    I happened to be at the Bike Friday factory for a tour the day he came to pick up his new bike... they had a little reception, and he spoke for a while about his travels. A fascinating guy!

    Great story, Thanks for posting it Machka! I couldn't stop reading it and was disappointed that it wasn't longer.
