If you’ve never seen any of Park Tool’s tutorial videos or stopped by their booth at Sea Otter Classic, then you’ve been missing the wonder that is Calvin Jones.
His energy levels and excitement for tools and bike repairs is contagious, so I’m super stoked to share this interview with you.
We talk about his favorite tools, where repairs go wrong, and how they overcome stuck and stripped bolts, among many other things. We also talk about Park Tool’s history, why they’re blue and why that color is so important to their brand, and how they come up with ideas for new tools.
I really enjoyed this one, and some of his insights on learning are world-class.
