    Hello from france

    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.

    Hola!!!!

    I am flying over there on Monday. My eldest son and I will be riding our bikes in and around Marselle for a few days before moving on to Barcellona.
    Nice to meet you.

    Living in the wonderful Alps, I'm so envious.

    You'll enjoy this site and no matter what bike you have, someone out there will have some experience to share in the maintenance section for you.

    Welcome

    So let me get this straight, somebody goes to a forgien country with a bicycle, and they don't know how to fix it if it breaks(and I will also include any tweaks and adjustments). Then they bring it to you, and expect you to know everything about every bike and component. And you don't punch them? I suppose you have to have all the tools too?

    Welcome! I'm so jealous! I'll have to remember your name for when I visit there again. The Alps are beautiful although climbing them might be less than beautiful when my legs are burning and I want to cry.
