frantic requests for parts from cyclists in a
half-dozen European countries. Road cycling abroad is immensely more popular than it is here, and more often than not when a foreigner comes to settle in America his first phone call is to Bob Berg hino. Fortunately Bob is quite a linguist; he does business in Italian, French, Spanish. Russian, and even Chinese. Because of its incredibly light weight, a Berghino bike looks naked when it’s ready for the road, but it's solidly built and will take as much abuse as a “truck.” Berghino likes to tinker with innovations. He built a bike only six inches high for Baron Nowak, the midget who was billed as the world’s smallest man. For vaude vilhans he also turns out one-wheel veloci pedes, probably knows more about their mechanics than any man in the country. A prodigious worker, Berghino has no assistant, spends a minimum of 11 hours a day in his shop. He probably could cut it down to nine if it weren’t for the wide-eyed small fry who drape themselves all over the place. And, just when he needs a certain tool, some 10-year-old has it outside repair ing his roller skates. The short cut is for Berghino to fix the skates on the spot. Can't Say "No" Where wheels are involved Bob can’t say “no.” Even as he was delivering himself of this lamentation a young mother came in with her baby buggy. “Something’s wrong with it,” she said. "It’s sluggish.” Berghino was up to his ears in work but he took a look and grunted: “Leave it here. This thing is too heavy. What it needs is more maneuverability, more speed. .. ” With Bob Berghino that’s the prescrip tion for anything on wheels.
