Bamboo Bike Auction
I am auctioning my bamboo bicycle and 100% of the proceeds will be used to buy bikes for children in Orlando who live in low income scenarios!
This is the bike that I cycled across the USA in 2014 on the Goodfluence Tour, doing good deeds across the USA. This is also the bike that was stolen in 2017, that I tracked down, hugged the person who stole it and used the opportunity to start a fundraiser to give bikes to kids in San Diego. The fundraiser raised enough funds to give away 50 bikes!
So, this bike has a lot of very good energy and vibes in it. I’ve ridden about 5,000 miles on it and it’s served me well. Now it’s time for its service to continue by turning it into more bikes for kids, and to continue its life with someone else.
The frame itself is a Calfee, $1,000 purchased new, and with the components being new it’s a $2,000-$3,000 bike. That said it has gone through a lot and the frame has had some small cracks, but it is still a solid bike. I would recommend it as a great around town bike, but I don’t think it has another cross-country ride in it. If you are interested in details, you can email [email protected]. Place your bid by commenting here or emailing [email protected]
The bid starts at $300. Bid includes shipping and I will have the bike tuned up and ready to ride before sending! I’ll send a signed copy of my book as well. Auction ends 08/17. I hope this will raise a lot of funds to buy bikes for kids.
If you’d like to make a donation to purchase bikes for kids and not place a bid, you can also donate to my nonprofit here.
Details on the bike:
It is a Calfee Design. Craig Calfee was one of the first to create bicycles out of bamboo and is one of the pioneer and greatest bicycle builders of our time. You an learn more about Calfee bamboo bikes here.
This is a 56-58 cm frame that is ideal for someone of 5’9″ – 6′ height. I am about 5’10” and it was the right fit for me.
*I will keep this page updated with bids*
