Pic of the Day ebbs and flows depending on how much free time I have. I've been pretty busy working and riding, but it's a freezing Saturday morning, so here's a new picture.
Pic of the Day 24 November 2007 Chain Oiling
Italian team mechanic "Pinella" applies some oil to the chain on Gino
Sciardis' bike during the 1949 Tour de France. Rear shifter is a Cervino,
same as teammate Gino Bartali was using that year. Note the plastic rain
cape stuffed into the right pocket, (Lam?) brake with adjusting barrel.
