Bike Shop Department Co-Head
Involved Since: June 2019
Crucible Staff Since: August 2019
Department(s): Bike Shop



Jared fell in love with bicycle mechanics working at an all-volunteer community workshop where patrons worked and learned alongside the staff, providing service while passing on the skills to prepare folks for the next time things go awry. He sees bicycle mechanics as an accessible introduction to mechanical systems, as well as an avenue for developing general diagnostic skills, ultimately hoping to pique interest further into such things as machine tools, as it has led him. He dreams of a sustainable future where we all live simpler, healthier, more self-sufficient lives, with bicycles (or bike-like vehicles) providing clean, healthy, and reliable transportation to all.
