Avocation: It all started sometime during 1982, while living in Germany, when I wrote a specification sheet for my first custom dream bike, based on a Diamond Back Turbo BMX frame and fork.
Occupation: By 1997, I had begun to earn paychecks by writing specification sheets for Diamondback road and mountain bicycles in California, some of which became dream bikes for other cycling enthusiasts.
Relocation: After moving to Switzerland in 2008, I grew fascinated with Ferraroli, a manufacturer who built incredible road and mountain bicycles here during the formative period in which my avocation for cycling gradually became my occupation: between 1982 and 1997.
Fascination: Now, in 2015, I am beginning this blog to share knowledge of, and love for, these wonderful Swiss Bikes with fellow vintage, classic, retro and cult bicycle enthusiasts. I trust that through exploring these pages, you will also develop a fascination for Ferraroli.
