This world can heal. I'm absolutely sure. If that's what we want. The possible solutions exist.
Unconditional empathy + existing knowledge (swarm intelligence) = saving this planet
I am a Circular Economy pioneer and combine the understanding of modernity with ancient shamanic knowledge as well as my innate high empathy. I have brought these elements together in my circular bicycle concept SAYA and received the German Design Award 2024 for it.
Here are he good news:
There is no need to find the new rescuing technology.
There is no need o collect and evaluate a lot of data over years.
There is no need to push this planet to tipping points.
There is no need for us to be sick of stress.
There is no need for us to be afraid of the future.
It is up to us wheather we shape the future.
Start today, within yourself, with your inner personality development. Use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and make them your Inner Development Goals. I'll help you, take a look at www.nikolajmosch.com .
To everyone, especially industry: Do not confuse digital transformation with green transformation. Skip Industry 4.0 and start directly with Industry 5.0. Otherwise we waste valuable time. Time we need to avoid the tipping points. Once the tipping points are exceeded, there is no turning back. We won't recognize the world. 6 out of 9 areas are in the critical area. It is not an issue “for others”. It affects your food. Your drinking water. Your health. Your peace. Your existence. The Earth has already endured such crises four times in Earth's history. Compared to this, humans are just a footnote. And it is just one of the species that is currently becoming extinct.
Please look at it carefully, especially the graphic with all the red in it:
We save old bicycles from the scrap press and use upgraded frames, forks, cranks, rims, hubs, hub dynamos, spokes, rear derailleurs, stems and seat posts.
reuse. re-furbish. Remanufacture. Recycle. There is very little left in our bikes that cannot do this (essentially these are plastics). We reveal every small part.
The conventional bicycle is built to fail. We're going the other way.
Industry sells more when it invents a separate category for each narrow purpose. More flexible is more sustainable.
The most environmentally friendly product is one that is not produced because it is superfluous. We focus on what a bike actually needs and leave the rest out.
Nothing goes with anything, and every remodel is a drama. Anyone who has ever screwed themselves knows that. Modular is better.
We combine UpCycling parts from the region with many parts from Germany and Europe. It doesn't work entirely without Asia, we disclose the sources in a way that everyone can understand.
We would like to source our parts exclusively from democratically governed countries with high environmental and social standards. We disclose the sources in our technical descriptions for each individual part.
low in toxins
Paint chips in nature, toxic lubricants, caustic hydraulic fluid: all normal on a normal bicycle. Not with us. We want to achieve freedom from handles and hope for the support of the plastics industry.
We understand the needs of families. As an extended family of 9, we are just as experienced with children as we are with bikes. You can already look forward to our heart project children's bike subscription.
Man is part of nature and should not be processed like on an assembly line. Choose colour, wheel size, gears and handlebar type and use our customization service.
Sustainability only for the elite does not work. We offer something for everyone.
You used to be able to change a gear cable yourself. Now everything is encapsulated and you have to wait weeks for a workshop appointment. At mosch bikes, it is the way it used to be.
Our bikes are not just retro, they combine modern technology with proven durability.
With the digital product pass, we are years ahead of the EU law. We still have a lot to do before the smart factory, which is why we are starting today.
29er Bike SAYA
Wir retten alte Stahlrahmen, verpassen ihnen Scheibenbremsaufnahmen und einen biologischen Lack in Wunschfarbe. Dann speichen wir Schwarzwälder Edelnaben in Bio-Composite-verstärkte Buchenholzfelgen aus Italien ein und montieren darauf norwegische Reifen mit wechselbaren Skins. Du schaltest mit einer außergewöhnlichen 8Gang-Kettenschaltung und bremst mit Pflanzenöl.
German Design Award Winner 2024. Erstes Fahrrad, welches die strengen Zugangshürden des Avocadostores geschafft hat.
How everything started
The easy way has never been for us. We naively thought that we could invent some more environmentally friendly bicycle products. In 2019 we were smiled at for this.
Then we realized that it should actually be a new business model .
What nature teaches us
There is no waste in nature. Everything is used, everything has some function, some meaning that serves life. Leaves fall from the trees, feed small crawlies, are turned into soil, which nourishes the tree.
