Todd W - Wheel Builder
Todd's bike adventure began like any kid in the Chicago suburbs in the 1960s - with a Schwinn Stingray and baseball cards clipped to the fenders. Soon, his family moved back to Santa Cruz and in the mid 70s he had two paper routes and a custom blue two-tone steel 10-speed.
After serving in the United States Air Force and a long career in IT as a private citizen, Todd decided to change things up, and entered the bicycle industry as a mechanic. Special thanks to Sarah, Lawrence, & Shawn of Epicenter Cycling and JoAnn of Bike Station/Bicycle Trip for giving Todd his first work in the industry.
In 2020, Todd was introduced to Jack B of Custom Wheel Builder by Wilkie & Chris of Elevation Wheel Company (a fantastic Colorado Springs full service bicycle shop). Todd has been building wheels for CWB ever since, to the delight of his coworkers and customers riding the wheels he's expertely built.
