Platzregen - a True Story
Marc Locatelli's comic strip tells the true story of his childhood encounter with Ferdi Kübler.
Ferdinand "Ferdi" Kübler, 93, is the oldest surviving Tour de France winner. His victory in 1950 was followed by the World Championship title the following year. A fast finish helped him rack up over 400 career wins, making him a national hero in his native Switzerland.
No messing here: the inner chainring is the beefier Record version with additional braces. The outer, however, has not escaped the pantographer’s deft touch. The GT logo can be seen clearly, and small, subtle grooves have been milled to shave grams without reducing rigidity. The “over the top” cable guide for the rear derailleur can also be seen which, despite being awkward to clean, did provide a smooth route for the inner wire.
