Hey guys, Ive been to Rasmussen area a few time ago for a dinner with a mate, and as we were close to his shop we went to take a look (unluckily it was 11pm so of course closed).

Just wanted to share his shop pics as some might be curious to see.

By the way guys, the guy who brought me around that night is called Nicola, and he suffered a bad accident during a granfondo last May.
He got badly injured and actually he's on a wheelchair.
Anyway, he's giving me great tips everyday both on riding and on my next built as he's a true WeightWeenie.
He does check this forum almost everyday, althought he doesn't post as he's ashamed of his english.
Anyway (sorry for being long :oops: ) but I'd appreciate a lot if you could send him your best cheering.

Thanks a lot in advance! :D

Interesting photo's, thanks for posting. Tell your friend to start posting. Most on this forum are great at understanding "creative english". Spelling is also optional :wink:

have you guys called the uci to make sure rasmussen is actually at home and not in mexico?or in the alps?not that you wait until he arrives in the shop and you wait...and wait...and wait...
is your friend in the wheelchair forever or is he going to get back on his legs?yes, just tell him to write here, i think i could improve my english a bit here so it's at least worth a try.

Micky, is your friend in the wheelchair for the long term, or is it just necessary while recovering ( I pray that it is)?

To anyone for whom English is a second language... please don't let that stop you from participating. I, for one, love the perspective people from other cultures bring to the board. They are exposed to different locales, merchandise, marketing, brands, etc.

:welcome:

Im sure I can say thanks from Nicola for all the greetings, and he promised me he will start writing soon (at least for thanks! :D ).

As for his situation, he just finished rehabilitation as for being able to do stuff by himself, and about wheelchair it look like a long term situation.
But of course we do have hope he can be back on legs sooner or later!

But talking back of bikes, he's a major expert about wheels, and often told me what to reply at some wheels topic in here. :oops: :lol:

Plus with a "heavy" frameset (around 1200gramms) he had been able to do a sub 7kgs bike without any expensive components!

Welcome nicola, nice to have another wheel enthusiast aboard, oh and don't worry about the language barrier, most of us are well used to it. :wink:
My second language is French and i'm terrible at it! LOL
