We’re so stoked to welcome Brian to the Deluxe crew. Brian is from Colorado and moved to Brooklyn in 2009. He’s what you would call a football fanatic, rooting for his home team, the Denver Broncos, although the Giants are warming up to him a little he admits. Brian has two sweet-as-can-be dogs that are just a treat whenever he brings them to the shop! He loves all kinds of cycling, but specifically road and mountain.
Brian is a Serotta certified fitter with experience in road, cross, track, tri, tt and mtb and even has experience in adaptive fit for people with injuries and disabilities. He used to be a professional team mechanic and over the years has earned multiple certifications in different facets of bicycle mechanics ranging from electronic groupsets to downhill suspension overhauls. He also has experience working at top 10 bike shops in the country as a fitter and mechanic.
Similar to the Stratos we put up recently this Vivalo also has Dura Ace 10-Pitch and set of tied and soldered wheels! Classic is only first taste this bike offers. Topping things off with Nitto components and a Kshimax Fivegold saddle, this bike is literally straight off the track.
Straight off the track from Japan, everything is NJS with Dura Ace 10 Pitch. Nitto cockpit with a brilliantly white fivegold saddle keep this bike clean. Ready to roll and win some match sprints with those stiff tied and soldered wheels!
Jesse and Wilis raced track over at T-Town in PA. Aside from the blistering heat, it was a blast. We ran into our buddy AJ over at Harvest Cyclery and got to race with him. There were so many masters they had to split them into separate groups.. It was great getting to see some 30+ years of experience on the track. See ya next week T-Town!
