The founder of Cyclical Motion LLC, Mike Genge, was trained and certified as a master mechanic at the esteemed Barnett Bicycle Institute in Colorado. He has over 20 years of experience building and repairing bicycles at some of the most reputable bike stores in the country. In 2003, Mike trained with the former Official US Olympic / National Team master frame builder, Koichi Yamaguchi, at the Yamaguchi Frame Building School.
Mike earned a BFA from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. While gaining academic and professional experience in architectural design, industrial design, and installation art, Mike found a way to combine his passions for mechanics and aesthetics. His attention to detail and respect for craftsmanship is evident in all of his work- whether it be fixing a flat or designing a custom frame.
In his younger days, Mike raced with no-one of major acclaim, and to no particularly great result. Much fun was had. Burritos were consumed. Today Mike has more fun riding as he pleases, as far as time lets him, as long as his legs will carry him and with the wind, preferably at his back.
