WIN A CUSTOM ROCK LOBSTER FRAME

The Santa Cruz Old Cabin Classic XC race is giving you the chance to win a custom Rock Lobster Cycles mountain bike frame! Old Cabin Classic is held by Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) as a benefit for mountain biking in Santa Cruz County, and a significant portion of the proceeds from the race go directly into a fund earmarked for trail development at Wilder Ranch State Park. Even if you’re not racing, you can support new trails in Wilder Ranch, and you just might win a Rock Lobster!

For every $10 you donate to support trails in Wilder Ranch, you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a custom Rock Lobster mountain bike frame, complete with a custom paint job featuring artwork by Old Cabin Classic logo designer Campbell Steers!

Here are the details from the frame builder, Paul Sadoff, himself: Winner gets a custom built (estimate 6-10 weeks from sizing to completion) hard tail steel MTB frame with a Fox fork. Wheel size can be 26, 27.5 or 29. Powdercoat color and decals are whatever the person wants except that there will be a Campbell Steers decal somewhere on the frame with the Old Cabin logo or similar artwork. External cabling only except if the customer wants an internal seat tube routing for a dropper post. Threaded or PF-30BB available. Paragon machine works head tube. Tubing will be the shop mix of True Temper and Dedaccai steel. As many as three bottle mounts included. 142×12 thru-axle available. If the winner prefers a road or cyclocross frame, that’s okay too.

The winner will be drawn at the Old Cabin Classic on May 19, 2018. Need not be present to win!

Win a DreamSalvo NAHBS Bike

Want to win a FREE NAHBS bike built by Mike Desalvo? Check out this contest’s information and rules below!

“At the close of the NAHBS show last year I was talking with an industry friend and the question is always “will you be going to the show next year?” My thought was that I would go if I could take just one bike. The 2018 NAHBS is a distance from me and shipping a lot of bikes and show stuff is hard and expensive for a one-man operation. After the conversation I liked the idea of just taking one bike but then the question was, “what will I take?” This is how this how the dream bike contest came to be.”
