Mythos Saddle

Am extremely rare aluminium road bike of the German former high end company Votec, famous for their MTBs, big suspension forks and Porsche bikes. Just 7,7 Kilo, built in black, silver and yellow as a retirement present for the director of a Volksbank in southern Bavaria. The bike he always dreamed of, the bike he wanted to take across the Alps he could see from the window of his office. However, it was too late for him to ride this beauty because of his health, and so he sold it after a couple of Miles and 9 years in the basement of his house. I promised to give the Votec the transalp Tour.

What a rare and wonderous ride you have here. I am now wishing that I was wearing diapers when I saw this bike. Awesome whip.

Sweet shifting set-up.

And smooooth. Nothing ever

And smooooth. Nothing ever comes close, when adjusted. However, adjusting the mektronic is a little bit rocket science.

Yeah, looks like it requires some kind of key and a lot of manual reading. Happy riding!

Well, it requires some kind

Well, it requires some kind of booting process as the processor is on the front and the derailler is in the back, with nothing inbetween. It happens once every two years, but then you have to change the batteries and start it again. The small silver wheel on the derailler adjusts the gear changing, and it's quite hard to turn it with a hand. Wheel changes are not very pleasent. But when it works, it works really great!
