Your donation is included in the purchase price! Each purchase of the ARTCRANK Shop Bike complete bicycle will in turn be a donation of a complete bicycle to a community in Africa. Each purchase of a ARTCRANK Shop Bike frame set will donate a mechanic's tool kit to those communities to maintain their bicycles. In rural African communities, these bike provide access to transportation that allows people to seek out healthcare, an education and economic opportunity. In purchasing this bike or frame set, you are not only getting a skidtastic, urban and off-road shredder, you are also making other peoples' lives better.
We built this bike to mirror the rugged, simple build that the World Bicycle Relief provides to the lucky recipients in Africa. Built to take the abuse of aggressive urban errand running, off-road madness and world record skid contests in the ally, this bike would be perfect for anyone commuting from village to village in rural Africa.
Each part of this bike is well appointed and hand built on-site at Handsome Minneapolis to ensure quality. To guarantee that the bike will end up in your hands well-built and ready to ride, Handsome will foot the bill for the shipping and build labor at the bike shop of your choice.
You heard that right, you make the purchase and we do the rest. All you have to do is let us know who your favorite shop is, and we make sure that the bike gets there and is good to go for you to rally out of their door on your new steed.
After your purchase, World Bicycle Relief will set up someone with either a mechanic kit or complete bicycle. You will soon receive a gift card from WBR thanking you for your donation. Lives are altered in a significant and positive way.
ARTCRANK is a show of bicycle-inspired poster artwork that introduces people to talented local artists and sends them home with affordable, original works of art. Since its 2007 debut in Minneapolis, ARTCRANK has held shows in Portland, San Francisco, New York, Austin, Los Angeles and London.
This year, ARTCRANK will add new shows in four cities, including a collaboration with Vélib’, the Paris bike share program. ARTCRANK uses creativity to change how people think about bicycles and grow the cycling community. Find out more about ARTCRANK
