Berliner Fahrrad Schau 2014 After Movie

This event always looks so awesome.

“In its 5th anniversary year, the Berliner Fahrrad Schau has established itself once and for all among exhibitors and audiences as a contemporary and influential trend show for urban bicycle themes, racing, bicycle accessories and bicycle fashion, and has already set a course for the year 2015. Next, the trade fair will be part of the planned multi-day Berlin Bicycle Week.”

Zak Kovalcik from Bike Messenger to Six Day Racer

I’m so pumped on this!

“Zak’s racing career began as a courier in Pittsburgh, competing in local courier races, twice winning the North American Cycle Courier “Track King” title. He segued into racing on the velodrome and worked his way through the ranks quickly.

2011 saw Zak winning the Alpenrose Velodrome Challenge points race, the biggest race of the year at his home track, defeating arch rival Jame Carney. At the Fixed Gear Classic in Blaine, MN, Zak and long time madison partner Dan Harm won the madison, competing against long time Six Day pro Franco Marvulli.

Zak still works occasionally as a courier, but his main focus is on moving up to the next level in his racing career. His dream until a year ago? Racing pro six days in Europe. Then in 2013 the all-but-forgotten art of steher racing had a little yankee flavour added during the 102nd Berlin Six Day when reining US omnium champion Zak Kovalcik competed in the high-speed niche event.

And we’ve been lucky enough to follow him during this amazing week in Berlin. ”

Pelago Goes to Berlin

Sorry for the lack of posts over the past few days, I’ve been in bed with a stomach bug. Needless to say, I don’t think I’ll be craving BBQ for a while.

ANYWAY, check out this video from Pelago!

“In the end of February 2013, we took our bikes, rode them into a boat and headed from Helsinki to Berlin to set up our temporary shop in Brunnenstrasse 156 and to participate in the Berliner Fahrrad Schau. The boat took us to Rostock and from there we cycled through Sietow and Neuruppin to reach Berlin.”

No one will argue that the best way to see a city is by bike and that’s what Charge is promoting in their newest video. This one in particular was shot in Berlin on a Scissor FGFS.
