"The next time we get on a bike to  teach a class or simply to ride for our own solo fulfillment - let's take that extra breath before we begin and let the exhale carry the life Jeff brought to cycling.

 

May his family and friends take comfort as each day passes that we will all take an extra breath for Jeff."

I HIRE  I  I FIRE  I  I BITCH  I  I RIDE & TUNE EVERY BIKE WE SERVICE. EVERY BIKE WE SELL IN OUR STORES AND OUR WEBSITE AND EVERY BIKE WE INSTALL INTO GRADE A FITNESS FACILITIES. I WRITE EVERY WORD FOUND IN MY TECH MANUALS AND I'VE SET THE BAR SO HIGH THAT SOMETIMES EVEN I AM DRIVEN TO THE BRINK BY MY OWN INABILITY TO SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE AND OPTIMIZATION. I GET EXCITED WHEN SOMETHING NEW HITS THE MARKET IN THE INDOOR CYCLING ARENA AND YOU SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISED TO FIND ME AT MY WAREHOUSE AT ANY GIVEN NIGHT - INTO THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING, TROUBLESHOOTING AND ANALYZING A BIKE AND/OR PRODUCT TO FIND OUT WHAT MAKES IT GOOD. AND, NOT SO GOOD...
