Here comes part 2 of the SWISS ONE. In the video of last week's post I explained quickly the story behind this BOTM. I had the build in my mind for quite a while but then after our Cape Epic Mixed winner Jeff broke his collar bone just 3 days before a planned video shooting with him, things had to happen fast. Instead of going to the Black Forest for action video and pics, it turned out that we finished all our installation videos for ONE + and U.P. which you will find soon on our product pages of the ONE + and U.P.

Back to the SWISS ONE: Not that it was in any way planned, but our office is close to many mid- and smaller sized bike companies. DT Swiss, Onza Tires, Parts of Passion, all of those companies are less than 100km from our office. The  later two even less than 30km. So of course that helps a lot in a last minute build. Actually, we finished the assembly of the bike during the installation video shooting which was somehow pretty stressful but in the same time super efficient. It was a very hot day, and we were running out of daylight for the video shoot but at the end - as almost always - things worked out well.

All that happened 3 weeks ago but I would already change three things on the bike parts. I let you know more about that and the detailed specification list in next weeks blog.

Enjoy the beauty of this build in the following gallery.

Hi Timo, they are not so easy to find as they are not cycling specific. Here is the link:
