CHS Uptown Bikes

chSBIKES sidebar-240Bike repair and design go hand-hand-in-hand … Well, OK, so that’s a stretch. But as the world gets increasingly digital, we find that working on tangible things with real-world heft can be immensely rewarding — and surprisingly instructive. Dan Conover earned his certification from United Bicycle Institute in Portland, Ore., in 2010. After working in a local shop for about a year, he started his own mobile repair service in 2012. Today Dan keeps the neighborhood’s bikes running — and maintains the fleet at Google’s sprawling Berkeley County campus. Naturally, our joint interest in cycling prompted some artistic endeavors, which led to Uptown BikesĀ products for purchase.
