Hello and welcome, I’m Olga Hello and welcome to a new video I’m Michel Some of you may know us from other videos We are on a worldbicyletour for over 3 years We cycled over 40.000km Today we want to show you our bicycles And which maintenance we have to do After cycling 40.000km Have fun Let’s start with the configurations We each have a bike from Boettcher From Germany It’s the modell Expedition I have a diamond frame And Olga has a step-through frame All other components are the same on both bikes We have 26” wheels We have a Continental tire at the moment I don’t know the name Top Contact 2 We also had Schwalbe Marathon Mondial This is the thrid set of tires now We like both companies We both have a Schmidts hub Dynamo The SON 28 We produce energy for our lights And for our E-werk With which we load our phones and powerbanks Then we both have In the front and back The Magura HS33 Rim Break We both have a Terry saddle Two different modells, i don’t remember the name This on was fixed with some glue After 40.000km they look a bit worn But it’s really comfortable, i like it I’m also happy Mine doesn’t look too bad. It’s a bit softer than Olgas I’m not too sure I might choose a harder one next time But i cycled 40.000km with it It must be good, right Show me your butt The heart of the bicycle The Rohloff hub Most of you may know it It’s a 14 gear hub gear Here are 14 gears inside The handle 14 gears Now we can have a more detailled look I start with my bicycle I have a nice flower vase here A selfiestick Works as a camera mount now I don’t like to cycle onehanded to record For pedestrians And a big one for the cars Mirror It was hit by a hailstorm in Mongolia Original bottleholder Jürgensen design From a PET bottle and cableties Here is a pirat He saw better times Tibetean prayer flag Yes, and some stickers and stuff Good shit In this bag are the cables from the solar panel Stuff you need fast Patches, tools and a spare tire Here are the two cables They go here to the front Into my frontbag Normally here is the front bag Wait a moment, so normally our bikes Have two panniers in the front and in the back On my bike an additional bag on the rear panniers One end in the powerbank, one in the solarpanel Two so it’s faster That’s how we charge our stuff A thermal flask, really nice Hot water when it’s cold, cold water when it’s hot One of our two locks Olgas is a Kryptonite lock That’s your bike! Now my bike First thing you notice I don’t have a real kick stand I use this Bamboo stick From Myanmar It’s the second now I found the first one back in France And replaced it in Myanmar This is how i hold my bike And it’s also a selfiestick On the top you can ut the camera Then you have this selfie mode Here my flag collection I started it in Georgia With this nice small flag I found it on the road And then i said okay Lets buy a flag in every country So here is the german flag And over it the flag of the current country Like they do it on ships Here i have my knive A pepperspray for the bears My selfmade bamboo rack from india I bought this piece in India And with these bamboo sticks I fixed it Here in the front is our hobo stove With which we can cook with wood This is how it looks, here comes the wood Put it on fire, pot on top, burns really well From here you can put more wood Here is some more space, with some rubber bands For snacks etc. Here is a little shell I think i found it in spain My light Mercedes star which isn’t a star anymore But a Dreamcatcher Here in the front The good old Eckhardt A seal which i got from my friends For the farewell 3 years ago in Germany Thanks guys, i think everyday of you! Here a little mojo from my mum A ladybug with cloverleaf That’s Schnuffi I think i found him in China Here also a camera mount Here another mount I can swing it like this Then put the camera from the downside hen you have a frontwheel perspective Also a nice perspective A little miror, stickers The Rausgefahren sticker An ear piercing from a cow From Mongolia To show my solidarity with the animals A number lock from Abus I thought it’s a km counter That, yeah I get this question almost everyday Or the people are watching our bikes And sometimes we don’t understand But then always at one point, someone is pointing on it And says something like kilometer Everyone is thinking it’s a km counter No, it’s my number lock Here is first aid inside, so Plasters Dressing material, painkiller Desinfecion spray We didn’t really need this so far I actually don’t know what’s inside. Me neither Let’s have a look, maybe someone is living inside Yes, this emergency blanket is also in it With gold foil i think Here these tweezers To get some stones out or something Broken plasters Not so much as i thought What’s this? Sellotape No idea And what’s this? Ah yes, this is a Tourniquet You know? When you are blooding like hell We also have a bigger first-aid kit of course If you want to see it write us a comment Then we can also make a video on it What we have in our first-aid kit Very important, my soy sauce holder That’s my bike And now What i did the last two days I maintained the bikes I changed some parts etc. And repaired That’s know, have fun We have a little