Tumbleweed Prospector – Sascha

It was a pleasure to build Saschas Tumbleweed Prospector. The wheels were made with Rohloff hub and SON dynamo in front laced to Newmen EG.35 rims that withstand everything you throw at them.

Brother Cycles Mehteh – Julius

We wish everyone a happy new year and start the new year with a bike from last years archive. One of the last Brother Cycles Mehteh builds inold colourway was build with Brother steel gravel fork for use with Pelago Commuter front rack. Julius wanted a highly versatile rig with a focus on reliable parts. That why we choose Gevenalle 1×12 shifters combined with SRAM GX Eagle rear derailleur for this one. Semi hydraulic Juin Tech brakes deliver stopage power in every situation. Wheels where build 27,5“ for more comfort and offroad capability: SON dynamo front and Erase MTB hub rear laced to Halo Vapour rims make it a light but unbeatable wheelset, while Teravail cannoball tyres deliver comfort and grip. Low drop and flared Ritchey Venture Max handlebar for control in every situation.
