Los Angeles, CA, June 12, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The 1000 Bikes Foundation is raffling off a new Masi Special Commuter bike on July 31, 2010 as a fundraiser to benefit the foundation. The Commuter is a single speed do-everything bike with the potential to become so much more. The long wheelbase makes it ideally suited for all day adventures or rough roads and the rack and fender mounts make it a great load carrier. With its derailleur mounts, it can even become a fully geared whatever-you-want machine.
The Masi Special Commuter Raffle will be conducted July 31, 2010. To qualify you may: purchase a raffle ticket. $5.00 for 1 or 5 for $20 at Palms Cycle located at 3770 Motor Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90034 (310) 838-9644, “Tag” yourself in the “I want to win the Masi Special Commuter bike” picture on the “Facebook Fan Page” and remained tagged in it till July 31, 2010; or write a 1 page essay on how the bike would improve your life and send it to email@example.com. If you cannot make it to the July 31st event in person, you can watch live at http://LiveVideo.1000bikes.org for the winning announcement.
