Steve's Industry Experience

  • BMX Racing:  Started racing as a kid at local tracks in Los Angles CA. Venice, Carson, and other California tracks.   Turned Pro in 1979 & was sponsored by          BC & Schwinn.  After taking a break from BMX returned to the sport and raced the Vet Pro & Legends class.  I thank Turnell Henry for teaching me how to race bmx many years ago.
  • Mountain Bike Racing:  Began racing mountain bikes in 1988.  Raced many different downhill races & was sponsored by Foes Mountain bikes, Lenz Sports Bikes, Odyssey, Vigor, Echo helmets, CTI knee brace, Hot Shoppe designs, ATI grips, Club Roost and Power Bar.
  • I have to thank Rodney Davidson for getting me back riding and shown me the ropes of racing mountain bikes.  Plus credit for giving me the outlet into designing bicycle parts, as well as R.J.
  • I thank  Bicycles, Susan & Wen Hsieh, for letting me be a part of the company for a bit to promote at race events, I had fun and learned so much. 
  • I thank Motocross for always being in my blood.  Watched the sport for years and even ride and a handful of racing.  Makes bicycle racing skills come alive, faster smother and just so much fun to do it all. 
  • I thank the Tranberg family, for taking me in.  When I needed it the most.
  • I thank my Kids: Lissa for making me the best Dad ever, when I never knew I could be & Mikaylin and Nathan for keeping me young and teaching me its okay ti cry.
  • I thank Mark from Ballwin Cycles, for his great friendship, and knowledge and respect he has for people, he even helped me open my shop.  When times are hard, he seems to lift my spirits, by knowing what it took for him and passes that info to me.  
  • To my Brother Mike R.I.P. and his Kids:  Luke, Layne and Estella, plus My other Oregon family members, for making me feel like a cool Uncle.
  • I thank my Wife Kimberly Eswine Padilla most of all.  Thank you for the Dance in life, holding on to me when the roads are tough.  Kissing me saying thank you for being who I am.  Making me feel like this song is about me, so play it load and give the glory to God.  
  • All the above and more I did not say, Have helped me 100% to becoming a racer in the two wheel sports and product designing, and now a bicycle shop owner.  I could not have done it without you.  Thank you

"It is our prayer that God blesses our business and that we will bless others through our business."

*In efforts to help others we do accept used bicycle donations.  Depending on what kind of shape the bike is in it is either fixed up or the parts are salvaged to use to repair other bikes.  These bikes are then donated to different charity organizations or people in need.
