<strong>2016</strong><br />

Diverse is probably the best<br />

word to sum up the <strong>2016</strong><br />

Bombtrack range. From the<br />

origins in fixed gear and single<br />

speed the new range takes the<br />

brand into road, touring and<br />

even adventure bike-packing.<br />

The thing, which connects all of<br />

these areas together, is actually<br />

the modern cycling enthusiast.<br />

For them there is a bike for every<br />

activity out there, but what if<br />

there was one bike that could do<br />

multiple tasks really well? We<br />

held this question in our minds<br />

when developing the new range,<br />

rather than bikes that were<br />

highly focused on one individual<br />

task, but on bikes that have a<br />

multitude of uses, bikes that fit<br />

into our daily lives.<br />


The Script has come along way<br />

since the original bike in 2012,<br />

but the concept for a clean<br />

and simple alloy track bike has<br />

remained the same. For this<br />

reason the tubing is kept simple<br />

but effective, thanks to the 7000<br />

series multi-butted aluminum<br />

which is light but very strong.<br />

Due to larger diameter head and<br />

down tubes, the frame is very<br />

stiff, ensuring all the power goes<br />

to the rear wheel and not lost<br />

flexing the frame. The tapered<br />

head tube and fork allow for<br />

a stiffer front end too, and the<br />

integrated headset ensures a<br />

super clean look at the same<br />

time. At the back of the frame<br />

the CNC machined dropouts<br />

are welded, and along with the<br />

other tubes, polished to leave a<br />

super smooth finish that really<br />

set the Script apart from the<br />

crowd.<br />

To make the most out of every<br />

ounce of energy put through<br />

the pedals, the Sram Omnium<br />

cranks are considered a<br />

benchmark in track cranksets.<br />

Script<br />


Made from 7005-T6 alloy and driving a 5mm thick 48t sprocket which<br />

is optimized for singlespeed chains. To put all this power down are the<br />

updated Drome wheels which run on high quality sealed bearings and<br />

now use a wider rim profile which is optimized for the 25c tires.

...a very stiff frame, and<br />

thanks to the inherent<br />

dampening properties<br />

of steel, also very<br />


From the moment the Needle<br />

was launched it caught the eye of<br />

track and criterium riders due to<br />

its steel, rather than alloy frame.<br />

The Reynolds 725 tube-set is<br />

double butted and heat-treated<br />

for a higher strength to weight<br />

ratio. This strength produces<br />

a very stiff frame, and thanks<br />

to the inherent dampening<br />

properties of steel, also very<br />

comfortable. This dampening<br />

characteristic means the frame<br />

is very compliant and stable<br />

through corners, and on rougher<br />

surfaces, which ultimately<br />

makes for a fast bike.<br />

The Needle frame has had a<br />

few significant updates for<br />

<strong>2016</strong>. Perhaps most noticeable<br />

is the sloping top tube, and<br />

the tapered head tube. These<br />

are designed for very different<br />

reasons, the tapered head tube<br />

works together with a tapered<br />

carbon fork for stiffer, and more<br />

direct handling. The sloping top<br />

tube is a result of reducing the<br />

seat tube length, which allows<br />

for a little extra riding comfort,<br />

Needle<br />


and gives the bike its distinctive silhouette. The dropouts have been<br />

updated too and are brazed into the rear stays for a cleaner, smoother<br />

look.<br />

The drive train of the Needle is the proven Sram Omnium 7050-T6<br />

alloy crankset and 48t sprocket which drives a 17t heat treated crmo<br />

rear cog. Each turn of the cranks transfers the drive<br />

through to our own Drome wheelset. The wheelset<br />

rolls on high quality sealed bearing hubs that are<br />

laced into a wider rim with 25c tires, for reduced<br />

rolling resistance and improved comfort.

On the 24th of July, our good friend<br />

Clement (Shovel) Stawicki lined up<br />

in Flanders with 200 other riders to<br />

set off on the 3rd annual Transcontinental<br />

race. This is a truly ‘epic’ race<br />

with riders trying heading unaided<br />

(as close to none-stop as possible) all<br />

the way to Istanbul. Clem survived<br />

the race finishing in an impressive<br />

14th position, a true testament to<br />

man and machine, his Bombtrack<br />

Audax.<br />

What did your preparation for the TCR involve?<br />

Clem prepares for the race<br />

start in Flanders<br />

Transcontinental<br />

with Clement Shovel<br />

My preparation started with my registration to compete in<br />

the race, i.e. about eight months before the start. It can be<br />

divided into three parts: 1. equipment, 2. routing, and 3.<br />

physical training. As for the first, I did a great deal of research<br />

online and gathered information from different forums<br />

and blogs. My equipment choices were largely inspired<br />

by tips and stories of other riders and travellers. The choice<br />

of bicycle was the easiest. To get prepared for the race route<br />

I studied the maps and used online route planning software.<br />

As to the physical training, I tried to ride to the limit on top<br />

of my usual rides and to do long distances (upwards of 300<br />

kilometres) without getting nauseous. In addition to cycling I<br />

also did some running, cardio workouts and muscle training,<br />

plus a good dental and medical check-up before I set off.<br />

Was it your first long distance endurance race<br />

ever?<br />

Yes, the TCR was the first kind of endurance race event I’ve<br />

tried, and its not put me off doing more like this. Maybe<br />

something off road next time could be fun.

