The Berkshire Bike and Board Team

Steffen Root - Owner

7 in 10 chance that this guy sold you a bike, and his favorite hobby is getting people hooked on Shimano Di2 and Specialized TURBO!  On his days off he can be found weed wacking and pumping up his kids bounce house.

Dave Clark - Owner

If you have been involved in the mountain bike community within a 50 mile radius then you know Dave as the ringleader and craft beer hander outer.  On his days off you can find Dave bringing his kids to basketball and hitting some MTB trails in between games.

Nora Fenner - Great Barrington Manager

When not on the sales floor in GB, Nora can be found leading the Wednesday night ladies road ride or leading a Monday morning yoga class.

Nic Piretti - Pittsfield Manager & Bike Fit Specialist

Ever wondered who drives the sweet tricked out Toyota pickup outside the shop?  I think he has swapped out every stock thing on the truck and customized it.  Nic loves mountain biking, pranking Levi and making people walk like a duck when they ask him a PT question.

Dave Funk - Great Barrington Head Mechanic

Veteran auto mechanic and race car driver turned bicycle enthusiast. On the weekends you can find Dave cruising the hills on his Specialized Como with his girl friend, and drinking a home brew.

Levi Z Brown - Great Barrington Service Writer

Have any questions about a Santa Cruz MTB or Fox Shox?  Levi will know the answer without having to look it up.  Need a funny joke, just ask Levi.  Need to play a prank on Jay?  Levi will drop what he is doing to help.  He likes drinking a La Croix seltzer.

Jaryn Pierson - Business Strategy & Buyer

Barspins, town line sprints, enduro wins off the couch... Jaryn has it like that.  He is also good at reading, cooking and wearing clogs.  On his days off he can be found reading the newspaper and going to bed at 7:45pm.

Jay Elling - Marketing & E-commerce Manager

You know that guy that always throws down the watts at the BBB holiday party? THIS IS HIM!  Known to help a customer buy an inner tube and then sell them a new e-bike.  You can find Jay cruising with his family on some rollerskates or riding local dirt roads at 6am on his days off.

Sean Guy - Great Barrington Mechanic

When he is not pumping up your tires, Sean can be found diggin sweet jumps and sending his bike off big jumps. He is the guy behind the PitViper sunglasses.

Sue Sacco - Pittsfield Retail Professional

Unicycles, MTB and tandem bikes are all part of her quiver, hard to say which she likes more... Either way you will find her on the trail shredding her favorite back yard singletrack trail network.

Bob Bertolino - Pittsfield Inventory Specialist

One of the most personable sales people on board at BBB, and can easily get on your level to satisfy any bike needs.  Bob loves to bike with his kids and drive around in his Subaru Outback while listening to hip hop.

Steve Witek - Pittsfield Service Writer & Head Mechanic

Newer addition to the Pittsfield shop, head mechanic with tons of experience. Quiet but sociable and approachable. Steve can be found riding his mountain bike around Greylock Glen, painting a mural with some spray paint or creating works of art with old bike parts.

Tucker Shearer - Great Barrington Mechanic

Tucker likes turtles.

Chris Hoover - Great Barrington Retail Professional

Is your TPS system is down? Chris can help transcode the cross-platform address so we can program the BIOS bandwidth!   Need a coat hook hung on the wall?  Chris will whip that up in a jiffy.   Oh yeah his dogs names are MegaByte and GigaByte.

Andrew Gillman - Pittsfield Retail Professional

Head of janitorial and overall appearances of the Pittsfield location aka Assistant Manager.  Andrew is pretty much the North county version of Seb... We are taking applications for DJ names for Andrew, he was pretty good at the BBB holiday party.

Wyeth Curtis - Great Barrington Retail Professional

No Wyeth is not an offspring of Steffen Root, but he is following the pathway Steffen has laid down through Waldorf schooling and the love of cycling.  Look out for Wyeth on the CX course!

John Forsberg - Monday Night Shift Coverer

Looking for that sweet new hack for your broken fatbike, John can help you out to get back out on to the trail.  Ask him about his speed clapping capabilities.

Craig Walton - Bicycle Delivery

More experience in the Berkshire cycling community than Steffen and Dave combined.  He remembers when people used to glue their tires on and all bike routes were uphill both clockwise and counter clockwise, while riding barefoot in 8 inches of snow.  Don't even mention disc brakes around Craig.
