Trek Crossrip Comp
Value: $1,180 Opening Bid: $475
From Trek: If you’re searching for one bike to do it all, look no further than than Trek’s CrossRip Comp. This machine is ready for the road, gravel, commutes and even some cyclocross racing. Its light aluminum frame teams up with a carbon fork, making it fast and fun to ride. Shimano gives you a 24-speed drivetrain with three-ring cranks up front that are perfect for the steepest hills. And since you have rack and fender mounts as well, you have some gear-hauling and foul-weather capacity. Disc brakes give you all-conditions stopping too, so go ahead, commute all winter long and tour the sloppiest dirt roads. The tires are Bontrager Hard-Cases, so flats are pretty much a thing of the past as well.
Thank you to Avenue Cyclery for donating this bike.
Xtracycle Cargo Node
Value: $1,800 Opening Bid: $725
From Xtracycle: The Cargo Node has the power to transform your life because it can haul you — and your stuff. With a cargo bike, you can truly drive less. Xtracycle designed the Cargo Node to carry all your stuff but also fold up — in 10 seconds — so that you can take it in an elevator, store it in your apartment or throw it in the back of a taxi.
Thank you to Xtracycle for donating this bike.
Salsa Vaya Claris
Value: $1,099 Opening Bid: $450
From Salsa: The Vaya is fun with a load and without. It’s fun on the road and on mixed terrain. It’s fun to ride leisurely and to hammer. It is one of the most versatile bikes on the marketplace right now. If you want a bike that is capable of loaded touring, but also doesn’t feel like you’re dragging an anchor around when you’re not on tour, then the Vaya is for you.
