What are you best known for around the shop?

Why Bikes?

Since I was a kid I’ve loved the freedom and independence that bikes offer, even after getting my driving permit I was still more excited about the possibilities for exploration and excitement that riding a bike offered being able to get around under my own power, to places a car couldn’t take me. I also love bikes as a tool and symbol for sustainability that is accessible to people in so many diverse ways.

First bike.

A little green Ninja Turtles themed coaster brake bike my parents bought from the mail man. It came with training wheels, but they didn’t last long.

What is the coolest place your bike has taken you?

Bikes have been such a part of my life its hard to pick a single place or moment, but I’ve met so many amazing people and made so many good friends throughout the years I’d have to say that would be the coolest place, even if it sounds cheesy as heck.

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

I’d love to do more long distance trips to camp and try and get serious about doing some touring in the future.

Favorite shop tool?

Crank pullers are pretty handy.

What is your favorite kind of pizza?

Green Olive

Words to live by?
