I’ve always admired unique bicycle designs and the “crazy scientists” who piece them together. I still remember back to my early days in the sport and the likes of John Castellano, Horst Leitner, and Jim Busby and their (then) revolutionary suspension designs. To the mainstream cycling world, these guys were on the fringe – but arguably, each brought new ideas to the sport that would ultimately change it forever. In Ryan Carroll, chief designer at Astrix Sports
, I see many of those same traits admired in the other “crazies”. Unique, likes to think outside the box and he certainly has an obsession with building a better bike.
