  • Jeremy D.

    It all started with a chromoly bmx bike in the 80's that I ended up racing as a youth in Hampton, VA. Moved on from that to mountain biking- Something I still have a kid-like enthusiasm for, and more recently, have gotten involved in road and gravel riding.

    I am an active member of the Eastern Virginia Mountain Bike Association and support local efforts to promote responsible trail use and advocate for cycling in the community by showing up for clean-ups, races, group rides and other special events- Night rides being among my favorites. When not in the saddle, I like to kick back with a pint and watch Premier League Soccer like a proper English chap... Even though I'm American.

    I am a self-taught mechanic with multiple custom hardtail builds to my name and have become a trusted source to friends and neighbors who I have done maintenance and repair for over the years. I ride bikes. I wrench on bikes. I research new bikes and upgrades to existing ones. I talk with like-minded folks about bikes, bike gear and where the best trails are, then my kids tell me to talk about something else for a change.

    Jeremy was great!
    I wanted to buy my first mountain bike. Jermey was awesome giving me really good suggestions in my price range and what I was looking for. Had good insights into what makes a good bike. Very responsive. We worked together find a sweet bike pretty quickly. Landed on an Orbea Occam H30. Can't wait to ride it!

    Jeremy was very responsive and helpful.
    Jeremy provided several well-suited selections and was able to provide enough guidance that I am comfortable with the decision made. In the past, I have had to "try" bikes before buying them, but in this instance, I feel extremely confident that the selected bike is going to be just the right one. Thank you!

    Jeremy was exactly what I needed
    Jeremy asked the right questions and got me to give information I wouldn't normally offer up. But he was able to set me at ease and then share his recommendations with me. All of the recommendations are definite contenders on my list now. Thank you so much!

    Personable, knowledgeable, helpful
    Jeremy made me aware of some brands I had not come across, and seemed to be a good resource for “under the hood” knowledge like brand reputation and reliability. Although in this particular case I didn’t purchase a bike through Curated, I would consider doing so in the future. We had a budget for two e-bikes and then our situation changed so I bought one used mountain bike instead.

    Great experience - Knowledgeable/Personal
    Jeremy was easy to talk to and did a great job at figuring out what would be best for me. Listened to all I had to say and gave great feedback. We eventually narrowed down what would be best and it ended with a very satisfying purchase!

    Jeremy provided great road bike options
    I had been looking for a road bike for some time, using a number of on-line sites, as well as visiting my local retailers. I came across curated on fB, so I gave it a try. With just a bit of information about me and my cycling habits, Jeremy provided me with multiple options that were in my price range and appropriate for my needs. While I ultimately secured a bike somewhere else, I will be recommending Curated to my cycling friends when they are on the hunt for a new ride!

    Very Well Done!
    Jeremy is extraordinarily knowledgeable and suggested bike setups i was not even familiar with. I like to think I'm a pretty descent shopper, but bro... he's got me beat. And of course I price checked everything he recommended. Prices provided were same or LESS than I could find elsewhere! With service like Jeremy's why would anyone go elsewhere?

    Solid expert advice with a quick response time!
    I was looking to buy my first road bike and happened across and add on Instagram .. within an hour he already texted me and helped me understand which handlebar setup I wanted to go with. He even sent me a lil with a picture so I could see the difference visually. It was only maybe 6 hours later that he found the right bike and price matched it for me! Great guy and if I ever need anything later I’ll be sure to reach our to him!
