Since this autumn mostly contains of rain and damp weather. I decided to do some upgrades on the Singular Peregrine. It has been built as the basic Monster cross. 29" 2.0 Race kings, midge bars and no fenders. It´s been my all rounder for a couple of years. But now when the fat bike joined… Continue reading De-crossing the Monster cross.
I´m a cyclist. I love riding, even if it´s just 200 meters to buy some milk at the grocery store. But i´ve come to love building bikes more and more. I have put all my bikes together by myself (except the Pitch). Actually that's the only way i can afford to have quite a sweet… Continue reading The emptiness of a finished project.
Finally getting somewhere on the Mukluk project. The rims that i got from On-one wasn't drilled. But inspired by this youtube clip i decided to give it a shot. I save about 300 grams a rim and it looks way more cooler. I got the tip to use a step drill instead of a hole… Continue reading Fat bike update 3. (Getting shit done.)

The result is better than i could imagine. Now i'm just waiting for a single speed kit and chain tensioner from… Continue reading Single speed project, update.

... A glas of wine, an old crappy bike and some tools. I I've had this old GT in storage for a couple of years. Tonight i finally took it apart. The plan is to turn it to a single speed just for fun bike. I'll start with a new paint job. For me, time… Continue reading Some time all you need is…