How many starters were taking part? Can you<br />

describe the situation and relationship between<br />

the riders – was it rather competitive, friendly<br />

or both?<br />

There were about 160 solo participants and about fifty duos.<br />

People were generally really friendly. Although the language<br />

barrier was a challenge at times, there has always been a<br />

word of encouragement when we crossed paths. Some situations<br />

we experienced brought us closer together like the<br />

difference in altitude or the weather conditions.<br />

Please let us know more about the numbers:<br />

how many kilometres, how many meters of elevation,<br />

days of racing, average speed and such<br />

did you do?<br />

I don’t usually keep a record of these things, but according<br />

to what I was told, I cycled about 4,250 kilometres, climbed<br />

49,000 metres of elevation, and had an average speed of<br />

something like 24 km/h over a period of 13 days, which<br />

makes 326 km per day. But I prefer bicycles to maths.<br />

How many hours did you sleep on average per<br />

night, and how many hours did you sit on your<br />

bike per day?<br />

I organized my days around sunrise and sunset. I went to<br />

sleep at around 10 to 11 p.m. and got up between 4.30 to<br />

6 a.m. I slept about 6 hours per night on average, which left<br />

me around 18 hours for cycling. But the cycling efficiency<br />

varies with the weather and the physical condition. In order<br />

to reach the number of daily kilometres I had set myself, the<br />

length of the breaks I took varied too.<br />

You have crossed so many countries, reached<br />

so many different heights and the weather<br />

changed a lot too - how did you cope with these<br />

challenges as your bike did not really look fully<br />

packed?<br />

During my whole journey, I’ve spent about 12 hours cycling<br />

in the rain. But in the end, that’s not much. Rain is the hardest<br />

thing to handle when it comes to the equipment. Because<br />

once your equipment is wet, that’s when the trouble starts.<br />

For example, I had to ditch my battery charger, my batteries<br />

and my mobile phone charger because they got wet.<br />

Although the saddlebag, in which I kept these things, was<br />

waterproof, it still couldn’t withstand six hours of constant<br />

downpour in Croatia. So I had to come up with another<br />

solution as I went along. Luckily, my other bags delivered on<br />

their water-proofing promise, so I was able to keep at least<br />

my clothes and sleeping equipment dry.<br />

On this race, however, the sun and the extreme temperatures<br />

(max. 45° C) were kind of the main issues. I was lucky to be<br />

able to tolerate the heat relatively well, and good hydration<br />

helped me cope with the temperatures. Generally, when you<br />

don’t have much equipment, you need to figure out how to<br />

make do with the little you have. Thanks to the tent I was able<br />

to sleep through nights of wind and rain, while in dry nights<br />

I only used my sleeping bag.<br />

What equipment did you actually take along?<br />

For the trip, I packed a tent (weighing just under a kilo), a<br />

sleeping bag (10° C), a sleeping mat, a survival bag, a rain<br />

jacket, a high-visibility vest, a pair of knee warmers and<br />

arm warmers, a Merino wool hat, a pair of long Merino<br />

wool gloves, a high-quality functional undershirt with long<br />

sleeves, a jersey, two bib shorts, a first-aid bag, an emergency<br />

tool kit, four batteries, a GPS, maps and a roadbook.<br />

Does it differ from the equipment of other riders<br />

- or did you have any special item with you for<br />

a certain reason?<br />


I packed lightly, as did the average rider, while keeping the<br />

comfort of a tent. My packing list has been inspired by stories<br />

of the Trans Am and the Tour Divide. The only special item<br />

was a dynamo powered USB charger, which I had made<br />

myself. No unusual lucky charm or some such thing like that<br />

though.<br />

Where did you sleep?<br />

“I really like steel frame bikes, they are comfortable and<br />

reliable. I loved how the geometry of the Audax looked on<br />

paper, and it turned out to be just as expected.”<br />

I slept in the fields, in pastures, under a motorway interchange,<br />

next to an abandoned building in the middle of the<br />

city, by the roadside, and twice in a hotel. I’ve always tried<br />

to find myself a place that was safe and, well, “comfortable”.<br />

The two nights spent in a hotel allowed me to take a shower<br />

and dry my stuff.<br />

How many times did you eat a day, and what?<br />

I ate all the time, primarily chocolate or cereal bars. Petrol<br />

stations were my main source of food supplies. I had quite a<br />

few Viennese pastries in the first few countries (France, Italy,<br />

and Slovenia), picked fruit from the roadside and when I<br />

took some time to sit down to eat I had the occasional pizza<br />

or a burger—food that is easy to find, can be eaten quickly<br />

and has lots of calories. To stay hydrated I drank lots of lemonade<br />

and energy drinks, and in the hot countries up to 8<br />

litres of water a day. I refilled my bidon at cemeteries, at<br />

mountain springs, wells, and on food supply points. I haven’t<br />

had a single balanced meal during the entire journey.<br />

Did you encounter any dangerous situations<br />

during the race?<br />

The whole route is actually dangerous and there have been<br />

lots of accidents this year. For my part, I got hit by a lorry’s<br />

wing mirror at night on the D100 (a two lane road without<br />

cycle track or road shoulder) near Silivri about 100<br />

kilometres before the finish. The most dangerous situations,<br />

however, have been the dog attacks. I had quite a few, one<br />

of them in Greece, where seven dogs attacked me.<br />

Do hear anything of the other riders, of any<br />

crashes, injuries and such things?<br />

As I didn’t have a smartphone on me and no access to<br />

