Veloheld p1.10

I was doing a 10 month study abroad stint in Freiburg Germany and purchased this from a German company named Veloheld ( early 2008 as a city commuter. This is one of their earlier designs.

This bike was utilitarian. Nothing at all that unique about it. It's a bunch of stronger, heavy off brand components, but the bike always seemed to get a lot of looks and local bike shops seemed to like it. The Formula hubs roll very well.

I enjoyed riding it up into the hills around the city, though I just barely made it up some of the inclines, and even would take it down some of the better maintained hiking trails. (It surely was not designed for this, but it did well).

I was planning on flipping the bike before I left Germany, but I grew so attached to it over time that I brought it home with me, where I have since modified it.
