  • Ruckus Composites Launches Frame Raffle, Proceeds To Benefit Female Cycling

    Talk about an awesome cause here! Read up more below, and be sure to purchase your raffle ticket for a chance to win a repaired frame from Ruckus.

    Ruckus Composites is a Portland Oregon based Carbon Fiber repair business, repairing thousands of bikes a year for customers, bike shops and frame manufacturers. Every so often a bike never gets picked up, and ends up in the dead pile. For several years we have been wondering what to do with these lost souls, this year we cracked the code. Working with local and national non profit organizations as well as grass roots cycling teams, Ruckus will repair and custom paint these bikes and raffle/auction them off to raise money and awareness for causes that we believe in. The proceeds from these frames will go directly to organizations in need, the bikes will go to the lucky winners of the raffles.

    The first two frames will be raffled in support of Presented By Let’s Race Bikes (PBLRB). PBLRB is a Oregon based project dedicated to supporting and enabling elite female cyclists to compete on a national level. They are breaking down the financial barriers associated with professional cycling by offering support to female athletes through crowd sourced initiatives. PBLRB has raised money to date with support from The Athletic and Sellwood Cycles in Portland OR. We are excited to work with them and proud to support their efforts in cycling.

    To enter the raffle, you can purchase tickets online here, the raffle will end on June 17th. We will announce the winners and total amount raised for PBLRB on that date. Tickets can be purchased for 25 dollars a piece, or buy 3 for 60 dollars. Tickets are tax deductible(?) and the money raised goes directly to supporting the wonderful and talented women of Presented By Let’s Race Bikes. All the details about the project can be found here.

  • Chrome Industires T-Shirt Design Challenge

    Got some artwork you’d like featured on some Chrome goods? Submit here here.


    More people live in cities than ever before, and many of them are taking their bikes to the city streets. Cyklar, bicicletas, and vélos are fun and inexpensive and they’re infiltrating asphalt cracks of cities across the world! For this challenge, create a t-shirt design inspired by the street, the bike, and the people of the urban biking movement. Take to the city streets. Visit bike hangouts. Research the history of urban cycling. Look at how bikes are reshaping your own city, from the social and economical impact to music, design, photography, and street art.

    Keep in mind Chrome believes in simple, honest design; stuff that works well on a bike and in the bar. Create a design with all sorts of urban bikers in mind — commuters, professional messengers, fixed-gear freestyle riders, and journeymen on cargo bikes. We’ll choose several designs from this challenge. We’ll sell one on Threadless and the rest exclusively in Chrome stores and online.

    The purpose of this challenge is to create a stand-alone design inspired by the theme, not a brand tee. Your design should not have brand names or logos on it.
