Salida Bike Company
Anton van Leuken – Owner & Head Mechanic
After volunteering for years at Recycle Ithaca’s Bikes in New York, Anton ran his own bike repair shop for two years. Then he moved to Salida in 2004 and worked as a professional bike mechanic for eight years before opening Salida Bike Company. Anton not only brings a wealth of experience to the shop, he grooves on obscure bicycle technical facts that escape most of us. Anton holds a bachelor’s degree in English and is also a graduate of United Bicycle Institute. In 2012 he received his Park Tool Tech Summit Certification.
