Survival

Lately I’ve been back to early bird commuting on a regular basis. I usually hit the road at around 8.30, still a bit sleepy but happy that my day starts with coffee and cycling. It takes me about 25 minutes to reach my destination and my way leads me through the inner city, passing the ...

Grand Theft Bike

Winter weekends can suck hard if you love cycling. Sometimes they rule though, like last sunday when it was sunny and just warm enough to take a little leisurely ride, hang outside for a bit and have good coffee at your favorite spots. And that’s just what we at Disridehere did. It seemed like everyone ...

By All Means

Urban singlespeed owners are a special breed. They often meticulously assemble their rides and pride themselves in picking the parts for their bikes with special care. It usually starts with the frame: The heart and soul of their inner vision. It might be a somewhat old schoolish steel frame that was usually build for a totally different kind ...

Bike Snuff

If you’re living in an urban environment and feel somewhat attracted to bicycles you’ve probably seen your fair share of mistreated or untended rides. Personally I sway between disgust and inspiration every time I pass a crappy bike, I might even feel a bit sorry for it. However, the state a bike is in can ...

Ancient

Something strange is goin on in this city. I don’t know if it’s a new underground scene on the rise or just pure coincidence cause I’ve seen this before but thought it was a once in a lifetime situation. Or maybe it’s the time of the year where all of them shiny pimped up fixed ...

True Colors

Let’s talk style for a minute. Generally I believe that style is a very personal matter yet it’s a form of communication and affects your surroundings whether you like it or not. I also blieve that in 2014 it’s ok to feel a bit haunted by people flashing their style at you, most commonly through ...

Klein

I like to be believe I’m a loyal person. Like with pretty much everyone else this first and foremost applies to family and friends of course but it can be extended to a lot of other things like your favourite bands or artists or even bike brands for that matter. The thing is that all ...

Y

Quick quiz: Which letter of the alphabet never asked to be transformed into bicycle geometry data? If you – despite the small hint in the title – struggle to find the answer please keep reading. Anyway, I think there’s a Y-Bike (got it?) for every single type of city cyclist out there. Like the Italian vintage ...

Eccentric

I moved into a new neighborhood almost a year ago so I’m about to come full circle with my settling-in phase. I really like how this area offers a nice range of day to day bikes, the intersection right in front of my door carries hundreds of cyclists every day yet it’s not too crowdy ...

Parking Lot Find

Let’s get down to some hardcore swag bike voyeurism. Found this beauty leaning against a shopping cart hut: Inconspicuous at first sight but taking a closer look you realize someone put meticulous work into this 26” urban speed machine. Where do I even start? This ride has so many great features. You gotta love freewheel ...
