CHOC Cow Single Speed Auction


TK-Sp3cialiSt

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

I have a 56cm Le Jeune(Resprayed by professional panel Beater), It has Alex Rims AT450 wheels with Tiagra Hubs, 105 front brake with commuter style MTB brake lever, Adjustable Quill stem, Probike seatpost with a comfy saddle.

 

Perfect for a Critical mass bike.

 

This bike is up for auction to raise funds for the CHOC Cows.

 

The Cows have been raising funds for quite a few years and the funding they provide allows CHOC to assist children affected by Cancer. Projects that are in progress/completed include educational courses(that are about to be utilised by the World Health Organisation), revamping a wing at Baragwanath, and building a house in East London.

 

There is no end to the lengths that the Cows will go to raise the funding required to keep the projects running.

 

If i can be so bold as to start the bidding around R2500 with the hopes of the final bid being paid via our givengain account. Should anyone be kind enough to offer donations instead of a bid, our givengain link is : http://grumpyandgiggles.givengain.org

 

I will post pictures ASAP

 

Regards

Mark and Meryl.

I also forgot to mention, if the buyer wants, i can make custom name labels for the bike, and i am planning to add a sticker to the top bar saying "I support the CHOC Cows"

Something to do the 94.7 on , or not really ?

 

Why not. It might hurt a little on the climbs but it can work.

You could ride the 94.7 on this... Nothing to stop you.

 

That is my problem "Nothing to stop you " !!! Will only brake in front be ok ? I normaly don't use my brakes anyway but nice to know you can stop when you want to . :whistling:

I saw two guys on fixies going down the hill past the zoo last year pedalling so fast I thought their chamois were going to catch fire.

 

Respect to the two of you sirs!

LOL

 

I rode a fixed gear in 9 and 10 to and from school and all over.The only way to manage that was to have an 11 tooth sprocket I think it was.I have no idea what the chain ring was.

Got by

I have checked the brakes and they work well, which is why i chose the front as with weight shift when braking the rear has a tendency to skid instead of slowing you properly

The auction will run until next week Friday, then we can arrange for the winner to collect from the 94.7 Expo on Satruday(or if the winner is elsewhere in the country we can arrange shipping)

 

Thanks for your bid dirt-rider

hehe... This ia a beautiful bike. I ride a fixie 52-16 from Muizenberg to Kenilworth and home most working days. Its a 45km round trip. Definitely gets the heartrate up!

 

Good luck with the auction. I unfortunately own more steel 'vintage/retro/hipster' call them what you will bikes than I can shake ten sticks at.

 

A very lucky person will be walking away with a very cool prize for a good cause.
