Chris, an engineer by trade, joined Harlan's in March 2011.
Chris has been in love with bikes since purchasing his first bike at age 7 with allowance money. A chrome Huffy with rear saddle baskets, it transported Chris to the grocery store for his mom, and to baseball practice and games. Seven years and a couple of Schwinn's later, he scored his first "bike shop quality" bike – a brand new Fuji road bike for $150. Fast cars, Marines Corps, college, family, and starting a career put cycling on hold until co-workers invited him to join their team for RAGBRAI 2001.
Chris remains a devout road biker. But in a weak moment, you can talk him into an occasional gravel or mountain bike ride.
Sales and Fit Specialist
Rick is a long time runner, cyclist, and golfer. His first love is the open road, but he has also come close to death on a mountain bike in Colorado.
Rick is a certified fitting specialist and will help fit you to your style and keep you happy on your bicycle.
Kevin is a master bicycle mechanic who has been working on bikes since the Reagan administration. He can build you a new wheel or salvage wheels most mechanics would not even attempt to true.
Kevin is an avid road rider, mountain biker, gravel grinder, and was a BMXer in his younger days. His bike soccer skills aren't too bad either.
When you bring in your bike for repair or service, we always start with a free, no-obligation estimate of the work that will be needed. One of our service pros will discuss the problem with you and will carefully explain what work should be done, always respecting your choices and your budget.
We'll take care of it so you won't have to.
Whatever your riding style – mountain biking, recumbent biking, fat tire biking, or touring – we carry bicycle replacement parts and can do bike repair on all major brands (not department store bikes), so just bring your bike in!
Mechanic / Sales / Group Ride Leader
Chris wears a lot of hats in the store and has the experience to back it up. A Sioux Falls native, Chris graduated from SDSU with a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering. He's been with Harlan's for about five years. He particularly enjoys custom wheel building and custom bike building. When out of the shop he can be found cyclocrossing and mountain biking and occasional gravel.
Chris specializes and is certified in probably any aspect of bike servicing that you will ever require, so ride with confidence.
In January of this year Greg was enjoying what he loved to do...riding in the Black Hills when he suffered a fatal heart attack. His passing was obviously unexpected and has created a void that will never be filled.
Greg developed an early taste for the freedom two wheels can provide that led to a lifetime of cycling adventures. From riding into town for baseball or the swimming pool as a child to squeezing the mountain bike into the dorm room between classes, then riding the 2010 Tour de Kota on a Schwinn purchased for $1.
Upon taking over Harlan’s Bike & Tour, Greg, along with fiance Nicole, planned to build not only a life together, but to continue the tradition of Harlan’s as a place for riders to realize the joy that Greg had embraced. Harlan’s will continue to honor Greg’s memory and share his love for riding.
To many more two-wheeled adventures...
