they say that winners don't quit.
except for people who quit sniffing glue.
either way, there comes a time when it's time to move on.
today is Linus' last day at the shop.
as legend goes, he was originally hired as a child laborer at the tender age of 4 because his tiny hands were able to put a Shimano STI lever back together after some unwitting cyclist tried to take one apart. he survived the Pirate days and outlasted Bergler's reign of terror. (actually, i don't think he was working at the durham location when those guys were there.) either way, he's built enough wheels for team members that you'd think a bicycle has more than two wheels (here's a riddle: a bicycle only has two wheels, but how many wheels does a bicycle need? answer: lots, if you count race wheels, training wheels, aero wheels, climbing wheels, extra training wheels, what am i forgetting?)
what's next for Linus?
we'll see. but in the meantime, please leave him a nice word in the comments section, or recount your favorite shop-related experience with him.
