About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.
Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.
Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

One of an uncountable, beautiful, wooden bridges with an unbeatable view along the bike path Frame: Norco Monterey (originally a hybrid) Stem: Threaded to threadless adaptor with Tehet 100mm Stem Handlebar: Bontrager 44cm "anatomic" Brifters: (Used) Shimano Ultegra (9x2 - yeap that's right...) Brakes: Tektro inline lever on the front brake Pedals: Schimano M-551 SPD Rims: Alexrims DA22 (with fairly big gage stainless spokes) Tyres: Continental Contact 700x28C Hubs: Shimano 105 Seat and post: Ritchey seat post with a crap saddle (needs to be replaced) Derailleur: rear - (used) Ultegra, front - original low grade shimano Cassette: 8 speeds 13x29 Planet bike freddy fenders Fun fact: I left for an 800km solo tour about a week after having built the bike as it is now with around (urban) 100km on the odo. That may have been madness, but the bike handled perfectly with not a single issue. I was very happy as this proved the reliability of my build :) (I was also very well prepared on the repair side) Fun fact #2: The front shifter is a double and the bike sports a triple chainring. The derailleur is adjusted so it's low gear is the middle ring and to shift to the granny gear I go in big/big combo (yes that's bad, but I don't actually ride that) and then "kick" the chain to the granny by shifting down twice (the shifters have a low gear setting). It takes some practice, but it works nicely. It's also fun to see it throw off all the mechanics that work on my bike (when for some reason I don't do a repair myself). Func fact #3: The brakes are "inverted", the right side brakes in the front. Allows me to hand signal with a hand on a front brake and gives me better modulation (I'm right handed) Not so fun fact #1: I don't think the Ultegra RD is liking the 8 spd chain. When summer comes and I switch back to the road kit again, I may very well switch to a 9 spd cassette and chain. Road config: when in roadie/commuter config, I switch the stem around for a lower profile and sport Continental Gatorskin's in 700x23C Winter config: I put back the hybrid (stock) parts for winter riding. (Frame is Ai so it doesn't suffer much) To be honest it's far from the best touring bike around, but it did a nice job to get me there. I also toured a 500km and a S240 in the hybrid config. I am, however, very inclined to get myself a LHT at some point. And learn to MiG weld. Boast it with heavy duty rims, Phil wood hubs, DT Swiss reinforced spokes, custom water reservoir. And steal front and rear racks. At some point I may also look into building a custom single 700c wheel "bob" for longer runs and possible errands to the hardware store.