social media, I only learned about these things at the checkpoints<br />

and after the finish. One Czech rider, now a friend,<br />

crashed and had to change a wheel. Another one crashed<br />

twice within the final kilometre before the finish. Others<br />

were so weary of the constant dog attacks that they even<br />

tried to kill some of them— more or less successfully. There<br />

are plenty of such stories. I have great respect for those riders<br />

who managed to overcome a bad situation, then got on<br />

their bike again and finished the race, and I have a thought<br />

for those who had to quit prematurely.<br />

When we asked you if you’d be willing to ride<br />

our new AUDAX, what convinced you to ride it<br />

for this event?<br />

I really like steel frame bikes, they are comfortable and reliable.<br />

I loved how the geometry of the AUDAX looked on<br />

paper, and it turned out to be just as expected. I liked its<br />

neoclassical look and its shape as a whole. The bike fully

met my requirements for this sort of adventure and it’s been<br />

an honour for me to be the first to try out a new bike model<br />

and to take it on a trip across Europe.<br />

Did you make any changes or adjustments to the<br />

standard bike?<br />

I attached a Berthoud leather saddle, and installed a set of<br />

wheels with a hub dynamo so as to have an autonomous<br />

energy source. I attached lighting and extensions (aerobar).<br />

Finally, I replaced the Shimano STIs with some Genevalle<br />

shifters, as I found them more reliable and easier to fix and<br />

adjust in case of failure.<br />

“I’ve spent about 12 hours cycling in the rain<br />

...rain is the hardest thing to handle when it<br />

comes to the equipment, because once your<br />

equipment is wet, that’s when the trouble starts.”<br />

What will be your next target to be ridden, what<br />

are your near future plans?<br />

My next target is going to be the 3 Peaks in England, which I<br />

have participated in for the past four years. Apart from that,<br />

I’ve been thinking about doing some other long distance races—there<br />

are so many projects that I get excited about, like<br />

the Trans Am road race, but also off-road events such as the<br />

Tuscany Trail, the Highland Trail 550, the HLC in Israel as well<br />

as the Tour Divide. The most important thing for me, however,<br />

is to enjoy what I’m doing and to keep on having fun.<br />

The Arise is a genuine ‘Swiss<br />

Army Knife’ built with versatility<br />

in mind from the ground up.<br />

Keep it single speed or convert<br />

it with a full group-set like the<br />

Rad Pack did on their gravel<br />

Tour d’Iceland. Now in its third<br />

generation the Arise has been<br />

revised to further enhance<br />

that versatility. The updated<br />

geometry gives a better range<br />

of sizes, with top tube lengths<br />

getting a little shorter for a more<br />

comfortable reach. Thanks to<br />

a sliding dropout the chain<br />

stay lengths can be varied for<br />

different kinds of riding, a little<br />

longer for a more comfortable<br />

touring set up, or shorter for a<br />

more playful and nimble feel.<br />

The frame retains the 4130<br />

tubing and the front triangle is<br />

butted and heat-treated for a<br />

better strength to weight ratio.<br />

The option to convert the<br />

Arise into 1x or 2x gearing has<br />

been retained thanks to the<br />

removable cable guides and<br />

derailleur hanger. The new<br />

Tektro RX5 v-brakes use a short<br />

Arise<br />


pull system, to work better with STI shifters. Up front, the fork is<br />

now a little longer to further improve riding comfort and also with<br />

a longer trail for more stable handling. The fork blades now feature<br />

rack mounts, so setting up a low rider with panniers is easily done.<br />

There is also plenty of grip from the Continental ‘Cyclocross Speed’<br />

tires, which roll fast and smooth on the road,<br />

but still have excellent grip on dirt trails.

From a tough and dependable daily commuter<br />

through to a fast and capable gravel racer,...whatever<br />

the purpose in mind the Hook is ready and willing.

The Bombtrack Hook was<br />

launched in 2014 and although<br />

the original plan for the Hook<br />

was to simply be a well balanced<br />

steel CX bike, the scope of this<br />

bikes abilities came as a surprise<br />

even to the development team.<br />

With team rider Stefan (Fish)<br />

Vis successfully tackling the<br />

grueling Transalp mountain<br />

bike race, and earlier this year<br />

riding the Paris-Roubaix, it<br />

was clear for all the capabilities<br />

of this bike were beyond<br />

expectations.<br />

The beauty of social media has<br />

allowed us to closely follow how<br />

owners of our Hook bikes have<br />

gone on to put them to use in<br />

a whole host of diverse ways.<br />

From a tough and dependable<br />

daily commuter through to a<br />

fast and capable gravel racer, so<br />

it seems whatever the purpose<br />

in mind the Hook is ready and<br />

willing.<br />

Hook<br />


Hook 1<br />

...carrying over the proven geometry and frame<br />

design from last years‘ original Hook, but now in<br />

an even more versatile package<br />

At the core of the Hook 1 is the high<br />

quality Japanese Sanko crmo tubing<br />

built into the proven geometry<br />

of the original Hook frame. The<br />

front triangle is heat-treated which<br />

allows the tube walls to be thinner.<br />

The result is reduced weight but<br />

without compromising strength. The<br />

characteristic solid and stable feel of<br />

the frame comes from the geometry<br />

and larger diameter tubes that<br />

connect to the rear wheel through the<br />

BB30 hub shell. These larger diameter<br />

tubes are inherently stiffer and create<br />

a larger surface area for the welding,<br />

making for a stronger junction. The<br />

larger oval section chain stays allow<br />

for a stiffer connection to the rear<br />

axle, as well as providing more mud<br />

clearance around the tires.

