New Kids on the Bike Block in Boulder, Colorado

It took some doing, but we did it.

As of October 2014, we opened the doors to Boulder Bicycle Works.

And by “it took some doing,” I mean it took some 40+ years of wrenching at bike shops around the US, frame building, mountain, road and snow bike racing, owning a bike shop in Italy, rep-ing bikes all over New England, having a bike fit shop in Massachusetts, bike touring across continents, having kids and a slew of other two-wheeled adventures before Dave and I worked together in a Colorado bike shop decided to open a shop of our own in Boulder, CO. 256 more words
