Dean Merrill became Gus’ Head Mechanic in the Fall of 2014. Dean is from Goffstown, NH, but now lives in Dover, NH. He is originally a mountain biker, which is an activity he began enjoying with his father as a kid. However, when he moved to the seacoast he discovered how very few mountains there are in the area, and became a road biker out of necessity. He hasn’t done much racing, but he has completed a few centuries. He has been personally fixing bikes for ten years.
His favorite ride is from Dover through Portsmouth, New Castle, and Hampton because of the picturesque views he enjoys down the seacoast. However, his favorite place to jump on his mountain bike is Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown, NH. Dean calls out his father as his cycling inspiration, as his father was a big component in his first years of mountain biking. Dean is always around the shop, happy to answer any mechanical questions you have.