The carbon fiber fork with tapered steerer tube<br />

helps to provide more direct handling as well as<br />

keeping the front-end weight down. The Sram<br />

Apex group set offers smooth and reliable shifting<br />

and with an 11-32 cassette and 50/34 chain rings<br />

the Hook 1 can handle any kind of terrain. The<br />

Mavic Crossride wheelset offers a very strong<br />

and reliable wheelset for the Hook. Thanks to<br />

the double seals used on the cartridge bearings<br />

and the rims having a reinforced spoke hole the<br />

wheels are smooth, fast and very durable. To<br />

make sure stopping is not a problem, the Hook<br />

1 uses the proven TRP Spyre disc calipers with a<br />

powerful dual action system that applies pressure<br />

to the disc from both sides rather than just one.<br />

Hook 2<br />

...winter road rides, the daily commute, weekend<br />

bike packing trips and of course a Cyclocross race<br />

are all within the remit of the Hook.<br />

The Hook 2 has evolved to be more<br />

versatile and really a ‘do it all’<br />

kind of bike. So winter road rides,<br />

the daily commute, weekend bike<br />

packing trips and of course a short<br />

intense Cyclocross race are all in the<br />

repertoire of the Hook.<br />

At the core of the bike is the Columbus<br />

Cromor steel frame, it provides a light,<br />

strong and a very compliant ride. A<br />

carbon fork with tapered steerer helps<br />

keep the weight down but provides<br />

a stiff and confident steering feel.<br />

Elsewhere on the frame, details like<br />

the cable routing being full enclosed<br />

down the rear stays, to keep mud out<br />

and therefore smoother shifts, adds<br />

to the Hooks’ durability. The front

and rear rack mounts mean this bike has<br />

more potential to be used as a long distance<br />

gravel grinder or bike-packing machine.<br />

The 1x11 Sram rival groupset offers enough<br />

range of gears for most rides, with the big<br />

advantages of less moving parts and less<br />

mud collecting around the front derailleur.<br />

DT Swiss wheels are renowned for being well<br />

engineered and incredibly durable. The R23<br />

spline wheelset is no exception to this with a<br />

stiff but lightweight design making them well<br />

suited to the Hooks’ multitude of activities.<br />

Hook 3<br />

The carbon fiber frame and fork are<br />

manufactured in a way that optimizes strength<br />

whilst also reducing weight<br />

The Hook 3 is built from the ground<br />

up to be fast and light. The full carbon<br />

fiber frame and fork is manufactured<br />

with a layup technique that allows<br />

more strength and stiffness to be<br />

created in certain areas. The full<br />

internal cable routing not only makes<br />

for a cleaner look, it actually helps<br />

to avoid mud build up which often<br />

occurs around the exposed cables<br />

and guides. The front and rear DT<br />

Swiss thru-axles add to the rigidity<br />

of the frame as well as providing a<br />

stronger wheel set up. Sliding over<br />

the axles are the DT Swiss R23 hubs,<br />

which use a spline flange system with<br />

straight pull spokes and a specific<br />

lacing for maximum stiffness. These<br />

are connected to the wide, tubeless

compatible rims with cold forged and butted<br />

spokes for the stronger wheel build.<br />

The Sram Force 1 group set on the Hook 3<br />

was specifically developed for Cyclocross,<br />

with a clutch action derailleur and wide/<br />

narrow chainings working together to<br />

maintain an even chain tension, avoiding the<br />

risk of a dropped chain. The Force 1 hydraulic<br />

brakes provide supreme braking power and<br />

modulation allowing for more confidence<br />

when braking hard for corners and in fast<br />

descents.<br />

The steel frame<br />

adds compliance<br />

to the ride, giving<br />

the confidence to<br />

carve the perfect line<br />

through any corner.

In today‘s world of high modulus<br />

carbon fiber and complex hyroformed<br />

aluminum there is<br />

something about the clean and<br />

classic look of a steel frame<br />

that will always appeal, and not<br />

only to the purists. Being made<br />

from Reynolds 725 tubing, the<br />

Tempest has slim and clean lines<br />

synonymous with a classic steel<br />

frame but in an entirely modern<br />

design. Due to the inherent<br />

dampening characteristics of<br />

steel, the frame offers more<br />

compliance, making the<br />

frame effective in transferring<br />

power but also supple, for a<br />

comfortable ride. The modern<br />

road geometry avoids being<br />

too extreme, so the shorter rear<br />

end and head angle make for a<br />

comfortable and dynamic ride<br />

giving the confidence to carve<br />

through any corner.<br />

The Tempest makes no<br />

compromises in the drivetrain,<br />

thanks to the full Shimano<br />

105 group-set, and with 52/36<br />

chainrings and an 11-28 cassette<br />

there is always the right gear<br />

Tempest<br />


available, no matter the gradient. In order to put the energy down to<br />

the road, the Tempest comes with the Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheelset.<br />

The rims profile is wider to suit the 25c tires and as the rim is welded<br />

rather than pinned it is lighter too. A complete set of Deda components<br />

form the finishing kit. The Zero 2 stem RHM handlebar form a stiff<br />

and light cockpit and the sleek Fabric Scoop<br />

saddle and Deda RSX01 seatpost cement<br />

this bike as a truly modern race bike.

...with a less<br />

aggressive and more<br />

relaxed touring style<br />

geometry the ride<br />

is comfortable yet<br />


Sometimes you just want to take<br />

off on a longer ride, to explore<br />

new roads, discover new places<br />

and simply to relax and enjoy<br />

the ride. This is where the Audax<br />

comes in, with a less aggressive<br />

and more relaxed touring style<br />

geometry the ride is comfortable<br />

yet lively enough to keep you<br />

grinning from ear to ear. The<br />

frame is built from the same<br />

proven heat treated crmo tubes<br />

as the Arise, so just for peace<br />

of mind you know the bike is<br />

tough enough, to take on a bit of<br />

‘b-road’ if it‘s needed. Painted in<br />

a metallic white, with polished<br />

rear stays to show off the brazed<br />

dropouts the Audax has more of<br />

a custom handmade look that is<br />

guaranteed to turn a few heads.<br />

Out of the box the fitted fenders<br />

mean that bad weather is no<br />

longer a reason to stay indoors.<br />

The rear rack mounts also mean<br />

that adding panniers for longer<br />

touring rides is easily done. If<br />

your ride takes in some steeper<br />

climbs the compact crankset<br />

and 11-28 Shimano cassette<br />

Audax<br />


offers enough gears to keep spinning up all but the steepest Col’s.<br />

You can make more out of the descents thanks to the DT Swiss R24<br />

wheelset and the Continental 28c tires that keep rolling resistance to<br />

a minimum.

A Journey Beyond<br />

with Marc Maurer<br />

Perhaps the most important stage in the development of a new bike is the<br />

testing and evaluation, that’s the moment when you find out if all those ideas<br />

actually work out. When we heard our friend Marc was planning a bikepacking<br />

