Park Tool is sponsoring the Park Tool $100 Bike Build Challenge. 5 lucky people will be identified to participate. Builders will be given $100 cash at 10:00am to shop for the frame and all components needed to build the best bike they can until 2pm. The building and display area will be at the front of the hall and will have security. At 2:30 our unbiased panel will judge the bikes and announce the winner. The winner will be featured on the webpage and Facebook and will garner accolades from the entire Park Tool VeloSwap Staff. They will also get a complimentary beer, if of legal drinking age.
All bikes will be donated after the event. Please contact Reese if you are interested in being a builder.
