Turning 12 Bikes into Hundreds
Inspired by Hans Rey and his determination to give back to the sport that has done so much for him, crankbrothers created the dreambikes program. The dreambikes started as a way to display our complete range of products. These products coupled with an amazing frame and other beautiful components result in a bike that any of us would create in our dreams – the best products, coordinating colors, impeccable quality.
That was not enough though. We knew that the dreambikes could be so much more. Over the next few months, we will auction off each dreambike and donate all of the proceeds to Wheels4Life, a charity created by Hans Rey that donates bicycles to people in Third World countries. These bikes are used for transportation to work, to receive health care, or to school. For these people, the gift of a bicycle is life changing.
For 2012, we have built 12 stunning dreambikes with the goal of raising $50,000. That’s enough to buy 500 bicycles and positively impact the lives of 500 human beings. That really is a dreambike.
Scott Genius LT Now up for Auction
LT stands for Long Travel, necessary in All-Mountain situations where the descents are nasty but you plan to climb to the top. No problem when you have 185mm and 110mm of travel available, and thanks to TwinLoc you can lock it all out. SCOTT’s patented and unique TwinLoc lever allows the rider to keep both hands on the handlebars while selecting the desired travel settings or fully locking the suspension. Riders can switch between full travel with 185mm, Traction Mode with 110mm of rear travel, and complete lock out of both the fork and the Equalizer3 shock. The Genius LT is will let you explore the backcountry like nothing else.
Hans Rey wanted to find a way to give back to the sport that has done so much for him, so he created Wheels4Life. Wheels4Life is an amazing charity that provides free bicycles for people in need of transportation in Third World countries. Often these people live in very primitive and remote areas with no access or means to public transportation. Having a bike can make all the difference in somebody’s life and can give them a chance to break out of the vicious poverty cycle. The gift of mobility, in the form of a bicycle, can do miracles.
