From the editor: What happened in July

No Comments 31 July 2010

This week I was supposed to write about me building my ultimate commuter, but as I just finished talking with the shop in Germany – they still don’t have my frame and it should arrive this week. I sure hope it does, since it’s my last holiday week next week and it would be nice […]

I think many people imagine bikes existing already in the middle ages, where Teutonic knights rode their trusty wooden bikes to battle with lances gleaming in the sun, but the modern bike is not much older than the automobile. Funnily, the modern bicycle hasn’t changed much from where it was a bit over a hundred […]

Commuting: 4 steps to hydration

2 Comments 27 July 2010

We have all been thirsty, some of us have even been really thirsty and the urge to drink is amazingly primal. Our species contains on average 57% of water, but it doesn’t make us camels. Still, dehydration seems to be something very distant for people, so instead of scientific approaches, I’ll let the simple English […]

Review: X-Tools Workshop Prep Stand

1 Comment 26 July 2010

Building or repairing a bicycle without a stand is very, very difficult if you have to do anything that requires two hands or you have to spin the wheels or pedals. As you might already know, I am a tall person (195 cm, something like 6’4″) and I don’t know anyone who likes to work […]

Bikes have always come in many forms and materials, but they started out from wood. Eventually lighter and more durable materials emerged, such as steel, titanium, aluminum and lately – carbon fiber.

Find your way – Creating bike routes

No Comments 22 July 2010

When you go jogging or walking, route planning for your average mortal person is quite easy since the lap usually won’t be larger than 15 kilometers, usually half of that.

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.
