I am a veteran cyclist. Raced BMX first, then XC mountain biking. Had my first bike shop job at 16, but had been tinkering long before that. From bike messenging to commuting to mechanic then Sr Technician and Service Manager positions, my life has always been involved with the cycling industry in one way or another. My purpose these days both in the shop and out is quite simple. Help out my fellow cyclist in regard I can.
