From Louisville Kentucky; Brian’s aptitude for mechanical things was nourished by his father, who helped him rebuild cars and allowed him to work in the family business repairing electrical apparatus. When Brian was exposed to industrial electronics, his thirst for knowledge took him back to college in 1984. While studying at the J. B. Speed School of Engineering, Brian started riding mountain bikes with friends as a way to relax and take the mind off engineering classes. After graduation he worked in the Computer Integrated Manufacturing field: Designing, programming and maintaining computer systems used for industrial automation. Brian learned the art of bicycle maintenance and repair during self supported endurance mountain bike races. In 2001 he changed careers for the third time, working for a small outdoor outfitter, Derby City Outfitters. This small start opened the opportunity to work at several of the Midwest’s largest bicycle and fitness retailers. Brian comes to Sycamore Cycles with a passion for Mountain Trail and Gravity riding. He has experience with most aspects of cycling; Bike Fit, Electronic Shift Systems, Hydraulic Disc Brakes, Suspension, Triathlon and Wheel Building.
