Meet the Staff
Roger, Ivan, Joe, and Toni
A group photo, L to R, Roger, Joe, Paigee, and Toni. (Not pictured, Ivan, Tron and Kong.) This was a whimsical day, as you can see.
Roger, the owner, started working at Pedal Pusher Bike Shop in 1968, while he was a student at Columbia University. He took over ownership in '69. It was 240 square feet on a sidestreet, with 24 rental bikes, open only on weekends. By 1984, Roger had moved the shop to its present location on Second Avenue and expanded to sell new bikes and run a bicycle touring business in Jamaica and the Bahamas. His article, "The Sounds a Bicycle Makes," was published in Bicycling Magazine in 1979. Married to Kathleen, whom he met at the shop in 1973, they have one daughter Kasey. Roger is working on a novel and tries valiantly to speak French, play the violin, and teach skiing.
He might be older than you think.
His most fun is to attend technical training from Campagnolo, Shimano, Mavic, SRAM, Rockshox, Avid, Hayes, Trek, Raleigh, Park, and anyone else who will let him play with their technical equipment.
Ivan emigrated from Roumania with experience as a competent bike technician and outdoor tour guide, and a master's degree in anthropology. He speaks about four languages, depending how you count them. (In November 2011, Ivan continued his emigration and relocated to Denver. We still keep in touch.)
Joe's contagious smile emphasizes his honest desire to make you love your bike riding experience. He is a student at Hunter College. Government or physics.
Toni has a background in air conditioning, plumbing, and construction. He loves to work on bicycles as much as he loves Italian cooking. Also, he likes reggae and skateboarding. Born in Ithaca, NY, he has lived in Florida, Arizona, California, and now New York.
Paigee has worked here part-time for three years. He has a master's in biochemistry. He speaks Mandarin and bicyclese fluently. He is temporarily on a leave of absence while preparing for a career in forensic police work.
Tron will be a student at Hunter College. Like all of us, he loves bikes, especially his personal Bianchi. (This is not his Bianchi.)
(Pictured with Joe and Roger) Kong is especially useful when we have really tight bolts to undo, bent frames to straighten, heavy boxes to bring up from the basement and also occasional crowd control. In his free time, he teaches knitting and competes in the international caber toss. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caber_toss if you're curious.) Kong has extensive touring experience in Africa and Asia. He is a vegetarian, and works for peanuts (or bananas.)
