Roger, the owner, started working at Pedal Pusher Bike Shop in 1968, while he was a student at Columbia University. He took over ownership in '69. It was 240 square feet on a sidestreet, with 24 rental bikes, open only on weekends. By 1984, Roger had moved the shop to its present location on Second Avenue and expanded to sell new bikes and run a bicycle touring business in Jamaica and the Bahamas. His article, "The Sounds a Bicycle Makes," was published in Bicycling Magazine in 1979. Married to Kathleen, whom he met at the shop in 1973, they have one daughter Kasey. Roger is working on a novel and tries valiantly to speak French, play the violin, and teach skiing.
He might be older than you think.
His most fun is to attend technical training from Campagnolo, Shimano, Mavic, SRAM, Rockshox, Avid, Hayes, Trek, Raleigh, Park, and anyone else who will let him play with their technical equipment.
