Bike Mechanic


We talked about the Schleck brothers and their weight, about Chris Froom and his cycling posture, about likeable Sagan and many local heroes who never made in the world of cycling. We mostly talked about bicycle cleaning and the right adjustment of bike brakes. He has a mechanic shop of only 2 square meters, but he also has a dotted jersey designed by Mario Schifano for 1989 Tour de France. He showed me his training log in a notebook and ten years worth of training in it. He needs no Garmin. And my bike is now lying in a tub, not in a bath soak, but in degreaser, although Zoki insists on petrol :)

As a matter of fact, we talked about passion.
