From the North Cape to the South Cape
18,000 miles in 100 days, from the North Cape down to the South Cape that was the dream of the two British cycling adventurers Reza Pakravan and Steven Pawley. By making the journey in the shortest possible time they hoped to set a new world record and raise money for the Azafady charity to build two new schools in Madagascar.
For this epic adventure they needed the perfect touring bike. Reza and Steven decided to use the Koga Signature configurator to custom build their bikes. He chose a Traveller KS-TR 28 with rohloff and toothed belt drive.
During the trip, the bikes proved themselves under all circumstances, "Our KOGA Signature trekking bikes rode smoothly from the North to the South Cape." The two Britons had a lot to endure during their trip, with their adventures being recorded almost daily on their blog

In search of inspiring cycle images
For years Paul & Grace made bike tours all around the world, but in 2010 they made the move to a new life : This time not as a holiday, but as a multi-cycling project called " Bicycling around the world in search of inspiring cycle images". With this, they take up the challenge to photograph and display an impression of different bike cultures around the world, their unexpected adventures, contact with other cultures and cycling through monumental landscapes.
Paul and Grace both ride the Koga Signature WorldTraveller 26 inch (KS - TR 26) assembled with Shimano XT.
Paul:"We chose the Shimano XT configuration, because we can repair the bike ourselves wherever we are and we can buy many replacement parts locally on the spot. This has worked very well for us over the years"
Photos and stories can be found at Paul's blog.
"My son, my KOGA and me"
Last summer my son and I rode our bikes to Austria. He was ten years old at the time. He really wanted to come the year before. But I thought he was too young then. So I went by myself to scout ahead. Riding my KOGA WorldTraveller.

Together with the light specialist Busch & Müller, KOGA developed the Rayo headlamp. The objective being the creation of a headlamp that is not obstructed when using a handlebar bag and also forms a single unit with the rest of the bike. The extremely powerful LED and reflector technology IQ-TEC makes it possible to build together both the lamp and the reflector in a very small area. This has resulted in an illumination of 35 lux, more than three times stronger than the lighting level required by the German Road Traffic Regulations Directive.
KOGA's SoleMate pedal ensures that the ideal foot position is automatically adopted. The concave shape of the pedal encourages the pedalling with the ball of the foot rather than the instep. The pedalling is therefore made more efficient.
A hub dynamo provides power to both the headlamp and rear lights. A sustainable and environmentally friendly solution with the additional resistance being negligible.
The spokes are fixed by means of nipples which are guided through both walls of the rim. This creates an extremely stable and durable wheel.
The KOGA Atalanta is a multi- position handlebar, due to its 63 cm width it offers plenty of space for the hands. Moreover, it can be adjusted for reach, offering the rider a choice between an upright or a leaned-forward riding position. Depending on the day’s itinerary, the distance to be covered and other environmental factors (long climbs, headwinds) you can position the handlebars to precisely match the required conditions. The Atalanta provides plenty of space for a large handlebar bag, as well as a cycle computer or navigation device.

A luggage carrier from the Tubus brand is characterised by its high quality finish. The choice of material is also striking: instead of commonly used aluminium, Tubus carriers are manufactured from thin-walled tubing of the chrome- molybdenum alloy 25CrMo4. The carrier has a layer of plastic acting as a protective coating over its entire surface. The result is a strong, light and durable product. Ideal for the traveller that places great demands on their equipment.
The lowrider is equipped with an extra kick stand so that the bicycle can remain standing when carrying a full load.
Bottle Cage Elite Taki combined with Elite Lysso Alloy silver drinks bottle. The bottle is made from aluminium and has a capacity of 700 ml. The mouthpiece is protected by a plastic cover and can be kept clean. The bottle cage with its resilient plastic construction fits the bottle perfectly so it doesn't rattle.
