Kevin has been a bicycle enthusiast since a very young age. Determined to succeed, Kevin decided to take on being a business owner at 16. He started California Bicycle, Inc. in October, 1976, and has never looked back. He has a huge pedigree of cycling industry accomplishments from being a Lead Mechanic for the JDavid Professional Triathlon Team, Master Technician for the Subaru Montgomery Pro Team and US Postal Service to building many of the top time trial bikes for 2 generations of elite triathletes. He is a magician when it comes to bicycle mechanics from old to new. He strives for perfection–which can be seen as soon as you step into California Bicycle today, 40 years later!
To say that you were born to do something is an understatement. Jason was born into the bicycle industry. He was born into the world of bicycles as this family ran a store that is older than he is–by 5 years! His passion for anything with two wheels shines through as soon as you spark up a conversation with him. He has been riding two wheels since the age of 2 and has never looked back, from racing BMX to downhill and now perfecting the art of bicycle fittings. He is a “go to’ salesman for any bicycle, component, or accessory.
Bill is our lead technician. He is master certified by some of the leading bicycle technical training institutes, a master wheel builder, and just pretty much a master in anything bicycle! He is fully as much artisan as mechanic and has vast knowledge from the vintage components of the steel frame era to the state of the art electronic components of today. He has been in the bicycle industry for over 40 years and his know how in the repair area is unrivaled.
Ralph is our jack of all trades. Mastering many and specializing in none is his mantra. He is a mountain bike aficionado that can recite our local trails and routes backwards if required. His knowledge of bicycles is extensive and if you have been in the La Jolla area you have most likely seen him blasting around town on the “green machine” getting things done! If you need it done and done right, Ralph is your man!
