And I'm especially glad he was able to help you out with the gas situation. Some of those lines are nuts!
I met Alain this week in Cali. He was very helpful in getting us squared away with tires and working with the folks at Asturias in Cali. I was able to pass on to him my slightly used (Vancouver to Colombia) Heideneau Scout. A great guy and very knowledgeable of Colombian and Ecuador routes. He hangs out at Asturias shop in Cali, and will help riders out.
