Meet Stefan & Maurice – Absolute test riders

Meet our test duo Maurice Vrijmoed & Stefan Vreugdenhil, leading men behind the successful bike store Service Koers. Absolute Cycling asked these ex pro’s to test the A-One to the limit and they didn’t hesitate. 

About Maurice & Stefan

Both Maurice and Stefan have been cycling since their early days. They rode together during their U23 ages (continental team Van Vliet) and made it to pro-continental teams like Rabobank Development Team and Cycling Team de Rijke. Recently they focused on establishing their own bike store ‘Service Koers‘, where personal attention, service, the highest quality of products and sharing a good espresso are key to success. With their extended experience in (pro-) cycling and hearing their customers, they are extremely valuable in testing the Absolute Cycling One. 

Service Koers for Absolute Cycling

“Absolute Cycling asked us to test the A-One for them. Let’s not say that twice!”

High quality products

Maurice: “As passionate cyclists we know that attention, the right advice and products are essential for our customers. We focus on high quality products from premium brands like Specialized S-Works, Roval, SRAM and Ceramic Speed. We love to hear people’s feedback and current issues they experience. We believe that Absolute Cycling develops an innovative bike computer. Easy to use, great asset on the bike and reliable. Next year, we’ll be one of the first stores to sell the Absolute Cycling One, we can’t wait!”

Test rides with the A-One

We like to test our products to the limit. Our first test during the photo shoot with an ‘unofficial’ mount on the cobbles didn’t succeed while sprinting each other out. But it was great to have it tested! We mounted the Absolute aluminium mount and what a strong and reliable mount it is. We know that Absolute Cycling has a lot of great ideas to be developed. Innovation is key and we are looking forward to testing the next B-samples in September. We have about daily contact with Absolute Cycling about bugs, features and things that need to be adapted in the app or on the device. We can’t wait testing new functionalities that are about to be released.

Service Koers social rides

Stefan: “Recently we started socials rides on Thursday evenings. We didn’t know it would be a huge success! It’s great to talk to your customers, but it’s even better to do while riding a bike. During our social rides we let people experience the gear we sell and chat about it. We love all the feedback, receive both positive and critical questions as well. Besides that it is a dream to ride with a group of enthousiast customers! Since July we ride with the A-sample of the A-One and show it during the rides. In September we ride with the B-sample, with the latest and final hardware. Looking forward to see the reactions from our riders.
