I had the double pleasure while visiting with Juan to meet an associate of his, Mauricio Carrion. Mauricio has been living in New York City and promoting cycling there but has come back to his roots in Ecuador. He is going to be organizing bike rides around Ecuador. How cool is that! Mauricio is an ergonomic specialist so he works with Juan and Juan's customers to make sure they are fitted with the right type and size bike and to make accomodations for people with special needs. For example, I have a bad lower back, so he is recommending a more upright posture and hence a longer post on the handlebars. I don't think I got quite this much attention on the last bike I bought in the states.
