Ja, wir machen Workshops!

In diesem Monat haben wir bereits acht Teilnehmer. Das bedeutet, es wird bald acht (!!!) neue Räder aus der OZON Schmiede geben!
Es gibt noch Kapazitäten im Dezember- also jetzt anfragen, um noch rechtzeitig das Weihnachtsgeschenk fertig zu bekommen.
...übrigens haben wir eine Lackierkammer.

This image was sent to us from an anonymous fan. Could this be our new graphic identity?

Paint Booth

Dearest blog reader, among other new things at Ozon, we now have a paint booth! For our end product this doesnt make so much difference, our frames have always been clearcoated with professional facilities, but for us it means we can now do it ourselves with our own workshop. That means trying new things, more attention to detail, and a better ability to do custom paint jobs. Yay! And just for some color, heres also a panorama of Stefan on the Spree...

The Bird Wheel

We got a SAWEET writeup in The Bird Wheel!  The Bird Wheel is  site dedicated to Women and cycling.

Theres this thing about our bikes and women... Jens insists that more women ask him about his bike than men. (heres a pic of Jen's bike http://ozoncyclery.com/images/u2444.jpg)  So hey girls, do you find Bamboo bikes more attractive than Steel?  I'm thinking we may need to change our target market...

On a completely unrelated note, check out our first ever touring frame, poised for big adventure!
This bike will be ridden through Turkey, India, and southeast Asia starting June 8...

New Everything!

The spring is here and everything is new!  We've got a new workshop, a new name and (suprise) and new Blog URL.  But the big news?  Our Kickstarter campaign, currently running until June 5.  the purpose? raise money to build tester-bikes, that we can loan out to people for a spin around the block.  Who? anybody who gives us money of course! Heres the link: give us some Monay!
our new workshop

So as part of the Kickstarter-mayhem, we've been contacting BLOGS.  We recently got this (amazing) write-up in thewashingmachinepost.net.  Its a history of cycling and how it relates to Ozon Cyclery!

We've also got a bundle of bikes in the works.  We're making a Pashley-Guvnor copy as a collaboration with ST-37, a metal workshop here in Berlin (http://www.st37-berlin.de/).  See the coconut-lamp in the render?  Thats no joke.  Its already been made.  It's also gonna get hand-hammered copper fenders.

 Our intern Matt is also building himself a black beauty with cream trim.  We put on our thinking caps to contemplate the form of the lugs...
