We recently hired Ron Brandt because we were looking for someone with some experience to help us kids move this shop forward. With 18 years in the cycling industry, Ron comes to us to assist with sales, service, and espresso making with the overarching title of Shop Manager.

Ron grew up ski racing in Minnesota, then spent time in Burlington, WA at Skagit Cycle moving from mechanic to service manager and finally to shop manager. He moved to Whitefish two years ago with his wife, Marty and dog, Dusty and helped manage Village Rentals (formerly Snowghost) at Whitefish Mountain Resort.

An active board member of FFT (soon to be FAMB), and a familiar face at any trail building operation in the Flathead, Ron takes pride in our community and is happy to share his knowledge and love of the Flathead Valley. Like any good mechanic, he likes his coffee strong, his beer hoppy, his trails rugged and his workbench a state of controlled chaos. 

Stop in and ask for an espresso by Ron. He's been practicing.
