THE bike: Project16

Like a child at Christmas everytime it happens. My new roadbike is almost finished, finished enough to be showed, finished enough to have been testridden and finished enough to make the wait for spring way too long…

Not as much colour as last year, not as many gears, not as high wheels, not as light. But the target was a faster, cleaner, simpler but made to go further and be more comfortable than the Allez. I love the future with disc brakes and after many thoughts and non understanding it felt like 1×11 drivetrain was the way to go for me when I live here in flat Stockholm.

As usual every bit on the bike has a thought behind. So let’s spread the joy and wait for spring 😀
