Chris and Christine Pieck are the owners, and they love bikes! Christine is a Massage Therapist that rides mountain bikes, road and family bikes. She spends most of her time tending to the future owners of the Trek Store, Danielle and Julia. Those that are in the shop often see them helping at events or riding their bikes around. Chris is the bikes for life kind of guy who has been working on bikes since he was big enough to use tools. He started working in a shop in Schenectady, NY in the mid ‘90s. Several years later he moved down to Baltimore, MD where he found work in a shop as mechanic and got to work with Trek VW racing team. Several years later in 2002 he started working at Trek Corporate. It was there that he set up shop and started answering phones for Trek and working with dealers all around the country. The final move was in 2010, when Chris and his family moved down to Greensboro, NC to open up the Trek Bicycle Store Greensboro.
Since opening, the shop and business have grown quickly. We have discovered the cycling community here in Greensboro is close, and we are here to serve your cycling needs! Come on in to the store and ask questions. Bring your bike if you need service! Once you come into the store you will realize that you have found the best service available in the Triad! You will not be disappointed.
|Steve has been at the store since day one. He is a roadie all the way with a passion for touring with solid commuting miles in fair weather. He is our ride leader for the C ride on Saturdays in season and he is usually riding on a steel steed. Steve is from Alamance County, served in the USAF from 75-79 and considers himself a local, organic cyclist. His favorite food is beer and his favorite recovery drink is beer. Steve would like to ride across America at some point and his motto is “15.2," which refers to the speed he travels. Come on in and test your knowledge of the local roads and weather forecast with Steve.|
|Andy started here in May of 2014 after he moved up from Florida, where he grew up. He was in search of bigger hills and a much better cyclecross race scene. His favorite place to ride is Warrior Creek and his recovery food of choice is a burger from The Porter House. He currently races for the Trek Cyclecross Collective, a grassroots racing program supported by Trek, Sram, Honey Stinger and when he is road racing and mountain biking you can see him in a Generals Team kit. Andy is our youngest employee and often asked during the day why he is not in school by our customers, but don’t worry, he is currently attending UNCG.|
|Stamps is easily a mountain biker through and through. His favorite trail is anything in Pisgah, where after a day of riding you can catch him eating Sushi and searching for a Dales Pale Ale. If you are from the area, you know Stamps won’t have to search long for the Dales. But good Sushi on the other hand, isn’t too easy to come by. Stamps attended Guilford College and has a degree in Pottery but found his love in wrenching on bicycles. His favorite bike currently is a Trek Fuel Ex 9 and when he is not riding, he is rapping about how he is going to get out on his next ride.|
|Brad has been riding since 1991 with his favorite trail being the Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park in Boone. You can thank him for commuting tips with a Guinness (favorite beer). A few years into his cycling he decided he would go to Alaska and be a guide in 1996 and 1997. I think you can say Alaska was where he found his love for seafood. Brad was born in Lumberton, NC but is not a Lumbee. You can also see Brad out on the local trails doing trail work on his free time. His career as a electrician ended when he started here at the Trek Store a few years ago and if you have any questions about a commuting route in the city or a local trail, he is a great one to ask!|
|Matt is a Florida Flatlander that joined us in 2015. It is tough to get him on a road bike because he absolutely fell in love with North Carolina when he made a trip up to Rocky Knob. Lower Black Mtn and Sycamore Cove Loop is his favorite ride. He will drink any North Carolina Brew after any ride and he is currently riding a Trek Fuel Ex 9. Surprisingly his favorite food is Pizza so paired with beer he is a very simple man. He is a Florida Gator fan so if you like, make sure to give him a hard time next time you see him.|
Karl comes to Greensboro by way of Lake Placid, NY. He turned in his snow skis for year round bicycle riding, we have to agree here at the shop. While Karl was in the shadows of the Adirondacks, he honed his mechanic skills between the snowy months working on downhill bikes and seeing 10 years of Ironman’s come and go. Karl moved down with his wife and dog in November 2015 and misses the downhill mountain biking available in the Northeast, but is looking forward to riding Bailey Mountain bike park in 2016 some time. He has recently found a favorite IPA at Gate City Growlers here in town. Karl will be applying his expertise in the Service Department here at The Trek Bicycle Store Greensboro, making sure we run the best mechanic army in the region. Come on in and say hi to Karl while you get your bike or bikes worked on.
Mike is an avid trail rider with a background in biomechanics. While from Greensboro, he doesn’t have to travel far for his favorite trail, Sycamore Ridge in Pisgah. His favorite food is Pizza with mushrooms and diced tomatoes, chased down with a craft beer. Mike wanted us to know that his favorite tire is the Bontrager XR3 and he thinks everyone should try them. Since Mike has experience working in the Human Performance Lab down at Furman University, he will be building his own lab with the latest technology in bicycle fitting here at the store. Come on in and ask about getting faster on your bike and find out how our motion capture system is truly the best in the industry.
Calvin has also been with us from the start in 2010. He and Steve often argue about what roads they saw paved for the first time in Greensboro. His bike of choice is a Trek Emonda SL and I think his favorite food is Carolina BBQ chased down with a cold beer. Calvin brings years of experience to the shop and a little OCD when it comes to helping keep the store clean. He is my Sunday inspector. While we keep the store somewhat clean during the week, Calvin puts the shine on when he is here. One thing you wouldn’t know about Calvin is he can play the Banjo with the best of them. We might start asking him to play on our patio some evenings, so keep an eye out for that new addition to our weekly agenda here.
