Sterling has been riding an electric bike since 2001 and considers it his daily driver. Big-believer in his car substitute and runs business errands, gets supplies at the store, has been known to haul plywood, kegs, multiple bikes and loads of kids. Current daily set of wheels is the clockwork orange Bullitt by Larry vs Harry.
Marnel has had the bike bug ever since she rode her first bike century on a borrowed Schwinn. Centuries led to double centuries, then switching to mt biking endurance and adventure races with the current love of bikepacking and leading eBike group rides. Marnel can’t decide which ebike is her favorite because they all are so fun and definitely subscribes to the N + 1 theory on bike ownership.
Troy was born and raised at 9800' in Frisco, CO, and has been on and around bikes for nearly his entire life. He started racing Road and Mountain bikes in middle school and soon came to love the feeling of riding bikes. That led him to attend Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO and race track, road, cyclocross and mountain bikes. Here at BEB Troy does a bit of everything including Service on bikes, Sales, and Warranty support for our Customers. Outside of BEB Troy enjoys trail running, nordic skiing, mountain biking and exploring beautiful wilderness around Bend with his family (& dog). Troy's favorite thing about electric bikes is the opportunity that it gives people of all ages to ride, and takes away many of the excuses to not ride!
Kathy is from beautiful NC, her first bike was gold with coaster brakes and handlebar streamers and eventually moving to a blue and white Raleigh commuter style bike. After finishing college at Appalachian State in Boone she moved to Bend and worked in counseling for several years while she and Sterling were raising kiddos and building up the bike shop. She's as stealth as her matte black Specialized Como and loves working in front of and behind the scenes of the shop.
