Hi, My information is from

Hi,

My information is from 2009 when we rode from Bangkok to Paris, so it could be getting out of date. There is a highly skilled mechanic in Tibilisi whose name is Xvicha Gavasheli. We mentioned him to someone (via CGOAB) who also located him in 2012. He worked magic on wheels, allowing them to continue their tour.

You need to find your way to the nearly derelict velodrome (velotreki) in Tibilisi, and ask for him. In many former Soviet countries, people connected to the world of cycling seem to congregate at these old tracks.

Look at our blog post to see him working on our bikes as he does complete drive-train changes. We had planned ahead for this and had parts shipped to a hotel by UPS.
