Founded in 2007 by a former professional mountain biker living out of his Volkswagen Bus, The Pro’s Closet started as a hobby and quickly grew into an easy way for professional cycling teams to sell their used gear.  Since then, TPC has become a highly-regarded e-commerce destination for people around the world to buy and sell previously-owned bikes and gear.
