Employee Profile: Darrick

We'll be devoting some space in this blog to profiles of our employees. The staff of both Discount Tri Supply and Kyle's Bikes work hard to provide you with excellent customer service and we want you to be able to get to know them.

Kyle's Bikes is our retail store, serving central Iowa cyclists, triathletes, and runners with a large selection of products, a complete service center, professional bike fitting, and video running gait analysis in a home-like atmosphere.

Discount Tri Supply is our online store, headquartered just across the parking lot from Kyle's Bikes. With a dedicated product catalog of top triathlon components, apparel, nutrition, parts, and accessories, DiscountTriSupply.com is your one-stop shop for swimming, biking, and running gear. Many of our employees are triathletes who work part time shipping products, listing new items, testing new apparel, winning races… you know, whatever needs to be done.

We'd like to introduce you to Darrick.
