Every year I give a couple frames away to local events. Each of the events can then raffle the frame and raise money for their cause or event. It’s a great way to give back to the community and be part of events that we want to see in our community. One fund raiser is for local trails, one road race and one MTB race. I donate the frames in the form of a credit so the winner can come in and go through my full design process and have the same custom experience a paying customer would.
At this years Gallatin Valley Bicycle Club (GVBC) road race Tour de Bozeman put on by several local race teams the winner of the frame was Phil Ballard. Phil opted for a steel stage race frame and decided while he was at it he may as well get it built up with Sram Force and an Edge 2.0 fork. Below is a gallery of Phil’s build. It goes out to paint today and I’ll post it once it back and ready to go.
