Argonaut, Mosaic, Sklar, Stinner, and McGovern — you pick which custom builder you want to make your perfect bike.

Five of America’s top handmade bike builders join forces for the second year in a row to raise money for trails and raffle off a jaw-dropping custom bicycle.

Best of all — it could be yours.

Last year, the Builders for Builders campaign raised more than $40,000 for the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS). This year, SBTS and the framebuilding “dream team” of Stinner Frameworks, Sklar Bikes, Mosaic Cycles, Argonaut Cycles, and McGovern Cycles hope to top that with $10 raffle tickets.

One lucky winner will choose the builder, bike, and paint they want most.

As noted, each raffle ticket is $10, and entrants can buy as many raffle tickets as they wish. All proceeds will benefit SBTS, a nonprofit that works on trail construction, maintenance, events, and promoting outdoor recreation in Northern California.

“I can’t begin to express how grateful we are to be involved with this fundraiser,” SBTS executive director Greg Williams said in a statement. “Thanks to Builders for Builders, last year we were able to put $40,000 back into the community through trail projects like Beckwourth Peak Trail and Mills Peak Trail.”

While the raffle winner will select their builder and bike — steel, titanium, or carbon fiber — ENVE and White Industries will deck out the final setup. Needless to say, it will make for one hell of a custom bike — definitely worth the $10 investment.
