Kevin - Owner of WebCyclery and WebSkis. He loves riding new trails and is slowly becoming a better bike handler. He has a coupled Moots that he can't wait to take to Europe again. He loves the big climbs, although he is definitely built better for going down them. His mountain bikes keep getting more and more travel, and he's actually riding them more too. Ask him about his Salsa Bucksaw and Scott Genius w/XTR Di2 (27.5!), or his new Co-Motion Klatch CS3 with Ultegra Di2.
In the winter Kevin can be found at sun up on the nordic trails of Mt Bachelor and Virginia Meissner, honing his classic technique (he skates too, but prefers classic). Kevin goes back to Wisconsin for the American Birkebeiner, a 55km classic ski race (or 51km skate), every Feb., slowly working his was up through the waves. He has moved up to Wave 2, and is only a few minutes off of Wave 1. Wave 1 is the goal (he knows that the Elite wave is never going to happen for him)
Ed used to manage the shop, but has moved to more of a part-time role these days, and is our Co-Motion and Moots fitting expert. In his spare time he also runs the BendBroadband/WebCyclery race team. He rides a Scott Foil and Scott Spark. He's a roadie, and one of the best crit riders around. But don't let that fool you, he will still kick all of our asses on the dirt. He's also become a nordic geek. He is slowly amassing a quiver of skis, almost as many as Bert! When it comes to Di2 and anything Campy, Ed is all over it.
DickieG is from Madison, WI and got his sons riding by taking us around the neighborhood on the back of his yellow Schwinn Letour. He also took us out on the golf courses of SE WI. Now he rides a super sweet Globe. He is in charge of accounts Payable, Procurement, and all the shop fantasy leagues.
Bert is one of our ski & wax gurus. Bert comes to us from Vermont, by way of Colorado and New Hampshire. He taught at Proctor Academy in NH for 30 years (but still considers himself a Vermonter). He speaks a little Czech, and has done his fair share of coaching both alpine and nordic skiing. Bert rides a Scott Foil road bike and a Ritchey Swiss Cross for hiw gravel bike. Bert has a whole crap-ton of skis - cold skis, warm skis, wet skis, dry skis, fast skis, slow skis. etc. If you wanna get technical, come talk to Bert. Bert tried to retire a couple years ago, but somehow we were lucky enough to talk him in to working 2-3 days a week in the winter. As a side note, Bert's son was a combined skier and on the US Ski team.
Shannon came to us from the Bay area (Cupertino Bike Shop) and is the most even keeled mechanic we've ever had on the staff. He rides all sorts of bikes, including his Niner Sir9, Specialized Stumpjumper, Bontrager SS, Cervelo R3SL, and Schwinn Collegiate, and he even has a unicycle. Shannon is an alpine and tele instructor up at Mt Bachelor in the winters. He is super smart and thorough and is great with technical stuff.
After spending the last 15 years or so in Yellowstone, Wyoming (with a few stints at Royal Gorge, Mammoth Lakes, and Girdwood/Alyeska Ski Area), Zach made his way to Bend, and we are sure glad he did. Zach is a great rider, skier, skitech, mechanic, salesman, etc. He is a nordic ski instructor up at Mt Bachelor in the winter and is our other resident ski and wax guru (aren't we lucky). Zach is currently cruising the trails on a Salsa El Mariachi Ti.
Heidi loves to ride. When she's not helping us here in the shop, she's probably riding or having fun in the outdoors. She's also a part time guide and mtb instructor. And she likes beer and whiskey, too. We like Heidi.
Julia came to us from Corvallis, OR, where she worked at Peak Sports. She is a great mechanic and is one of the best at figuring out where that little noise is coming from. We're really happy and lucky to have Julia on our staff.
Erich moved up here with his family from Redding, CA where he worked at the Chain Gang bike shop. He is an impressive mechanic and does a great job with all things suspension. Another great employee that we are lucky to have.
Adam joins us after a few years at Corvallis Cyclery and a long stint at Cycle Analysis in Jacksonville, OR. He's young, but quite experienced. We are lucky to have found yet another gem to add to our staff. He does have a cat, but Kevin isn't holding that against him.
