Review – Tune Dreckschleuder for Cycling across Europe

24. September 2018

Tim Wiggins from lifeinthesaddle.cc tested our Dreckschleuder wheelset on his cycling tour #RoadsFromRome. On his nearly 2500 kilometers long journey from Rom to the North Sea in the Netherlands, once across Europe, he tested our Dreckschleuder wheelset intensely. In his blog he posted a review of his wheelset change, including the different advantages of a wheelset change on a touring bike. Tim was already very pleased with the wheelset before the start of his journey: “the bike felt stiffer, stronger, more efficient, and significantly better at cornering”. The fact that the wheelset can be used on gravel, road and mountain bikes made him confident in his choice. The performance of wheels on the 26 kilograms fully loaded bike was also only positive: “the wheels performed with strength and silence”. Concluding he can highly recommend the Dreckschleuder wheelset: “This is German engineering and manufacturing at its best: light, strong, and built to last. The Dreckschleuder wheel set comes highly recommended, whatever your discipline.”

Only during the last climb the vice champion Sikle Ulrich came dangerously close. At the last intermediate time the lead sank to 12 seconds. Even with Silke only a couple seconds behind Sabine stayed calm and kept the young rider on distance. At the end she could sovereignly with with a riding time of 3:15:59 h with 18 seconds lead to Silke Ulrich. „I rode my rhythm during the first climb and could thereby ride out a advantage. After half of the distance I had to take out a bit, because cramps started to announce. To the end I did not want to risk anything.“ „Of course it is amazing to win my 20th German champion title today. The lookouts were not to good after some problems during the…

Our Tune Tool TT10 tested by HIBIKE

20. März 2018

Last summer we presented together with the German tools specialist WIHA the Tune Tool TT10. A small bit holder with 7 bits for on the go or at home. Thanks to the small handle you can also work on hardly accessible parts of the bike. Natalie from the HIBIKE bog tested your tool and created a small review. In the test she remarks the tiny size of the tool an notices that it is „not bigger than a lighter“. She also created a small hands on video of our tool: Concluding HIBIKE comes to a very positive result: “ Fits in every small empty backpack space and holds all necessary bits together at one place. I like the small tool, if on the bike or while assembling a shelf. There is always a space for a mini tool, especially if it is that stylish“.

We offer the saddle with three different coloured leather covers or in Alcantare. Tanja has chosen the saddle in red fitting to her bike. She tested the only 115 gram light saddle on her hardtail on some rough terrain. She was overwhelmed by the comfort the saddle has to offer: „the saddle forgives much and flexes fantastically“. She concludes the test with a very positive bottom line and speaks out a clear buying advice: “ Tune knows to combine comfort, aesthetic, quality and uniqueness in one product. As each and every 20Twenty jubilee saddle is made by hand one gets the feeling to have something unique and nothing from mass production“.

Blackburner 27.5 AM/Enduro, long time test bei ride.ch

The Swiss mountain bike magazine Ride has tested our Blackburner 27.5 AM/Enduro wheelset intensively during the last season. The Tune Blackburner 27.5 AM/Enduro is designed for the all-mountain and enduro use. The wheelset offers not only a Tune typical low weight but also great stiffness and a high stability. Thanks to its wide rim it is perfectly suited for thick enduro tires.

The wheelset survived despite the „rough ride“ well. The low weight and enormous stiffness got pointed out especially. „The enduro edition of the Black Burner wheelset convinces by  good ride characteristic and the robust carbon rim.“
