Piggybackriders - vsf fahrradmanufaktur


Manu and Magda are adventurers through and through. The plan? Travel around the world by bike for three years or more, visiting and inspiring school classes in all countries. Of course we would like to support the cycling crazy globetrotters with their project!

With our TX-400 we have provided them with a 26-inch expedition bike suitable for world travel, with which they are equipped for all adventures.

And they experience adventures enough! But thanks to the robust steel frame and our focus on quality, freedom from maintenance and durability, even Manu's daring actions cannot harm our expedition bike. While the 26 inch wheels with the Schwalbe Marathon Mondial tyres allow you to rely on quiet and stable handling even on demanding terrain, the reliable Magura HS33 rim brakes and the precise gear changes of the race-proven Shimano Deore XT MTB gears ensure optimum wheel control during spontaneous manoeuvres or adventurous descents.

And Manu and Magda really needed this control: In Africa they let themselves be pulled by trucks and in Oman they pulled a kitesurf sail in front of their wheels in order to be able to "kitebike" in the middle of the desert. Conclusion? Successfully passed all endurance tests!

Icy cold, burning heat, desert paths or muddy mud tracks - even under the most demanding conditions, riding fun and comfort do not fall by the wayside. After 450 days in the saddle, they have already covered more than 14,600 kilometres and are still in the middle of what is probably the greatest adventure of their lives.
