Xiquí and his Open U.P. come from Catalonia.

Sometimes, encounters could happen at better times… No bags on the bike, not much time to chat…
Still, Xiquí (say “cheeky”) keeps smiling and remains enthusiastic.

Looking forward to meeting him again !

Concerning tires too, one can try to pollute less !

Running tubeless:
-Prefer biodegradable sealant
-Pop tires with a compressor or a tubeless pump instead of a CO2 canister

Running tubes :
-Fix flats with patches instead of disposing tubes
-Do not throw away old tubes, many associations collect and upcycle them !
-CO2 canisters -even though they are recyclable- are pricey and not eco-friendly. A mini handpump will work as well !
