Our photographer and slightly mad amateur filmmaker Magnus documented when Janne – Uppsala's most notorious pike fisher and a Pilen bicycle owner for several years – went autumn fishing. He then packs his bag full of hefty sandwiches with liver past and takes his Pilen down to Ekoln and the Gorran Bay south of Uppsala. he film is called Heavy Tackles, but is also called Pike the Movie among its fans.
We have re-organised the factory and streamlined the production. Among other things, we have invested in a number of absolutely amazing ergonomically designed mounting tools - screwdriver, impact wrenches and striking impact wrenches - from Atlas Copco. They are both lightweight and comfortable to hold and applies exactly the right torque. We have thus been able to reduce noise and vibration in the environment.
On 17 July, we visited our precious dealers in Denmark at Saxil Cykler in Copenhagen. The shop was warm and genuine, exactly like a real cycle shop should be. No gewgaws but only honest atmosphere and craftsmanship.
Then they entertained us to barbecue dinner and drinks in a pleasant courtyard in Copenhagen. We talked about life and bicycles, more bikes and then more bikes. It was a magical evening. Thank you, dear friends!
