Payment is cash only.
The remaining bikes are found on the website here and here. There's a great lot of parts too, much more than what you see in the webshop. Most parts are half price.

I'm happy to already present you the first 2016 bikes:

- The Bridge Borough, very affordable, chic and "thoroughly British".
- The Tour de Fer 20 will bring you anywhere and is maybe best value for money in it's class.
- The Wilhelm 650B, not exactly a year specific model, but new on the website and probably not to be found elsewhere.

Enjoy browsing!

New Place
 
Artikel 
2014-06-12

As I am in a rush to get the removal done I can only furnish these news in German. Hope for your comprehension;

Geschätzte Kundin, geschätzter Kunde. Liebe Freunde, Radlerinnen und Zweiradbewegte

Wegen der anhaltend schwierigen Personalsituation habe ich beschlossen, wieder dauerhaft alleine zu arbeiten. Als Konsequenz daraus verkleinere ich auch mein Geschäft. Da ich kurzfristig mit einem geeigneten Raum und der Nachmiete des bestehenden Ladens Glück hatte, darf ich den Umzug der Velostatt bereits auf Juli 2014 ankünden: Ab da befindet sich die Velostatt an der Gurtendorfstrasse 10 in 3084 Wabern. Telefon und E-Mail bleiben gleich, die neuen öffnungszeiten folgen zu gegebener Zeit auf der Webseite.
In der zweiten Junihälfte bin ich ausserhalb der öffnungszeiten mit dem Umzug beschäftigt und kann deshalb keine reguläre Werkstattarbeit annehmen. Bei Garantiefällen biete ich natürlich im Rahmen der Möglichkeiten Hand.
Ich bedaure den Wegzug aus der Länggasse und es tut mir leid für all die Kunden, die aus dem Quartier zu uns kamen. Gleichzeitig freue ich mich auf das Neue und kann getrost sagen: Das Angebot bleibt in gewohnter Qualität bestehen. Sobald dies möglich sein wird, geht auch der Webshop wieder online. 
Da der Platz am neuen Ort nicht mehr ganz so grosszügig sein wird, gibt es ab sofort und bis 27. Juni eine Reihe von Fahrrädern stark reduziert zu haben. Keine Reservation. Der reduzierte Preis ist an die Bedingung geknüpft, dass die Velos bis 27. Juni bezahlt und abgeholt sind. Und das Ganze Donnerstag / Freitag 13:30-18:30, Samstag 10:00-16:00 (aber nicht mehr am 28.).


Auf der Webseite erscheinen die ursprünglichen Preise. Bei Bezahlung und Abholung bis 27. Juni gelten die reduzierten Preise wie folgt:

Patria Randonneur Rohloff. 3300.- statt 4290.-
Velostatt Elf Deluxe. 2400.- statt 3050.-
Patria Kopenhagen Herren. 1800.- statt 2390.-
Genesis Equilibrium 10. 1290.- statt 1690.-
Breezer Jet Stream. 3790.- statt 4790.-
Schindelhauer Ludwig XIV. 3700.- statt 4900.-
Pashley Guvnor 3-Gang. 1290.- statt 1690.-
Fixie Cyclo. 2000.- statt 2950.-
Caprese. 2990.- statt 3790.-
Caferacer Herren. 1090.- statt 1490.-

Ich freue mich, an dieser Stelle auch die sensationellen BROMPTONs als Neuzugang vorzustellen. Diese Faltvelos lassen sich sehr klein und schnell falten, sind bis ins Detail durchdacht und in unzähligen Farb- und Ausstattungsvarianten konfigurierbar. Mit dem Bikebuilder könnt ihr selber euer BROMPTON zusammenstellen und auch gleich den Preis in Schweizer Franken erfahren. Selbstverständlich gibt es bei mir passend die fachkundige Beratung, Probefahrten mit 1-Gang, 3-Gang und 6-Gang-Versionen und die Möglichkeit, das Brompton zu befühlen und sich ein Bild vom überzeugenden Faltvorgang und Packmass zu machen.
Am 21./22. Juni steigt passend zum Thema in Biel das Faltrad Festival. Der ideale Anlass, um die kleinen Falter in Aktion zu erleben.
Nun denn, viel Text, viel Neues und zu guter Letzt: Ich freue mich, euch auch am neuen Ort wieder begrüssen zu dürfen.
Beste Grüsse
Mani Grau

Seta

2012-09-15

Our newest masterpiece named Seta is an exclusive, fast and light touring and commuting bike. The frame is a prototype made from Reynolds 953 stainless steel tubing, fillet brazed and manufactured to our specifications in Switzerland.

For the equipment we chose only the finest and reached a sensational 9.84 kg with dynamo lighting system, removable pedals, rear rack and fenders - still using solid parts with classic looks.
That bike rides likes on silk, that is how we chose the name; Seta means silk in Italian.
