early Christmas present

The project has taken a major hurdle. The bike is here … yes, it is actually in my hands right now. It’s kind of hard to believe after all the back and forth that the manufacturer of the frame has put us through. Us is the good people at the bike shop - Speedzone - with a little help from myself. I owe Dieter and Dirk a major thank you for all the work they have put into this project. From reading about the trip in a newspaper article, giving me a call telling me that they would like to lend support and going through the process of choosing the components and finally assembling it.So, here it is:

icy world - 001

In case you’re wondering whether it is truly this cold here at the moment … hm … yes! Just kidding, really. The timber is being sprayed with water and with temperatures below freezing, the water forms wondrous ice formations. Pedaling back from the bike store I came across this place and couldn’t resist. There’ll be more pics in the future … but for the time being, suffice it to say that my first impression is one of joy and fun. The bike promises to be a good companion thanks to the good folks at Speedzone
