Auction Preview! Day 4 – Cinelli Bicycles!

Auction Preview Day 4!

Up For Auction : Cinelli Saetta 105. Full Columbus Carbon, Shimano 105 equipped with Cinelli’s sense of style. It’s a looker, that’s for sure. Lightweight and stiff due to the special shaping of the monocoque frame, you’ll forget it’s beneath you as you power to a town line sprint.

MSRP : $3,000 – Bidding Starts at only $1,500

Also Up For Auction :  Cinelli Gazzetta Della Strada. This Columbus Steel, Shimano equipped commuter is just the thing for year round riding in MN. Classified as a ‘Light-Touring’ rig, it’s both fast and stable. Perfect for commuting around the city or touring out to Wisconsin or Iowa country to escape it all.

MSRP : $1,350 – Bidding Starts at only $600

That’s right. $600 dollars. That’s like almost giving it away. It’s that good.

Did I mention that both of these (as well as every other bicycle for sale at our Auction) comes with a full professional fitting session? Because they totally do.

There’s your Day 4! Follow us on TwitterFacebook or here at the Blog for Day 5′s preview!

Auction Preview! Day 3 – UVEX + What’s that hoodie Dan’s wearing?

Auction Preview Day 3!

Up For Auction : UVEX FP3 + SGL 202 Vario set. The FP3 is our top-of-the-line. UVEX’s lightest, most ventilated and sexiest offering is being paired with their SGL 202 Sunglasses.

The answer, of course, being that we must share the love.

A : There will most certainly be good times at this event. Please see your local GTA (Good Times Association) for quantified data sheets about how many Good Times you can expect.

Q : How does the Auction itself work?

A : It is a Live Auction. You register at the door (registration necessary for participation as well as Door Prizes) and are given a card with your number. Each item is put to Auction and then you may bid in the increment the Auctioneer calls out for the item (‘500 do I hear 550?’, for example).
