    • The Do’s and Don’ts of a 3 Day Cycling Weekend in Central Europe

      I’ll be honest, this summer wasn’t great here in Central Europe. It was a pathetic letdown. Rainy days and chilly temperatures aren’t the best for cycling. With winter right around the corner, my panties were still wet for some gnarly rides. Luckily, when mid-October rolled around a colleague informed me “Feiertag nächsten Montag!”. I nervously checked the weather website thing and BOOM! ...3 days sun. PARTY ON! (...)

    • Bikepacking with Restrap Bags

      "So, do they pass the cup of tea test?". It's a question we've asked ourselves more than once when deciding on brands for the store. In many ways, taking those first few steps with a new partner isn't so much about the product, but the person or persons behind it.

      As the London Six Day comes to an end, the story of the week was how close the young British riders came to upsetting the professional apple cart. The pairing of Germaine Burton and Mark Stewart were strong enough to take a few races during the week, but whilst they had the speed to match the Euro-mafia in a one-off race, they lacked the strength and experience to challenge over the course of the event. (...)

      Lookbooks, hah! We could just as easily say 'nice images that make you feel like riding'. In fact, we may even call them cookbooks on occasion, because that's exactly what our spell-check keeps trying to do. Computers know best of course, which is why whilst writing this, the office hoover-robot is trying to make the special-time with some discarded bubble wrap, and the filing cabinet is smoking a cigarette.  (...)
