If you don't know where something is, just ask this NoPo trivia record holder. Responsible for purchasing, Eva keeps her diplomatic and wrenching skills honed to step in at a moment's notice to make everything better. She enjoys late-night bocce, negronis, and opera. Eva was transplanted via Walla Walla from upstate New York, and joined Clever Cycles as a mechanic in 2010, then as an owner in 2014 after she was promised fame and fortune.
Dean has been with Clever Cycles since the beginning. As a founding member he can share the trials, tribulations and absolute joy that comes with growing a business. Dean is our guru of dollars and sense. On the weekends he's been known to play guitar, drink Maker's Mark, and stay up way past your bedtime. You may see him riding his French Bulldog Diva around on an electrified Douze cargo bike, but he keeps a few other bikes up his sleeve just in case.
Todd is curator of products from around the globe, lighting director, and he's been writing the Clever Cycles blog, mostly, since before there was a Clever Cycles. Todd loves making fit tweaks to help people become more comfortable and effective on their bikes, and also seeing babies come back from their first rides on their parents' bikes. He's done happily without a car through his adult life, even into graybeard parenthood, riding longtails and Bromptons since 2001. Todd has read a lot of books, and even typeset a few, but never foresaw the persistence of paper, nor of phones since email made them obsolete in about 1993. (Seriously, it's not you: it's him. He doesn't take calls.) Oh, and back in 2007 he co-founded Clever Cycles.
Jeremy may have been born with a wrench in one hand and a hammer in the other. He could fix your bike, your car, your camera, and then catch a trout for dinner. He isn't afraid of getting hurt and says brakes just slow you down. If you ask him how many bikes he owns, he's likely to change the subject. Of course, we know the ideal number is n+1.
Tim has lived and worked in California, New York, Georgia and Minnesota, but could not resist Portland's siren song. Partly the food, partly the killer free piles, but mostly the incredible gas station beer selection. The owner of only two bikes, we say incredible willpower, he says incredible indecision. When he's not at the shop, he's probably in sweatpants, facing the beer cooler at the Shell station, plagued by the tyranny of choice.
Anna came to us by way of Oklahoma, a place many of us have only flown over (it's the one that looks like a frying pan). If you purchased a Brompton in Norman, OK, then she probably sold it to you. She rocks a classic (and purple) Bridgestone step-through city bike with all the required accoutrements--Brooks saddle, kickstand, front basket. Rumor has it, she was a backup dancer in an MC Hammer music video. She knows chickens, bikes and the healing power of laughter.
Back in the summer of 2011 Luke started at Clever, only to leave us for greener pastures in 2013. Well, he must have liked us well enough because he's back in the saddle again (sorry, not sorry). Luke is one of those creative entrepreneurial types who's always scheming up something rad--likely with a classic aesthetic. Also, FYI, Luke prefers tall cans of cheap American suds to the microbrew hoppy stuff. And cheeseburgers. All of the cheeseburgers.
