Come see the new Omniums colours for fall… Orange, blue and of course matt black all in stock now and ready for a test ride! Omnium is the new track!!!
  Back to the roots! And we’re not talking about #messlife Not yet… Ok, here’s an update about our situation with the store and the owner. Two month ago we got the information from our landlord that he will sell the storefront, that we could stay, but will have to pay 30% more rent, he offered us the possibility to buy the shop. We had all kinds of meetings with several people, even a long and good talk with a bank and started working on a Kickstarter project, that was supposed to start next week.

Mash in Berlin!

gentrification tuesdays…
  We just heard that our friends at Smart Deli had a rent increase from hell too… Those were the days, when we made this video collaboration together… Fun times! Never give up! Ride your bike!!!
  And always lock the bike to something, don’t free lock! U-locks or big heavy chains are the safest! And remember…
Our old wall by @everfreshstudio before the battle started… Some folks might say, that Graffiti is part of gentrification, but maybe you should #rideyourbike and keep those comments…

  Once upon a time there was a Velodrome in Schöneberg. Opened in 1959, it was a popular outdoor track in the central part of Berlin. Abandoned in the 90’s and demolished in 2005 to make space for a big furniture chain store…
  Due to that whole gentrification nonsense we get to meet the most interesting people. It’s so good to see that not only our neighborhood really wants us to stay, it shows us that Kreuzberg is still very special, as everyday someone drops by and offers support. We had a meeting with a true Kreuzberger yesterday, he looks for properties, before an investor buys it, then leads a friend to the property and buys it. Mostly in Kreuzberg, but also in Wedding and other parts of Berlin.
  Sell your car, buy a cargo bike and #savekeirinberlin. If we sell 350 Omniums, we can buy the shop… Abwrackprämie calling!!!

  Feel free to download and distribute, please add #savekeirinberlin… Thanks for the massive response to our Instagram post. You could all immensely help, just talking about and promoting our situation. We will be starting some crowdfunding  thing at one point. Remember always ride your bike, as cycling not only unites! Don’t let Berlin become the  new Brooklyn, this is not America! And who would’ve thought that… Check our FB site too!!! Oyasumi nasai!
  Last week our landlord informed us, that he will increase the rent by 30% and will try to sell the storefront. This will lead to the end of Keirin Berlin. We don’t have rich parents, nor do we have lots of cash on Swiss bank-accounts. Moving is not really an option, as Berlin gets sold to investors and it’s only a matter of time till not only Kreuzberg is the new Brooklyn… When we moved here in 2004, they begged us to take this place and gave us a 50% reduce on the rent.
  You know it! Tomorrow its on… Live at Keirin!!!
  A little throwback to 2008, when Timo Scholz won the Berlin Sixdays with our wheels! Booom Boom! Everyday new pictures around Keirin Berlin! Check us on Instagram here…
