WALKER WILKSON, Service Manager

Walker’s love for bicycles grew in theunlikeliest of cities –the car-centric Houston, TX. Walker first began repairing bicycles as a commuter in Houston when a flat left him four miles from home, and he decided to pursue wrenching as a full-time career after moving toWashington, DC. Walker loves books, bicycles, beer, and his wife but not in that order. His ideal day involves a Sturmey-Archer 3 speed hub overhaul and an ideal ride involves panniers and a tent.
