Ah, yes. Pino was the wild man, the eccentric, the mad genius. Like Harlan Meyers at Hi-E. Even when these creations never become mainstream, there is genius in them. I'm fortunate to have a pair of Hi-E hubs, one with the strange Hi-E "QR". The same sort of charm as the unorthodox British frame geometries or the unique little fittings on French touring bikes. Doing something different and hopefully better, but better or not, undeniably different.
