Sour Bicycles Purle Haze Stephan

Because of his interest in electronics Stephan was very keen to get to know the new SRAM Red AXS groupset. Of course we did as well and planed this beautiful Sour Purple Haze with the RED AXS 1×11 groupset with matching hydraulic disc brakes. The bike was build with Fyxation FCR full carbon fork, DT Swiss 350 hubs, H+SON Hydra rims, WTB Exposure tyres with tubeless setup, ergonomic Ritchey handlebar and Brooks Cambium All Weather saddle.

Brother Cycles Kepler Disc – Stefan

Its a shame we havent introduced you to Stefans custom coloured Brother Cycles Kepler Disc yet, as it is a real beauty. It was build with custom wheels made with Hope Tech Pro 4 hub rear, SON 28 dynamo hub front, Sapim Race spokes and H+SON Hydra rims. The drivetrain is made of SHimano Ultegra and braking is done by reliable semi hydraulic Juin Tech brakes. These days you will see Pelago fenders and racks on the bike if you see Stefan around town.

Soma Wolverine X Rohloff – Michael

For Michael we build this City and Touring bike made with a Soma Fabrication Wolverine frame and a Fyxation Sparta Carbon fork for weight saving. The bike is driven by an Gates Carbon drive in combination with a reliable Rohloff Speedhub for best effiency and high mileage without thinking about it to much. The setup became somehow classic with a lot of silver parts. A SON 28 dynamo hub front, Halo Vapour rims with 650b WTB Horizon tyres for maximum comfort on every surface, Hope Tech disc brakes for stoping power in all conditions, Velo Orange fenders and a classy Gille Berthoud leather saddle make a perfect mix of parts!

Open Cycle Classic U.P. Remake

When Sandro came in for an overhaul for his beloved Open Cycle Classic U.P. we didnt know where the journey may lead us. It was sure that the framn had to get a new paint and Sandro had something special in mind. Together with Robert from Velociao they worked out this beautiful reminiscence to Martini Racing. In the meantime we build a new, lightweight wheelset with Acros XC hubs combined with tubeless ready Goldsprint Ultimate carbon rims with Sapim spokes mix. Smooth rolling Teravail tyres for lots of km. The drivetrain was upgraded with a perfectly matching Praxis Works Zayante Carbon with SRAM compatible direct mount. The SRAM Force brake setup was also upgraded with powerful and beautiful CNC machined Hope Technology RX.4 brake calipers.

Ritchey classic C220 stem and matching seatpot with Brooks Cambium saddle work very well with the classy look. Pelago fenders and stainless rear rack finish the build perfectly while Panaracer Pasela tyres keep the bike rolling wherever Gunnar wants.
