  • Matt Wood

    I grew up mountain biking with my family and friends, and the passion for the sport was soon ignited when in high school I was lucky enough to join the NICA high school racing league where I raced through the years, leading my team to 3 state championships. I then began coaching professionally with the Boulder, Colorado Based SMBA race team, spreading my love for the sport. Ive worked as a race mechanic, shop guy and general bikes man in many different places and am stoked to help you find exactly the bike you are looking for!

    Matt is great to work with.
    Matt set me up with the exact bike I was looking for. The whole process was super quick and easy. I most cases I prefer to shop local, but this felt just like visiting a local bike shop. It was great to have someone to talk to and ask questions. Thanks for your help Matt! I am looking forward to getting the bike.

    I had been looking for a bike for weeks. I looked at probably 1000 bikes and finally came across the curated cycling site. I'm very happy I did. Matt was super helpful and responsive! He answered all my questions and the site was great! Free shipping was a huge benefit! I would definitely recommend this site to others! Thanks! -Jerry

    Initially, it's a weird setup....
    Once you talk to Matt, it's like talking to an old buddy - like someone you've known for a while. I peppered Matt with questions and I really wasnt sure which way to go - but he had the answers and sometimes, he was at the hardware store - or I was getting in my truck to head to a meeting. As we went through our day, I'd text him questions and then we'd talk at the end of the day. Super helpful!

    Trust this man! He won’t steer you wrong and will help every step of the way to ensure that your bike choice maximizes your stoke!
    I was a pain in the ass customer. I didn’t trust the service, constantly asked questions, often early am and late pm. Matt needs to sleep more, but my questions were always answered conversationally with ridiculous speed. Since I’m a pain in the ass customer, I had to verify and double check everything, down to the location of Curated HQ, all their reviews, how the business works, how they got Matt...all the paranoid questions before buying a bike on the internet. After much to-do and with the hesitation of a first-time web user, I pulled the trigger on a dream bike. It was at my door in 5 days and I rode it all weekend until I flattened the tires, laughing like a maniac, only bummed that the bike shops were closed Sunday evening and I had to wait to get new tubes. Seriously, Matt knows his shit and is a seriously cool dude. I would recommend that anyone buy a bike from him. Thanks homie.

    Matt is awesome
    What can I say? He put up with my questions and could discuss the bikes on a knowledgeable level. Even understood what the difference in geometry from bike to bike meant to the fit and function. Listened to what I thought and helped to arrive at a great solution. Didn’t try to sell me a bike. But did try very much to help me find the right bike. We did that. You can bet I’ll be back.

    Nope
    Don’t recommend. Specialist was unknowledgeable and didn’t do his research as stated. Complicated communication and the specialist recommended and sold me the wrong part. DEFINITELY recommend traveling to a local bike shop, even if you live far away like me! This is not a good setup!!!

    Pointed me in the right direction
    Matt got me a good deal on some parts and pointed out something about tires I would not have found on my own. Helped my find a compatible dropper post. He mixed up on some brand tech, but overall a good experience.
