Get a Jonny Cycles frame for $50 and help a great cause!

Yes this promotion is still going on! It will go until the $5000 goal is reached, and yes you can donate more than once for a better chance.

Donate Here

The background info:

In 2006 I helped with the Bix Fix ride: A fixed gear ride across the country to benefit Histiocytosis. For the 2006 ride Mojo and I worked to get a frame for one of the riders. It was a fun project and I was able to complete the bike just in time for the winner Ken Mclain to ride the frame across the country. The ride was done in 28 days, fixed or not that's no small feat! The finished bike can be seen here: It was a fun project; Ken loves the bike and went on to ride it in Paris-Brest-Paris!

This year Mojo is doing a similar promotion to benefit Histiocytosis called the Wheels North ride. The ride is going from California to Washington recreating the epic 1909 adventure of two young cyclists. You can read about the original ride in the book entitled "Two Wheels North: Bicycling the West Coast in 1909".

For this years ride I'm helping by doing a raffle for one of my frames to generate some cash for the cause. The good news: You don't have to do the ride to win the frame, just donate $50 here for a 1 in 100 chance (not bad odds) to win a frame. This will be a custom fit track or road frameset constructed from the new Reynolds 953 stainless steel tubing. You can view some similar frames here:

To be honest I'm not sure. I'm only handling the fraembuilding end, not the money end. Once the donation target was to be met I would be paid to build a frame.

I've contacted Mojo (in charge of the fund raising) and am waiting to hear back from him regarding how were going to proceed with this.

More info soon!
