  • Did some "field testing" in Germany this weekend, very important, very official business... Here is some photographic evidence that no shenanigans were had, all business. Interested in the GPX file? Send a DM.

  • Went riding with a weekly hoonabout last night. I know Rotterdam gets a bad sometimes when it comes to cycling... That it's all industry and polder. That mean not be incorrect, but that certainly doesn't ruin the party, especially when the ride ends at a dive bar. I love being a part of this cycling scene, y'all are rad as hell.

  • Happy to have been asked to build this wheelset for @stjoriscycles. The builder Alex, is working with such high standards these days... I mean, the guy makes his own BB cups just to avoid bite marks from install! ❤️ I'm flattered to have been able to build wheels that match this standard.

These wheels will be under a new St. Joris frame for Aldo.

  • First build with the new Duke Road Runner. Previously one of my favourite rims to build with, the new version is just as good but with an add 30mm depth and a little bit different aesthetic with the matte finish. Really excited to have these in stock!

  • I get asked a lot why I use rotor adapters instead of just using the "correct" disc. Although adapters aren't always ideal, I use them often for bikes that will be doing lot's of traveling.⁣
⁣
6-Bolt rotors are generally cut from one piece of steel, meaning you'll have a much greater chance of saving a royally bent-up rotor compared to a alu/steel hybrid centerlock rotor. Further, if you need to replace a rotor underway somewhere, you have twice the chance that the shop will have a usable rotor as you can now fit 6-bolt and centerlock!⁣
⁣
...and to set the record straight, with this application it is my preference to just use 6-bolt rotors given that they don't require special tools or fittings, but sometimes the available hub version doesn't fit within the broader picture.⁣

  • I often get asked whether or not I have any Parallel branded merch. Stickers, t-shirts, cycling jerseys, the works. Most of the time the answer is "no", however now is your chance to get a different answer! Long story short... You want a Parallel Handbuilt cycling jersey, now's your chance. DM me now as this run will be of a very limited number of shirts. Keen to get a sneak peek of the design? Or maybe you want to see the sizing chart? DM me. Read on...⁣
⁣
I'm always excited to offer people a platform for their creativity, as is the case with this project. I've asked a number of local designers/cyclists to design a jersey and this is the first of the series. I'm not going to tell you (yet) who the first artist is, but dang am I proud to work with this person, and I cannot wait to have the design brought to life.⁣
⁣
On top of challenging designers to step out of their usual medium, often static and 2D, and design something dynamic and 3D when worn, this project will be supported by the wild kids at Weoutdoor. Weoutdoor is making some crazy rad shirts, and almost the whole range is 0KM products... that is, Spanish fabric, cut, sublimated, and sewn in Spain.⁣

Questions? Send me a message/WhatsApp/email! Stay tuned for more updates.⁣

  • New Parallel News! Check your inbox! Not subscribed? Damn, then you're missing out on a poorly formatted email where I wax poetic about some old motorcycle, GPS and GLONASS, and barely even mention bikes... But trust me, it's secretly only about bikes, I promise. ---

Parallel HQ is somewhere in the woods soaking up the canopy rays, we'll back, like always and forever, Tuesday afternoon.

  • They've arrived! The long awaited, much acclaimed @reneherse Juniper Ridge (650b*48). Anyone serious about their on-road/off-road-ing should have this tire in their stable. ---
I love this tire tread for so many reasons, but real talk first. I, and most of my clients, live in South Holland, and here there's not much hardcore off-road so really any "gravel" ride you do is bound to be mostly asfalt, but still with that famous Dutch sand in between. Additionally, many people like to take their gravel/CX bike to Brabant or another more wild province in the weekend to shred some MTB parcours or some gravel, or even mud! If this is you, then the Juniper Ridge is your tire... Or yeah, "one of..."😉

  • Did some, uh, "testing" last night with the K-Lite Ultra MTB light on a freshly built Velo Orange Piolet. Still blows my mind how confident I can ride singletrack at night with this light, without even using a headlamp!

This Colnago was in for repair and new Grand Bois extralights. Couldn't resist sharing.

Deliberating over a (second hand) N+1 mtb to be able to handle the even rougher muddier stuff and/or up the rando, versus making my beautiful @lestercycles even more versatile with this 650b wheelset - not the hardest choice i ever made. Can’t wait to try them out!

Lian is a cornerstone of the Rotterdam cycling scene. You've almost definitely seen one of her photos in a magazine, or on the internet when your adblocker cut out for a moment. Lian travels a lot and finds herself far from the beaten path, and asked me to build something that can support her  and her @lestercycles on these adventures.

This wheelset is the ever beautiful, ever trustworthy, sporty Blunt SS wrapped around a DT 350 in the rear and a SON 28 dynamo in the front. This dynamo hub will provide years of reliable electricity and both hubs will allow the swap to thru-axles, should that ever be necessary (front is 100*12mm already and will be run with a QR adapter). This all fits into the "goedkoop is duur koop" ethos that Lian tries to avoid.

Enjoy it Lian.
