do architect    in berlin     ride triebwerk mach 3

Where are you from and where are you now?
I grew up in Münster, studied in Cologne and Barcelona, lived in San Francisco for a while and just moved to Berlin about three years ago. From what I can tell so far it's a very fun place to live during summertime, definitely not so great to spend your winters here.

What's your profession?
I'm an architect. I'm trying to build stuff.

What's your passion?
Ice-cream and pasta - preferably just eating, not making it.

What's special about your bike?
The Triebwerk Mach3 means a lot to me because it was given to me as a birthday present. I got it after my last road bike got wrecked during a crash. From the very first ride until now, this bike has been the perfect match for me. I had never pictured myself with a blue bike, but once I saw the frame I was completely hooked by its vibrant color. Whenever I look at it now, I'm falling in love with it all over again.


Tomorrow is the day for your favorite ride.
What does it look like?
Well, I'm kind of an early bird, so I'll probably get up at sunrise and head out for a ride along Highway 1 near Half Moon Bay. The road down south towards Santa Cruz is one of the most epic routes I've ever cycled - the perfect road for a breezy warm-weather joyride along the Pacific Coast.

do managing director & CTO    in berlin     ride erdgeschoss

Where are you from and where are you now?
I was born in a tiny village in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. After living in Barcelona and San Francisco for a few years I somehow ended up in Berlin three years ago.

What's your profession?
After finishing University I mainly worked in Software Engineering. Right now I am Managing Director & CTO of a small company located in the Bay Area and Berlin.

What's your passion?
Coffee, bikes and nerding out.

What's special about your bike?
I knew that I needed the Erdgeschoss already a long time before the 2nd edition was actually released. I asked Max to reserve two of them even before knowing what the bike will look like. Waiting for another year until I could ride this amazing shred machine felt like an eternity - but the wait was worth every second!


Tomorrow is the day for your favorite ride.
What does it look like?
It is a long and warm summer day. The bike is ready for a few days camping along the Via Claudia Augusta. Gorgeous mountain sceneries accompanied by beautiful vineyards and great food.

do consultant    in berlin     ride triebwerk mach 2

Where are you from and where are you now?
I am originally from Budapest and moved to Berlin in 2010.

What's your profession?
I work as a consultant with focus on future business models.

What's your passion?
I go through different phases but reading and cycling are constant. I do read a lot - I've got into the habit of reading one fiction and one non-fiction book parallel. I also love to research and buy books - which is kind of a hobby on its own. Some years ago I re-discovered Hungarian embroidery that I learned from my grandmother as a kid, I do that a lot in the winter. It is basically meditation, colours to escape the grey.

What's special about your bike?
I feel like this bike would not fit anyone else because it was so carefully put together for me. Every detail was carefully considered and chosen and it fits perfectly.


Tomorrow is the day for your favorite ride.
What does it look like?
It's with my boyfriend and a couple of friends who are not after PBs on that day so it is a casual tempo ride. My bike is super clean and the chain is brand new so it has that fresh hum. It's a car-free day in the summer. I'd choose rolling terrain maybe the Balaton Uplands in Hungary or Mallorca. We do a coffee stop mid-ride near the water, at a place that serves banana split but I don't overeat so I am basically flying on the rest of the ride.

do architect    in berlin     ride herr standert

Where are you from and where are you now?
Born and raised in Cologne, since 1977 in Berlin - with an exception of 5 years.

What's your profession?
Architect.

What's your passion?
Architecture, family, art, language, cooking and eating, drinking... and since a while my Instagram account where I tell stories about a wide range of buildings, parks, streets, water of Berlin.

What's special about your bike?
My bike is of an early series of Herr Standert, a single speed city-bike. Actually everything is special about it: it looks great (I could choose the colours, handlebar, brakes, saddle), it is super light, and on top of all, riding is more like flying! I like the 'ratio spindle' which allows a wonderful, smooth start with good speed after just a very short time.


Tomorrow is the day for your favorite ride.
What does it look like?
Of course this should be a flat, good asphalt track in beautiful nature.

do architect    in london     ride umlaufbahn

Where are you from and where are you now?
I'm originally from Kent, but now live in East London.

What's your profession?
Architect.

What's your passion?
Riding, collecting and getting nerdy with bikes. And death metal. Recently designed and had printed my team's kit, which was a great experience!

What's special about your bike?
I've got a Kreissage 2nd cut disc and an umlaufbahn track bike. I'm fussy about details (architect), so matched the decals on the Kreissage with some orange Chris King. My favourite parts on my Umlaufbahn are the hand-built wheels and the Aarn chainring. Both bikes are super fun to race and the geometry is spot on.


Tomorrow is the day for your favorite ride.
What does it look like?
Either a sunny ride out into the Essex lanes with my teammates ending in much needed coffee or a late night ride through London on track bikes ending with pizza. Either is great!
