Fred supports the following organizations:

Vecchio’s Bicicleteria (Boulder, Colorado). This is what your LBS should be. Most shops are designed to sell bikes and service is an after-thought. Owners Sean Bragstad and Peter Chisholm started the shop with service in mind. They’re the best around.

Excel Sports (Boulder, Colorado). The largest selection of cycling accessories and equipment around.

Mark Nobilette (Longmont, Colorado). For frame repairs and painting. Mark is the best in the business.

Excalibur Sound (Denver, Colorado). Power supplies, sound systems, electronics, lighting and equipment sales and installation for support vehicles. These guys can rig up just about anything.

Boulder College of Massage Therapy. The largest and most well-known school of massage therapy in the United States.

Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. Nobody provides a better bike fit than Andy Pruitt...nobody!

University of Colorado (Sports Medicine, Family Medicine and CU Hospital). Wouldn't be here without them. Special thanks to Dr. Lonnie Granston, Dr. Cory Sperry and Dr. Eric McCarty.
