new Tune saddle and QR

RE4MER is the latest saddle from the German company

62,5mm high so a high saddle with a width of almost 130mm. But even with that height it is really light at 79g. The leather you see in white here is alcantara and in regular Tune style available in different colours:

The more cool thing is the new QR they come with after Eurobike. As for now when everyone using thru axles where you either have to use a allen key to loosen or turn around for a while to get it out it’s a bit time consuming. Suntour got a faster system but hasn’t come on anything else and Suntour isn’t that usual.

Tune and Winora/Haibike developed the QC system. A nonthreaded fork/frame where you mount a small end in to work with a special QR. Fast and stiff.

Watch this video and you will understand:

Why shave weight of your bike?

If you wonder why to shave weight of your bike, there is a great article about it here: Peloton

A light and stiff bike with great fit will always be fast, like my Cannondale SuperSIX Evo I had at just 5,65kg:

Which light bike is the best you’ve ridden?

french, swedish, german

Found a really nice french bike a couple of days ago. Earlier I have been dreaming of a Time VXRS World Star Ulteam but now I found an alternative. Time Vibraser, look at this french made beauty:

Classic, clean tubes and a thin straight fork. No matter how modern and well designed a frame is I always dream of a classic bike like this.

A bit more modern and from Sweden comes the beautiful Rolo here built right except for groupset:

5,9kg, 14250€, Roues Rar 38mm wheels, Tune, AX-Lightness, Extralite and so on 🙂 Just missed the Super Record group 😉 Some of you maybe think this is just a showbike and not made for riding. But it’s built for riding:

Look at that. I had a thought of buying a Specialized Allez Comp Race in black with white logos, use a white saddle and bar tape and keep it original. That would be pretty expensive so I got a frameset and some parts as I already had some laying around.

Love this matching with wirehousing and frame logo:

A lot of carbon to be an alu bike 😉

Some small adjustments and a new seatpost before it’s finished. Cheapest roadbike for a long time 🙂

Ronde van Nøtterøy

Blue sky and sunny autumn. Perfect for a nice ride on some new roads on Nøtterøy, rode all over the island 😉

Autumn on the cycling paths so great with CX tires today:

Found the way to the sea too

Really nice ride in easy pace. Changed for my Sram XX1 crankset with a 38t chainring today so no chaindrops or problems, just to ride 🙂

And with a swedish view:

around 9° Celsius and sunny was really nice to ride in, perfect autumn day. Perfect last ride in Norway too just enjoying the creation 🙂
