I have to say, I’m pretty lucky to work in a shop a few days a week that has various bits of UCI and NORBA (remember them?) downhill and cross-country mountain bike racing history hanging about. It’s fun to walk around the shop and see the bikes, frames, kits and number plates from the various legends of our sport. It’s also fun to hear the stories and anecdotes from a wrench that worked for one of the top teams during mountain bike racing’s heyday.
I’m hoping to post more bits of XC and DH cult:ure in the coming months that I see in the shop (or until I get fired); which may be sooner rather than later since I realized today that I just may be the Bez of our shop’s staff.
I can live with that.
