Velominatus: Hasse

Order: Level 4 Velominatus

Location: Aalborg, DK

Originating from the flattest of the Danish flatlands, Ham Der (danish for that guy, pronounced "haam dér) climbs like a battleship and descends like an avalange.

If @steampunk can’t take much credit here I guess we can’t take any. We can take pleasure is seeing someone’s kid hauling ass on a bike, a Velominatus spawn, even better. We all came to cycling by different paths, seemingly few by our parents. It is impossible to outguess one’s children; they are clever little bastards. Hop...

  1. @Gianni A-Merckx!.. Rule #90 – it’s there for a reason! »

Growing up, I imagine my dad did his fair share of worrying about me getting into trouble with chemicals and girls. Like with most problems in life, the solution lay in Cycling; training encouraged healthy behavior and once my dad convinced me to shave my legs, no one needed to worry about the girls anymore.Cycling caused its fair share of problems...

  1. @zeitzmar Monsieur Leth.. He’s been commenting on danish tv for almost 20 years now, his soothing voice paired with the humming of the camera helicopters makes for the perfect soundtrack to any great race! He truly is our very own Ligget.. »

Disregarding my Schwinn Typhoon, I started keeping score with my 1976 Peugeot PX 10 LE. It came with a Stronglight 52 x 45 and a 14 x 21 five speed freewheel. I always thought this Peugeot was set up for the pavé of northern France with those gears and wire-wrapped and soldered 3x tubular wheels. Yet according to Peugeot’s advertising, this...
