Commuting: Fix those flats!

1 Comment 21 August 2010

I was inspired to write this article because I had two flat tyres in three days this week. Getting a flat is eventual and it’s nothing to be afraid of. Once you have these two items with you, you are ready for every circumstance. A bicycle pump (like the one we spoke about yesterday) A […]

The pump is one of the tools for your bicycle that is like salt, when a food is seasoned well, you like the food, but if it is missing salt – you notice it very clearly. There are several types of pumps, but they all pretty much have the same functionality: A handle that pumps […]

Second week of riding to work after a looong summer holiday. My plan was to rest during the weekend, but while building my Ultimate Commuter we were missing a few parts so I had to take my bike and ride to the local bike shop to pick up those parts. So, I was left with […]

We look at the rolling side of the Ultimate Commuter - the wheels. Hubs, spokes, rims and tyres. Sometimes they break, and that happened to me as well on the third day of riding them.

Commuting: Pay it forward

4 Comments 14 August 2010

Riding on the commuting saddle has been very nice this week, the weather has been good and the wheels have been rolling. I notice the effects in my legs, especially the thighs and some nights I’ve been coming home too late to rest properly between rides. Still, I’ve taken it easy in the beginning, as […]

Fixies + Hipsters + Helsinki = Music Video

3 Comments 13 August 2010

If you thought that Finland is so desolate and full of polar bears that we had been spared from the invasion of hipsters and their brakeless fixed gear bicycles, you are wrong. When you ride down the streets, there is so much flannel, mustache and tight jeans that you’d think you are in the really […]

Commute like there’s a tomorrow

The summer holiday is over, and we’re back to our daily routines with commuting. We had the storm of the century here on Sunday, so it was still a bit wet on Monday, but it still felt good. I’ve never been good at going from place A to place A, I think I’m a commuter […]

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.
