Most mountain bike enthusiasts know something of the Breezer’s illustrious history. Some might expect pure tradition from Joe, but mountain bikes have come a long way since 1977, and Joe’s focus is not on tradition. He likes things to work. And he spends a lot of time analyzing how and why things work. When a rider gets on a bike, it’s performance that counts. Performance comes from the integration of many things: high standards, the painstaking workmanship of frame builders, carefully chosen parts and Joe’s rigorous, thoughtful approach to design. From his unmatched 34 years of knowledge and experience gained as a cyclist, framebuilder, racer and designer, he distills simplicity.
