Von Hof Cycles Announces Sponsorship Of Gran Fondo National Championship Series
Von Hof Cycles is pleased to announce it is the official bike sponsor of the 2017 Gran Fondo National Championship Series
HOBOKEN, NJ –– May, 2017–– Beginning with the Highlands Gran Fondo in Butler, NJ on June 4, GFNCS will raffle off a Von Hof steel road frame valued at $1,950. At each remaining GFNCS event, Von Hof will donate a steel road frame for the raffle.
“We’re excited to be a part of such an epic series,” says Von Hof co-owner Rich Hofbauer. “Our partnership with GFNCS aligns perfectly with our mission to make custom quality frames available to everyone who loves to ride as much as we do. The riders who take on the challenge of an GFNCS event will appreciate what Von Hof is all about. It will be great to kick off our sponsorship so close to home with the Highlands Gran Fondo.”
Von Hof sells small batch frames made by hand in the US with an eye on quality and detail normally reserved only for clients of custom builders. Von Hof’s road bike features oversized shaped steel tubes to create a fast, responsive, comfortable and lightweight ride. It also contains internal routing for Di2 electronic shifting, Columbus Spirit triple butted tubes, a tapered head tube, PF30 bottom bracket, and 28mm tire capacity. To go along with elite functionality, Von Hof recently partnered with the creative studio Franklyn to create gorgeous color schemes and logos on each bike frame. The result is a bike that looks as good as it rides.
“We’re very excited to have Von Hof Cycles join us as a series sponsor,” said Reuben Kline founder and president of the GFNCS. “Von Hof, just like GFNCS, is a true USA homegrown company and shares the kind of passion we have to provide a great ride experience.”
About Von Hof
Our focus is on great design, top of the line materials, exceptional customer service and American craftsmanship. Small batch manufacturing allows us to be highly selective about the quality of materials we use and the partners we work with to build our bicycles and soft goods. We don’t cut costs by manufacturing offshore or making bikes as cheaply as possible. But innovation doesn’t stop with our bikes; our small batch approach to manufacturing and inventory also sets us apart. We’re not bogged down by distribution chains, forced obsolescence of model years, sales gimmicks or real estate investments. We stock only what we need, which saves us and our customers money.
