Before Bikes                                                                                                                                              After Bikes

I’m Joe Kuhfahl. The service manager at Full Cycle. I’ve been working in bike shops for over ten years now and ride every kind of bike possible. Whereas mountain biking was what brought me out to Boulder from New Jersey, I have developed a strong love for climbing the many beautiful mountain roads outside of town.

Spencer Burns – Assistant to the regional manager

Yet another East Coast transplant in Colorado. I grew up in Northern Virginia and went to college in southwest Virginia where my passion for the outdoors truly blossomed. I’ve been riding bikes all my life and started mountain biking as a teenager. I dove hard into riding when I moved to Colorado about 4 years ago. When the trails are too white, I get on my skis and slide down hills (and sometimes up!). 

Bikes: Iron Horse Warrior (26 for life!!!)(Buy me a new bike please), Bridgestone T700 roadie, and whatever rental is available for the day.

Nick Leng – The Hill Store Manager
