The Hunt Cycling is a full service bike-shop, independent journal and collective consisting of three cycling enthusiasts based in Halle Saale. We try to explore, document and share our experiences in the field of cycling and beyond. Besides drinking shandy, lots of riding and intellectual discusses about bike parts and stuff, we enjoy riding with friends and running our showroom and bike-shop located in the center of Halle.
This Pelago San Sebastian Street is a good basic bike for urban riding without any gimmicks. The spick, yet complex paint job, and all-black components create a subtle racer. Pelago describes the San Sebastian as “a straight-forward, good-to-go machine, but also [as] a platform for different kinds of riding all the way from porteur bike to a light touring to a track racer on the velodrome”. But it is also a good basis for an exhibition bike. We found that the nice Sim Works parts fit perfectly to the San Sebastian and they are too good to mount them at a display. Sim Works Smile handlebar, Rhonda stem, Beatnik seat post and SRAM S900 brake levers replaced the original setup with the riser bar and flat bar brake levers. The fast rolling adaption of the Panaracer CG CX from Fairweather should give you a safe feeling offroad and enough speed on tarmac. A classic Sugino RD2 MC replaced the original crankset to complete the exhibition bike.
Here is a short factory visit to see where the Sim Works parts come from. We are very pleased that Nitto keep their business running and give us the oppotunity to offer their fine handle bars, stems, seat posts, carriers and small parts.
