Customer Service Manager- Claudia is the smiling face that greets you when you come through our front door, and the cheerful voice that answers the phone. She keeps the rest of us on track, and makes sure that everything runs smoothly. Claudia first got involved with bikes and cycling culture when she met Paraic in the mid-1990’s in Dublin. At the time he didn’t have a car, so she ended up driving him to his races, being the broom wagon, and generally supporting him in his cycling endeavors. This was the beginning of her adventures in the organization and logistics side of road racing. Marriage, two kids and many years later, she has taken up riding her bike again and on the week ends can be found out riding, attending a mountain bike race or encouraging everyone on the group ride to have fun and stay safe.
Purchasing and Retail- Ron "RJ" Jensen has roots in the Arizona community going back over 20 years. With a strong background in road cycling, Ron spent many years developing through the road racing ranks, competing across Europe, Canada, Mexico and the United States. Having transitioned out of full time racing, Ron now focuses his passion for cycling into a mentorship role helping younger riders reach the next level in competition, and takes pride in assisting Cyclologic customers in reaching their cycling goals.
Cycling and Running Analyst / Technology Liaison- Barry runs our main fit studio. Chances are that if you book a bike fit at our Scottsdale location, you will be working with him. He has more than 20 years of motion analysis experience, and is available to work with you on both your cycling and your running form. Barry is also available to help you implement new Cyclologic technology at your business. What that means is that when Paraic and our partners come up with some amazing new product, Barry will walk you through how best to use it. And if something goes wrong? Give him a call. If he doesn't know the answer, he will find it for you.
