We Are a Rider's Shop
Charlie Ellis - Charlie comes to us from Durango, Colorado. Durango is to cycling what Nashville is to country music. Charley grew up in Durango and rode under the tutelage of legends like Ned Overend, Travis Brown, and John Tomac. His everyday rides growing up included the Colorado Trail, Hermosa Creek and Horse Thief. He’s the guy that will beat you to the top of the climb, and two turns down the descent, be out of site once again. And we will not even get into his aerial prowess. He worked for several, legendary shops in Durango, and is a Master Mechanic - He's also one of the most humble, friendly people you'll ever meet.
Alex Gibson (Gibbers) - A native of Palo Alto, and graduate of SO-CAL’s Claremont College (where he ran the school’s on campus bike shop), Alex has been with Big Swingin’ Cycles longer than many shops have been open around the City. Gibber’s abilities on the bike and in the workshop are noteworthy, to put it mildly. Don’t be surprised if he offers you a beer if it’s after 6 and you’re lucky enough to be in the shop.
Brian Bruckner (Double B) Brian is the founder of Big Swingin’, back in 2000. Growing up in the central valley, he was always around wheels: dirt bikes, bmx, then road & mountain bikes. Living on the central coast in the 80’s and attending Cal Poly SLO, he was an early triathlete, and mountain biker (“back in the day” as they say). He now lives in Marin County and has a massive portfolio of trail knowledge for all of California.
