Cuba Photos

Cuba Ingenuity: lost en route, there was no faceplate for my Deda Newton stem when I arrived in Havana one spring, and my $5000 Ti/carbon SRM-equipped wonder-bike was neutered. Cuban mechanics stepped in, however, and for $2.00 forged a new face plate made of iron and steel (lol) that I used for the next two weeks. Coño!

Thanks to Chris Milliman for the photos he provided. And thanks to those amazing Cuba mechanics for saving my ass with their great metalworking skills! More Cuba images to come in the next few days.
