FIVE THINGS WITH MARTIN AND TRICIA OF SOLID PHASE DESIGN

FIVE THINGS WITH MARTIN AND TRICIA OF SOLID PHASE DESIGN

FIVE THINGS is a feature on the Banjo Brothers Blog. These short interviews explore life and bicycles with notable people. We caught up this week with Martin Leugers (yes, it's true, he's one of the 'real'  banjo brothers) and his wife and business partner, Tricia Wright.

Wright and Leugers are industrial designers and the founders of San Francisco-based Solid Phase Design. With a squadron (no exaggeration) of bikes in their garage prepped and at the ready for riding, there are bikes for every task from slow-rolls to fast-rides including sweet loaners for guests and chopper-bikes, a pre-requisite for their founding membership in C.R.U.D., the legendary cabal of "chopper-riding-urban-dwellers."

 We hope you enjoy this week's Five Things.

FIVE THINGS: MARK EGELAND CYCLIST AND GENERAL MANAGER CAT TRIKES

Trained as a civil engineer, he realized he wanted to design more than dirt, roads, and retention ponds so he became a professional mapper and cartographer. In 2007 he became a partner and General Manager at Catrike and has helped the company grow exponentially ever since. He's most passionate about design and manufacturing and loves being involved in the product development process.

We hope you enjoy this week's Banjo Brothers Five Things.
