  1. Hello,

    I knew Gaynor many moons ago when he was the owner of Bull City Bikes in Durham. In fact, it was Gaynor who counselled me to buy a correctly sized bike, counsel I did not heed because I so coveted this Cannondale. Anyways, Gaynor is a bike person extraordinaire and it is good to know he is still working ‘in the biz.’

  2. In 1984, at Bull City Bikes, Gaynor sold me the Trek 610 that I still ride to this day, and helped me build the wheels and construct the gear ratio for my 1988 ride through the Sierra Nevada mountains–and those same wheels are still going strong! He’s the absolute when it comes to all things cycling!
