If you have been watching our Spot Messenger, you will have noticed that we have not moved for a while.Â We would like to dedicate this period of idleness to Wells Fargo Bank who managed to deactivate all my debit/credit cards leaving us without access to our communal funds.Â They have “rush” shipped a new card and apologized for accidentally deleting access to 3 of my cards.
What does RTS do when not on our bikes.Â A fair amount of nothing, usually, but we were lucky enough to meet another epic bike tourist named El Turco, taking a hiatus in his hometown here in San Juan and his friend Niko living at the Casa Loca.Â El Turco is a bike tourist/climber/human extroardinaire, and when he saw our Xtracycles he knew his lifestyle required one…and so he and Goat rounded up some scrap metal and welded one together.Â Â If you get the time, you gotta check out his blog, currently featuring a great climbing video he put together:
Here a few of the pictures of the birth of an Argentine Xtracycle:
And after they got bored with that project, they actually started building a humungous climbing wall, with plans to make climbing holds out of epoxy and sand.Â (I didnÂ´t even mention the giant bowl they are building to skate on!)
