Inspiring Women Who Love Bikes
Last Thursday we got the chance to take part at the Bike Economics event, which showcased Portland women-owned bike businesses…. just like Epic! Sarah Mirk over at the Portland Mercury took time to ask some of the participants a few questions, and Epic made the cut.
I was working in a shop and building wheels there, but I opened up my own custom wheel building store Epic Wheel Works last year, in 2009.
Don’t most people hate building wheels?
You can go postal on a wheel for sure. Your OCD disorders come out. But you get to touch every spoke on it, I like it. Wheels are big but they take sort of a backseat for a lot of people. They don’t get the glamor frame building does!
