Meet Our Staff

Ginny Politz

Owner/Founder

In addition to keeping the eccentric cast of characters working at the shop in line, Ginny balances working on the sales floor, running offsite events, and is a strong advocate for bicycle and pedestrian safety in the community. Her many hats keep her vital to the Bikesport mission and to the organizations to which she gives her time. 

Likes:  Travelling, Cycling, and Christmas

Dislikes:  Horror Movies, Rap music, and hot weather

Chris "Topher"  

Store Manager est 1999

Topher has been in the game so long that the only question to ask is, “Is there anything he can’t do?” He’s our own personal encyclopedia of all things bike. Along with all of his gear knowledge, he knows how to send your bike out of our shop in style. He’s always up to date with the hottest trends in the industry. He also races in the SS Expert and Elite Open classes for our Mountain Bike Team. When he’s not in the shop, you can most likely find him spending time with his dog, hitting the trails, or drinking coffee at his favorite local spot.                  .

Likes: good music and great coffee.

Dislikes: chain restaurants and cheap beer.

 
 

Steve

est 2013

Steve’s been working in the industry since he was 15 years old. That’s 9 years of working with bikes. You can regularly find him riding on the local trails when he’s not in the shop. Steve works on the sales floor helping to get our customers outfitted with the best products for their cycling goals. He knows his stuff. If you run into him at the shop, you’re bound to learn something new.

Likes: Dr. Who, strong coffee, and aged whiskey.

Dislikes: anything decaf.

James "Legs"

est 2014

James is a jack of all trades. But, we got lucky that bikes happen to be his hobby, his passion, and his career.  He's been working on bikes for twenty-five years, so it makes sense that his cycling crosses all genres. James is our go to person for getting the perfect fit for our customers and their bikes. When he's not riding, he's usually listening to or playing music, and he loves jamming with other musicians.

Likes: running, riding, getting into trouble.

Dislikes: tribute bands.

Nick

est 2014

Nick has been working on bikes consistently for the past 4 years. Although he’s relatively new to being a mechanic, he isn’t new to bikes. And like many of our mechanics, he’s been working on his own bikes for a long time. Mountain biking is his favorite, hands down. And when he’s not in the shop fixing bikes, he’s off tinkering with cars.

Likes: adventures, backpacking, and camping.

Dislikes: centipedes and humidity.

Cailin

est 2015

Cailin is one of the newest members of the team. She helps with social media and event planning. She can often be found at off-site events promoting the Bikesport mission. If you catch her in the shop, be sure to say “hello” and see what kinds of great events Bikesport has coming up!

Likes: old books, good coffee and anything outdoors.

Dislikes: nutmeg and jellyfish.