oil leaking at the Rohloff I want to clean it now I will unscrew this plate To clean it underneath You can see all the dirt I made this once before At the beginning of the trip The Rohloff customer service said it to me Because there was also oil coming out And it got a lot better then Now again, let’s see if it works again This is how it looks It’s not really a good idea to open it Because dirt can get inside now No idea, i did it now I clean it now and put it on again As fast as possible This sealing Isn’t leakproof anymore It runs 40.000km Might be not perfect anymore But okay, i cleaned it now I put it together again Okay this is reassambled again Very clean, now oilchange Here The old oil is floating out Then next we have a detergent oil You clean the hub with it Then this goes out again completly And then You refill the new oil In both hubs i filled the detergent oil But i forgot that i didn’t put on the chain So i can’t really turn the wheel now Because i also wanted to change the chain So i make this now, i leave the oil inside It can stay inside, i change the chain Then i have a good drive train And i can spin the wheel to really clean the hub And then release the oil again Here we have the chaintool What’s the name? I open the chain with it Take it off Meassure the new chain so it has the right length And put on the new chain 50 Here it has to be splitted So the rivet stays in the chain Then you can use it again If you press it out completly You will not get it in again So now I have to check how far i am A little bit more Okay, new chain! Runs Now we can clean the hub I spinned it, and also the kids So now I can get out the detergent oil And fill in the new oil Some small stuff Greasing the lock Olgas side stand is a bit worn out The bike stands a bit too slanted It must stand like this So here is a bit more distance to the floor Our saddles Look quite used after 40.000km But still Very happy with them, they are really comfortable I fill the cracks now With this glue It stays a bit elastic So it’s really good for this I fill all the cracks now With the glue Now i go for the brakes I already started to dismount these Oil, two times oil One Break I don’t know Like the main break One complete lever Two times Just the lever I have to see if i can change it Some small parts I have to see, all brakes are not perfectly working I check them all now Clean them And then i decide where i replace what Here is the whole break now Let’s see if i can get off the lever You have to get this through it Then you can take off the lever There is a special tool for it We don’t have it and also no one told me about it That looks good I got it, this was the problem This piece is completly destroyed The screw is broken So this one is broken Here is the new one Cool, i should be able To reassamble it Great, what’s good about it I didn’t had to remove the oil So i can just reassamble it. I clean it before That was the first brake No i put it back on the bike And adjust it correctly Then three brakes more to go Olgas front brake We make it completly new A new lever and new brake And also the pipe So much on this topic To wear new clothes for working The syringe with the oil just kind of exploded I wanted to pull the oil in And then it openend at the bottom The whole brake oil On my new shirt Hopefully Olga won’t see it I have oil on my Tshirt We have Soda, maybe i can remove it with that Okay New shirt No i can continue This is the set up for refilling Here is the syringe with the oil Connected to the brake here And on the top, at the lever The hose Goes into this bottle So i press the oil through this So it comes out here. Move the lever sometimes So all the air gets out Great that looks good So i can take it off at the top Close it And than take it off at the bottom And also close it Okay, and the test What happens when i move it It moves Great, this looks very good Now the brake is still completly loose here I have to adjust it now To make it parallel To the rims That it’s close to it. Like this. And then tighten it Great, that’s it All brakes done Now i will tighten all screws And then i’m done So this was it Here are the bikes One thing is left I have to pump up the tires, but I don’t do that in the video now I’ll do it later That was a lot of work Maintenance after 40.000km Some thing which really had to be done Especially the brakes This was the first time i really dissambled them completly And cleaned them completly Refilled them with oil And replaced some parts This was needed, they are as new now Now the next stage On the wild roads of Russia can start I’m looking forward Thanks that you watched this, today without Olga A little bit unusual First video which i’m doing more or less alone Olga appeared sometimes i think A bit technically this video But i think interesting for everyone to see this What we had to do after a 3 years bicycletour To make our bikes like new Before i forgot, in the end now Please write in the comments What you think about our bikes Which components you wouldn’t choose Or if you are wondered that we have this And what you think about my bike mechanic skills! I’m looking forward, we look forward! To read your comments!
