Niner has been a longtime supporter of IMBA, and today the company launched an auction designed to raise funds for the mountain biking nonprofit. Eight special-edition Jet 9 RDO frames, valued at $3,770 apiece, are up on the auctioning block. If each of the high-end frames sells for its suggested retail price, the auction will net IMBA $30,000 to help keep your trails open. This auction is available globally, with reasonable flat rate shipping.
“These IMBA framesets will never be for sale – we gave one away at Sea Otter and the only way to get one of the remaining eight is to win at auction. IMBA supports so many important things, and as a company that directly benefits from their contributions, we absolutely must do what we can to support their mission." said Chris Sugai, president of Niner.
The first round of the auction is now live, with auction management courtesy of The Pro's Closet.
"We are excited to be working with The Pro's Closet on the auction this year – they are experts at international auctions and make it possible to support IMBA from almost anywhere in the world." said Sugai.
Riders interested in bidding on the Special Edition IMBA frames can visit www.ninerbikes.com/imba for complete details, links and lots of images.
The first round of the auction ends May 12. The second round runs from May 13-23. For more information about IMBA and the IMBA mission go to www.imba.com.
