I met Stephan in central Wellington City today. Stefan is from Germany but lives in New Zealand with his New Zealand wife and children.
He noticed my Rohloff Hub, as he has a Rohloff equipped bike too. We had a good old cycle chat for 10 or 15 minutes. I am sure we could have chatted a lot longer but (understandably) Stefan's family wasn't finding it quite so interesting!
Nice to meet you today Stephan, it is meetings like today that make my rides very enjoyable.
