Cycling Expert Allen Stone
Right before I bought kneepads... ;)
  • Allen Stone

    I live in Austin, TX with my wife and two sons. I've been riding extensively for the last 5 years (I dabbled in high school, but don't count that). We love to travel, so I try to ride as many different places as possible. I've done most of my riding in Texas, Colorado, and Scotland!

    I love the balance of art and science that comes with mountain biking. Finding a great setup and tuning it to perfection where the bike becomes an extension of you... So satisfying. Love that I get to help others do the same here at Curated!

    There is a reason for 5 Stars
    When I first started out I noticed that Allen had 5 stars no other ratings other than 5. I thought that this was impossible. After working with him I realize why he has what he has. 68+ 5 star ratings are well warranted. Allen is 5+ star in my book! He took everything I threw at him and had an answer and a solution. Wish we lived closer so we could ride together sir! Thank you for finding me a old man bike that will help me to accomplish my goals! YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!!

    Great recommendations!!!
    With so much demand and little supply it’s tough to find a bike that’s suited to your needs. I spent a couple of weeks looking at options that weren’t available. Once I got connected with Allen, he was quick to understand my requirements and recommended 4 great road bike options which were available to be bought. I ended up making a purchase the same day and really happy with it. Allen is approachable, friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend his expertise!

    Allen, and the Curated system knocked it out of the park.
    After 40 plus years in the Health Care Service Industry, I must say that this buying experience was incredible. I have owned and operated medical distribution companies all over the United States. When you step back and analyse what has taken place as a result of a devastating global event, those who have adapted to the new business landscape will be the ones who are there in the end. I believe that you are experiencing a new way of buying. You won't need to wonder the isles of a store, or try to make head or tails out of a sales data sheet. You will be employing a specialist, who has the specific knowledge necessary to provide you the best suited results. I find this business model intriguing and powerfully productive, for all the supplier, distributor, and the consumer. I just wish I had thought of it. Keep up the exploration in new business relationships Curated. And Allen, thank you so much for staying in your lane and finding the best suited E-Bike for my needs.

    Better than a bike shop!
    Allen did a pile of research on bike geometry to help me find the right bike. He even scoured the western U.S. to find a bike in stock once we had finalized the make and model. This was completely different - and better - from being sold on a bike shop's inventory or ordering capability. I definitely recommend Allen and Curated for anyone who would like expert guidance supported by research when making a bike purchase.

    My MTB experience
    Allen Stone - CYCLING EXPERT Allan reached out to me moments after I did my search. I NEVER before worked or heard about Curated. Allan was right to the point and worked me constantly till late at night coming up with several options for my wife and me. We ended up within our planned budget and sealed the deal. From that moment we got a constant update about the shipping status and multiple to follow up from Allen, texting website, etc. Everything worked like a clock. the Bike (pre-owned) came in a new boxed fully protected, clean, and... with brand new tires. the bike where a match and we also got small beg with some electrolytes, bottles, and an extra screwdriver. Bottom line: I was speechless with the entire experience - Top notch. I'll definitely use them again. Thank you, Allen.

    Allen has helped me through this entire experience. As a person who is relatively new to mountain biking, there is no better person who I can think of to help someone through buying a mountain bike. I appreciate all of the help he has given me throughout the experience, and would recommend him 100%.

    Allen is awesome!
    I spent days trying to find a specific bike anywhere in my state. It is back-ordered everywhere. I tried curated and Allen found me exactly what I wanted inside of 2 hours! He even arranged for shipping and to have the bike built at a local shop for me. Full service, fast, amazing.

    This experience has been amazing. Allen was a great help and not only helped me find what I was looking for but helped me understand why I was looking for these things. Definitely will be a returning customer. This website gives you a bike store type feel.

    Allen profiles well!
    I gave Allen several "wants" to go by: Carbon frame, 29" wheels, 1x chainring, front suspension, etc. He listened, asked pointed questions, and took it from there. Every one of his suggested picks had every item I said was important to me!
