Cofounder & CEO
Jesse's love for bike fit started when he bought his first road bike and was sold a bike that was two sizes too big. He fell for cycling but was plagued by chronic injuries due to the poor positioning. Once he finally got a fit and set up the bike somewhat functionally, he was amazed by what changes could be made to improve his comfort and enjoyment of the sport. As Jesse's affinity for cycling grew, he decided on a career change from economics to bikes. Recalling how much bike fit improved his cycling experience, Jesse devoted himself to learning everything he could about achieving the optimum fit. Fast forward almost 15 years later and Jesse now holds Level 2 certification from the International Bike Fit Institute as well as fit certifications from Retul and Trek. He has fit over 2,000 people of all backgrounds and is just as comfortable fitting a National Champion as a first timer.
