I needed a new saddle for my Bullitt. The old one was made of plastic and because of the cracks in the deck I often got a wet butt from the rainwater that remained in the plastic foam for days on end. On the old Batavus I still have an old “Lepper” saddle that suits me well. I know a leatherContinue reading “new saddle”
Today is World Bicycle Day ! #June3WorldBicycleDay
Beautiful Vimeo-video !
Usually I use the open “bak” (container) …. But when I visit the busy city center, I use the aluminum box.
Why do I often forget to make photos of my velomobile? Is it because I’m always in my velomobile when I make photos of a beautiful coloured sky or cloud formation? Anyway; this is where I park my velomobile at work …. Our dog is almost 8 months old now and becoming a heavy-weightContinue reading “photos”

Rob had the same experience as I had with the jacket of my bicycle chain lock. But I put a quote of Rob in practice : never travel without Duct tape ! So now the paint on my Bullitt is protected by the Duct tape around the padlock and chain.
… and unfortunately the cables of brakes and hubgear on my Bullitt were frozen. So I decided to defrost them inside our livingroom. Luckily my wife didn’t protest 😉 Tomorrow I’ll try to spray some thin oil inside the cables to get it damp-resistant.
Danish Cargo Bike Championships 2011/ Svajerløbet 2011
OpenBikeWorks is developing a nice cargo-bike. It got my attention, because their aim is to build the bike without any welding needed ! Every average sucker (as I am) can drill holes and play with bolts and nuts, just no welding please because that requires craftsmanship gained in many years. I expect that “Do-It-Yourself” willContinue reading “interesting … DIY-cargo bike”
