I started road racing with the United States Cycling Federation in 1988 and later moved to mountain bike racing with the National Off-Road Bicycle Association in the mid-1990s (organizations now known as USA Cycling). Bicycles have been my passion for almost 30 years and I’ve been working on them for just as long. I love all bikes from vintage rides to the cutting-edge.
I joined the Lehigh University cycling team and then transferred to the UMass Amherst team. A bad crash during a collegiate race at West Point Academy pushed me into mountain biking and the exploding race scene at the time. Currently I participate in local cyclocross races.
Before starting Steve the Bike Guy I wore the hat of Professional Geologist specializing in groundwater contamination and cleanup.
Steve the Bike Guy was started in March 2011. I’ve provided neutral race support for dozens of triathlons and supported local charity rides. I hold a USA Cycling Race Mechanics license after graduating in the 2011 program in Colorado Springs, CO; which is limited to 60 experienced mechanics accepted per year. I hold additional mechanical certificates from Park Tool and Shimano.
