Saddle bag review: Topeak Aero Wedge Large

1 Comment 30 September 2010

In my previous setup I carried everything in a bright yellow dry bag divers usually use, and from that activity I have two of these water and air proof bags that traveled with me on the rack you see in the photo above. I use two bungee straps with hooks to keep everything in place […]

Commuting: A single day of wins and losses

No Comments 29 September 2010

Today was an interesting day of commuting. It started yesterday, when I got fed up with feeling too much effort from my cycling, and I decided to lift my saddle even more. 10mm higher, yet again and you wouldn’t believe the difference. It was like gliding on clouds. This was naturally also due to having […]

Video: Bike tricks African style

No Comments 28 September 2010

It’s not only the hipsters of Portland, the commuters of Copenhagen or the marathon riders of France who handle their bicycle masterfully. This currently anonymous rider from Abene, Senegal shows his skills of not actually going very far with his bicycle, but he follows the BMX flatland doctrine. Which reminds me, that I have to […]

Cold feet: Endura Neoprene road overshoes

No Comments 27 September 2010

According to (a quite boring) legend, galoshes were invented by an Englishman called Radley. The man suffered from rheumatism and wanted to keep his shoes dry, and back then people didn’t have too many pairs of shoes since mass fabrication wasn’t a trending topic at the time. In modern usage, galoshes are outer shoes worn […]

Roll across the Antarctic: Fortune Hanebrink

No Comments 26 September 2010

Say one day you get an idea: “I want to go across the Antarctic” and continue “.. with a bike.” Your mustache won’t keep you warm enough when your carbon fiber wheels are sinking in the slush while polar bears claw your spine out. So what do you take with you, what’s your pack of […]

There are six billion people on the planet and the internet has a page or four thousand for every single one of them. Luckily, quite a few of them are about bicycles and some of them are beyond wildest dreams of wild dreams. The first on our list is the extravagant Blacktrail BT-01, a German […]

Friday video: Hipsters of the world, unite!

1 Comment 24 September 2010

First of all, I really love when people talk with us in Facebook and Twitter. With some I speak quite often and they are kind enough to send us awesome links to stuff we wouldn’t otherwise find. Above, you can see one of those videos – which is really well done, and it’s full of […]

For dummies: How to build a bicycle

No Comments 23 September 2010

I have to say, I was so excited to build my first bicycle and our mission was to get it done as soon as possible – my enthusiasm took over and I hardly took any photos. Also, it was a dark night and even my fast lens couldn’t catch our doings in the dark. Luckily, […]

Commuting: What to wear?

5 Comments 22 September 2010

I’m a bit torn at the moment as there are two riders with two different needs in me. If I just would commute directly from home to work and back, there wouldn’t be an issue. I could wear whatever spandex loving dream I would want to and be done with it very quickly. However, I […]

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.
