Kalkkögel – Side A & B

During the last 2-3 weeks I’ve been hiking and mountain biking quite a bit, and two tours brought me to the Kalkkögel, a mountain range near Innsbruck that belongs to the Stubaier Alps.

In winter you can ski on both sides of the mountains – to the North in the skiing area of the Axamer Lizum and to the South in the so-called Schlick2000 area.

The Kalkögel also some amazing hiking and climbing trails, and as they are not far from Innsbruck, the are pretty popular among the “Innsbrucker”

So just to give you a hint of what the Kalkkögel look like, here two panorama photos, the first one – the A-side – from the Schlick2000 side, the second one – the B-side – from the Kemater Alm and Axamer Lizum side.

New Fixie – Felt Brougham

some things just take a bit longer…

already in December 2009 I ordered a Felt Brougham Fixie to replace my Specialized Langster New York (I somehow got tired of the yellow). estimated shipping: February 2010

in February I already heard rumors that Felt is way behind with the Brougham (in Europe) and in Mid April the dealer I ordered the Brougham at told me he had to cancel the order, as he was cancelling his contract with Felt as they were too unreliable (he had quite a few people waiting for the Brougham).

so that was that, and as a consolation I bought a Scott Scale 29er MTB – which brought me back to mountainbiking.

Now, after surfing around on the net for a bit, I saw that the Brougham is finally available, and even though I hadn’t planned to go for it, I just did it anyway…

so here’s my new ride….
