I’m Jean Michel Timmermans. Under the brand TIM TAS & REK I manufacture custom bags and racks for randonneur and porteur bikes in the historic town of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
Being an avid rider, I’m always exploring new options and solutions which I personally put to the test on long rides under various conditions. Being a small company, I’m able to treat every customer with personal care.
For my racks I love to work with stainless steel. It’s a truly beautiful, durable and strong material. Using bolting techniques to assemble the rack parts allows for flexible applications and easier customization.
My bags are made of waxed canvas, a similarly durable and resilient material to make contemporary bags of timeless design.
