Skis and BikesSunday location:  Studio  |  9:10 am – 5:40 pm

  • Time Marker:  Four fittings canceled today.  Not surprised.  A three hour journey to get to the Studio; I was only 90-minutes late.
  • Overhead at the Studio:  Said in a thick German accent to the Berliner Bike on display at RSC, “You can make an offer…  but they’ll just laugh and say no.”  He said it in an endearing way because he liked the bike so much.
  • Overheard at the Studio:  I was talking with a traveler from Belgium today; we were discussing how some American brands co-opt Belgian culture, particularly for cyclocross bikes.  Specifically, he was talking about a US brand with a Belgian name that shows bikes that you might think are from Belgium.  He said, “Not even the Belgians like themselves that much.”
