Dave has over 30 years in the cycling industry. After many years at Metro Bicycles in NYC, Dave co-founded The Racer’s Edge in Boca Raton Florida before moving to Durham for a brief academic career. His treatise on off-brand derailleurs, Everything You wanted to Know about Sachs but were Afraid to Ask, can be found in the sub basement of Duke’s Lilly library.
Scotty: Service Tech / Touring Expert
Scotty is a multiple Moth “Pensive Stare” grand-slam winner. His secret is to visualize himself discussing the religious symbolism in Southerlands Bicycle Mechanic’s handbook (3rd ed.) with Ben Sisko over a glass of Synthehol. When not at the shop, Scotty can be found training his daughter for the anticipated inclusion of non-lethal Bat’leth in the 2024 Olympics.
Phil: Head Mechanic / Campagnolo Expert
Our resident hair care model, Phil no longer recommends the use of Tenacious oil as a hair treatment. The pleasant tingling sensation, he notes, is actually the first stage of the polex neuromotor syndrome, a disorder making it impossible to shift gears with one’s thumb.
Jason: Service Tech / Disc Brake Expert: The International Bureau of Weights and Measures uses one of Jason’s perfectly trued brake rotors as the world standard for flatness. Each year when he visits his family home in Rothenburg, he stops a the IBWM headquarters in Paris to confirm his rotor remains flatter than their previous measure (a sheet of graphene with a height variation of 25 picometers). Jason has never needed to make an adjustment to the rotor and instead uses his time to align the derailleur hangers on Paris’ city bikes.
