MEL & JANET

Mel & Janet have spent a quarter-century in the customer-service business. Transplants from flat, cold Chicago, Mel abandoned his Moots YBB for an HP Velotechnik Streetmachine. Janet desperately clung to her pink upright Terry until she tried a Catrike –now there’s no going back.

LOUIE

Bike rider/recumbent mechanic with years of repair and guide experiences. Louie is the guy you want to meet up with that will share everything he knows with enthusiasm and very detailed instructions. If you need to know how to get to a ride, he will give you verbal, written and visual guides. Need a 5mm bolt while riding, he probably has one on him somewhere! Best boy scout biker ever!

RICK

Rick is the guy that you want to depend on for getting all of the details of putting your trike together right. He takes care to make sure that it meets the specs of the manufacturer and the customer. He is quiet, but has a great dry sense of humor and one of the most solid people to depend on.

SPENCER

Spencer has been a bike mechanic since he was knee-high to a grasshopper.  When it comes to recumbents, he’s a human Google Search Tool (we first suggested ”walking encyclopedia”, but he said, “what’s that?”). Wheel builds and complex problem solving are his specialty.
