2012 29er Cannondale Flash 3 review

No Comments 01 August 2013

Except for riding our bikes, cursing this country’s climate and having an (occasional) beer 29rs were one of the other reoccurring topics during the last 24 months. Some have been diehard fans already for years riding their Gary Fishers and Niners, if possible single speed, others are calling it blaspheme and a marketing scam. Here at […]

1 Comment 18 April 2012

After some nice riding on Saturday in the Rochefort area we went to see the real pros on Sunday in Houffalize for round 2 of the World Cup XCO. The new track built by the organization is simply spectacular although a bit confusing for spectators at times,  even without the “on course” obligatory Belgian beers. […]

Finale Ligure (ITA) – Colla di Magnone

No Comments 31 March 2012

Starting off from Finale along the Rio la Fiumata towards Vezzi with a nice warmup on the road.  The blue mtb trail (indicated 2 red dots) towards San Lorenzino is currently inaccessible due to rocks blocking the path – other option is of course hike a bike for a km. Instead I continued towards Portio […]

Preparing ourselves for the Grand Raid Verbier on the 20th of August this is the first in a series of posts.

Mind you we didn’t get the rewards that easily, a […]

Schwalbe Ultremo Test

No Comments 14 June 2011

After all these years of road cycling and mountain-biking you start to believe in “certainties” if it comes to bike equipment and components. Mavic wheels are the best price/quality buy, Formula disc brakes are always reliable and Schwalbe rubbers protect you against all obstacles on your journey. However the world is constantly evolving and so […]

Helsinki Commuting – Monday advice

5 Comments 09 May 2011

People seem to invest in better bikes, they are creative in tuning their old ones and they are going for weekend rides outside of the city. This year only seems to confirm the trend so fare. However, with […]

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.
