Hey, wondering if there are enough Berlin residents or regular visitors from the UK/Europe/rest of Germany here who would be interested in having an LFGSS microcosm specifically for the city? Just moved back here from London and there's a big distinctive cycling culture here with loads going on (and bikes endlessly changing hands), and reckon a good English-language forum would be helpful in the midst of it all. Any thoughts? Cheers.
Hi, I'm currently living in Berlin and would be interested in a Berlin specific part to the forum! I'm currently pretty detached from cycling though due to having a young child and no time but am hoping that that will change in the new year. Who else on here is in Berlin then?
I am living in Berlin, so definitely in! Berlin forum ride could be great!
Hey neighbour! That's great. Any chance you know how's best to go about setting it up?
Hey, cool, thanks for replying ! I'll keep the thread updated with any progress.
Yo, I am also in Berlin if this gets made....
yoyo, @Velocio? I´m in!
Hi Berlin folks. I have a lovely 55cm Moser frame and fork with a brand new BB languishing in my apartment, which I'm considering either building up or selling on as is – any interest here? Cheers
I am moving to Berlin in a few months, great to hear there is a solid culture already - are there some pages/forums/threads I can join that you know of?
Would love to get out for a few rides when I get there!
Is @radius still in Berlin?
Yes he is 👋🏻 I am not very deep in the scene here, but we could always build our own 😎
Hello dear boy!
Hope all is well with you and that Berlin is coping with the pandemic.
just in case any of you berlin folks are looking for a new wheelset, bikepunk have the new omnium track wheelset for a prettty cheap price atm;
The guy in the shop said stock is a bit all over the place during covid but i placed an order and think i will get them next week apparently.
Hey @Brameses, did you get those wheels in the end? How are they? I'm finally going back to Berlin on Sat and need a wheelset.
yo @merlmoon sooooo my german let me down. i ordered 'laufradsatz' which i thought was plural, but turns out it was just the back wheel, hence the low low price. the whole set i think they said was 280 in the end. Im sure that they are very good but i opted for some novatec ones in the end which i think were 160 or so the pair. i have the supremely beaten up ones they replaced if u just need a beater set to hold you over, you are welcome to them!
Oh gott, that would have gotten me too! Bad luck. That's so kind, and actually a beater wheelset would be really helpful right now, thank you! Whereabouts are you?
Berliners: how about an lfgss drink one of these days?
Trying to find my way around the cycling culture here.
