Meccanico di Bici
Jim Potter officially began his bike shop career in 1986 at International Bike Shop in Garden(not!) City, Michigan, after a few years of wrenching for a local church touring group. PTL! After moving to Colorado in the early 90's he slung wrenches at some of Boulder's premier shops including CycleLogic, Morgul-Bismark and Pro Peloton. A few diversions with companies like Schwinn, Scott, Yeti and Maverick led Potter back to wrenching full time in 2002 for Vecchio's. A one time BMX grommet, cycle-tourist and former Cat. 2 road / Expert MTB racer, Potter brings a diverse cycling background to Vecchio's. A family man, Potter currently splits his precious riding time between road, mountain and 'cross with an emphasis on having fun with his riding friends.
Fit Guru / Philosopher
Joe Hughes' cycling odyssey began with his first Italian road bike and the tutelage of infamous Texas cycling legend Joe Young. Later at school in the late 70's in Gunnison, CO, Joe worked with many local racers and began to focus on how they fit their machines. Joe's fitting philosophy and methods are a culmination of nearly 40 years in the trenches, not the result of any bike brands weekend fit seminars. Joe has plied his trade at many marquee shops in the SF Bay Area and around Colorado; including Marina Cycles in San Francisco, The Tune-Up in Gunnison, Denver Spoke in Denver and Morgul-Bismark in Boulder. A self-described bike snob, Joe only rides custom Italian made Dario Pegoretti bicycles.
