I have been riding mountainbikes for over 10 years. I worked for Trek bikes for 4 years where I got fully immersed in the culture and every changing technology of the cycling industry. I spent the past two years working for a major online cycling retailer, where I learned not only invaluable product knowledge, but in depth understanding of many of the biggest companies operation procedures. I was on a race team for about a year, but now ride purely for pleasure.
In the past 3 years I've owned 5 bikes so I have had time on almost every style of bike imaginable. I love bikepacking and anything really to do with riding.
