MECHANICAL EXPERIENCE: Professional bike mechanic for over ten years. I've worked at shops that specialize in repairs, and get it right after other shops would give up. Frustrating, but fantastic for problem solving!
I also set up service departments that specialize in refurbing and restoring bikes, rather than throwing everything out and starting over.
RIDING: All over Southern California, with lots of touring up and down the state. Ridden road, cyclocross, mountain biking, and commute to work by bike almost every day.
