winter is coming at us with big steps, the grocery stores have stocked up all the christmas sweets, we switched the clock back to winter time, the temperature dropped to one digit numbers...
this means we all have to prepare our bikes, add fenders, lights, bigger tyres...
after cycling through the winter for the last two years I decided to build up a dedicated bike for winter riding, with fenders, dyno hub, lights, cross-tyres
but I also want to use this bike for touring and a little offroad riding.
after searching the web for an appropriate and versatile web I finally came across this wonderful frameset from SINGULAR. it arrived yesterday an I can't wait to build it up.

check out the frameset below, I'll keep you posted on the next steps of the build.


last weekend was the 2010 version of the cologne courier championships.
last year's winner Anja organised the race and it was so much fun! the race started at Bike Syndikat after a nice breakfast and the first beers and cidres. first checkpoint was Edu's Veloküche in Ehrenfeld, from there on racers hadt to go to 16 checkpoints throughout the city, you can find the route I took below.
congratulations to kai and düse who finished 1st and 2nd, I came in 3rd.
kai just returned from the CMWC in Guatemala. he cycled all the way from new york to guatemala with his bike with a double fixed flip flop hub. thats over 3000km! respect!
