Partner & Certified Body Geometry Fit Expert
Jay feels lucky to love coming to work each day. “In 30 years, I’ve never once woken up and thought, ‘Crap! I have to go to work today.’ How many people can say that?”
Jay has worked for Collins’ parent company for 30 years and has been a partner for 20. Currently, Jay is one of only 150 certified Body Geometry Fit Experts in the world and the only one in our region. That means Jay knows better than most how to fit you to your bicycle.
He rides his road bike regularly, teaches Taekwondo and loves to cook and eat good food.
“Our products are service and accurate information. It just so happens that we sell bicycles and accessories, too.”
Jason grew up outside of Nashville but feels right at home in Eugene. “In Nashville, we were the only ones growing food in our front yard. Here, we fit right in!”
An avid hiker and backpacker, Jason got into mountain biking because it offered a similar appeal, “yet much faster.” He got into road biking as a means to commute, but then learned he liked to travel long distances.
Jason’s been fixing bicycles professionally for 17 years – everything from rusty winter commuters to high-end race bikes. For a while, he traveled with USA Triathlon Team and Raceday Transport as a mechanic for world triathlon events.
Brian began his career with cars – racing and repairs. After a 33-year career as co-owner of EuroAsian Automotive, he tried cycling – first mountain biking and then road biking. It didn’t take long before he was hooked. To fill his time and since he’s always been mechanically inclined, he asked if Collins could use a part-time mechanic. Now, he works during the busy season and spends winters enjoying his other passions.
Brian enjoys living in Pleasant Hill with his wife, as well as two dogs and a cat who are “nice enough to share their three acres with us.” Brian also spends as much time as possible in his wood shop, making fine furniture.
Chance found his inspiration for cycling in a video game. Then, he discovered a local skate park. Now, he’s an avid BMX freestyle specialist and mountain biker.
Having worked at the shop for five years, Chance feels he has grown not only as a mechanic, but as a human being. “The awesome people who work and shop here inspire me to be a better person and to find ways to better serve my community.”
With certifications from Specialized Bicycles and Shimano Components, Chance wants you to know, your bike will be in good hands with him.
As the newest member of the Collins team, Andy works part time while attending school. Previously from Seattle, Andy enjoys the positive atmosphere of the bike shop and the Eugene cycling community.
“Oregon is an amazing outdoor playground with endless miles of mountain bike trails and great skiing.”
When Andy is not going to school, working, riding or skiing, you might find him enjoying a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.
