Position at TPC: Front of House Associate

What I ride: 2017 Diamondback Haanjo Trail

Why I ride it: Drop bars, disc brakes, big tires, the perfect recipe for all day fun! Diamondback offers an awesome industry deal, and when I saw the specs of this new Haanjo, I knew it’d be the perfect platform to build up my dream gravel bike.

Fun Facts: I built this bike out of the box on a Friday, and was riding it 100 miles over the Colorado trail that Sunday.
