'm 54 years old and I've loved bikes my whole life. I've worked with bicycles off and on since I was 15, from little mom & pop shops to some of the biggest players in the industry. I like to think of myself as a bicycle industry "hanger-on" and I try not to take myself too seriously. It's only a bike, after all!  

The reason I love the Bicycle Collective here in Utah, as well as all the other non-profit bike outfits on the planet, is that they remind me of the reasons I learned to love bikes in the first place. Riding my bike to work at my first job. Riding with friends. Learning how to fix bikes. Exploring new places. In my life, bikes have always meant personal freedom and I'm here to share that message. Bikes are for everyone, regardless a person's level of fitness, income or station in life. You may be riding your bike to your local library or you might be racing in the Tour de France, but goal is exactly the same. Keep the rubber side down!

Hi, my name’s Dustin. I’m excited to part of this organization. I love mountain biking and spending time with Chelsea, my wife  and Edith, my daughter . 

I began my career in the cycling industry as a junior road racer working and wrenching in shops to support my racing ambitions. At one point I had a 50 mile round-trip commute from Bountiful to Millcreek Bicycles. In 2010, I earned my USA Cycling Category 1 rank and had a top-20 result at U-23 nationals in the time trial. The following year I began working at Quality Bicycle Products (QBP) as a customer service representative. 

I became aware of the Bicycle Collective in 2012 after a snowboarding accident put an end to my road racing ambitions. In 2013, I was hired as the Ogden Bicycle Collective’s open shop manager and eventually helped move the building from Wall Ave. to the Fowler Ave. location. 

At QBP I took on an additional role as the site ACE Coordinator. This gave me experience organizing volunteer projects and working on advocacy efforts.

I’ve spent the last 3 years immersed in the world of disc-brakes at TRP/Tektro USA working as a warranty tech / customer service rep / graphic designer / human swiss army knife.

I love helping people learn to fix their bikes and enjoy the sport that has brought such happiness to my life.

The Bicycle Collective is seeking a Mechanic for its St. George shop.  Our Mechanic is an integral part of the team that builds on the Collective’s eighteen years of community bicycling initiatives, promoting cycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation and as a cornerstone of a cleaner, healthier and safer society.  The Mechanic leads the effort to rehabilitate used bicycles, furthering the Collective’s contributions to its local citizens and communities.

Bicycle Collective - Bike Sales by Appointment!

 

Although we want to be open to serve our clients and customers, we understand the need to encourage social distancing and limit the possibility of community spread to our employees and volunteers. 

 

Until this all blows over, we are offering our help by appointment so you can buy a bike, parts, or get help with that tricky mechanical problem. We want to be available to safely serve the community, especially with how crucial bikes are to maintaining all of our health and sanity.

 

Do you need a bike? Know someone who does? Starting Monday, March 30th we are available to sell bikes and parts by appointment. Here’s how easy it is:

 

  • Browse our selection of refurbished on Instagram at @pbcsalebikes or on our website. Make sure to note the make and model of the bike you’re interested in and we’ll set up a time that’s convenient for both of us so you can test it out. If you don’t see what you need, give us a call and we’ll try to help you out.

 

  • Set up an appointment for a test ride Tue-Sat from 12-7p by contacting us in any of the following ways.
    • By phone: 801-210-9032
    • By email:
    • Message us at @pbcsalebikes on Instagram
    • Message our Facebook page
    • Book directly on our Appointments site 

 

  • When you get to the shop, please knock. We’ll set aside 20 minutes to help fit the bike to you and answer any questions. We ask that you be prompt so we can help folks in a timely manner. If there’s a line, please stand 6’ away from the person in front of you.

 

  • Our staff will wear gloves when we handle the bikes, and we’ll be practicing good hand washing hygiene--washing before and after we help each customer. We recommend you do the same, and we’ll sanitize the contact surfaces of each bike before and after your test ride.

 

  • When you decide to purchase a bike from us, we accept credit cards, Apple/Google Pay, or we can email an invoice. Contactless payments are much less susceptible to viral transmission! Once you’re all paid up, you’re good to go.

 

If you want to help us out but you don’t need to buy a bike, consider purchasing a gift card to use when we’re able to reopen. You’ll get an additional 10% off your purchase when you use that gift card as a thanks for supporting us through this tough time.  Additionally, please consider donating disinfectants such as Lysol Wipes.


We value our DIY shop hours immensely, but it is currently unwise to host them. Soon we will be announcing a Service & Repairs department so we can help keep your bike rolling smoothly. We recognize that doesn’t do much to help folks who relied on our Work Trade programs to keep rolling, so we’re making Service Vouchers available to help cover the costs of repairs for those who can’t afford it, click the link here to pay it forward.
