About me & my bicycle

Sobre mim e a bicicleta (clique para abrir)

A nível profissional sou técnico de motas há 29 anos.
Sou apaixonado por bicicletas e um dos meus passatempos é praticar ciclismo em bicicleta de montanha , coisa que faço regularmente.
Gosto bastante de fazer longas distâncias e de percorrer novos locais de bicicleta , o que me dá uma agradável sensação de liberdade e prazer.
Ao longo de anos participei em muitas provas e eventos de bicicleta, tanto em Portugal como no estrangeiro , coisa que não tenho feito nestes últimos tempos e pretendo voltar a fazer.
Decidi comprar um Velomobile porque pretendo utilizar a bicicleta com mais regularidade de forma a fazer mais exercício físico, no dia a dia a caminho do trabalho ou aos fins de semana , mesmo quando está mau tempo.
O Velomobile é um veiculo muito confortável e eficaz , permite levar bagagens dentro da carcaça sem esta estar exposta aos elementos ou arruinar a aerodinâmica , podendo assim percorrer longas distâncias com menos energia e mais conforto que uma bicicleta comum , o que o torna num companheiro para novas e diferentes aventuras.
É um veiculo 100% ecológico e amigo do ambiente , pois não tem motor e utiliza unicamente a energia do nosso corpo , a única coisa que queima são as indesejáveis calorias que tanto queremos perder . Promove a nossa saúde enquanto poupamos dinheiro no combustível , ajudando o meio ambiente com menos emissões de gases poluentes.
No geral é um veiculo muito interessante , com boa aparência e evoluído . para mim é uma exelente solução alternativa de transporte.

Professionally, I’ve been a motorcycle technician for 29 years.
I’m passionate about bicycles and one of my hobbies is mountain biking, something that I do regularly.
I really enjoy cycling long distances and going to new places, which gives me a pleasant feeling of freedom and pleasure.
Over the years I’ve taken part in many bike races and events, both in Portugal and abroad, something I haven’t done recently and intend to do again.
I decided to buy a Velomobile because I want to use the bike more often, and less the car, in order to get more physical exercise, on my way to work for commuting or weekend adventures, even when the weather is bad.
The Velomobile is a very comfortable and efficient vehicle, it allows you to carry luggage inside the shell without it being exposed to the elements or ruining the aerodynamics, so you can travel long distances with less energy and more comfort than a regular bicycle, which makes it a companion for new and different adventures.
It’s a 100% ecological and environmentally friendly vehicle, because it has no engine and uses only the energy of our body, the only thing it burns are the unwanted calories that we want to lose so much. It promotes our health while saving money on fuel, helping the environment with no emissions of polluting gases.
Overall, it’s a very interesting, good-looking and evolved vehicle. For me, it’s an excellent alternative transport solution.

Bülk MK1 Velomobile

After Eggert Bülk and Jens Buckbesch started the Milan project in 2005 (which is still running successfully today), they started a new velomobile project in 2021, the Bülk-MK1. It implements a new space utilization and aerodynamic concept. The findings from various wind tunnel tests were also taken into account. Jens documented every step of the Bülk-MK1 project, then he sent us very detailed info to create a page where you can discover the philosophy of the Bülk-MK1.


A velomobile is a human-powered vehicle related to the bicycle, for everyday use, with a body/shell that provides comfort, weather protection and luggage space. Due to the aerodynamically shaped bodywork, you can achieve a decent speed with little effort (30-50 km/h on flat road). Velomobiles are very suitable as commuter vehicles, for shopping or holidays, also are a good way to clear your mind while taking a tour or a road trip with your friends.

Why you will love one

● Fun to drive with little effort on long distances

Environmental friendly transport

Comfortable to drive

You are independent, needs only your force to work

Good for training and sport, good for your health

People. Experiences. Reviews.

Werner Klomp, one of our clients, took some time to share with us his experience over the years with a few models of velomobiles.

I just want to write something positive as a customer of; In one year, I drove about 16.000 till 20.000 km with a velomobile made by in Romania, and that’s already over 10 years with a lot of fun and almost no problems.

The velomobiles are getting better and better, lighter and lighter, faster and faster. Therefore I thank the Romanian producers and off course the designer Daniel Fenn and also the distributor Ymte with whom I have also good connections. If there is a problem, what normally is small, the help from all three of them is very fast. I never had a problem that big in the last 8 years that I couldn’t drive on to the destination I want.

The first Velomobile was a Strada, which I drove in two years about 50.000 km and the only problem was the broken suspension on the back. This part made from aluminum was on the post after two days at my place to repair it. Strada was a little bit big for me, that is when Daniel came to and started to work there. At that time he designed the DF, which is like a smaller Strada, with the complete team from The DF velomobile came and I drove it with a lot of fun and speed, over 50.000 km in two years. By driving so many kilometers you’ll always find something to make better. All those experiences I offered to the team to make it even better than already was. The time goes on, people want to do their business to work, not always together, so Ymte started Intercitybike and Daniel is working for himself in southern Germany.

Daniel designed a new model called Alpha 7, which is a bit bigger than DF but a bit smaller than  DF XL. This velomobile is about 21 kg, which is 3 kg lighter than the normal DF, so as you can see, it is still getting better and better. This Velomobile is made in Romania of course, and at a really good quality. Also if the new velomobiles have some problems, they always fix them very fast and the customers are getting help. The Alpha is now also produced with tank steering, which is made from carbon fiber and very light.

At this moment I have an Alpha with tank steering at home and a DF that was specially made for me with special parts and special carbon fiber to make it lighter for me. This one made me happy and I drove 500 km already, with a lot of hill meters in it the last 5 days. The speed between Alpha and my special DF is almost the same, but for me the DF fits very well to my body, so I am very lucky to have this part built for me in Romania.

So I want to thank the whole team in Romania for their work, the good parts and the deliver … thanks a lot guys.
