Good day everyone, my name is Jacco and I'm from The Hague in The Netherlands. (Better known locally as Den Haag or 's Gravenhage )
I'm a 24 year old student, and as any good Dutch kid, I ride since childhood. So since the age of two.
Especially the last 8 years or so I started to enjoy it more and I am slowly looking for something else. I currently ride a Gazelle Orange Excellent from 2008. A 21.2Kg behemoth of a citybike in a framesize 65.
I enjoy riding all year round, with the exception of black ice. There is just something fun about sliding around in the snow.
In general I prefer my bikes low-maintenance, high-tech and good-looking.
I will probably be browsing this site the next few months, finally learning how to properly maintain a bike and reading gear reviews and browsing photographs.

A 4 year insurance on the bike.