trip from Istanbul to Tehran, we knew that would be the perfect test<br />

for our new adventure-touring bike.<br />

Photos: Joachim Rosenlund

Where are you based and how old are you?<br />

I’m 34 years old and I’m based in Cologne, Germany<br />

Is “Istanbul - Tehran” your first long distance<br />

bike tour?<br />

“Istanbul - Tehran” is my second longer bike trip. In June<br />

2014 I cycled from Cologne to Istanbul and back again.<br />

My plan was to fly back to Germany from Istanbul, but<br />

when I arrived in Istanbul it felt kind of wrong to take the<br />

easy way home. So I decided to turn around and cycle<br />

back to Cologne. In the end I rode 6000km, covering<br />

40.000 vertical meters, spent 54 days in the saddle and<br />

crossed 16 countries, kind of crazy for my first bigger trip.<br />

Did you have a special preparation for this trip?<br />

I didn’t really prepare especially for the trip, but I ride almost<br />

daily anyway. After a while your body (and legs) get<br />

used to riding longer distances. The first couple of days you<br />

might not be able to ride very long distances, but after a<br />

while you can easily ride 100+ km every day (depending<br />

on the roads, mountains, heat, etc). The everyday riding is<br />

the best training there is...<br />

Eduard from “Veloküche” Shop in Cologne, is a bike mechanic<br />

and friend of mine, he gave me some lessons in<br />

solving minor technical problems. But during my two trips<br />

I didn’t had any technical problems at all, aside from a<br />

puncture or two.<br />

“At the stop, there were these mean looking soldiers...<br />

After some chit-chat, they warmed up and we drank a beer<br />

together...we had a great time with lots of joking around”<br />

In my opinion, the biggest challenge for a longer solo bicycle<br />

trip lies in your head. You have to spend day after<br />

day with yourself and your thoughts. Sometimes you don’t<br />

even talk to anybody for days. You really need to be able<br />

to enjoy – as well as to cope with being alone.<br />

How did you manage the change in languages,<br />

were you able to communicate with locals ok?<br />

I travelled the world quite a bit and it’s the same in almost<br />

every country. Even if you don’t speak their language or if<br />

they don’t speak English at all, you can always communicate<br />

with people somehow. Sometimes the only chance to<br />

interact with the locals is in sign language. Most of the time<br />

it’s very entertaining (for both parties) and it quite often<br />

leads to funny misunderstandings.<br />

In Turkey it was quite easy with English and sometimes<br />

even German, but it got more difficult in Georgia and Armenia,<br />

where the people rarely speak English at all. Iran<br />

was quite an experience, not many are able to speak<br />

English there (once you get off the beaten track), but the<br />

locals are so helpful and they really want to interact with<br />

you. They often call everybody they know to find someone<br />

who can speak English to translate. Quite a few times, they<br />

would even call people they didn’t know, like a local doctor<br />

or teacher, hoping they would know a few sentences in<br />

English. But it’s the same anywhere in the world, a smile<br />

and funny face is often enough...everybody understands a<br />

smile and laughter!<br />

Which countries did you cross, and what was<br />

your impression of them?<br />

I cycled through Turkey, Georgia, Armenia and Iran. The<br />

major impression in all four countries was the amazing<br />

hospitality and friendliness, and the diversity of the landscapes<br />

and nature.<br />

It started in Turkey with chai (tea) for free at almost every<br />

stop I made. In Georgia it was the incredible nature, with<br />

an enormous diversity for such a small country... the Black<br />

Sea, the really impressive and rough Caucasus Mountains<br />

and the semi deserts have been a fantastic place to ride,<br />

with great camping spots.<br />

In Armenia the people are unbelievably friendly and curious<br />

- sometimes people would pay for your groceries or<br />

give you little gifts - resistance futile! The country also has<br />

spectacular nature, especially around Seevan Lake. It’s<br />

also very mountainous, with daily tough mountain rides.<br />


In Iran EVERBODY was waving along the way and wanted<br />

to shake your hand/take a picture with you and just generally<br />

wanting to welcome you to the country. Iran is a<br />

country where even the police stop you just so they can<br />

invits you for a cup of tea! If you want to feel like a famous<br />

person, come to Iran!<br />

“Most of the time I slept in<br />

my tent, just somewhere<br />

wild. Often in really<br />

beautiful surroundings”<br />

Where did you sleep?<br />

Most of the time I slept in my tent, just somewhere wild.<br />

Often in really beautiful surroundings but also next to<br />

highways, behind petrol stations etc...Sometimes I asked<br />

people if I could sleep on their property, which often lead<br />

to a free breakfast. When it was raining for days, and my<br />

clothes and myself needed to dry, or if my clothes and I<br />

needed a wash (longest time without a shower: 7 days)<br />

I spent a night at a hostel, a homestead, or very seldom<br />

a hotel. In Iran random people invite you to stay at their<br />

house and to be their guests - almost every day, and on<br />

most days, several times!<br />

What was your nicest experience you had during<br />

your journey?<br />

I had many great experiences during my Trip. It’s difficult, if<br />

not impossible to pick one experience. In Armenia I made<br />

a quick stop to refill my water bottles. At the stop, there<br />

were these mean looking soldiers refilling the watertanks<br />

of their trucks. After some chit-chat, they warmed up and<br />

we drank beer together (they even challenged me to drink<br />

a beer in one go) and we had a great time together, with<br />

lots of joking around - all at eleven o’clock in the morning,<br />

right before a mountain climb...<br />

In Georgia I came through a small village and saw some<br />

kids playing football on a small soccer field. It had been<br />

quite a tough day with a 120 km ride, so I decided to ask<br />

the kids if they knew a place where I could camp for the<br />

night. Of course they didn’t understand me, so I ended up<br />

playing football with them instead. Suddenly it started to<br />

rain quite heavily, so I just put my tent up on the soccer field<br />

and slipped in. Moments later a young boy came and invited<br />

my to sleep in his family’s house because of the heavy<br />

rain, but because the tent was already wet, I decided to<br />

stay put. After a while an old lady came, woke me up and<br />

gave me cheese, bread and homemade wine. In the morning<br />

the young boy came again, this time with bread, butter,<br />

hot tea and a bottle of chacha (really strong homemade<br />

alcohol, up to 70%!!!) For breakfast!!!<br />

In Iran I was setting up camp under some trees on a patch<br />

of land, when two young guys came to say hello. I asked if<br />

it was ok for me to camp there and they said yes. We shook<br />

