The guys of Devo -- or rather, our friends Devo -- recently donated a custom-made, one of a kind bicycle to be auctioned off for Lance Armstrong's Livestrong Cancer Foundation. The winning bidder has the satisfaction of knowing he gave $1,325 to cancer research and the joy of riding the coolest bike ever.
The bike is a 57 cm single-speed road bike with red Velocity Deep V Rims/Formula Hubs, a customized Lemond Fillmore from Trek Bicycles. Until it's handed over to its rightful owner, the bike is on display at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop in Austin, Texas.
We bet lucky bidder number 12, who scored the bike, was persuaded by this description on the bid page:
You might not be able to eliminate all the Ninnies and the Twits but they won't be able to keep up with you on your very own one of a kind custom built Devo Bike. So go beyond the normal thing, do the super thing. Bid to help fight cancer and bid to claim this devo-lutionary machine.
