  • Yes mate, PM-ing you my phone number

  • Hiii Berliners,

    Does anyone have a spare room I can rent instead of going to air bnb.

    Dates 20/07/22 to 22 / 07/22 (wednesday & thursday night) and then Monday 25/07/22.

    Please let us pay - two nice people just there to eat kebab.

  • Hey, might join u for the morning ride and a bit of coffee/fleamarketing. Will DM u and we can swap mobile numbers maybe?

  • lil write-up of the Saturday tour:
    we met with @Brameses at 9.30 , only to be delayed by a broken stem of a mate, but luckily he lives 200m from the starting point and one bike swap later, we started our tour. we had perfect weather and first headed to the flea market. it's not very fancy and unfortunately, there were only complete bikes and absolutely no parts sale, so we just took a stroll and had a nice chat with one of the sellers. highlight was some ancient bike computer, pictured below. we then headed to the finish line of fixed42, but instead of watching the race we drank beers and enjoyed the sun. bram left us after this but the remaining ones wanted to see the new standert kreissäge rs, so we headed to the showroom at Friedrichstr. and checked them out. 1.6k just for the frameset ......
    all in all very lovely ride with @Brameses and others, top guy !

  • Anyone will travel to Polands Rock Festival 4-6 august?
    Not far from Berlin, free/for donation entrance, Limp Bizkit CANCELED will play and also they will have a Lidl pop up supermaket there :D
    Should be a super g000d m000d!!!!

  • this sounds like a Polish Reading festival!

  • Dear fellow Berlin forumites, you guys have any leads on a metallwerkstatt or even fancy bike shop that could shave off a few mm of a threaded disc adapter out of aluminium? Vielen Dank im voraus!

  • Like this but black

  • I think the Radsport Heinze guys do stuff like that.
    Never been there, but a friend of mine is best buddies with them, and iirc he said they have a mill.

  • Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give them a ring. Close by enough too, live in Reuterkiez.

  • They are great, in a very Berlin way.
    Quite serious about road racing.
    Only met them at the six day race, and they had loads of tasty beer.

  • try Rene at Monteverde, he does bikes and also lots of little engineering projects. Super nice dude­ycles/

  • Hi @HK_Berlin - bit of a dredge/diversion but do you know if this bike flea market thing is on most days/just Saturdays/only occasionally etc..? Any other suggestions for 2nd hand bike-buying in Berlin in August on a Friday or Saturday?! Cheers.

  • they even have a website: , next one would be the 20.08. at Berolinastraße 20, 10178 Berlin

  • Great, really helpful - thank you!

  • Sorry, realise I have a few more questions - are components sold there too? Is there an equivalent to a UK bicycle jumble? + Say if in the future I also wanted to fish around for a 2nd hand Rohloff and Gebla box -where's the best place for that -

  • yo, buying components is difficult on the flea markets, basically only complete bikes are sold. kleinanzeigen is the best shot for individual parts, I search there occassionally, too. if you search oldschool stuff, cicli berlinetta in Prenzlauer Berg can sort you out, but the shop is not the cheapest.

  • Thank you again! This is really helpful.


    pretty sure this is one of those Masi fixies, if anyone is in the market for a ratty re-spray fix

  • Any Hamburg people in here?
    Looking for road bike rental and maybe someone who can suggest me a route or social ride.