hands and they went off. After about 20min, they came<br />

back with a thermos flask with tea, a cup and sugar, plus<br />

a water melon. They gave me the stuff and went off again.<br />

I had some tea, ate the water melon and went off to bed.<br />

About an hour later, I was woken up to the sound of a lot of<br />

voices and as I looked out of my tent, there were about 12<br />

people with flash lights outside - the two guys had brought,<br />

more or less, half the village and they all wanted to say a<br />

“Hello”...<br />

What was the average daily distance you were<br />

doing?<br />

In average I did around 100 km per day, with an average<br />

of 1000 meters of climbing every day! The toughest day<br />

was the ride to, and up, the Georgian military highway<br />

to the Russian border...160km with an elevation gain of<br />

3225 Meter!<br />

How do you manage to take so much time out,<br />

what do you do for a living?<br />

I’m a Freelancer and at the moment I work as an exhibition<br />

builder, but actually I do anything for money. Travelling<br />

is a big part of my life and I do everything to see the<br />

world and make it a bit smaller. Traveling really opens your<br />

mind and connects people from different nations. Take Iran<br />

for example; cycling through the country has been such a<br />

positive experience and it really shows you how wrong the<br />

picture “our” media is selling us.<br />

It sounds like there was some real diverstity in<br />

the kind of terrain you were riding over, how<br />

did you go about choose your equipment for the<br />

trip?<br />

When I plan a trip I don’t really have a fixed route... I just<br />

start and see how it goes, talk to locals or other travellers<br />

about routes, roads, places etc. When it comes to the<br />

equipment you need, it’s different. You have to know what<br />

the weather will be like, what the roads will be like, if it’s<br />

possible to buy spare parts if something breaks etc.<br />

For bicycle touring or bikepacking it’s quite important to<br />

have reliable, lightweight gear, which is small in packing<br />

size. I chose a one person, 3-season tent, weighing<br />

only 1,2 kilos, which can withstand heavy rain and strong<br />

winds. In my opinion it is important that the tent is freestanding,<br />

so you can camp on surfaces were it’s not possible<br />

to use pegs. Finding the right sleeping bag is not easy<br />

(too hot, too cold...), but I went for a 850+ cuin down bag,

which weighs only 500 grams and packs really small, with<br />

a temperature range from 2 – 10°C. But one of the most<br />

important things to me is the sleeping mat. I tried a few until<br />

I found the perfect one for me. It’s really important to have a<br />

good night’s sleep after a hard day in the saddle.<br />

I have a multi-fuel stove that burns with more or less anything.<br />

In these countries it’s quite difficult to find gas or<br />

alcohol, but you will find petrol everywhere... and petrol is<br />

cheap, really cheap in these countries! Of course you don’t<br />

need all this “high-tech” stuff to do such trips, but for me it<br />

is definitely more fun to ride lightweight and to have really<br />

good reliable equipment with me!<br />

What about your bike, did you modify it in any<br />

way for the trip, or keep it pretty much standard?<br />

I only changed or added a few parts to make it suit my<br />

specific needs. I added a time trial bar for a more relaxed<br />

position in heavy head winds and for long, flat and straight<br />

roads. I fitted my trusted ‘flite’ saddle and added a dynamo<br />

hub for charging my phone, camera, MP3 player, lights<br />

etc. I also changed the tires as I needed something better<br />

suited for road and hard-pack riding. Most of the time I<br />

rode on paved roads, lets say around 70 % of the time,<br />

so the need for a tire that runs well on asphalt was there.<br />

I really liked the handlebar, it gives the possibility to ride in<br />

lots of different positions and it gives you a lot of control on<br />

difficult downhill patches with a rough surface. I also really<br />

liked the original setup of the drive train. The gear ratio<br />

was just perfect, both for climbing tough mountains, even<br />

fully loaded, and going high-speed on straight flat roads.<br />

Another great feature on the bike is, to have the possibility<br />

to mount up to 5 bottle cages!<br />

Where do you think the bike feels best? Climbing,<br />

rolling dusty gravel, long tarmac-paved<br />

roads?<br />

In my opinion the bike is great on all surfaces and for all<br />

conditions - it can take anything you throw at it!<br />

Even fully loaded it’s very stiff and you can go just everywhere<br />

with it. No matter if it’s off-road or on road. You can<br />

ride it very fast on paved roads and on gravel. In Georgia<br />

I had really bad “roads” for several days and the bikes<br />

performance was just brilliant! In Iran the roads are in really<br />

good conditions, the asphalt is perfect. The Beyond’s<br />

performance in these long asphalt sections was also amazing!<br />

For me the Beyond is the “eierlegende Wollmilchsau”<br />

I don’t know what that is in English, like an animal that can<br />

provide you with everything you could possibly need.<br />

“The major impression in all four countries was the amazing hospitality<br />

and friendliness, and the diversity of the landscapes and nature”<br />


When the lure of a journey<br />

into the wilderness takes<br />

hold, then the Beyond is the<br />

tool to make that journey<br />


When the lure of a journey<br />

into the wilderness takes hold,<br />

then the Beyond is the tool to<br />

make the journey happen. Built<br />

around a Columbus Cromor<br />

tube set that has been proven<br />

on our Hook bike, it’s tough,<br />

strong but light, exactly what’s<br />

needed in an adventure bike. In<br />

order to offer as many carrier<br />

options as possible the Beyond<br />

features front and rear rack<br />

mounts, as well as a total of<br />

five bottle cages. The lower top<br />

tube makes mounting the fully<br />

loaded bike much easier and the<br />

taller head tube provides a more<br />

comfortable riding position.<br />

In order to keep the shoulders<br />

from getting tired the handle<br />

bar is designed to offer as many<br />

hand positions as possible as<br />

well as the option for mounting<br />

an aerobar.<br />

When out in remote locations<br />

having tough and durable<br />

equipment is essential, so for<br />

this reason the Beyond uses<br />

the SRAM X7 rear derailleur,<br />

which is renowned for smooth<br />

Beyond<br />


and reliable shifting. The DT Swiss X1900 wheelset is tough enough<br />

for the more rugged off-road trails, without being too heavy when on<br />

smoother roads. In order to give the maximum traction possible the<br />

WTB Nano 2.1” tires are perfect on dirt trails but still roll smooth and<br />

fast on the road too.

The key to the Oxbridge’s<br />

visual appeal has always<br />

been the slim, clean<br />

frame in a timeless colour<br />

scheme, finished off with<br />

polished components.

