Bruno jumping a bike

BRUNO  Beginner Mechanic, Sales Associate

I am currently in High School. I got my first bike at The Broken Spoke when I was two years old. I’ve loved bikes ever since. I try to get out and ride as much as possible.

You do not have to be fearless. Doing it afraid is just as brave.

IAN  Beginner Mechanic

Ian has been an avid cyclist from a young age. He is always enthusiastic to learn about new bike stuff. He enjoys sharing his passion for BMX. Want to go for a ride?
