    We're the main service workshop in Oslo for these. They're pretty solid, stainless steel frame with cable steering and a shortish wheelbase that makes them pretty lively. They come with 27*2.8 and 20*2.4 tyres so the rides pretty cushy too. There's room for two kids in the box. They're still a pretty small operation and produce in batches in Columbia, most of the bikes sell out before delivery so they're not something you can just pick up in a shop but this should be fixed by spring 2021 with a proper electric version promised later next year I think. The last batch came with deore group.

    I keep flip flopping, my last two bikes were black and bare clearcoat but I think the Humu deserves some colour... Maybe even a green/yellow fade!

    This is my third Kona, a Humu bought from @n3il on here to replace a skip rescue Dr. Dew I snapped in half. I've been commuting on it year round here in Oslo, so far so good!

    I usually have full fenders and a wald on the rack but they got taken off with the studded tyres last week in a spring frenzy. It needs paint before next winter comes, right now I'm thinking about stripping the green and glitter clearcoating the bare metal...

    Hey London polofolks! I have some friends that have started producing bike parts in the far east, they can get TRP spire/spike type mechanical disc brakes at about half price of what the real ones cost. I've tested the short pull version here in Oslo and they look promising, would there be interest in a long pull version in the poloverse if we got them produced?

    @spotter They come on a cargo bike that we sell, pretty decent side visibility and roughly the same brightness and beam as my Supernova e3. Build quality is solid too!

    Just saw the Big Bro, would have definitely been a contender if I knew about it when I was getting my Ogre!

    Bars are @stedlocks special limited edition. Tyres are maxxis ardent 2.4, tonnes of fun.

    Jepp! I don't weigh that much and got a pretty good deal on them so thought I'd give them a go. Pretty nice so far!
