Whenever there’s a question in the shop that nobody can answer, we always go to Sam. His knowledge of bikes is extensive, and he’s always solving all sorts of bicycle problems that people bring into the shop. His current bike count is around 20, although that fluctuates depending on how many of his friends catch the “bike bug” and take one for themselves. Him and his wife have been Provo residents for a few years now, and they have loved being near the mountains. Sam’s passion in film photography has helped him capture the great scenery that surrounds us. If you bring in your bike to the Collective to be fixed, you’ll most likely get to meet Sam!

David just returned to work at Provo Bicycle Collective after being away for a bit, because he has so much fun being an employee here! Not only can he fix a bike, but he is our go-to computer guy. He’s just finishing up a degree at BYU in computer engineering. And rumor has it, he’s also quite the bowler. David and his wife are proud parents of a little boy named Russell, who get’s all the attention every time he visits the shop. We’re elated to have David!

Matt Reed - Mechanic

Written by

Matt is always the one eyeing the vintage bicycles that come in, and he’s an expert at fixing the unfixable. He has a mysterious aura about him, and every once in awhile he’ll pull out some crazy fact about himself, such as the time he played the lute in a renaissance band. Matt and his wife have a new little baby girl, and we’re all sure she is going to be shredding on a bicycle in no time at all. We love having Matt here at the Collective!
