Clown-Intro Workshop in Berlin

Here’s the Flyer…


Just a short update for anyone in Berlin eager to participate in experimental BikeBuilding…
We have a workshop & tools ready for new whacky ideas…

Finished Projects so far: The Cargobike witch synchronized front V-Brakes

Our Recumbent with hybrid gearing -18 Gears alltogether- and Underseat Steering


Over the Winter we‘ve laboriously furnished our Workshop with junk from the street and tools from flee-markets and ebay…. and now there are two bikes (allmost) ready to hit the streets!

The cargo-bike is receiving its paint job right now (the same paint by the way that was used last winter for the Tandem) and has successfully been test driven!

And I‘ve been working like crazy yesterday to get the recumbent done so that I can have a first drive with it.
Seems ok… did some seat adjustments since then – and the pedals might be a little to high … but we ll see … I ll do a little more test driving befor I hack it appart again

Hopefully one or better all of these bikes will join our Tour this summer…

Wintertour 2009


December 21-26, 2009
350 km in 5 days
average speed: 70 km/day

The first big test for our tandem . . . an easy ride, extremely comfortable with sheep furs on the seats! Our gear held up to the 4 days of camping in -5°C and one day of drying at a friend’s house. Sliding around and falling over on the icy cycling paths broke the steering before we left Berlin, but we fixed it right away and had no more problems. The spike tires got us out of many high snow drifts and stopped us from sliding away on the icy hills.

We made it to the Youth Environmental Conference (JUKSS) and gave a workshop for 30 young rebel clowns, taught stilt-walking-basics to 6 people, created street theater performances about deportating illegal immigrants, and played more music at night than we slept . . .
. . . and we took the train back to Berlin — the tandem even fits on an escalator!

Christmas Fundraiser

Here are some pictures from our fundraiser on the Christmasmarket in Berlin.
We were playing for about 4 hours and had a fairly big crowd! We also sold patches and buttons and informed about the project.
Around 180 Euro were collected – Thank You!
