Photography has always been important to us. Since we rarely sell a bicycle that isn’t unique in it’s own way, shooting these bikes is a way for us to remember what’s passed through the doors, and an archive of inspiration for what lies ahead. Almost every bike makes me sit back and just think, ‘holy shit’. Thank you, Dear customer, for creating such a beautiful machine, and our photographer Andreas Sütterlin for the great photographies you are doing for us.

Titan Pinion with Lefty

Bikes needs to be simplified again. Also a mountainbike. This was the basic idea behind that titan hardtail with Pinion, Lefty and Gates Carbon drive. Moreover it needs to be, robust, clean, durable and cope with a sportiv riding style. So in total HILITE was the right partner. The result is this titanium hardtail with a Cannondale Lefty suspension, a Pinion gear hub combined with Gates carbon drive. The geometry was perfectly adjusted to my needs and the big bandwith of the Pinion gearhub makes the bike to a perfect climber. The Lefty combined with the 29' wheels and 2.35' tyres makes every downhill, Singletrail and obstancles for a big pleasure and safe ride. No bothersome chain noises and very fast shifting procedures. The titanium components makes the bike look clean and classy and increases the comfort.
