Cerchio Ghisallo at Berliner FahrradSchau show

We are happy to announce our participation at Berliner Fahrradschau show that will be hold in Berlin, Germany from March 16th until March 22nd thanks to the team build by of  La Stazione delle Biciclette, Tiziano Zullo, Dario Pegoretti and others.

A message from the show Staff:

The Berlin Bicycle Week ad campaign previews today bearing the tagline “Cycling Unites”, and we would be very grateful if you would share this over your social media, including your stand number!

Cycling makes cities more liveable and above all: Cycling connects people! This applies to cyclists, but also lifestyles, cultures and religions.

In cycling, everyone is invited!

Therefore, the theme of the campaign is tolerance. On a tandem sitting together are Rabbi Daniel Alter and Imam Ferid Heider, both cyclists themselves and who work together promoting peace and understanding through their project meet2respect.

We believe this unusual motif should not be unusual. And to bring home the message, there will be a “Cycling Unites” Critical Mass tour at the end of the BERLIN BICYCLE WEEK, where 3 tandems, each with an Imam and a Rabbi, will ride together with hundreds of supporters to jointly set an example for tolerance, diversity, and the right for everyone to live (and ride ) in peace.

The campaign will start running next week across Berlin. The link to the Critical Mass:

See you soon,

Wooden MTB rims – Germany open country terrain test

We are glad to publish following review by our friend Edgar Jakobs about our MTB model clincher rims without Ultimate carbon fiber ring optional.
Rims have endured a test around 1000 km long, an additional proof of the fantastic performance of this product above all considering that it has been used on open country roads.

(Original article is available at following link::

Sunday, February 1st 2015

Two years ago I have fitted my MTB, what I use mainly for winter training, with wooden MTB-Rims from GHISALLO WOODEN RIMS.

The rims have no carbon reinforcements ULTIMATE OPTIONAL of the rim bed and are painted black. It is the darkest colour where the woodgrain is still visible. The wooden rims fit well with the rigid KINESIS fork and the black painted Stainless-Steel-Frame.

The tires Cross-King Continental are 55mm wide. I use a tire pressure of 3bar what is ideal also for riding on sandy ground. GHISALLO allowes a maximum of 4.5 bar tire pressure.

A few words to the lacing of the spokes. Because the braking forces of the Disk-Brakes must be transmitted through the spokes from the hub to the tire, on the left side (in riding direction) the outer spokes run to the front.
On the right side the outer spokes run to the back, so the driving force is well transmitted. Generally, the inner spokes can not transmit forces as good as outer spokes.

Front and rear wheel have the same lacing. Spoke lengths for the current SHIMANO DEORE XT hubs in the 32-hole version with 3X-Crossing are 262 mm (front and rear left) / 260 mm (rear right).

The diameter of the MTB rims is stored in the Spokelength-Calculation Tool.

The landscape of the Nature Park Wildeshauser Geest is characterized by forests, rivers and moorland. This MTB is ideal for tours in this flat terrain.

With cross-country skiing in winter, you can move in the Warwer sand. Anyway, the kids have their fun.

At the end of last year, we had violent storms in northern Germany, partially in hurricane strength. The bended trees, known as “Storm Trees” are felled by timber industry, then cut into pieces and further processed. The work isn’t over even now in February.

After the bike ride, a cleaning of the bike is absolutely necessary. The most important element is warm soapy water, a soft sponge and a brush for the pinion and gear rings. After cleaning, the bike (except saddle and handlebar grips) must be treated with bicycle oil or car wax, and we have to re-lubricate the chain.

Maintaining the precious wooden rims is very easy. GHISALLO uses special coatings from boat building for the painting. I maintain the wooden rims with “Homemade Furniture Polish”! This is olive oil with a splash of white wine vinegar. Have a look at the small glass in the Picture. It must be applied with a soft cloth. After an hour I wipe off the rest and the wooden rims are ready for the next race.

>By the way, I care for bamboo rims with turpentine.

After the cleaning of the bike it is time to take a shower and to prepare something to eat. In Seckenhausen you can visit, for example, an Italian cooking school! You can self determine what is cooked.

The following videos convey an impression of the MTB-Training in the Warwer sand.
The first is with original sound, the second is with background music.

Overall, the Wooden MTB Rims are approved. I rode 1000 kilometers during the winter training period two years. After 400 kilometers I tightened the spokes of the wheels.
The bike, and also the wooden rims, may not be ideal for MTB-Races in difficult trails. But for Bestager-Cyclists, who want to ride offroad in a sporty way, it is very suitable!
Today, however, I would choose the version with carbon reinforcements.
