William Ruehle

William has been wrenching on and racing bicycles of all kinds since the age of 14. He's lived and ridden up and down the east coast and across the south, ending up in Portland three years ago. He's most at home riding mountain bike trails in the back-country, but gets a kick out of riding almost anything with wheels.
