Volunteer of the Month: Tobi

Tobi has been volunteering at the Bicycle Exchange for about a year. He found out about the organization through the Google website, as an employee. When he chooses a bike to repair, he often picks one that looks cool, but those seem to be the ones with lots of repair challenges. His specialty is fixing the crank/bottom bracket (how the pedals attach to the bike). He's gotten a lot of practice adjusting it so that the pedals turn easily but aren't wobbly.
Originally from Pittsburgh, Tobi moved to California 3 years ago. When not working or fixing bikes, he enjoys working out with weights and playing chess and computer games. He says the most interesting place that he has traveled is India for work - there were lots of people and amazing food.
