Stunt riding on a carbon Raleigh Avanti Race

0 Comments 29 June 2010

When Maarten sent this link, I surely wasn’t expecting this. I’ve always had the feeling, that the first pebble on the road would not only maim the driver, but also send the bike right back to carbon heaven – but I stand corrected, this changed my opinion about carbon frames and road bike durability.

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
