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!)

Moots Routt 45

After our recent Meet Moots happening its time to show what we have available on display in our shop. The titanium Moots Routt 45 is for sure one of the most versatile and fun to ride bikes we had in our shop. The Routt 45 is a gravel and adventure machine made in US with seamless 3/25 titanium and is available in 7 sizes or custom geometry. This complete build comes with Shimano Ultegra Di2, Mavic Yksion Elite UST wheelset, Chris King i7 headset, Moots seatpost and stem and Fizik Aliante stem. Our complete bike has the optional Stanley finish – a multi-fade anodizing process thats very unique and looks beyond awesome. Get in contact if you interested in a custom or complete build Moots!

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.

Brother Cycles Kepler Disc – Gunnar

Another custom painted Brother Cycles Kepler we made a while ago for Gunnar. All classy with silver parts. Wheels made with Hope Tech Pro 4 hub rear and Shutter dynamo hub front laced to shiny H+SON Archetype rims. The drivetrain is a SRAM Apex group with hydraulic brakes. 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.

Surly Disc Trucker – Steve

Travel ready Surly Disc Trucker we made for Steve a while ago. Rolling on H+SON Archetype rims with 45c WTB Riddler tyres. The SRAM GX drivetrain combined with Rival shifters makes sure he gets up everywhere he want even with heavy load. The braking is done by Juin Tech semi hydraulic brakes. Seatpost and cockpit are finest Thomson parts and we choose a Ritchey Venture Max for upright and ergonomic seating position. A Chris King headset looks just nice in the frame. The front Rack is a Surly nice rack for heavy front loads.
