As green as a lime

Bram's latest M5 Carbon High Racer

As green as a limeAfter two and a half years of commuting on an M5 M-Racer, the time has come for a fresh lime colored CHR. Equipped with M5's own 90 mm high carbon rims and hubs. Also, the latest M5 lightweight carrier is mounted (directly to seat). Especially designed to support top bags and also offers protection against splashing water from the rear wheel. Carbon crankset is from fellow recumbent builder "Lightning" from the USA.

Remarkable! Oldest M5 customer perhaps also customer with highest number of kilometres?

September 24th, 2013To the top


Nevio Scagliotti (80 years of age) from Amsterdam rides his recumbents 25,000 to 30,000 kilometres per year, ever since 1987!

Remarkable! Oldest M5 customer perhaps also customer with highest number of kilometres?<br />
The former drummer of an Italian band from the notorious sixties already lives for 50 years with his born and raised Amsterdam wife in our capital. Weather permitting, he is riding his recumbent. Being an Italian, he only skips the cold winter months, so he covers his huge distance in just 8 to 9 months per year. His bikes are an M5 28-20 low bar from 1987 and an M5 Shock Proof from 2001. It always strikes me how well Nevio itself and these bikes still look like despite their truly bizarre mileages! The low bar version has travelled about 400,000 kilometres and the M5 Shock Proof about 300,000 km. This is close to a return ticket to the moon! These are distances which make you dazzle, especially when you hear the rider has turned 80 this year. Nevio has always been an avid (racing) cyclist, but when he saw a recumbent on a RAI exhibition he thought: "That's something for me!" Especially because he wouldn't suffer any longer from a painful crotch, neck or wrists. From that moment on a lot of trips in the vicinity of Amsterdam and many trips to his family in northern Italy were made. When asked how long he hopes to continue riding the recumbent he convincingly answers: "I feel good, so probably another 20-30 years..."
We'll attempt to follow future developments!
