Bicycle and Gear Reviews, Our biker lives

Love, sheep.

2 Comments 19 July 2011

Cycling on snow is done for the year and I’m already thinking about the next tour, but I’ll continue with a number of posts that (god willing and a fast infield) will be of help to the first-time tourer and beginner-type cyclist such as myself. Wool. Wool fabric, and more specifically, merino (as in soft) […]

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 […]

Quick Preview: 2011 Merida Scultura Evo 905 road bike

2 Comments 01 June 2011

As everyone remembers, we were invited to test out the new 2011 Merida range last fall and I fell in love with the quality and stiffness of the bikes. Especially I enjoyed the carbon frame they have for their road bikes and even though I couldn’t afford a Reacto frame (yet), I finally managed to […]

8 Comments 09 November 2010

Just look at the gargantuan name of the lamp. It’s amazing. Anyway, I finally got my “Chinese wonder” lamp from DealExtreme, which allows me to see during the dark night rides (and soon dark morning rides as well) here in Finland. This particular LED bike light has been in high regards in the Finnish bike […]

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.
