Bob - Vice President
Bob met Paul in second grade and was his roommate his sophomore year of college. The pair started working together a few years later, and the result is what you see today. Bob is the voice and spirit of the Saint Paul shop.
Rich - Store Manager
I love coming to work every day. One of the many reasons we are successful is we have an amazing work family and stellar cycling community. My fellow staff are some of my best friends. We ride together, eat together, drink together and talk together. I couldn't ask for a better group of people. We have the most amazing customers and community of cyclists who love to support our shop! Connecting with people on a personal level, caring about them and their goals is so rewarding. Come on by for a beer and lets chat! See you on the trails.
Mike - Senior Sales
Mike started working at a bike shop while attending college to pay for his first road racing bike. The rest is history. After over 20 years of road racing and group ride leading, Mike has firmly left his mark on the Now Bikes legacy. When not working or riding, you can find Mike hunting or fishing or playing with his dog Zeus.
Sam - Sales, Social Media
Sam (or Bergie, as we like to affectionately call him) has made his mark as our go-to mountain bike expert. Everything ranging from tire pressure to suspension kinematics to wheel size; if you really want to get into the nitty-gritty details, Sam’s the guy to ask. He also helps run our demo fleet and leads some of our mountain bike rides during the summer, including our Shred the Red trip to Cuyuna. Sam also handles Now Bike's social media and digital content. When he’s not out ripping his mountain bike you’ll probably find Sam coaching Ultimate Frisbee, carving spoons, or (most likely) fixing the most recent thing he’s broken on his bike.
Ambrose - Senior Technician
Often heard complaining about all the high end bikes he has to work on, Ambrose has set himself apart from most mechanics with his extreme attention to detail and commitment to perfection. He's had plenty of time to hone his skills, as he started working with Now when he was 14 years old. After all these years he's worked his way up to being the Saint Paul shop's Service Manager. His skills don't end there, as Ambrose is a veteran mountain biker, and helps out with our Trail Takeover, Rollin' Fatties, and Shred the Red Cuyuna Trip.
Sam Sam - Technician/Pain Cave Mgr
Our resident roadie speedster and KOM crushers spends most of his time around shop eagerly working with and advising clients in both service and sales helping them in their road, gravel and tri pursuits. When he's not nitpicking the aesthetic rules of seasonal bar tape matching or worrying about uneven tan lines, he can be found leading our wide range of weekly summer road rides and coordinating our indoor training studio in the winter. On a few rare occasions he can even be found toeing the line at local road races, gravel events, and nights at the velodrome. Check in on Sam Sam and his bike life via Instagram @whysamsam.
