    Those Gedore cone wrenches sure looks nice. Probably a little bit over-engineered or bullet-proof engineered, like most tools/products from Germany. I wonder if we can get them here in the US. Also,...

    I agree. When I first read it, I stopped everything else I was doing to finish it. Since then, I must have read it about six times.

    Look up Andy Hampsten's rendezvous with history on the Gavia in 1988 on his way to winning the Giro. What stirring and toughness is all about.
