IB13: Full Easton Dream Bike Raffle Line Up

After recently announcing the Easton Dream Bike Charity Raffle, they kicked things off with the first give away – the Calfee Manta Pro. While the rest of the bikes will be raffled off one a month after the Calfee. Easton had the whole line on display including this beautiful Black Cat. Full details about each model will be announced later, but for now jump past the break to check out the bikes from Caletti, Hunter, and Rock Lobster as well!

The Black Cat is a gorgeous steel bike out of their shop in Aptos, CA. Built with an integrated lower cup and external upper cup, the headtube stands out. The matte grey paint highlights Black Cat’s typically stellar paint work.

The Caletti ti bike is as usual an exquisite frame out of his work shop off the back of his house.

Saaaadofffff!

So the calfee is a DI2 bike and everything else is plain old Dura-Ace? All would be a great win, but that’s pretty different in total valuation.

SC Builder Radness! I don’t think I could pick just one if I had to.

@Anthony I had the same thought…and was then disgusted with myself.

@Anthony: so one being Di2 and the other being mechanical really stands out to you, but one being carbon, some steel, one alloy, and one Ti doesn’t? Think frame material MAY change the total valuation JUST A BIT as well?

That Calfee Manta Pro is $4800. A Rock Lobster is $1400. A Caletti Ti frame is $2800.

It seems pretty obvious that Easton was looking to auction off 5 bikes to suit different tastes That’s a smart decision as not everyone wants a CF,Ti, aluminum, or steel frame. As for value, I think there’s a lot of value in those frames, especially when each will only cost each winner $5. Hell, even if you don’t like any of the frames, winning any of them would give you the opportunity for a nice eFray windfall.

I’m not interested in the Calfee or the Rock Lobster, but I’ll be buying a few tickets for the Caletti, Black Cat, and Hunter frames.
