    2006 Charity Bike Thread

    Ok boys and girls, this year weíre gonna try something new and really exciting. From all of the interest that was noticed from my first thread on the 2006 bike a few things have changed from previous years. Donít worry all the money is still going to charity, and a very good one at that. The concept for this year is part custom/part retro. The charity that will be receiving all proceeds of the raffle (yes I said raffle not auction, give me a min and Iíll explain) is the Young Survival Coalition. Fellow RBRíer team_sheepshead is responsible for organizing Young Survival Coalitionís Tour de Pink charity ride. He will be collaborating on this project. The reason that we will be doing a raffle format this year rather than a straight auction is that the winner will be receiving a fully custom frame from Mike Zanconato at Zanconato Custom Cycles (https://www.zanconato.com). Mike has been gracious enough to offer up his amazing skills as a frame-builder and will be donating the frameset. The winner will consult with Mike once the raffle is completed.

    From the previous interest and considering Mikeís skill with building classically styled frames Iím hoping to outfit this bad boy with DA 8 and a nice selection of modern and retro parts. So let me know what youíve got. At this point in the process Iím receiving all offers for donations at [email protected]. Once I have a build kit all picked out Iíll notify everyone with where to ship their items. If anyone wants to get involved but doesnít have any actual items to donate please let me know, Iím sure we can find something.

    The Young Survival Coalition, a registered 501c3, is the only international nonprofit dedicated solely to helping women 40 and under and their families affected by breast cancer. Young Survival was recently named one of the most efficient breast cancer charities in the U.S. by Charity Navigator. (https://www.youngsurvival.org)

    Some examples of Mikes work:

    That is one fine frame builder you got there.

    How do I buy a raffle ticket?

    We're figuring out exactly which raffle-service to use. It's looking like they'll be available from BikeReg. I'll post a link once the raffle's started.

    As a volunteer for the Young Survival Coalition, I want to thank daneil, the folks at RBR and Mike Zanconato for helping out with this. daneil and I were thinking of waiting until he had more parts accounted for before starting the raffle, so ticket buyers can read what they are getting.

    Thank you again.

    I'm in for at least one raffle ticket.

    I don't have any parts that are going to be worthwhile, I'm afraid. But if there's something that needs to be bought and donated, I'm open.

    And those paint jobs are by Toby Stanton at Hot Tubes, who shares space with Zank.

    I think all three of those frames are disgusting atrocities. Where's all the fancy carbon tubes and stays? I will gladly dispose of them so no one has to look at them again. The first two appear to be about a 64x60, so only a 6'5" freak could ride them. PM me and I'll give you my address. I'll even pay for shipping, because I'm such a nice guy.

    Man,I love those frames.All sorts of beautiful detail.I like the fastback seatstays and the detail on the fork tips although I prefer the "S" shaped Onda forks but I'm just sayin'. I'll buy a ticket once available.

    Outstanding! I don't have any parts pretty enough for a Zanconato but I'll definitely be buying a raffle ticket (or 10, maybe 20, the more I look at the pics the more tickets I want to buy).
    Thanks for putting this all together daneil.

    OK still looking for shifters, cranks, BB, headset, seatpost, saddle options and incidentals.

    Anyone that's either e-mailed me or posted here I have you on record. I'll send followups once the list is finalized. thanks again everyone... Things are looking great. We're going to have one heck of a build here.

    Mods can I get a sticky here?

    Crank Set and Bottom Bracket

    I offer my DA double crank (175mm, 53/39) with DA bottom bracket, both square taper. It should be perfect for a semi-retro 8/9 sp. Obviously used, but in good condition for their age.

    I also have a set of handlebars which I'm happy to offer; they're only 40 cm. though, and anatomic bend.
