TGJ / Big Forest Collab

Our shops anodizing feng shui expert Basti had a very special custom bike in mind for while. This year he could make his dream come true. Together with Konstantin from Big Forest bikes he planed on his very own custom frame according to his needs and wishes. In the end the frame came out as expected, a highly agile and comfortable long distance Gravel Bike with a lot of mounting options and some pretty and clever details. A good friend made the paintjob and the bike was build with Fyxation Sparta FCR full carbon fork, SON dyno hub front and Chris King hub rear laced to Stans Crest rims with 650b WTB Horizon tyres, SRAM Rival 1×11 groupset, Hope RX4 hydraulic disc calipers, aawesome Chris King headset and bottom bracket, Rotor crankset with elliptical chainring, lightweight Goldsprint Ultimate seatpost and stem and a Brooks Cambium All Weather Saddle.

Brother In The Wild Berlin – 31.8 -1.9.2019

We’re very excited to announce a new European Brother in the Wild date – this time partnering with the good guys at Brother Cycles

The event will be a 2 day ride and 1 night campout starting and finishing at the Gentle Jaunt shop in Friedrichhain, Berlin. The route will take you South East out of the city where the terrain consists mostly of fire roads, gravel trails and single-track that winds through a stunning forest landscape.

The ride will finish at a private campsite on the banks of the River Spree where you can swim and cool off after a day on the bike! That evening we’ll provide a BBQ dinner and some beers for you to enjoy as you kick back and relax around the campfire.

On the second day, after breakfast, you will embark on a new loop heading back into Berlin – including more of the region’s finest gravel tracks and quiet country roads. Those not wanting to ride today have the option of taking a local train back into the city.

The route will be approximately 70km each day on mostly gravel roads – we therefore recommend an off-road capable bike with 33c tyres or larger.

Tickets cost £35 per person and include the following:

– Entry to the ride including gpx files for the suggested routes

– A pitch at the campsite for 1 night on the 31st August

– A welcome beer at the campsite

– A BBQ dinner and breakfast at the campsite – meat and vegetarian options available

We will also host a launch party at the Gentle Jaunt shop on the Friday before the ride – come and make some final adjustments to your bike, have a beer and meet some other riders.

Surly Straggler – Veronica

One of our custom bike we made for Veronica recently. Based on a small Surly Straggler 650b frameset in awesome salmon colour we got some nice red details with a red Dia Compe headset, red Shutter Precision dynamo, red Hope Pro 4 rear hub and red SAPIM aluminium nipples laced to light and durable Halo Vapour rims. The build was completed with a SRAM Apex 1×11 drivetrain with hydraulic disc brakes, subtle no logo Goldsprint seatpost and stem, compact Cinelli Vai handlebar, WTB Horizon tyres (tubeless) and a Brooks Cambium All Weather saddle. For everyday use we added Velo Orange Zeppelin fenders, a Pelago Commuter front rack and B+M IQ-XS front light and a SON rear light. In the end the bike is as versatile as it is beautiful!

Velo Orange Piolet – Andreas

Andreas wanted a bikepacking bike capable of doing rough terrain without any problems. The beautiful Velo Orange Piolet seemed to be a natural choice. The double butted CroMo steel frame is a very capable, touring orientated frame with tons of eyelets for whatever you want to mount. The fork is triple butted for weight savings and comes with mount options for cages, racks etc. We build the bike with mostly existing parts from Andreas, a new SRAM NX 1x 11 groupset and a nice multi-postion Velo Orange Crazy bar!. The Maxxis IKON tyres are just perfect for bikepacking use (and the frame will allow up to 29 x 2,4 or 27,5″ x 3,0!)
