This could be your dream bike.

Hans Rey’s charity, Wheels4Life has teamed up with Crankbrothers to auction some amazing mountain bikes with all the proceeds going to the charity. The goal: to raise $50,000 which is enough money to buy 500 bikes for folks in developing countries who need basic bikes for transportation.

The first bike up for auction, an Ibis Tranny, is all tricked out with SRAM XX components and Crankbrothers Iodine 3 wheels, Cobalt seatpost and grips, and of course Eggbeater 11 titanium pedals. The Tranny frame itself is carbon, the rear triangle comes apart for easy packing, and this small frame weighs just 3 pounds. The estimated MSRP for a build like this: $6,500. And it’s a hardtail 26er. The bidding started at $2,500 but we don’t expect the price to stay that low for long.

    Awesome!
    Ive been studying the impact on life that a bicycle can have especially in developing countries and its huge, this is a good thing.
    From this list I see Ibis is really stepping up here, several models will be auctioned eventually. Its also nice to see my crew @ Tomac here also, as a Snyper rider I have come to truly love this bike and the company behind it even if it isn’t very popular here in the U.S. hopefully being involved in programs such as this will change that for them.
