Paul Smith at TDV!

So the plan was that on Friday 4th Dec. Paul Smith was going to be visiting Tour de Ville in the morning to view the shop and talk to Jos the owner about a range of clothing R. Newbold (one of his companies) he is launching soon using the Tour de Ville name. I was kinda expecting a stiff British gent, yet when we were introduced, he kicked off a great conversation in which we talked about his experience with a brazing torch at Mercian Cycles in Derby and also about him track standing his fixed wheel while having tea with Mark Cavendish, check it out on youtube. Throughout the conversation he seemed genuine and interested, I enjoyed talking with Mr Smith very much and his love and addiction to cycling was obvious and inspiring.
