The Advocate Cycles Hayduke is already one of our favorite “plus” tire hardtails, and now there’s even more reason to love it. They’re offering a limited edition, custom painted frame to benefit IMBA. The offer is timed perfectly with the IMBA Summit in Bentonville, Arkansas, this week. You can nab one of the thirty frames available and get a free one year IMBA membership along with it. Full details below…
PRESS RELEASE: Advocate Cycles and the International Mountain Bike Association announce specially-painted, limited edition Hayduke frames to be sold as a fundraiser for IMBA.
Advocate Cycles is the first bike brand to pledge 100% of after-tax profits to be donated to cycling advocacy efforts. To coincide with IMBA’s World Summit this week in Bentonville, AR, they have created a limited run of 30 frames from their Hayduke model, with custom art designed by Adam Turman that reflects a singletrack trail, and all the parts of the earth around it. These 30 frames will be sold through Advocate Cycle’s dealer and direct sales channels for $800. Each purchase will include a free 1-year membership to IMBA, with the entire purchase price going to IMBA’s Dig In Campaign.
“My early background with cycling advocacy was with trail organizations that are member-chapters of IMBA,” said Tim Krueger, President of Advocate Cycles. “The work that IMBA does worldwide has created this amazing resource of trails we all enjoy, and that is why they are a primary recipient of the money we generate for cycling advocacy through Advocate Cycles.”
The Hayduke™ is an incredibly versatile hardtail in Reynolds 725 chromoly. By “versatile,” we mean it can be run as a 29er or 27.5+; 142mm or 148mm rear hub; single speed or geared; fully rigid or w/suspension fork. Set it up how you want and go hit the trail. Designed around modern slacker angles/longer top tube geometry, 120mm travel fork, Portage™ swappable dropouts, and internal dropper post routing, Hayduke™ will take you anywhere you want to go, any way you want to get there.
The Hayduke IMBA Special Edition frame features custom desert inspired paint and graphics by Adam Turman, comes with 148mm dropouts, Maxle Ultimate, and seatpost collar. 100% of the sale price of these special edition frames benefits IMBA. Sales will begin this week at the IMBA World Summit, and then be available through all other channels after that.
“IMBA couldn’t be happier to be a beneficiary of Advocate Cycles’ commitment to cycling advocacy,” said Matt Andrews, IMBA Midwest Associate Region Director. “This commitment is a testament to the great work of our Chapter volunteers, and the trails we all love to ride!”
