A legend embarks on the route of a Tour de France stage

The original SLAVIA had no rear derailleur, nor did it have the brakes we are familiar with today, so the only way to regulate the speed was by drifting, just like today’s fixed-gear bikes. “We thought about fitting a brake, but that would mean straying too far from the original and the bike would lose some of its magic,” explains Vladimír, who now intends to train as much possible on his new 18-kilo bicycle.
