Justin Bolinger-I Know A Guy Bicycles

My passion for bikes started when my parents justin bolingeropened a shop in the 1980s, called Parker Bikes (we were located in Parker, Colorado). My love for cycling has continued since then, in my work and with my hobbies of road cycling and mountain biking. After my parents’ shop closed, I’ve worked for other bike shops (including Lee’s Cyclery in Fort Collins), where I’ve built and sold bikes, fixed and tuned-up bikes, and managed inventory.
