World premiere?

March 2nd, 2016To the top

Mr. Halbertsma, only 90 years old and the latest M5 Carbon High Racer customer! So customers of 72 years, 90 years! Where are the teenagers??

World premiere?Mr. Halbertsma, 90 years of age and M5 Carbon High Racer rider since last Saturday

The first metres on his new Carbon High Racer go astoundingly smooth. One hand on the handle bar, the other to adjust mirror and summer hat... And no, there is no need to provide tips for a smooth start. Just a few short trips to check if stem and seat angle are right and that is it. For getting these right a longer testride through the countryside is next, accompanied by his grandson on another CHR and yours truly on his own lime CHR. It is sunny, cold and there is a tough wind. We let mr. Halbertsma determine the speed and despite the strong headwind we are still doing 18 kmh. (11mph). On our way back we are having tailwind, and are cruising at 30 kmh. (18.65 mph)

Most important for mr. Halbertsma is a comfortable and nice ride and indeed: since very low energy input is needed on the Carbon High Racer this requirement is met. His cycling friends (all 80+) have an electrically assisted bicycle by now. However, not an option for mr. Halbertsma, these bikes lack comfort. By choosing the lightweight (9 kg) and smooth running (set of 28 inch wheels) Carbon High Racer he hopes to keep up again, without any electrical assistance. Up till now he used his 17 year old M5 Blue Glide, which is becoming a bit old and heavy by now...

For longer, multi-day distances the M5 Carbon High Racer is equipped with the latest 21 litre Carbon Tail Bag. It only adds 550 grams to the bike but helps to reduce energy input even more. The crankset has somewhat smaller rings than usual, to reduce the gear steps. With 42-11 being the biggest and 24-36 the smallest gear the range is huge anyway.

We are looking forward hearing about his travel experiences!
