Kevin wanted to be free. Free to ride his machine... without being hassled by The Man.
We like bikes. A lot.
It’s not just some line, it’s who we are, right to the core. Mountain, road, gravel, ‘cross, BMX, touring, triathlon -- it’s all in our blood.
bikebarn exists to be an outlet for our stoke that you can plug straight into, but we also haven’t forgotten how to be part of the community. So whether you’re just out to cruise the neighborhood or you’re always chasing the next level, we’re here to help.
The Cast & Crew
Kevin Chickl... Chichklo... Chikshchcschc... Kevin.
Kevin is the glue that keeps this sticky mess stuck together. Ultimately, since bikebarn is his baby, everything is Kevin’s fault.
John apparently has the metabolism of a hummingbird on amphetamines, which is a good thing, because John has a donut habit that could make Homer blush. He also does all the fitting and most of the bathroom-mirror-selfie-taking for bikebarn.
Florida. Not like the rest of us. Mark likes shiny fenders and baskets and mountain bikes that don’t exist. His favorite place to get hurt is wherever he happens to be riding someone else’s bike.
Dan is a friend to all the animals, loves naps, and holds the record for most collisions with a motor vehicle among bikebarn employees. Dan races road, cross, and mountain bikes, and has put in more miles during a one week touring vacation than most of us ride in months. He is the resident nerd and has the answer to all of your computer/tech questions.
Mike rides it all, but particularly, he’s the oracle you seek if you want to find the best (or worst) gravel to ride all over southeastern Massachusetts and beyond. You can recognize him by the 9 pound bag of food he carries in with him every morning, or the empty bag he leaves with at the end of the day.
Ryan is one of our resident juniors who has probably beat you in a race and taken several of your KOMs. We threw him into the fire back in service and he took on the challenge without blinking an eye.
Randall is the guy we turn to for "street" terminology, Mark impersonations, and bottom bracket compatibility. Randall is still young but he started working in bike shops when he was still in Pull-Ups. Can work an entire day fueled by a 1L Mountain Dew and a small can of Pringles.
He may be but small, but he is fierce. Greg has the right tool for the job, and failing that, he's introduced us to his 24" Crescent wrench. Our resident wheel wizard, you can spot Greg by finding the guy who looks like he fell out of a Fjällräven catalog.
Zach and Jake Walker
The Walkers of Hazzard County. These boys will huck a bike off anything for that sweet, sweet footy. If you see a vid of someone riding down the bikebarn stairs, clearing a ridiculous gap, or jumping their bike 8 feet in the air with a faint dixie horn sound in the distance, it's probably one of these two.
Unicorn Name: Mystic Glitter Blossom
Anthony is the first person you should call if friends at the bar are wondering how much a professional curling stone weighs or whether it's a good idea to boop the snoot.
Damon is our art czar, captain of the cheer squad, Kool-Aid mixer, and arch foe to drivetrain parts.
