Kent is how we manage to keep this business humming. His youthful enthusiasm, years of experience, tireless attitude and dedication are unsurpassed. He manages to maintain his reputation of working a 19 hour day and racing his bike in the summer and xc skis in the winter, staying on top of the podium in most of the event he enters. Kent personally cuts, miters, jigs and aligns every frame that comes out of our shop. He is the builder, beginning to end.
Brad joined Eriksen Cycles in the Fall, 2012. No stranger to the industry, Kent and Brad were former colleagues while Eriksen was at the helm at Moots Cycles. Brad’s signature welds are just the tip of the iceberg to his talent pool: His scientific approach to creating, designing and to the manufacture of frames is a welcome addition. He brings a genuine enjoyment of the business and his enthusiastic demeanor is contagious. Brad’s years of experience and worldwide reputation make him a distinct addition to the company.
Kyle is the latest recruit to Eriksen Cycles. He is a recent transplant from the Midwest, a graduate of the University of Minnesota and a fast paced, well researched bike part genius. He splits his time between the shop and office completing frame finish work, seatpost production and frame packing as well as advising clients on bike components, build desings and ordering up all the parts we put on our finished frames. We are excited to have him on our team!
Kenny is the “shop dog”. He is Brad’s charge, but we all tell him what to do… and he, in turn, herds us into position each day. Kenny adds a new element to the shop, as well as keeps us protected from all the delivery men. HINT: Carry treats when you visit!
Katie doubles as business partner and wife to Kent. Running the business operations she performs accounting, sales, advertising and marketing. Katie is also critical in research and development. She puts every frame and bike component to the test, logging many miles both on and off road. If you have a question about a component, she has an opinion!
