As a native of Massachusetts I grew up riding the streets of New England. It was in the mid eighties that I jumped on my first mountain bike. But since I first threw a leg over a top tube as a young kid, I've been hooked on cycling. I moved to Colorado in 1992. I met my wife, a pro mountain biker chick, on a ride in Winter Park in 1995. We've been married since July of 1999 and I'm still trying to keep up with her on the climbs! My hobbies include watching T.V. on the couch, continuously eating, playing in the machine shop, but mostly thinking of, working on, and riding my bicycles. After many years on the retail bike store circuit I have a real job here at Maverick!
Mike & Chris are around the office also, but we are not as important as Mr. Franklin! More on us later.
