Paris-Brest-Paris with M5 Recumbents!

August 14th, 2007To the top
Paris-Brest-Paris with M5 Recumbents!During the upcoming Paris-Brest-Paris race from August 20 to 24 2007 a large number of people will participate on an M5 recumbent. During this non-stop monster trip quite a lot of riders will use our latest model, the M5 Carbon High Racer.

Participants from our region (Zeeland, the south west of the Netherlands) are Mr. J. Bouman from Goes (age 65 plus) with an M5 City Cruiser/Tail Bag, Perry Stoel from Grijpskerke with an M5 Carbon High Racer/Tail Fairing and Rob Stricker from Zoutelande with an M5 CrMo Shock Proof 559 and Tijmen Hoeven, at the moment living in Zaandam, with an M5 Carbon High Racer/Tail Bag combination.

Also worth mentioning is the Australian participant Andrew Heard, who already was preparing for this PBP for three years. During his holiday in England M5 Titanium Shock Proof 451 was stolen ... To compensate his loss a little, we decided to offer him an identical replacement to enable him to participate after all.

Other participants are also supported with things like fast wheels and/or Tailfairing to reach a better placement.

Stefan Vanlerberghe on behalf of M5 on a High Racer

Vikingtour 2007Stefan Vanlerberghe from Belgium did participate for M5 in the Viking Tour 2007 in Norway and did also very good going up the mountains. During the Vikingtour not the whole trip is timed, but only certain parts of it. Unfortunately the parts which are most suitable for recumbents weren't... Nevertheless Stefan managed to get the best out of it, also during steep climbing.

February 9th, 2007To the top

Light weight front and rear hubs with flange

(Pictures will follow later)

General
The newly developed light weight hubs are both fully built from alu 7075-T6. The hubs are like our lightweight crankset constructed according to the FEM method. For an extra price both the front and rear hub can be equipped with ceramic bearings. There's no body weight limitation for the hubs.Available with body which fits Shimano or Campagnolo

Front hub
The new M5 front hub with flange only weighs 33 grammes. Available with 16, 20 or 24 holes. Assemblingwidth is 100 mm.

Rear hub

Another sample of "light and yet stiff": the M5 rear hub of 167 grammes. Available with 20,24 or 28 holes. The axle is 15 mm in diameter and has quadruple bearings. Additional advantage is that the whole hub system has become more stiff because the left bearing is situated as close as possible to the left dropout. Assemblingwidth: 130 or 135 mm. Flangewidth: 56 mm. When ceramic bearings are used, the weight is reduced to 159 grammes!
