The Story

How did BNB come upon such stunning bicycles?  When Pedro’s was looking for great bikes for their 2010 Elite Cylcocross teams, they decided to stir up the passions of each coast by having their West Coast Team race on bikes made on the East Coast (Circle A’s) and their East Coast Team race on bikes made on the West Coast (Chris King Cielos).

After the season ended, Pedro’s donated two of these custom-made Cielo cross bikes to Bikes Not Bombs and we are excited to announce that they will be auctioned online! The bikes are each valued at over $2,500 but we’ll start the bidding at only $1! All of the proceeds will support Bikes Not Bombs’ work using the bicycle as a vehicle for social change, both locally and globally.
