Bike

The two Patria frames were purchased at Zentralrad in Berlin Kreuzberg. They assisted us in choosing the right framework and components. We both enjoy handicraft work a lot and since our desires regarding the components were quite special, it was clear that we would assemble those bikes ourselves, starting with the wheels up to custom made mudguards. Although we decided relatively quickly on the components which should adorn the bikes, it still took us over 6 months until we finally managed to finish our individual tour bikes.

While selecting the components we focused mainly on robustness and function. Everything has to last for a very long time and over thousands of kilometers, not only riding on good roads and in good weather conditions…

Time and distance will show for how long the selected components will last. We will keep you up-to-date about any problems or failures… hopefully WE won’t fail. :)