The Oxbridge was designed<br />

as a classic styled single speed<br />

city bike, but with a modern<br />

overtone and a sportier feeling.<br />

The key to the Oxbridge’s visual<br />

appeal has always been the<br />

slim, clean frame in a timeless<br />

colour scheme, finished off<br />

with polished components. For<br />

<strong>2016</strong> the Oxbridge is available<br />

in either a deep black with a<br />

metallic brown flake, or a classic<br />

British racing metallic green,<br />

both of which use a double clear<br />

coat for a glossier and more<br />

durable finish. Also for <strong>2016</strong><br />

the bike has been updated with<br />

front and rear rack mounts, so<br />

if you’re looking for a little more<br />

practicality then installing a<br />

carrier is easily done.<br />

As you look closer at the<br />

Oxbridge you start to pick out<br />

details that set it apart from the<br />

crowd, like the embossing on<br />

the handlebar and saddle, the<br />

subtle logos on the hubs and<br />

stem. Due to it’s more sporty<br />

geometry the steering feels<br />

direct but at the same time the<br />

Oxbridge<br />


longer wheelbase helps keep things reassuringly stable. Thanks to the<br />

high quality sealed bearings in the hubs, the wheels glide effortlessly<br />

making the most out of every turn of the cranks.

Classic looks<br />

are once again<br />

combined with<br />

modern engineering.

Not everyone is fortunate to live<br />

in ‘pancake’ flat surroundings, so<br />

to get a little help on those hills<br />

the Oxbridge is now available<br />

in a ten-speed version. To carry<br />

on the theme of old meets new,<br />

the Oxbridge uses a downtube<br />

shifter paired up to a Shimano<br />

Tiagra 10 speed derailleur.<br />

This old meets new approach<br />

means the classic looks are once<br />

again combined with modern<br />

engineering.<br />

Thanks to the drop bar, there<br />

are a few more options for<br />

hand positions meaning a little<br />

extra comfort on longer rides.<br />

The frame also features bottle<br />

cage and rack mounts, so a<br />

longer weekend excursion is no<br />

problem now.<br />

The slim tubing<br />

is built around a<br />

geometry that strikes a<br />

balance between being<br />

fun and sporty yet<br />

comfortable to ride

The Trinity is all about riding<br />

in style, with its clean lines,<br />

vivid colours, polished parts,<br />

matching saddle and grips all<br />

giving the bike a timeless look.<br />

This bike is designed in a classic<br />

style Mixte frame, with the<br />

twin top tubes being split at the<br />

seat tube, as they connect the<br />

dropout to the head tube. This<br />

makes the frame very strong,<br />

and the ride more stable as a<br />

result. The slim tubing is built<br />

around a geometry that strikes a<br />

balance between being fun and<br />

sporty yet comfortable to ride.<br />

The bike features a colour coded<br />

front rack, made from Bamboo<br />

and alloy to be lightweight and<br />

durable. A rear rack can also<br />

be easily added thanks to the<br />

mounting points on the seat<br />

stays and dropout. The alloy<br />

fenders are also painted to<br />

match the bike and add some all<br />

weather use, so combined with<br />

the rack the Trinity really a daily<br />

companion.<br />

Trinity<br />


In order to keep the ride nice and easy no matter the gradient, the<br />

Trinity features the Sram automatic 2-speed hub that changes gear<br />

based on your speed, so you can relax and enjoy the ride. Both the<br />

front and rear hubs are laced into 28 hole double walled alloy rims<br />

that can take the sometimes harsh life of urban riding.

The geometry<br />

of a steeper<br />

head tube and<br />

a shorter chain<br />

stay gives the bike<br />

its characteristic<br />

nimble feel

The Divide has always been<br />

part urban commuter and part<br />

fixed gear freestyle, this blend<br />

of personalities gave the bike<br />

a diverse appeal. At the core<br />

of the bike is still the tough<br />

and dependable 4130 crmo<br />

tubed frame. The geometry<br />

of a steeper head tube and a<br />

shorter chain stay gives the<br />

bike its characteristic nimble<br />

feel. For <strong>2016</strong> there is a little<br />

more comfort designed into<br />

the geometry with longer head<br />

tube lengths to give a little more<br />

upright riding position. The<br />

fully heat-treated crmo fork and<br />

handlebar ensure the Divide can<br />

handle the ‘rough and tough’ of<br />

city riding with ease.<br />

To make the most of every turn<br />

of the three-piece crmo cranks,<br />

the Divide hubs feature fully<br />

sealed high quality bearings that<br />

keeping things rolling nice and<br />

smooth. Thanks to the thirtysix<br />

hole, double wall rims, the<br />

wheels can also take the daily<br />

knocks that come with urban<br />

riding.<br />

Divide<br />


Seeing how more and more riders where using the potential for the<br />

Divide as a tough commuter and city bike, for <strong>2016</strong> the bike comes<br />

with a cassette driver pre-installed (conversion to fixed is still possible).<br />

With the bike set up as a single speed the need for better braking<br />

comes about, and this is addressed through an under-mounted mini<br />

V-brake on the seat stays. The brake mounts<br />

and cable guides are all fully removable so<br />

the bike can be kept looking clean if setup as<br />

a brakeless fixed gear bike.

Jason Sellers<br />

catch up<br />

Jason Sellers<br />

Foto: Simon Hegenberg<br />

Working with talented and creative people is always motivating for us, seeing<br />

their skills breath life into a project never ceases to amaze. Jason Sellers is a<br />

