Falkor is our very own personal ‘luck dragon’. From the moment he wandered into our doors, he has forever changed BBW for the better. Falkor is quite possibly the most well liked and sought after member of our staff and certainly gets the most attention on our Instagram. He loves snoozing all day, kitty treats and greeting everyone who stops in.
Chris has been living car free for almost 20 years and is extremely knowledgeable about how to make cycling a fun, easy and safe part of your life. He recognized his talent for working on bikes through helping friends build bikes in his basement. Through his work at BBW, Chris hopes to help build the cycling community here in Baltimore and see others find the simple joys of riding a bike.
Like so many of his generation, David got seriously into riding bikes through the fixed-gear boom of the mid 2000’s. Since then, David has graduated to geared bikes, and spends most of his saddle time doing long, mixed-surface rides and crushing it around town. David’s passions lie in putting fancy, new parts on cool, older bikes; friction shifting; saying, “WOW!”; and climbing mountains with his dog, Thor, who he loves dearly. Doctors still haven’t figured out how David eats only pizza and doughnuts and is still faster than you.
Katie started riding on cool, summer mornings in central South Carolina and has weaved thru traffic, passed thru tunnels, over bridges, and up hills by bike from Chicago to rural Finland. Also an artist and musician, Katie appreciates the physical connection between pedals, gears, bodies, and the ground, and is looking forward to gaining more mechanic skills.
Mer comes to us from San Antonio, by way of Memphis. Mer has been working in the bike industry since 2010, and brings both her expert mechanical skills and talent as a designer, helping to keep the bikes at BBW running smooth, and the shop looking pretty. In keeping with her Southern heritage, Mer likes eating vegan soul food, and riding bikes nice and slow. Talk to her about prepping for anything; from your next off-road tour, to Cannondale Lefty’s, to your 2 mile commute downtown—or just let her wax poetic about the virtues of mini-velos.
A truly brilliant mechanic and rider, there are few things on a bike that Brent can’t fix. With over 15 years experience in the industry, Brent’s skills are a major asset at BBW, and a big reason why people keep coming back for world class service.
Patrick has been living in Baltimore for the past three years. He like cooking and eating vegan, playing DnD with pals, and has been #carfree for 6 years. When asked what he wanted to share with the public, Patrick was in a toss up between "Skate or Die" and "Cars are Coffins."
Bernardo finds his way from Minneapolis to Baltimore to attend Goucher College. His love for cycling surfaced in his teen years when he discovered he could sleep in an extra 30 minutes if he ditched the bus and rode his bike to school instead. Bernardo continues to live car free here in Baltimore and has graduated college. Since graduating, Bernardo has become one of our dedicated fit specialists, and actually has time to ride his bikes for fun and not just transportation.
Keith comes to us with many years of road cycling and commuting experience. He leads Sunday rides regularly with the Fun on Bikes cycling group. Let Keith tell you about the best hills to climb in the county, the quickest way to get downtown, and about local bicycle advocacy. Keith almost bought a historical fire station once, but it turned out to be a Craigslist scam!
As a UBI graduate with years of shop experience under his belt, Casey has come from snowy Michigan to deliver the world class customer service you have come to expect from BBW. Although Casey’s knowledge extends to all types of bicycles, he is happiest riding classic, upright bikes and has even been seen applying twine and shellac to the handlebars of unsuspecting coworkers. Casey’s encyclopedic product knowledge, and insistence at maintaining a high level of comfort at all times, has also made him an invaluable addition to our team.
