Again, it took more time than I was hoping, but in the end everything turned out really great. I hope you like this collection, read on to learn more!
For this late summer collection I teamed up with a friend of mine, typographer. He played around with our „The Kids all Ride“ slogan and came up with a really nice script version and a great Pixação version. Especially the Pixação, a tagging/graffiti style from the southeastern metropolitan areas in south america, version look awesome, with it’s bold lettering.
The reflective print on a black shirt!
This late summer collection also marks the first part of a really special collaboration.
artist from Berlin, drew some amazing artworks exclusive for AURORA and i’m really happy to finally release the first artwork today. I’m a huge fan of his art and i’m very proud that I can work together with him.

You might have seen Perrion before, I mentioned him several times on the website and the AURORA facebook page.
He is still going strong working on his new EP. “Get A Job” is the first song from this upcoming EP and Perrion released it with a nice music video.
In the opening scene he is rocking the AURORA “Skate” Shirt.
Good tunes, good taste!
Also check out the “Get A Job” live performance.
There Perrion wears the beloved AURORA “Serif” Snapback.
Really great to see such a great artist supporting AURORA.
During the Till are portraying cyclists mainly in Hamburg, but also everywhere else. With WE ARE TRAFFIC they want to draw attention to the bicycle as means of transport and also show the differences and diversity of each bicycle and his owner.
In the last 6 months they portrayed more than 100 people and they are preparing to raise funds to publish all this as a coffee-table book version. This project is really worth supporting, check out this page to support WE ARE TRAFFIC.
Some of you might remember schindelhauer bike for a while now and supports AURORA when ever she can. I’m really happy to see this much support from all those great people.
Björn from WE ARE TRAFFIC took the chance and did a spontaneous shooting with Mianzi in the snowy Berlin. The pictures came out really great. Thanks to both of them.
That’s what’s it all about.
The force that guides and moves us!
My friend Lorenzo Taurino collected adventures, stories, anecdotes and photographs from his journies and added some more of close friends. All this composed in a neatly printed zine.
Also included is the custom made AURORA x Bill Cosby Cycling Cap.
I’m really proud to be a small part of this first issue.
You get this zine for free with every order, just add it to your cart and other products.
But feel free to donate something to GUDE ZEIT, if you like to support it and want to help to release more issues!
I just wanted to post my beloved Principia to the Pedalroom website and thought that I could also post it here.
Not much personal bike content here so far, so why not change this?
The Principia is simply my favorite bike, it’s just subtle and beautiful all black. That’s why I use to call it “Phantom”.
I’ve built it up more than 2,5 years ago and just rode it since then. I will never give it away, for me this one is not replaceable and it outlived a lot other frames/parts/bikes so far. The parts used in the current built are mostly chosen because of the weight and quality. Step by step I tried to push down the weight and in the current set-up the Principia weights only about 7,5 kg.
I also really like the AURORA V1 velcro straps on this bike. These are one of the first prototypes made in early summer 2009. I’m not riding as hard as many others and not that long as so many couriers do everyday worldwide, but I’m happy that they still do well after more than 3 years. Compared to the AURORA Straps today, they look really crappy, but it is also good to see where it all started and how everything developed in the right direction.

so it’s summer (kind of at least) and it’s time for hanging around with boys and girls, riding bikes and boards, traveling, enjoying bbqs and beer and much more. I love this stuff and I bet you do aswell.
A lot people use Instagram and so I thought this could be a fun thing for AURORA.
Why not sharing your great AURORA moments? This means, when you got something related and fitting to AURORA or just a eyecandy from your recent ride or roadtrip for example. I bet other AURORA fans would like to see it aswell – with using the AURORA hashtag #auroracollective, you can directly share your moment on the AURORA facebook page. I’m really curious about your impressions…
Maybe I will choose one great picture every once in a while and provide the creator with a suprise.
So keep the quality top-notch and have fun checking out the pictures.
The good people from FTT Oslo dropped their awaited third edit. Another eyecandy, with great riding and of course the wonderful Norwegian landscape. Always great to see some visuals from the European Scene.
The camera work is stunning… Check it out.
P.S.: If you haven’t heard from them so far, you should check out FTT edit #2!
Bill Cosby is the man, that’s why we have our beloved “Cosby says” Shirt to pay tribute to him and his life.
Some month ago we discovered This limited cycling cap is the result. Absolute stunning and unique work.
It is made of a new “Cosby says” Shirt and comes in a medium size. This means it fits most heads around 55cm-58cm. Perfectly handcrafted in Germany.
This limited cycling cap is definitely one of a kind. Be quick and get yours. Other sizes on request.
