1,000 Posts Brings Me Back to the Bike Shop

My last post on the new Surly Ogre commuter rig was my 1,000 post here in 1,000 posts since starting this site in July of 2009 and I find it very fitting as I will be going back in to the bike shop life this coming Monday as the general manager of all things management at Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop here in Denver, Colorado.

As you may remember, I worked for a short bit at Salvagetti helping the owner here and there when we first moved to Denver. Salvagetti wasn’t ready for a GM and so I moved on. A quick stint selling spandex at Pearl Izumi and then a longer stint in the advertising agency world brought me back to center. When the owner of Salvagetti and I started talking a month ago on what he was needing, I knew this was the answer we both needed.

I’m very excited to be at the helm of a couple very amazing shops here in Denver and can’t wait to share the experience with all of you! If you are in Denver, give me a shout and come visit.
