The seed of this idea was sewn back in 1994, when my wife, Sally, and I were driving home from the Ohio State Fair through a little town and saw a Bicycle Shop for sale. For the rest of the drive, we talked about owning our own shop and even thought of inquiring about the cost of buying that shop. We were living just outside of Dayton, OH at the time. I was in the Air Force and stationed at Wright-Patterson AFB. Both of us are history buffs, so we'd been to the Wright museum in Dayton as well as the Air Force museum. Given our circumstance we didn't pursue that opportunity but over the years we've casually revisited the idea - sometimes adding a coffee shop in the mix of what we would offer. Now, 18 years and two careers later, the opportunity to realize that dream presented itself. At first it was still little more than a passing thought but the more we talked about it and thought about how that dream started and more importantly where it started, the name, "Two Brothers Bicycles", inspired by the Wright brothers just seemed like the right name for our shop.
We have great admiration for the Wright Brothers - they were the underdogs of their day, yet approached their goal in a methodical, yet innovative way. At "Two Brothers Bicycles", we aspire to be as innovative in our own way - to offer customers a different kind of buying experience. And while we certainly want to cater to and provide exceptional service for our neighbors who are biking enthusiasts, our goal and focus will be to do everything we can to create new biking enthusiasts.

In the 16 years I've been biking in Colorado, I've discovered numerous Colorado companies offering great biking gear. Another goal for "Two Brothers Bicycles" is to highlight those local vendors - large and small - who make great bikes or great bike gear. By doing so we hope to inspire other potential entrepreneurs to take a shot at an idea they may have noodling on the back burner.
