Maté  was not born in Paris, he did not grow up in London, and he is not the product of a New York private school education. He has never sailed the oceans, or any body of water for that matter. He has had little contact with the academic elite of the 21st century, and can safely say that when it comes to day-to-day matters, he has seldom seen the upside of a downward spiral. Going left while looking right is something that has come naturally to this young man, hence his refined sense in all matters sartorial. He knows that a low-slung bottom bracket could be the potential answer to many of life’s key questions. He just doesn’t know which ones.