photographer whose work has helped establish, and continues to define the<br />

identity of Bombtrack. As we are often asked, “who took those photos?” we<br />

thought it was about time we introduced the man behind the lens.<br />

There aren’t really that many photographers are<br />

really known for being specialist within the bicycle<br />

scene, how did you come to be involved?<br />

Well, actually shooting bikes is also only a part of my usual<br />

work, although it is one of the most important ones. My further<br />

focus is on Lifestyle in general, mainly Fashion but also<br />

documenting stuff. My urban bike shootings started back<br />

in the origin of today’s track bike scene when I was sent<br />

around by ZONTRAC to shoot their clothing and accessories<br />

in an appropriate urban surrounding. As they enjoyed<br />

a good reputation at the core of urban fixed gear I was<br />

lucky to get in contact with the main and most known protagonists<br />

and who I was able to shoot photos for. Thereby<br />

my sphere of action increased immediately, loads of travel<br />

and adventures all connected to bicycles.<br />

What is the special attraction of shooting within<br />

the bicycle scene and are you specialized to a<br />

certain segment of cycling?<br />

The special appeal for me is documenting not only the moment<br />

of a certain race or any event I am attending but also<br />

everything that is surrounding it. It’s not only about the so<br />

called “action shot” but also about capturing cycling as<br />

a ‘movement’, its people and their characters. For me it’s<br />

as much about the life off the bike as it is on it. Very often<br />

these are actually the special moments I am looking for,<br />

showing those people and their bikes during their preparation<br />

or documenting their emotions during and after the<br />

race, or event.<br />

Are you riding bikes yourself – and if, did you<br />

come to cycling through your photography or<br />

did you came to shoot by biking?<br />

For fours years I am riding far more seriously than I ever<br />

did before, not limited to any certain niche but all kind of<br />

cycling, depending on the options available at that moment.<br />

Retrospectively I’d say I came to shooting bikes by<br />

riding myself, although I must confess my riding became<br />

far more serious since I had incredible riders and their<br />

beautiful bikes in front of my lens. Also I think it is a huge<br />

advantage to know through experience those “magic moments”<br />

and the emotions that occur during a ride, then you<br />

can be sure you’re in the right place to capture it, those<br />

situations often lead to the strongest images.<br />

How and when did your cooperation with<br />

Bombtrack start?<br />

This mainly happened through my work for Zontrac. The<br />

brand shared the same central European distributor with<br />

Bombtrack. Beside sharing the distribution they also shared<br />

one Team rider ,Simon “Gomok” Andraca, who I once had<br />

to shoot for Zontrac in Paris. One day before we had to<br />

shoot I received a call from Bombtrack to see if I could take<br />

some photos for their catalogue too.<br />

From then I met Manuel from Bombtrack, and from then on<br />

I think he was at every single event I was. We got talking<br />

and felt a similar vibe and perspective about cycling and I<br />

guess I became the guy doing their main lifestyle shootings<br />

So the brand’s start was pretty much the time we first kicked<br />

it off. Ever since then, our relationship has grown and we<br />

have been continuously working together. Thanks guys for<br />

your support and the rad time so far!<br />

How does your work for Bombtrack differ from<br />

your usual jobs?<br />

Well first off Bombtrack leaves me a lot of freedom, which

“It’s not only about the so called “action shot” but also about<br />

capturing cycling as a ‘movement’, its people and their<br />

characters”<br />

Jason caught Stefan ‘Fish‘ Vis,<br />

taking a break during the 2014<br />

Transalp<br />

From your website and blog it looks as though<br />

you are on the road a fair bit. Is that something<br />

you enjoy?<br />

As I am based in Wiesbaden near Frankfurt (Germany) the<br />

possibilities to get the right shot ‘next-door’ are quiet limited,<br />

so it’s actually necessary to travel a lot when it comes<br />

to shooting bikes in their environments. I personally welcome<br />

my travels a lot as I gives me the possibilities to travel<br />

the world and discover various cultures and its people. As<br />

cycling is the way to experience a city in its most intensive<br />

traits its always great to see that perspective. Even without<br />

any bike relation travelling in general is a very important<br />

component for a complete life, in my opinion.<br />

Which special moments from a trip or photo<br />

shoot have been most memorable for you?<br />

The most memorable things have to come from the road<br />

trips, in particular a 2 week journey we did in a huge<br />

motorhome from New York to San Francisco, onboard with<br />

seven of the world’s best Fixed-freestyle riders from all over<br />

the world. Unfortunately it was also that famous trip when<br />

Simon ‘Gomok’ Andraca who was probably Europe’s best<br />

rider at the time, did so many roof drops with a wrist that<br />

was still recovering from a prior injury, it ended up causing<br />

long term damage and he gave up freestyle riding.<br />

But like I said, I enjoy being on any kind of trip, with whatever<br />

kind of riding it happens to be. I really enjoyed being<br />

at the Transalp last year, shooting Stefan “Vis” Fish. That<br />

was a real highlight for me, but also traveling to the Red<br />

Hook Crit races is turning into a regular thing for me, and<br />

I love to be at those events too.<br />

is always nice, making the whole workflow very fun. Where<br />

as in a lot of my usual jobs like editorials for magazines,<br />

fashion and lifestyle jobs, I have stricter guidelines and less<br />

room for own interpretation. Plus I just love shooting cycling<br />

related things. It’s a blast, I love bikes, I love being<br />

outdoors, you get your share of nature and cityscapes, and<br />

you’re mainly dealing with down to earth people. It’s just a<br />

pleasant field to work in.<br />

What equipment do you typically shoot with?<br />

I am mainly using a digital set up as a working horse – it<br />

consists of a Canon 5D mark2 and mark 3, 15mm Fisheye,<br />

24-70mm, 50mm, 70-200mm. For personal stuff and<br />

rather arty shots, I like to take analog stuff along too, for<br />

example the Pentax K1000 or my Hasselblad 503 CX.<br />


The Dash is where it all began<br />

for Bombtrack, with the original<br />

bike being released back in 2011.<br />

The core of fixed gear freestyle<br />

riders are continuing to push<br />

the limits and reset the idea of<br />

what is possible on a fixed gear<br />

bike. With heavy influences<br />

from Skate and BMX, riders like<br />

Elliott Milner and Matt Reyes<br />

continue to astonish with each<br />

new edit they release.<br />

What made the Dash the ‘go to’<br />

bike for fgfs was its credibility<br />

brought about through the BMX<br />

heritage in the bloodlines. For<br />

<strong>2016</strong> the Dash frame has had<br />

the stand over height reduced<br />

to give a bit more clearance<br />

over the top tube. The frame<br />

dropouts have been shortened<br />

so that they don’t catch during<br />

grinds, and up front the forks<br />

have been updated for extra<br />

hub guard clearance. The new<br />

Vex compound Saltplus grips<br />

use a classic lamella pattern<br />

in a slightly slimmer diameter<br />

for more ‘feel’ and the Stealth<br />

nylon/fiberglass pedals provide<br />


Fixed freestyle<br />

street weapon, or<br />

urban 26” singlespeed<br />

machine,<br />

you decide.<br />


improved grip and a solid base for pedal grinds.<br />

Look closely at the seat stays on the Dash and you will notice the<br />

mounts for brake pivots. This new feature has been added for those<br />

riders who want to use the Dash in a single<br />

speed set up (possible thanks to the fixed/<br />

cassette hub system) with a better braking<br />

performance from a U-brake.
