A Word From The Owner

Here's how it all started. When I was 6 I taught myself how to ride a bike. I wouldn't let my dad help me so I crashed all day until I figured out. I was instantly hooked.
In the winter my mom wouldn't let me ride outside so I would ride my bike in circles in our basement.
I took my first bike apart when I was 12, painted it, and put it back together. There were parts left over but it still worked.
I bought my first road bike with my own money when I was 13. I mowed lawns, walked dogs, painted houses, and did any odd jobs I could find for a year to save up for it. It was too big but I didn't care and on my first ride the police stopped me because they thought I stole it. I managed to convince them otherwise and they let me go.
In high school, when everyone was getting their first car at 16 I was getting my first mountain bike. I went off road for the first time at Palos and was instantly hooked on mountain biking. I still can't get enough of it 20 years later.
In the army I was the only soldier riding a bike to work. In full uniform. Doing wheelies the whole way. I got in trouble for that a few times but it was worth it. Apparently being stuck in traffic is behavior more appropriate for a soldier.
In 2001 I walked into Johnny Sprockets to buy shoes and I never left. In 2008 I took on a loan to buy the business.
People often ask me how my bike shop is different. I usually answer that question by talking about the quality and level of our service, our products, our support, stuff like that. But that's not really it.

The difference is, this is my life. It's not a job. It's not an investment. It's not a hobby. Cycling is my life. I am not driven by making more money. I don't want a big house. I don't want more locations. I don't care about retirement. What drives everything I do is simple. Treat my customers and staff with respect and integrity. Constantly work to create the best bike shop I possibly can. Be a resource to our community that people can trust and a place that I can be proud of. That is what makes my shop different. I freaking love it. 

I work in my stores with my staff and with my customers every day so if I ever fall short of that standard please let me know. You know where to find me.
