So now i am back and Christmas is soon. I am making a list of suggestions that will be online soon and i also offer free shipping until the 20th of december. You always have 14 days when you order online to return or change your orders but for Christmas we will postpone that so you get 30 days free return.We offer also ready to give presents. Just write a note when you order and we will make a nice package that you can give away or put under the Christmas tree. You have some days left don’t wait until the last minute! of course you can come and pick up as always but you need to book as i will be very busy going to post office and such!
So the big day arrived and Jocelyn from PDW came to pick me up in the worst rain ever. With a car full of stash, 2 bikes and 3 girls we headed down to the Oregon Dunes and the weather got worst all the time.
Once at the campground we joined a bunch of rad ladies and dudes and we started making ourselves comfortable in our yurts (wikipedia: A yurt is a portable, bent dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia as their home)
As we started drinking beer and the last people who were supposed to arrive arrived the weather got better and when Donnie Kolb from Velodirt suggested a night ride we just jumped on our fleet #fatbacksbikeak and a couple of #on-ones. With PDW Lars Rover on almost all bikes we could see quite well and the night ride was an experience that will stay with me for a long time!
The weather changed and we stayed on the Dunes for 3 more days, heading home monday to leave back the Fatbacks bike in Bends.
The ladies were amazing and i would like to thanks Jocelyn and Hazel from PDW for organizing this awesome trip. I finally met all these rad people i have been talking to since the Oregon Outback and made new friends.
Adam Newman from Dirt Rag was there and made a gallery online for Bicycle Times that you can see here.
My pictures are not as good but you can see them on facebook.com/bavabici
If you plan a trip there or you would just like to talk about fat bikes i will be happy to tell you more!
Six days left in Portland OR.
It’s not true, there are a lot o news i just forget to write here and keep updating Facebook and Instagram instaed. I apologize to all of you not giving a damn for social media.
Biggest news is Surly in da house. You can order all of the Surly range from Bavabici right now, i stock a little bit but i can order anything you need. I am also helping with some sponsor two amazing persons that will make the dream trip: 3,5 years around the world on two Surly bike, check their adventures here
At the moment i am in Portland and pick up ideas, ride bikes, meet people and collect energy for next year.
You can see a lot of pictures from the amazing bike world of Portland on my facebook and instagram if you are interested, i believe you do not need an account as mine it’s an open one.
Next weekend will take me to the Dunes Forest south of Portland for a 3-days fat bike ride. My first time on a fat bike so i am very excited.
CycleExif is Adam Leddin in Sidney Australia. He runs one of the coolest bikeblog out there. A friend of him Matt Leasegang, also australian) came to visit Sweden and ask me for an interview.
The result of the combination of these two people knowing each other and the visit of Matt in Sweden is readable here: welcome to Bavabici HQ
“Bavabici has redefined the idea of a bike shop and crafted a new concept of personalized bike builds by doing so in a bedroom/living room/kitchen.” that’s right!
Yes I know that was 2 weeks ago but i haven’t had time to update! But here i am. Eurobike was nice as always, lots of good friends old and new and lots of new products, all new for 2015!
For a picture update of all products (almost) click here
First news will drop here soon but first i want to be sure all papers are signed!
Yes boss it’s that time of the year again: Eurobike 2014 will take place in Friedrichschafen (not realy sure about spelling ..) in Germany 27-30 aug and of course Bavabici will be there checking up all news for you and she will keep you update but that means Bavabici will not be in town for a week and that means no pick up or visits in Hammarbyhöjden for a week. You can still order stuff online and my helper will send it to you but I won’t be as quick as i usually am. But you will get tons of pictures of bike stuff. See positive.
Unfortunately this podcast is in swedish only but if you understand swedish and like bikes and want to hear what Bavabici gör listen to Huskypodcast 49: Cykel!
The ECMC was a blast and it’s over. You can still buy the jersey, the official Cinelli cap and the t-shirt via bavabici or cash at Crosstown Herkulesgatan in Stockholm.
