Raffle Tickets are on their way. You can get them at Bikereg.com. Or you could buy from me directly. Federal law prohibits me from mailing raffle tickets. If you do BikeReg I'll fill out the ticket with your information, and send a confirmation to you that this has been done.
What does this mean for you? Just an opportunity to win a Custom Steel frame and fork from Independent Fabrication. For those of you concerned about the omission of a Cyclo-Cross Frame and fork, my mistake. Yes, you could choose a Planet X if you wanted, or a touring bike, like the Independance. The skys the limit. Maybe you want a 29er frame with rack braze-ons and 6 waterbottle mounts, Spoke mounts and built in IPod headphone routing (maybe not). It's your call. If you want to upgrade to a Ti, Ti/Carbon, Reynolds 953, Steel/Carbon, Factory Lightweight, you can, just by paying the price difference. So lets say you win, and want a Custom Ti Planet X, with a Sterling Silver headbadge and Carbon Fork. Instead of paying $3,850 (ouch), you only pay $1950. Thats a pretty big difference. Of course if you just want a Steel Planet X you get one of the greatest custom frames ever built, a $1900 value, for the price of a $5 ticket (buy two).
The drawing will be on 5/25/07 at the first ever "Philly-Bike Show-Off". This is going to be a Big-Bad Productions event. The Space hasn't been finalized yet, but it will be a big space where people can come, check in their bikes and hang them on the wall, where every-one can Show-Off their bike. Beaters, bling'rs, utility, and freak bikes are welcome. A 12month calendar of Philly bikes will be created from this show. I'll have a studio set-up in the corner to shoot the bikes, and a vote will be taken on the favorite twelve bikes of the show.
