Bio coming soon!

Byron Jean

Mechanic

The first time Byron was introduced to biking as recreation was by a friend in 2004. About 10 years ago, he picked up a bike again, this time for transportation. Learning to maintain his bike was a nessary skill to be a full time bicycle commuter. 

Byron likes going fast, exercising, knowing tha he can fix almost anything on any bike, pedaling up hills, eating cookies, and customizing his bike. Byron doesn't like flat tires, riding in the summer heat, finding safe places to lock his bike, people honking at, pant legs getting dirty from chain oil, and wearing helmets (we won't tell anyone).
