Cycled the Galibier for my birthday.
  • Jared Fontaine

    Hi! I am a lover of professional cycling and training. I have been cycling well over 10 years and I usually go to Europe to see the Tour de France and the Giro. I have ridden most of the France mountains in the Tour like Alp d'Heuz, the Galibier, and others. Moreover, I have ridden in Ireland, Germany, Italy, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Mexico, Colorado, West Virginia and Hawaii.

    If you need any help with gear or places to ride, I can give you suggestions and talk about my favorite places to ride and gear to use.

    Jared was awesome!
    I've been saving up for a real, brand-new road bike for a while and was scared to pull the trigger because I'm new to the world of bikes. Jared was a HUGE help in figuring out what I needed. He asked what my ride style and cycling goals were and used them to determine what features I needed and what I could skip. He kept my budget in mind and was able to find the perfect gravel bike for me. He was even able to price match another listing for the same model and saved me a little bit of money. I'm really happy with my experience with Jared and Curated and will definitely come back when and if I want another bike.

    Misinformed
    Unfortunately the curator I was matched with was unable to listen to what I was looking for. When I asked for a certain detail, I was met with resistance and directed to another product with a higher price tag which was not what I was looking for. It seems as though he was more interested in what would bring a higher commission vs. a repeat customer. Too bad, for him I guess......

    Jared was AWESOME!!
    I can’t think Jared and curated enough… I am A novice when it comes to cycling And Jared walked me through everything, answered all my millions of questions, big or small… And was extremely helpful in educating me about bikes, tires, step Throughs, bike shorts, helmets, etc.… And indulge me in the excruciating task of finding me a neon green and orange bike that was an absolute must! Thank you so much, I will be a loyal customer forever!

    Best Customer Service Experience I've Had
    Coming in to this website, I knew very little about electric bikes, but I knew that I wanted one. Usually, I'm a little nervous when it comes to customer support, because I'm not the best at social interactions, but speaking to Jared removed any anxiety I had. They are very knowledgeable, very understanding, and very patient as well. They helped me every step of the way, and gave me a fast answer to my needs. I will for sure be coming back in the future if I need anything else for my adventures.

    Jared was great
    I was procrastinating the decision to buy a bike for so long as I was not sure what to buy and how much to spend. Jared took time to understand my needs and recommend a few options to choose from. I finally managed to order the bike and looking forward to trying it out in a week. Thank you Jared. Look forward to working with you again!

    Jared exceeded expectations!
    I was looking for a new all-road bike and would have spent weeks if not months trying to connect the dots online. Jared solved all of my questions and found me a solution to span all the use cases, and the related accessories.

    Jared walked me through my first cycling experience and stuck with me for MONTHS as i went through financial setbacks like, engagement, getting married, and even having my house hit by a tornado. A true pal here.

    Kevin's experience with Jared
    I appreciated Jared's help, but it seems he was steering me toward certain vendors that Curated may work with. That's fine, and I understand it, but it's limiting and it would be nice to know up front that's how Curated works.

    Crystal's experience with Jared
    Didn’t even know what I was even looking for. Jared helped find the right bike even went as far as to look up the area I was planning to ride to make sure I had the right bike for the terrain. Looking forward to riding my new bike.

    Jared is truly a Subject Matter Expert!
    Jared was an absolute pleasure to work and was extremely patient with me. We spent about time chatting over 2 days to find a great road bike and accessories to help me continue my cycling journey. With the current pandemic and dwindling inventory, I don't think I could've done this on my own in such a short period of time as there are so many questions when making a major purchase. Jared, keep operating with an excellent spirit! Maybe we will see each other one day on a ride in our local cities.
