Tyr in stock

Tyr C38 & C55 2013 in stock, T55 rims also in stock but we await spoke delivery and expect to be able to ship wheels to clients around April 7-10. These days are pretty hectic with efforts to ship pre-ordered wheels. Please bear with us that no shipping will take place during March 28 and April 3 due to the Easter weekend and the fact we are training hard/testing wheels at Majorica. All the best – Govest.

Awaiting wheelsets…

The 2012 year model of Tyr has finally arrived in Gothenburg, for almost a week now they have been stuck in a container or similar. Pretty frustrating when something is coming from other side of the world in a boat and there will be a week delay for some paperwork when everything is so close. But to get loose of that frustration we did some intervals in a 90 meters altitude hill. With parts of the Conti Test Team The […]

Conti Test Team – count down

Conti Test Team is the new team to bee seen at the Swedish racing scene this season. Today’s session with 9 team members (Out of 20) was one of the most laid back with 93 km at a steady pace. Simply because the main aim was to have a great photo session as well. April 8 and we got a sunny day. Still the temperature refuse to climb to two digit figures. Once the photo shooting was done our youngsters came alive. […]

March 3 – New club Conti Test Team welcome spring

Second outdoor distance with new club Conti Test Team (CTT). 15 keen cyclists showed up for a chilly (+2-6 C), windy but sunny distance session. As always with CTT sessions, one can be sure that the average speed will be higher than expected. This was also the case today. 121 km with an average speed of 35.0 km/h. Really good having in mind a lot of things can be tuned. Such as using a road bike rather than a Cyclo cross, high profile wheels (Thor A3.0 […]

Carbon clinchers soon in the shop – TYR 2012!

Finally we are pleased to announce the details of Tyr 2012 carbon clincher wheelsets. The past 4 months have been a test period. Cold and unfriendly environment in Sweden, somewhat better cycling in Cyprus and indoor sessions. Comparing the 2011 model with the new 2012 rim prototypes. Although Tyr 2011 got very positive rider feedback, a positive independent test in the Swedish leading cycle magazine Kadens (No 10, 2011) and our thumbs up due to our own punishment , we very seldom stay […]

Cyprus part2: Time to collect altitude

Today on Cyprus there was some serious climbing to be done. Normally wintertime I would like to collect miles, especially when abroad as in Sweden the weather can be somewhat harsh and doing it difficult on longer rides. But also in Sweden, Gothenburg, we don’t have these climbs so it is hard not to do them. Highest peak was approximately 1250 hm (altitude), climbing almost all way from Larnaca. The last 10-20km with a 7-11% grade and then a similar […]

Alternative to turbo trainers

Christmas time this year means Cyprus and Larnaca for my part. Partly to make a visit to parents and also doing miles after miles on the road. In somewhat warmer climates Sweden is offering right now, during wintertime. Yesterday on Christmas Eve was the first ride ever for me on Cyprus. A ride up to Stavrovouni chapel with a 650m ascent with a somewhat more stressed ride back to Christmas dinner with closed-down and bad signed roads. The weather for […]

Christmas Day 2011 – A fun turbo trainer session…

  Christmas Day. A traditionally silent day. However, due to a carboload session on Christamas Eve and a blessing good sleep, there were simply no excuses. The turbo trainer session started with a good 20 min 260w warm up. The Jamiroquai mix made it easy to feel alert. Now it was just to go ahead with the session itself, 3 times 10 minutes. In order to make the turbo trainer session as fun as it possibly can be, these 10 minutes […]

Testing 2012 gear

This was the second indoor session. Friidrottens Hus (Track & Field) is a 200 m track we use for indoor training as an alternative to the somewhat boring turbo trainer sessions. Our sessions start Saturdays 08.00 CET. A kind of cruel time for maximum efforts. Nevertheless, 310 laps (62 km) in 1 hour 40 minutes with an average speed of 37.0 km/h was good enough. Today was also about testing the to be 2012 carbon clincher wheelsets.   We test a […]

Ridea Ovalised Chainrings – 3-5% more power output!

Bad knees, a dream to become a better climber, or simply to get a smoother cadence on the flat? Ovalised chainrings have been available for a long time now, in different shapes. Theory is simple. The anatomy of a cyclist result in two dead spots throughout the circular motion. When the pedal is on the top and at the bottom. The cyclist is simply not able to generate the same watt as when pedals are horizontal. Round chainrings do not […]

CX-Weekend in Scania

The Swedish Cyclocross cup was held this weekend in the southern parts of Sweden, Scania. Very challenging courses with all kinds of obstacles and terrains.

Axel “Acke” Wannerskog racing in masters-class had a great weekend as well. Finishing 7th and 4th resulting in a 6th place in total […]
