A week in the life of Olaf the Cyclist

As  the sun is rising higher and higher above the horizon, Olaf has become more and more busy. Between preparations for Berliner Fahrradschau in the land of bier, wurst and no-speedlimit horseways; taking moving-pictures for a new villagefunding campaign and production of goods, there has been very little time for sleep. But mythical as it may sound, under the label of labour of love, it has been a very enjoyable week indeed.

So what is Olaf making for the villagefunding campaign?

Villagefunding platform by the name of Kickstarter has been a huge help to Olaf’s business thusfar. After the first campaign, Olaf has been on a quest to design the perfect urban bicycle. He has been looking for the perfect balance between comfort, practicality, speed and personalization. After testing of different components since the end of the summer, Olaf is now happy with the setup. He won’t go into details just yet, but took a selfie to give a first glimpse:

What will be new for Berliner Fahrradschau?

After thorough tests of the bicycle-whale-carrier, Olaf has been perfecting production methods and equipment. He has prepared the tubing for a new version of the bicycle-whale-carrier with lovely laser cut frame attachments. The TIG type blacksmith machine still needs a barrel of Argon, and the new version will be ready next week. In addition Olaf has prepared a bunch of prototype elk-horn-antler-bike-rests that will be sold for quite a few gold coins fewer than the normal models.

So make sure you stop by Berliner Fahrradschau if you’re in Berlin between 18-20 of March.

There was also a day when Olaf managed to curb his enthusiasm for selfies and took pictures of the upgraded new elk-horn-antler-bike-rests. Upgrades include a chromed pipe vs previously painted pipe and a laser cut logo. Head over to our shop and treat yourself to a lovely storage solution for the new season: http://kpcyclery.com/

Lastly a pro tip from South Africa – get a fast bike or you’ll get run over by an ostrich.
