Easton Cycling is giving riders everywhere the chance to have the bike of their dreamson Eastons tab. Together with veteran custom frame builder John Slawta of Land Shark Bicycles, Easton is giving away a fully custom, Easton and SRAM-equipped Land Shark road bike valued at more than $9,000. This dream machine will come with all top-of-the-line components including Easton EC90 wheels and cockpit plus SRAMs new Black Red groupset.
The contest is open to anyone free of charge and is a bit more involved than a typical raffle. To enter, contestants must create a miniature version of their dream bike using only bicycle spokes (as many as is necessary) then post a picture to Easton Cyclings Facebook page (Facebook.com/EastonCycling) and encourage their friends to vote by clicking Like. Well tally up the Likes on Monday, April 18, and award the grand prize to the creator of the most popular spoke bike.
The frame will be custom-built to the winners measurements and preferences by Slawta, an Oregon based craftsman who has built race bikes for riders like Roy Knickman and Andy Hampsten (who won the Giro dItalia aboard a re-badged Slawta frame). The winner of this Dream Bike contest gets to specify every last detail of the bike, from custom paint to their choice of Easton wheels, stem, bar and seatpost. Clinchers or tubular wheels, standard or compact cranks. This grand prize will be one of a kind. Visit EastonCycling.com or Facebook.com/EastonCycling to learn more.
