  • Employee Profile: Dave Hammer

    Dave Hammer is Kyle's Bikes Waukee Store Team LeaderWith the Kyle's Bikes expansion into Waukee, it is time to introduce everyone to Dave Hammer.

    Dave has been unofficially working at Kyle's Bikes since the Ankeny store opened ten years ago. Kyle asked him—along with his wife and tandem stoker, Cindy—to be the leader of the Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night Ride. They said yes and have been leading the ride since then.

    Officially, he has been an employee since the Monday after the 2018 Kyle's Bikes Parking Lot Sale. That's when he began working day-to-day in the store and preparing for the opening of the Waukee location where he will be Waukee Store Team Leader.

  • Employee Profile: Jim Riley

    Jim Riley has been working part-time in our Ankeny Kyle's Bikes location, answering questions and selling bikes, for four years.

    As we began planning the opening of our second store in Waukee, Kyle needed an Assistant Team Leader. Because Kyle worked for Jim when they were both at UPS, he knew Jim's character and work ethic. And in the last few years he's seen that Jim likes to help riders both experienced and beginner alike.

    We want you to get to know Jim a little better. You can visit him on the weekends now in Ankeny, but when Waukee opens, you can see him nearly any day.

  • Employee Profile: Jesse

    Jesse Benshoof has worked at Kyle's Bikes since September 2017.Our mechanics got more room to work last year when they moved out of our retail space and into the building across the parking lot. (This was the same time when we moved our warehouse and on-line operations from that building to a larger location.) While they do enjoy the extra room, it may mean that you don't get a chance to meet them.

    To remedy that problem, these employee profiles on our blog are a chance for you to get to know them. First up is Jesse Benshoof!
