Bicycles with love: Pelago

1 Comment 21 July 2010

Biking has evolved quite a bit in the last ten years, it has gone from mainstream utilitarianism towards a more self-expressive direction. While bikes have in my opinion always been more than just objects or modes of transportation, they’ve lacked the certain mainstream flair and admiration like cars have for example. Finns have made their […]

Tour de France – 8 seconds but it’s all over

1 Comment 21 July 2010

After 19 race days and over 3000 kms the gap in the general classification (GC) between the numbers one (Contador) and two (A. Schleck) is 8secs. A margin as tight as the spandex on the skinny guys still in the peloton but somehow we think it’s all over already. The reason: a derailleur. While attacking […]

On a budget: Shimano SH-M063 SPD bicycle shoes

1 Comment 20 July 2010

We already spoke about shoes in our post about, well, biking with the right shoes – and this time we’re taking a look on budget biking shoes that connect to the clipless Shimano PD-M520 pedals we talked about yesterday: The entry-level Shimano SH-M063 shoes. The shoes themselves are very simple: They have a hard sole, […]

On a budget: Shimano PD-M520 clipless pedals

2 Comments 19 July 2010

If you’re not an avid biker, you probably might not know what a clipless pedal is. Even their name is a bit confusing, as it originally meant that “It is not a toe clip pedal, so it’s clipless” and people just continued calling it that. You might have spotted these small, funny looking pedals on […]

Commuting effects of the first two months

1 Comment 18 July 2010

True, I only started bike commuting only two months ago and the weather was terrible then and I didn’t have my trusty waterproof Chrome Soyuz to carry my stuff dry to work, but still, I feel it already. According to my Garmin Connect account, in the last two months, I have been: Riding my bike […]

Tour de Zombies: Biking can be dangerous

No Comments 17 July 2010

For those who think professional biking is similar to lawn bowling and polo, you’re wrong. Not only do these guys ride at speeds of 70+ kilometers per hour, they also FALL at the same velocity. They also drive in tight knit groups of people, so if one falls, more people will fall as well. Below […]

Ultimate Commuter: Custom Surly Cross Check

15 Comments 16 July 2010

UPDATE: The finished Ultimate Commuter is here. Finding the right bicycle for you can be really, really difficult. That’s if you’re looking for complete bikes, that is. I spent weeks searching and researching, and the last two days were even worse, spending more time on the computer than on the road while texting with my […]

ElasticShelf – Hold your bike books with style

No Comments 15 July 2010

Inhabitat is writing about an auction happening in eBay for some bookshelves made from bike tire tubes called “ElasticShelf”. They’re surprisingly elastic and they form a shelf, sure to bend your paperbacks to oblivion, but if you have extra tubes lying around and you really, really don’t have enough bike junk in the house already […]

Blogosphere: Busted Carbon

No Comments 15 July 2010

I just found myself browsing the contents of a very specific, yet utterly interesting blog called Busted Carbon. It’s a photo blog about broken carbon frames and other parts and the main message seems to be that you are not going to see steel or aluminum frames snap like this. Most of these images come […]

Commute easier: The right shoes

9 Comments 14 July 2010

The concept of moving forward of operating a bicycle is quite simple: You, as an engine, convert energy from your body into the bike by applying pressure to the pedals, which in turn turn the wheels because skip a few steps. If you’ve ever held a biking shoe in your hand or your feet, you’ve […]

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.
