Crankbrothers Charity Auction – Rotwild R2 World Cup Mountain Bike

Rotwild R2 World Cup Mountain Bike Crankbrothers Complete

The Rotwild R2 World Cup mountain bike is on the Crankbrothers auction block this week as part of a series of auctions for the Wheels 4 Life charity.  Wheels 4 Life has provided over 3,000 bicycles to people in over 20 Third World Countries.  Bikerumor covered the Crankbrothers auction two weeks ago for the Tomac Supermatic 120.  At the end of the auction, the Tomac had a final bid of $3,050 with an MSRP of $6,300.  For that price, it was quite a steal.  The auction for this bike may pan out in the same way, so keep an eye on it.

The Rotwild R2 World Cup is a carbon mountain bike designed for the World Cup and Marathon racecourses.  It promises for climbing efficiency and tight handling.

I can’t help but say that the frame design of that bike reminds me so much of a department store bike… :(

@gringo:
the company that invented that rear suspension design in the early nineties is juchem, a small german framebuilder.

The 1994 Specialized FSR used this design, although with a Horst link.
