Jim Rose moved to Orono in 1979 to attend the University of Maine and has called the town home ever since. For more than 30 years Jim has followed his passion for bikes by fixing and selling them and now runs a premier bike shop with a reputation for efficiency, honesty and great customer service. Jim's favorite ride is the one he is on whether road, gravel or mountain bike and his favorite vacuum cleaner is any of the ten or so Electrolux models hibernating in the shop.
Jeremy joined our staff in March of 2013. He brings with him more than a quarter century of industry experience! Jeremy can fix just about anything bike related, and has extensive knowledge of the cycling industry. Currently he rides a Transition Sentinel. If he's not fixing bikes, he's riding them.
