Criterium racing in Portland.
  • Joel Fletcher

    I started working in a bike shop when I was in High School and eventually worked my way up to becoming a buyer at a Trek Concept Store in Seattle, WA.

    I started racing bikes in college and now race at an Elite level all over the country. I have raced for bigger road teams in the past and now race with personal sponsors and support on the road, mountain bike racing, and gravel racing. I have had the opportunity to ride a lot of different brands, gear, and bikes over the years and consider myself a "bike nerd" when it comes to knowledge about bikes.

    I am very passionate about bikes and getting people on the perfect bike for them, their riding style, and the goals they have with cycling. I would love to help you find the perfect bike to fit your needs!

    Joel knows his stuff
    Joel was great to work with. He found the exact bike I was loot for at a time when it was impossible to find bikes. I had done my research and knew the bike I wanted, but he helped me feel more certain that I was choosing the right bike. It is daunting to buy a bike that you don't get to test ride, but I decided to take a chance. Very happy with my purchase. Curated, however, failed to give me any notification that the bike had shipped and it was signed for by a neighbor that left it outside in New York City. It's a miracle it wasn't stolen.

    It was a smooth transaction with Curated and Joel was very helpful. However, it is still quite an investment to purchase "sight and touch undone", we are hoping we will be very happy with our purchase.

    John's experience with Joel
    The assistance in selecting the bike was excellent, your attention to detail on delivery is significantly lacking. The bike was shipped to the wrong city. You acknowledged this mistake was on your end but stated you could not expedite the shipment of a replacement. That was on January 11, 2022. It’s now January 27, 2022 and I still have not received my purchase. A replacement should have been sent out once you confirm that the original had been sent back to you (this also happened January 11th). Instead, I am now more than a month out from my purchase date and have not even received a tracking number for my bike. The originally shipped bike was returned to you on January 20, 2022 (per the tracking information on that shipment). Offering someone a $40 off coupon on a second purchase when I still haven’t received my first purchase isn’t really the mea culpa you think it is. I would have rather you expedited my shipping so that I may have been able to use my purchase. This was hardly a good first impression of your company and I couldn’t in good consciousness recommend anyone use your services in the future. Maybe as service to get information on equipment, but I can’t even attest to that as I would actually need to see if what I ordered truly was a good fit based on your recommendation. Not that it matters. I doubt you really care.

    Joel was really quick to respond to my request for advice on an eBike. He really seemed to understand what I was looking for and his recommendation shows that.

    The experience of ordering a product has been very easy. I went out on a limb buying a new bike but I feel confident that I will really enjoy it when I receive it.

    Solid guy with expertise and patience!
    Probably took the whole day to get this done, and Joel stuck it through. Have a hardcore friend who rides, but ended up going with Joel's recommendation based on his expertise, patience, and being a real person. Not because my buddy doesn't know his stuff, but more that Joel made the whole process so easy, despite me dragging my feet. He found a way to make it work with my budget also! 6 stars brother. :-)

    Joel has been super amazing and UNBELIEVABLY patient with me. He understands that as a college student I was looking for something on the cheaper end of the spectrum, and he made sure that I got the best bang for my buck. Not only did he help me find the right bike, but he also taught me a lot about different types of bikes in the process. I feel confident in the purchase that I made knowing that I had such a knowledgeable bike expert as Joel to walk me through the whole process.
