At first I must mention all the people along the way who support me by offering a warm bed, a hot shower, delicious food or giving me a ride, a smile or a thumb up.
….and many others
It was hard to find a trustful bicycle-shop ( like finding a good dentist). I finally ended up at Powerslide-Minden and I am still very happy with my bike. Not even one broken spoke so far. Jockel also gave me a good discount and some spare parts.
Reise-Know-How supported me with maps.
Mountain-Goat supports me with two chain-rings.
