We’ve all got favorite devices. For some, it’s vintage bicycles or race cars. For others, it’s first edition books or pasta makers. For me, it’s truing stands. I wish I had a larger collection but every one of my eleven stands is truly special.
I’ll introduce them in future blogs but today’s news is my new favorite. I saw it first at Eurobike in 2006, from a couple in Germany. Not before or since have I seen a stand so perfectly and thoughtfully created: up there with the finest espresso makers, for example, combining metalwork mastery, love of the process, and ingenious function. A device as captivating to behold as to use.
