Greetings from Stowe!
It’s a bit rainy today, which means no shredding the gnar on our local trails. What better to do than take this opportunity to get your bike cleaned, tuned, or pick up that new SRAM XX rear derailleur you’ve been eying? We are currently offering a free bike safety check as well as a special $35 full tune. That, however, is not the only thing that’s new. We’re proud to officially announce our new bike service manager, Dave Clifford! Dave, along with the rest of the Bike Stowe Crew, is extremely passionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated to getting the most possible enjoyment out of your time on a bike.
We sat down with our new service manager and general bike guru and asked him some questions about himself, his history in the bike industry, and why he ended up at Skiershop and Bike Stowe.
So, how long have you been living in Vermont?
I’ve been able to call this state home since June of 99
How long have you been working as a bike mechanic?
Not really sure if it should be called work, maybe paid hobby?
From what other bike shops in the area might customers remember you?
You might remember me in such films… sorry wrong career
Bike brand of choice?
Hmm.. I may just have to say the Intense does it for me
Favorite local trail?
Always good to have a Last Run down
Let’s get serious for a second, Why are you excited about joining the Skiershop/Bike Stowe Crew?
The folks here are passionate and have an awesome enthusiasm about what they are doing, which brings a fun atmosphere. Who doesn’t like showing up to work and enjoying being there?
And there you have it. A very small insight into the mind of our new bike service manager. The word helpful certainly doesn’t do him justice. No matter what’s wrong with your bike, how confused you are about what fork to buy, or just want to talk local trails or new gear, he’s the man for the job. New service manager, new bike and gear brands, come see what else is new at Skiershop and Bike Stowe!
