About the Author
Christopher Wiggins began his career in the bike business in 1988, and has been the owner of A1 Cyclery in Indianapolis, Indiana, since 2003. Like most people, he stayed in the business out of a love for bicycles and the lifestyle that surrounds them. While never considering himself a racer, he has competed in duathlon, cyclocross, and 24-hour adventure races. He's more likely now to be found on a local greenway, or riding his bike to work. He currently serves on the board of directors of INDYCOG, a bicycle advocacy group for the city of Indianapolis.
