Dan Trout

Service

Service Experience Since 2009

Dan trout was born and raised in Orangevale, ca. started riding at the ripe young age of 3 years old. He watched the movie “RAD” religiously growing up. He rode his bike everywhere. By the time he got his license he was doing weekend trips to out of town skate parks as far as Pennsylvania.

Dan didn’t start riding geared bikes until some friends were talking about doing a long distance ride from San Francisco to Santa Cruz. After that Dan was hooked on strapping gear onto to his bike and pedaling out of town every chance he could get. He started in the industry in 2009 when he realized he could take his passion of working on his and his friend’s bikes as a job. He got hooked again, when the mountain bike was introduced to him and things were all downhill from there.

Dan’s passions are riding his bikes, building new trails for the mountain bike community, fishing and cooking. Every once in -awhile Dan goes on long rides on his bike as far as out of the state and sometimes out the country. He mentions the best part of traveling is meeting the odd characters in between. One dream of Dan’s is to ride from Alaska to the bottom of South America. One day.

That bike got ruined 2 years later when his cow got out and sat on it in the barn.  He completely overhauled his first bike when he was 14 including overhauling the freewheel. He also built his own front wheel drive recumbent bike that same year. A few years later he got into single speed mountain biking. In 2004 he got into riding fixed gears and completed the Sierra Century Double Metric on one. Most recently he has been riding single speed cyclocross when he can keep air in the tires trying to keep up with mountain bikers.
