A Word from Zach

I didn’t really choose this as a career so much as I lucked into it. I was honestly just looking for a way to continue my path in the bicycle industry, while learning as much as possible along the way.

I got my start in a bike shop when I was 17, and things evolved from there.

My personal interests include anything bicycle related, repairing or building things, exploring outdoors, camping, backpacking/bikepacking, being on or near the water, golf, music.
