Actually, I'm not French, but an ex-patriot (american) living in the Alps over the past 3+ years. I've been active in bicycle vacations (I've guided trips in Europe for over 13 years) and have planted myself here among some of the most beautiful mountain passes in this area of the world. However, there s also good wine and good cheese....for the pasta I go back into Italy.
As for bikes, I enjoy the small artisan: I own a Pegoretti that is my pride and joy, and a TVT (remember them?) from '92 that is still a great ride. I'll get a ti bike at some point I think....Independant Fab I've been looking at. Suggestions are appreciated.
I wanted to belong to the forum because I wanted to be up-to-date on all the news/events and look for some mechanical help with some of the new parts every-so-often (as a guide, I have a lot of folks who bring their own bikes and alot of this stuff is new to me....seeing how they don't know how to fix their bikes when they don't break, its up to me then!).
Thanks for reading this and I hope to hear from you.
