom bicycles that are being auctioned to raise funds for breast cancer awareness. The Shimano Alfine Pink Ribbon Auction runs through October 30th, 2008 and 100% of the proceeds support the Young Survival Coalition, devoted to improving the quality of life for young women affected by breast cancer.

Each handcrafted bicycle is unique—with custom paint and graphics, and unique accessories like custom leather bags and real wood fenders—and reflects each individual builder’s sense of style. The custom frame builders: Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles, Rock Lobster Bicycles, Sycip Designs, Torelli Bicycle Company and Vicious Cycles.
