Our specialty is providing top-quality service with a view towards promoting long-term reliability and enjoyment of your bicycle. We can do it all in our full service shop, from tune-ups, to wheel building, to hydraulic brake bleeds. We take pride in the work we do because we believe in professional service, honest dealing, and most importantly, bicycles as healthy transportation.
Both of us have roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. Brett was born and raised atop a hill in San Francisco. Karen was born in Copenhagen, but moved when she was young to Sausalito, where her family has lived since the 1940's.
We met at UC Berkeley in Robert Reich’s public policy class and we've been together ever since. We’re pretty sure that our compatibility can be chalked up to shared ambition, a desire to go beyond the status quo, and a mutual contrarian streak.
Our passion for electric bikes can be attributed to many things, but the combination of growing up among San Francisco's legendary hills and a lasting desire to do good work for our community top the list.
