Holiday Opening Times // Shop closed 24.12.2021 – 03.01.2022

As another crazy year comes to an end we will take the days between the holidays off to charge our batteries and enjoy the time with our families. Once again we thank you for your support and wish you some peaceful days!

The shop will be closed from 24.12.2021 to 03.01.2021. Last day to shop in store will be the 23.12.2021. Our onlineshop will keep sending stuff out to you as long the shiping companies come by and collect the packages. But please be patient as in the days before / between holidays they take longer than usual to deliver.

Surly Ogre No. 2

As said before it was two Ogre bikes we build for Gaby and wife (sorry forgot your name!) for the next big tour. Gaby and his wife came the long way from Netherlands to entrust us building new adventure travel bikes for them! No suprise, the 2nd bike is pretty close to Gabys bike: Surly Ogre, Shimano XT 1×12 drivetrain, Erase MTB rear hub and SON 28 dynamo laced to Syntace alumnium rims and Jones handlebar for multiple hand position on long tours. To stay visible they got a full SON light setup and for charging USB devices we added a steerer mounted Sinewave Reactor. Surly racks front and rear make sure they can haul everything they need on tour.

Curve Cycling GMX+ for Dennis

This one was a premiere for us as well. Dennis was thinking about the ultimative bikepacking rig and together we planned this ultimative titanium Overlander! Based on the more than capable Curve Cycling GMX+ frameset we build this dream bike with @SRAM AXS Red/Eagle Mullet drivetrain, Rotor Kapic crankset, Chris King Bourbon rear and SON 28 dynamo front hub laced to unbreakable DT HX531 rims, Teravail  Coronado 29×2.8″ tyres, Ritchey WCS VentureMax XL handlebar and Brooks Cambium carved All Weather saddle. A lot of mounting points on frame and fork allow Dennis to be abroad for a while and that’s what he is planning to do with his new bike! Get in touch if you have similar ideas!

New opening times from 22.6

Most of you know we are on staff shortage for a while now and it getting harder to offer you the best service possible. For that reason we decided to shorten our daily opening times to 15 to 20 o’clock for now. Before that it will be only possible to come by with appointment made upfront. Its drastic, but as it helps us to keep our focus its the only way we can keep up with our standards and get back to you in time on all requests and needs.

If you are gravel and bikepacking enthusiast looking for a new challenge as full time mechanic, shop manager or in sales get in contact via mail. The official job offer will be released soon.

REOPENING on 09.06.2021

Due the positive tendencies in latest Corona numbers its allowed to go shoping in Berlin without test from today. We still need some time to finalize all last preparations for you and decided to open up the  shop from 9.6. So from next Wednesday you can come by again and say hello and browse the shop! Please be aware we only have a small shop and can only leave one person (please still keep your distance and wear your FFP2 mask) into the shop at the time, so there might be some waiting time until we can take care of you. So if you are looking for a bike it might be still a better choice to get in contact via mail to get an appointment upfront. If you know what you want  you can still order online for self pickup in the store.

We cant wait to see you all again!
