The Outspoken Cyclist – 07/21/2012

As this year’s Tour wraps up, we hearken back to the 1986 TdF and the drama that existed between teammates Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond. Freelance journalist and author Richard Moore has written a book about the two iconic riders entitled Slaying the Badger: LeMond, Hinault and the Greatest Ever Tour de France. It’s a well-written and riveting story, and we caught up with Richard Moore while he was in France this week covering the Tour.

We know that framebuilders build bike frames, but who builds the tools that framebuilders use? One of the people who makes those tools and fixtures is Don Ferris of Anvil Bikeworks in Golden, Colorado. Besides being a helluva toolmaker, Don is a really interesting guy with a knack for explaining complex concepts in a way even I can understand.
