ABOUT BICYCLE DEPOT KANSAS CITY
Owner-Operator Dave Reinert had long dreamed of opening a bike shop in the Waldo-Brookside area so that he could finally move his bike repair operations out of his basement. Having serviced bikes in Kansas City since he graduated from UMKC nearly twenty years ago, Dave brings to the table an immense technical knowledge along with a love of cycling and the local community. In addition to his years as a freelance bike mechanic, Dave has managed bike shops in the area, worked for various non-profit groups to provide bicycles to low-income individuals and teach underprivileged children how to ride. He looks forward to continuing to serve his community's biking needs and getting to work on some really awesome bicycles.
Certified bike technician Bruce Homstad is the brains behind the operation--at least that's what Dave says. Bruce's incredible skill, attention to detail, and years of experience make him an official bike whisperer. There is no one out there who can match his ability to maintain and repair bicycles. Bruce may look familiar to local residents--he worked at local fixture Waldo Family Bicycle and has been a KC bike technician for nearly 30 years! Feel free to stop in and say hi if you've missed seeing him around the old place.
