From the time he received his first new bicycle at the age of 5, to watching the drama of the 1989 Tour de France unfold, to starting his first cycling company, Philip Martindale has been fascinated with bicycles.
Having spent the past 17+ years working in the bicycle industry, Philip has managed several bicycle shops, worked for a leading bicycle manufacturer in both product development and sales, and built bicycle wheels exclusively for 4 years under a previously licensed brand.
Philip has also raced competitively for many years as a USA Cycling Category 2 and was a member of Team USA at an ITU World Championship.

Bill Martindale has spent 50+ years making things go faster and work more efficiently. Bill spent the 60s, 70s, and much of the 80s testing rockets and other aircraft at AEDC's supersonic wind tunnel in Tullahoma, Tennessee.
