So what’s going on in the bike world?

The ECMC 2016 just ended in Copenhagen. Our Niklas Barklund got a 9th position and we wish him the best inWCMC in Paris quite soon. Happy to see a lot of girls from Stockholm too. The famous group Cats Sthlm was represented and a new group ladies Cats Göteborg just started.

 

The famous Sveriges Tempo has reached  international status as a 3 persons team joined and The Radavist plus Ertzui Films followed them trough the whole ride. Erik Nohlin (originally swedish but living in SF, USA and working for Specialized) teamed up with an american girl and another swedish guy. To read the whole story head to The Radavist. Maybe you get inspiration for next year competition!

Tour de France. You followed on TV so i don’t need to say much just that for 5 years in a row the winner is riding Chris King R45 hub on his bike. Hint.

The Transcontinental Race see a very well known Stockholm profile in the bike world Max and his friend Adam are doing it, quite impressive i would say! if you want to follow their ride you can follow them on the Transcontinental web page. They use a tracker rental but you can also follow them on instagram their tag is #TSRNo4P211 #tsrno4p211 i don’t think capitals matter but just in case.

No pick up in Hammarbyhöjden for a while!

So for a while you will not be able to pick up i am sorry. But it has been difficult for me to make it work now when i am in school all day as when i come back i have a lot of things to do (like orders, invoices and such) and i work on weekends in a shop in Södermalm so yes i do have only 24 hours so it doesn’t work anymore. If there is something that you really need to see and try on you can reach me vis info@bavabici.com and we will try to find a time to book that fits both you and me. Sorry about this but as i said it doesn’t work right now. I hope it’s not a big problem for anybody.

2016

2016 started with me leaving for Portland again. This time it wasn’t about bikes. I did my internship in woodworking but of course i rode bikes too. And i visited Chris King and PDW of course. And i had fun. A lot of fun! But now i am here again! and after an article about Bavabici in Bicycling USA march issue today Bicycling Sweden was here to take pictures and make a reportage,

What would you like to see in the webshop? do you miss something?shall i concentrate about keeping more stock of few brands? spring will be here soon and all i want is to go camping with my bike! watch out for more Porcelain Rocket in the webshop.

Time fly and soon is …

Xmas time! i know what you are thinking: “oh come on it’s far away” well you know how fast it goes and what about trying to keep those promises you made last year about NOT doing presents at the last minute? you can still buy a lot of sales item, some of them perfect Xmas presents. Check the SALE category and the SUPER SALE category to find many surprises for the bike nerd near you (or yourself). The website looks a little bit different now that’s why the sales are still on. I want to concentrate on the brands that you find only at Bavabici and to be able to keep a bigger stock of those brands i had to cut down on other brands but you can still find them in other shops in Stockholm. I just want to be able to offer a bigger image of the brands that i carry and support.

So check the new category system and let me know if you have any questions or ideas.

As many knows already i have decided to go back to school this year so i study Fine Woodworking at Sankt Eriks Gymnasium right now, full-time. This means a little bit less time for Bavabici but it doesn’t mean i am closing or anything like that. I will though be away for different reasons now and then. My daughter that was helping me before is now living in Denmark so when i am out of town the shop is closed.

Next week 20/11 to 29/11 there will be no pick up or shipping and all Xmas orders must come in before the 18th of december after that i will not be able to ship until beginning of 2016.

Then i will be in Portland doing my internship for school. And one of the place i will be as an intern is the amazing Sykkes Wood Fenders in Portland, i’m so excited! So 18/12 to 06/01 there will be no shipping or pick up, after that i will have an assistent to ship until i come back in february. I will still be able to answer all emails so don’t hesitate to contact me, bike related questions are still my priority!
