New demountable rear carriers almost finished!

November 25th, 2011To the top
New demountable rear carriers almost finished!The new aluminium carriers are nearly finished! Currently, the brand new and demountable racks are
glass bead blasting and anodised.
The carrier consists of an upper plate (which also serves as a fender) with laser-cut holes for click-on bags. A solid aluminium
round end piece connects the carrier plate and both carrier stems by means of M10 fine thread
connections. The base of the aluminum legs are flat oval pressed for an optimal contact with the
frame. The carrier plate and the stems are glass bead blasting prior to the anodizing. The twisted / milled adapter is gloss anodized.

During one hour record attempts at Omnisport in Apeldoorn, the brand new carbon bike Moekkôkèn (Dutch dialect for "Want to have one too") was first ridden by builder and rider Bram Moens from M5.


Conclusion: The bike is incredibly efficient (read: "fast"), but the propulsion was not working at maximum power output... In itself that's not surprising given the short run-up period. Barely five weeks ago Bram decided to establish a dual purpose: a) The fastest possible bike, based on a two-year old drawing. b) Start training for the first time in five years.

Concerning part b: let's plan a second chance during spring 2012. Gives a bit more time for a more extensive training programme.After all Bram is only 55...

Robert Carlier on a M5 CHR fastest Dutch participant on PBP 2011

Superb results M5 participants Paris-Brest-ParisYou may have already checked out the finish times of the contesters, but the results are spectacular.

  • Robert Carlier did the 1230 km in exactly 53 hours, meaning an average of 23,2 km/h, every single hour!
  • Perry Stoel and Theo Homan (on Thys Carbon rowingbike) finished not far behind in a really fast 56 hours, 22 minutes (21.8 km/h)
  • Peter Rijk (74 hours, 13 minutes), Andrew Heard (Australia) 83 uur and 25 minuten and Rob Stricker (89 hours, 37 minutes) set another pair of good finishes.
  • Also good news: Andreas Koerner (45), one of the many German clients with an M5 Carbon High Racer (with tail fairing) has set the yet fastest time with 52 hours and 39 minutes. With 25000 km per year, Andreas can be considered an M5 rider that covers a rather large distance over the years. The result was that Andreas and also Robert proved to be faster with their unfaired bikes, than Hans Wessels, who was riding a Quest!
  • Arthur van der Lee, the unmatched North Cape specialist, did not finish the race, contrary to previous reports (he stopped at 320 km). Main reason was the excessive amounts of rain, which Arthur really dislikes....
  • Jaap Bouman also had to stop after 760 km, because his scheme was no longer feasible.

Arthur van der Lee allready reached Norways Northcape

July 11th, 2011To the top

And again an astonishing 30 degrees Celsius

Arthur van der Lee allready reached Norways NorthcapeAfter a last allnighter of about 360 K I find myself safely back at a nice hostel. My intention was to split the last stage of this journey in two but along the way people told me that the weather was going to turn. It has been quite warm here in this northern most part of europe for quite some time now. I reached the Northcape on sunday morning about 9:30 still under a clear blue sky. Shortly after I left I could already feel the cold en not much later it started raining. And it has not been stopped since.... I thank you all for your e-mails and tomorrow I hope to update the website with more pictures of reindeer and midnight sun. Read his experiences on: members.upc.nl/a.vanderlee3/
 

Coming soon! Dismountable lightweight aluminum rear carriers for M5's Carbon High Racer and M-Racer types

June 14th, 2011To the top
Coming soon!  Dismountable lightweight aluminum rear carriers for M5's Carbon High Racer and M-Racer typesWithin reasonable time M5 will introduce two new dismountable rear carrier types for M5 Carbon High Racers as well for M5's latest type: the "M"-Racer. The new carrier exists of only 3 different parts which are screwed together. All kind of click system panniers can be attached to this latest type like Ortlieb etc.
In the nearby future M5 will also offer carbon topplates for an even lighter rear carrier. Estimated weight will be a stunning less then 260 grammes rear carrier (with alu top plate appr. 360 grammes)

Because of this unique patent pending construction we can ship these rear carriers in a flat envelope!
