In what’s become a yearly tradition, Sam Hill’s pink kit and frame are back just in time for the World Cup Race in Val di Sole. As is tradition, both the TLD kit and the Nukeproof Pulse frame are being auctioned off on Ebay with 100% of the proceeds going to Action Cancer, a UK based charity devoted to preventing and fighting cancer.
Details on the frame and kit, plus links to the auctions next.
Whether you’re dying for a pink frame, or just want to hang Sam Hill’s bike on your wall, the first auction for the Nukeproof pulse has you covered. The winner will receive a custom painted, pink 2013 medium Pulse with a headset, rear shock, and Sam’s signature bar, stem, seatpost, and saddle. The bidding is already over $3,200 though, so bring your wallet.
More realistic may be the auction for Sam’s custom Troy Lee Designs Pink and Yellow Chain Reaction Cycles kit with the bidding currently at $486. Included will be the jersey, pants, and gloves all in medium – which will probably be the only chance you’ll ever have to get your hands on the World Champion stripes.
According to Hill, “I’m really excited to continue my annual ‘pink auction’ and this year I’m delighted to auction off my frame and race kit in aid of Chain Reaction Cycles’ nominated charity, Action Cancer. I hope as many of the fans as possible get behind this and raise plenty of cash for this great cause.”
