This is making the rounds today and for good reason!
“Ruckus Composites is a Portland Oregon based Carbon Fiber repair business, repairing thousands of bikes a year for customers, bike shops and frame manufacturers. Every so often a bike never gets picked up, and ends up in the dead pile. For several years we have been wondering what to do with these lost souls, this year we cracked the code. Working with local and national non profit organizations as well as grass roots cycling teams, Ruckus will repair and custom paint these bikes and raffle/auction them off to raise money and awareness for causes that we believe in. The proceeds from these frames will go directly to organizations in need, the bikes will go to the lucky winners of the raffles.
The first two frames will be raffled in support of Presented By Let’s Race Bikes (PBLRB). PBLRB is a Oregon based project dedicated to supporting and enabling elite female cyclists to compete on a national level. They are breaking down the financial barriers associated with professional cycling by offering support to female athletes through crowd sourced initiatives. PBLRB has raised money to date with support from The Athletic and Sellwood Cycles in Portland OR. We are excited to work with them and proud to support their efforts in cycling. ”

A new year, a new dream bike. Easton’s Dream Bike giveaway continues with this beautiful Caletti race machine.
“Easton Cycling has announced the fourth installment of The Dream Bike Charity Sweepstakes, a titanium Caletti race bike. The Dream Bike Charity Sweepstakes is a promotion giving away hand- built road bikes from Calfee Design, Rock Lobster Cycles, Black Cat, Caletti Cycles and Hunter.
All proceeds from each sweepstakes are donated to five charities selected by the frame builders. Each bike is outfitted with Shimano Dura Ace and Easton EC90 components including the new EC90 Aero 55 wheelset. To participate in the sweepstakes visit Easton Cycling’s Facebook.”

Look, camouflage is very “in” at the moment, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Easton would make a few rolls of this bar tape for promo purposes. I keep telling them to put the pattern into production but for some reason, they’re hesitant. Regardless, I managed to get my hands on a few boxes of the stuff and I want to give them away.
Want to win a free roll of this special edition Easton Cycling camo bar tape? The rules are simple. Go for a ride (in the city, the woods, gravel, dirt, mud, wherever), hide your bike in a creative way, take a photo on Instagram, tag #HideYourBikeInPlainSight (I know it’s a long one), then @ reply / follow both @Easton_Cycling and @JohnProlly.
You can add as many photos as you want…
Come Monday, I’ll pick the winner and ship you a roll!
Head over to Citygrounds to find out how you can win a 725 Duomatic Kickback from Leader.

- It can be still or action shot.
- Doesn’t have to be shot with the nicest equipment as long as the photo is engaging.

The winner will receive a PS1 frame, K6 cranks, an Unknown carbon fork and a headset.
Resist just posted up this contest to win a free set of Nomad tires:
“For all you guys that have completely bald, ripped or shredded tires, we have the contest for you. Send us a picture via our Facebook wall of your worn out tire and we’ll see if you deserve a free replacement of new Resist Nomad tires. Is it that simple? YES! Read more for the rules.
Date of Contest Ending: July 2012
Send us a picture of your worn out tire and we’ll see if you deserve a free replacement set of new Resist Nomad tires. It would help if you also sent us a picture of your complete bike also. We obviously can’t give free tires out to everyone out there and we’ll be judging on who best deserves the tires. We’ll only consider worn out tires that have been ridden and won’t accept a new looking tire with slashes or rips that looks like it could have been deliberately done.
How to submit your worn out tire.
All submissions have to be submitted to our Facebook Wall. Also helps if you LIKE our page too.
A free set of Nomad tires (sidewall colors and sizes may vary due to current inventory).
1. Contests are only for Continental US residents (unless winner wants to pay for the overseas shipping)
2. We’ll only accept 1 entry per person.”
This one’s easy!
