What are you best known for around the shop?

I am best known around the shop for believing 100% that a Specialized Chisel is the only bike you'll ever need.

Why Bikes?

Bikes are a great way to get some exercise and they're fast!

What was your first bicycle and what do you remember about it?

My first bicycle was a pink bike that had training wheels on it. My parents used different colored tape to write my name on it. It was pretty cool.

What is your favorite local bike ride?

My favorite local bike ride would be some laps at MB Johnson Park.

What is the coolest place your bike has taken you?

The coolest place my bike has taken me is to all of my different Minnesota High School Cycling League races. It is so cool to see so many people together to ride bikes.

What is on the horizon?  Describe your next great cycling adventure.

One day this summer in a single ride, I would like to ride my bike to each mountain bike trail in town and do a lap at each…and then do it again!  Two mega laps.

Favorite shop tool?

My favorite shop tool would be the bike cleaner spray. A clean bike is a happy bike!

What is your favorite kind of pizza?

My favorite kind of pizza would be The Backpacker from Rhombus Guys.

Any day riding a bike is a good day.
