Donnelly to Donate Proceeds to Amy D. Foundation

Donnelly Cycling will be donating a portion of all proceeds from the sales of their all-new C//C cyclocross bikes and frames in the Amy D. blue colorway to the Amy D. Foundation. These funds will be gifted to the Foundation established in the namesake of Amy Alison Dombroski.

The Foundation – whose mission is to encourage and support young women through cycling – was established in 2013 by Dan Dombroski, following the tragic death of his sister, pro cyclocross racer known to many as Amy D (Dombroski). The tattoo of a lightning bolt Amy bore on her wrist in memory of her mother was incorporated into the Foundation’s logo along with its signature light blue color. When Donnelly Cycling owner, Donn Kellogg, was selecting colors for his new cyclocross frames, it only made sense that one of these colors be Amy D. blue.

Kellogg has been involved with the Amy D. Foundation from its beginnings, serving on the advisory board during the first year in 2014. The Foundation’s first goal was to establish a developmental launch pad for one female rider with aspirations to become an elite level cyclocross racer. It was Kellogg, along with his cyclocross team and mechanics, who provided this up and coming rider with the professional support the Foundation needed during its first two seasons. Erica Zeveta, in 2014 and then Rebecca Farhinger in 2015, trained and traveled with the team, which helped their rapid improvement. This year, the Amy D. Cyclocross program will support two well-deserving racers, Emily Shields and Katherine (KK) Santos, who will compete aboard Donnelly C//C cyclocross framesets, in Amy D. blue, of course.

“I am truly committed to the support and growth of women’s cyclocross,” said Donn Kellogg. “Being a part of the Amy D. Foundation from the beginning is a great honor for me. When we made the decision to build our own cyclocross bicycles, it was done with the very real ambition to give back to the sport, so it was only natural to come up with a creative way to support the Amy D. Foundation. We are incredibly proud to be a small part of this wonderful program.”

“Having Donnelly and Donn Kellogg back and directly involved with the cyclocross program is very satisfying and rewarding,” said Dan Dombroski. “Donn was very instrumental at the start of the Amy D. Foundation. His company assisted with the trademark legalities and documentation for the Foundation, while his team embraced the first selected riders as one of the team. It was huge help for everyone involved, so we are quite excited to have Donnelly be involved again.”

Donnelly’s Amy D Blue C//C complete bicycles and framesets are available through select independent bicycle dealers and the Donnelly Cycling website.

(Christoph Bayer) SRAM AXS – 13 Good Reasons Why Electronic Components on Bikes Are the Future | The Slow Death of ‘Buy It For Life’

We see the bike media et. al. falling over themselves to encourage a public dependence on component electronics. And both ebikes and component electronics have an intrinsic designed obsolescence, by virtue of these systems having a limited number of battery cycles. There won’t be ‘vintage’ drivetrains in 20 years as none of the batteries will be usable. I have a birthday coming up, maybe I’m being overly nostalgic to consider this.
