Changing the frame in 4 minutes

1 Comment 11 August 2010

Last week we spent a quality day changing a frame on a cross-country (or XC for short) bicycle and we thought of recording it since it was a nice day and all. The donor was a 2008 GT Avalanche 1.0 that had done it’s job and we swapped most of the parts from it to […]

Bike building: Transmission, MTB or road 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.
