We started with a guided tour in the hub, telling about the origin and history behind this very special place, designed by the Danish designer, Johannes Torpe.
Then we took a closer look at the Argon 18 collection, talked pro and con’s for disc brakes, CeramicSpeed bearing upgrades and admired Jacob Fuglsang’s custom painted Gallium Pro from Tour de France 2018, Michelle Vesterby’s Keep Smiling bike and our joint venture project bike with Brian Holm and 12.16.
Our Head Mechanic, Danny Skovgren, who is also a mechanic at the Danish National Team, held a small “how-to-session” in the workshop. Telling about how to maintain a road bike during wintertime and other useful insights on technicalities on a bike.
Bike fitting is the talk of the town these days and also at the event. There were quick questions on how to adjust the bike and the need of expensive bike fits. Danny Skovgren could then tell about our new product in United Cycling: BikeFit Scan.
We recognize, that some people have biomechanical issues that cause them serious problems on the bike. But proper positioning on the bike has been made into science… We have, together with Rune Larsen, owner of AimHigh and former coach at Pro Team Astana, developed a BikeFit Scan – a light version of a bike fit. We adjust the bike to you, so your positioning is optimal. All screenings are filmed and sent to AimHigh, who verifies the screening. If considered, that you would benefit from a full bike fit, you’ll be referred to AimHigh, where you’ll get the BikeFit Scan refunded in the price of a full bike fit.
On the 1st floor in the Lab & Store, we have 15 high-tech Wattbike trainers are lined up. Actually, they are the most accurate on the market, and because of that the only ones approved by UCI for test usage.
We have already several sessions a week with teams and communities visiting our Wattbike Center. We are pretty sure, that several of Allerød Cycling Club’s member will follow and join each other for a solid Wattbike session.
Dinner and Lectures
Next to the showroom, we have a room for approx. 50 eating guests. Here our colleague, former professional cyclist, Mark Sehested, held a short lecture, telling about life as a professional cyclist. This caused many laughs and questions, which added which contributed to the already happy and encouraged mood, while the food could be enjoyed in a cozy company.
