Bike history: Corratec X-Vert

0 Comments 01 July 2010

Ha, I just bumped into a photo of my last mountain bike which actually involves many nice stories – the best being, that it was the deal maker when selling the apartment the bike is in that photo. The dude who was buying the house didn’t argue with my asking price as long as “the bike came with the house”.

If I remember correctly, it had mostly Shimano Deore/XT and XXYZX parts, was quite a light frame (to me) and nice to ride. In a way it was good to get rid of it, since the apartment was in a different country and moving in itself sucks so the less stuff the better, eh?

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.
