What a weekend!
Got back from the Berliner Fahrrad Schau on Monday and I’m still really tired, but all the work was worth it. So much positive feedback and interest in AURORA during the whole weekend. It was great to speak and see so many customers. A lot people came by and said “hello” or even bought some new gear.
Thanks a lot for your support!
And also thanks to Sandra, for helping out so much and made it possible to set up such a nice booth. And speaking of the booth, thanks to Stefan (and also Max) from 8bar bikes who made it possible and let me share the booth with them. It was a nice to have you around. Also Stefan participated in some of the Fixed Days competitions and he made the third place in the Criterium.
Sadly there wasn’t much time for us to check out the Fahrrad Schau, but a lot friends visited the store and we at least had some minutes to talk. It was great to meet the nice people behind SWRVE UK for the first time, they do some really nice bike related apparel mostly Made in the USA or UK. It was also great to meet the guys at schindelhauer bikes and OZON bamboo bikes/Naturrad again. They do incredible work, still want to get a schindelhauer bike for me, this Carbon Belt Drive System they use catches me every time I see it and try it out. The upcoming releases by 8bar bikes also looked pretty legit.
Check out some pictures of the fair attached to this posting.
See you next year, Fahrrad Schau!
But the work continues and there are a lot things in the planning process right now.
I’m making the last tweaks and decisions to get everything done like it should be.
Sounds mysterious right?
To clear this up a bit, I can proudly tell you that I’m working on a lot cut&sew stuff these days. From t-shirts, to buttondown shirts, more caps and also functional jackets.
And speaking of production, the background is also important, everything (!!!) will be Made in Europe/Germany under fair working conditions and as sustainable as possible. I’m really curious about all this and I can’t wait to show the results in the end.
Besides this I also worked on a new cycling kit design, I had a preview with me at the Fahrrad Schau and posted it on instagram aswell. Check it out here. It’s going to be a limited edition, so watch out for the preorder.
…. and speaking of cycling, the first colorways of the 2013 AURORA velcro straps collection will be up soon aswell.
