Shimano Multi-Service

Shimano Multi-Service technicians have been supporting riders for over 34 years at everything from regional rides and races to elite world class competitions. Our mechanics are part of a global team that serves as the official technical support for USA Cycling and the UCI.

Samuel Elenes

Born in Cali, Raised in Los Angeles.
Cut my teeth on the Elite and WorldTour Circuits.
For the time not spent turning a wrench, you might find me behind a camera lens, on the trails, or in the kitchen. If our paths should cross, just know that I'm steady with a wrench and quick with a laugh, so drop by and say ‘Hullo’.

Gabe Rodrigues

Born and raised in Cali, love to be outdoors. Nothing is more relaxing to me than being outside enjoying mother nature, whether I am on two wheels, two feet, or rafting downriver. I started cycling seriously with a small group of friends over a decade ago, and grew to love the sport so much I don’t ever want to leave it behind. When I’m not riding or wrenching on bikes I enjoy working on cars with my close friends. If I’m not exercising my brain trying to figure something out I enjoy learning new things. If you see me out on the road, feel free to say hi and drop some knowledge on me!

John Alfaro

Born and raised in the foothills of Southern California. When not wrenching away you can find me taking full advantage of the California weather on the Road, MTB and/or BMX as well as in the water. Im a sucker for cookies, coffee and bad jokes so feel free to stop on by with them all!

Brandon Taylor

Brandon is originally from McCall, Idaho and can now be found splitting his time between San Clemente, California and a Big Blue Van at a bike race near you. When not on the road he enjoys traveling to new places, spending time outdoors, photography, and relearning how to ride his bike. If you see him on the road be sure to give him a warm cup of coffee, some cookies, or at the very least, a high five!

Shimano STEPS Demo Tour Team

Meet the Shimano STEPS demo drivers. They’ll be traveling throughout the country to key consumer events offering e-MTB demos featuring LINKGLIDE, FREE SHIFT and AUTO SHIFT technologies.

Adam Kidd

Shimano STEPS East Coast Demo Driver

Originally from Tampa, FL, Adam now lives in Charleston, SC with his wife and 2-year-old son. When he’s not on the road Adam enjoys spending time with his family, riding his local trails, and exploring gravel roads throughout the Lowcountry. Adam loves to meet new people at events and hear about their experiences on the bike. He’ll also never turn down a bag of Sour Patch Kids or a high five.

Robert Plumb

Shimano STEPS Mountain States Demo Driver

Robert loves to be outdoors but especially on two wheels. Bikes make him feel free, whether it’s a long sustained climb or a ripping single track decent through the woods that’s where he is happiest. When he isn’t on the bike you can find him searching for a great photo spot or in the winter ripping corduroy on skis.

Josh Jones

Shimano STEPS West Coast Demo Driver

I was born and raised in southern California and grew up at the beach and on the mountains. I share my passion for mountain biking with my 9-year-old son and love enjoying the outdoors together. I strongly believe that laughter is the best medicine and that having fun promotes a better way of living. Hope to see you on the trail!
