My name is Tobias, I'm 34 years old and live in The Netherlands. For as long as I can remember I've been following the pro cycling on television. And every Tour de France I watched I had the same thought: I will get myself a bike. At last, some two years ago, I took the bull by the horns and bought myself a second hand steel Carrera.

After a riding this steel italian for a while I figured I wanted 'more' from my bike so I went on an 'upgrade' quest. I now own a Focus Cayo 1.0 (2012), equipped with SRAM Force. Just recently I bought a Ridley X-Ride for the winter. I just ported the SRAM components (derries and shifters) to the Ridley and will rebuild the Focus over winter. Not sure which components yet though...

This is the most recent picture of the Focus...

And the Ridley...

Thanks. At the moment I'm still building the build list ;-).

Here's a more recent picture of the crossbike which I took this morning.
