Welcome to the Pisgah Project!
Cane Creek Cycling Components, Industry Nine, Reeb Cycles, Thomson Bike, Maxxis tires, and Oskar Blues Brewery have teamed up with The Pisgah Conservancy to support their local forest system -- the Pisgah Ranger District of the Pisgah National Forest. The Pisgah Project is a one-off bike build with each component selected by the partnering companies. The Pisgah Project raffle bike is capable of handling anything Pisgah can throw at it. And there is only one way to win it...enter the drawing at the bottom of the page and be the lucky person drawn!
