Surly Straggler Max

We hope you all had a wonderful start into 2020 and are excited as we are about the year to come. For now we start the year with this Surly Straggler complete build we made a while ago for Max. The nice and durable wheelset was build with Hope Tech Pro 4 hubs and the well proven H+Son Hydra rims. Panaracer Gravelking tyres keep you rolling, no matter what terrain. A full SRAM Rival groupset with hydraulic disc brakes is also a good choice, as the Hope headset and the Thomson parts are too!

Team Rider Raphael

We proudly announce our first team rider. 6 months ago, @cyclingrapha went in our shop and told us his participation on the second edition of the @silkroadmountainrace. He hadn´t had a lot of experiences so far and just scratched from the Italy Divide, which was his first ultra distance race. Over time a great friendship arose and we are more than happy to help @cyclingrapha not only with mechanical issues but also talk about his set ups for the races. He is a great adventures and cycled through Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Belize and Guatemala in 2019. Not to mention his finish at the @silkroadmountainrace as 28th of 145 participants. His next race will be @atlasmountainrace in February 2020. Also, we are planning some new projects with him in 2020. Stay tuned.
