Volunteer of the Month: Adam

adamAdam was born and raised here in Silicon Valley. He started volunteering at the Bicycle Exchange during the summers when he was in college - about 3 years ago. He enjoys fixing all of the bikes but especially likes the tall bikes because they are easier to test-ride. He's almost 6'5", so him test-riding the kids' bikes is comical. 

Adam has the patience for fine tuning derailleurs until they shift perfectly and truing wheels. He really enjoys helping the newer volunteers to fix the bikes and learn new skills. He says feel free to ask him for help.

His favorite bike to ride is a road bike that used to be his dad's - a Bianchi that is older than he is. When not volunteering at the Bicycle Exchange or working, Adam enjoys Magic: The Gathering card and board games.
