Director of Cycling and Maintenance
A transplant from Syracuse, NY, Chad began his career in bicycle mechanics in Astoria, NY at a local shop while pursuing his passion for the arts. However, it was not until he moved down south, where he had the opportunity to work with some great folks from Greece and Columbia, that he was truly introduced to all things cycling repair. While art has remained a passion of Chad’s, he always fell back into a bike shop to pay the bills. After 5 different shops and 20 years of wrenching, Chad calls himself a “jack of some trades, with much more knowledge on bike repair than an air conditioner.” But do not let his modesty fool you, Chad is known not only as the Hotel Domestique resident Cycling Mechanic, but also the go-to expert for just about anything mechanical.
