A.K.A "Schmidt" or "The Bludgond."
I've been wrenching for over 5 years now. The last three have been at Dirty Harry's. I've been riding and XC skiing for 16 years. I've been a drummer by night for 30 years. Almost deaf, almost blind, but still going strong.

John more than likely puts in more miles in the dark that anyone we know. Riding at least an hour almost everyday, usually at night, no matter what the weather, around the Frick park area. If you pass someone riding at midnight on a tuesday in that area, there is a good chance it is John.

I grew up in Longwood, Florida, right outside of Orlando. My bike shop roots go back to 1997, when my parents started their own shop, where I worked until 2013. I’ve been involved in cycling since the mid 90s — from BMX and MTB to road and touring. In the late 90s and early- to mid-2000s, I mostly rode BMX and MTB, but since then I’ve become involved in all styles of cycling. Some of my favorite places in Pittsburgh to ride include The Wheel Mill, Frick Park, North Park, and South Park, as well as mixed-surface routes around town. I have a part-time job outside of Dirty Harry’s brewing beer at Allegheny City Brewery. If you ever find yourself in the Northside, stop by and check it out!
