Meet Sean: Your Hometown Service Writer

What are you most excited about related to your position at the shop? Do you have any specific goals?
Feeling like I’m learning a new language (the one of bikes), and it has renewed my interest in riding. My goal is to continue learning as much as I can and contribute to the community atmosphere that Hometown brings.

Tell us a bit about your background.
I grew up in Howell and played sports all through school and into university. Soccer has always been my favorite sport but I’ve always enjoyed them all. I attended Spring Arbor University in Michigan where I studied Criminal Justice and played soccer during my time there. I’ve always enjoyed the outdoors and traveling, with France and Germany being the two coolest places I’d have to say I’ve been lucky enough to go to. Before Hometown I was working in the sales field — some cell phone sales and for a home remodeling company. After looking for something new for a while and knowing about Hometown for some time now through my dad, the opportunity arose to work here and it seemed like something I wouldn’t want to miss out on.

What kind of cycling do you enjoy? Do you have a favorite trail in the area?
I would have to say that, as a rider, I am currently at a beginner level. I thoroughly loved riding my bike when I was younger, but have just gotten away from it over time. With a renewed interest from working at Hometown though, I’ve already been looking at bikes to get me back out there! Which means I’ll have to find a favorite trail, but I’m sure it will be fun to get out there and ride as many as I can.

What are some of your other interests/hobbies?
Getting outside with my dog, playing in soccer leagues when I still can, video games, board games, and music of most any kind, especially if it’s live music.

Favorite dessert?
Cookies and cream cheesecake.

Do you have a favorite quote/mantra?
Mantra — Rain is good luck.

FREE Winter Storage!
Want to free up space in your garage, shed, or basement? Looking for safe and secure heated storage for your bicycle(s) during the cold months?

Through February 28, we’re offering FREE STORAGE with the purchase of a Tune-Up. No tune-up? No problem. We still offer winter storage at $10/month.

We do highly encourage the tune-up over the winter so that your bike is ready to roll as soon as the nice weather hits. With shortages and delays, it also allows time for us to receive needed parts for your repairs during months you wouldn’t be using your bike. This will save you the trouble of coming in for service during peak season when our turnaround time is longer. Instead of being frustrated this spring, take advantage of this plan-ahead option and be the first one hitting the trails on March 1st!

From October 1 through February 28, we offer free storage with the purchase of a tune-up. Use any or all of that 5 months. We just ask that you pick up your bike by March 1 so we can prepare for our busy Spring 2022 cycling season.

Bike Waves are coming to Brighton!

Great news for our community: Brighton has been identified as an area where more connections are needed and will be part of a program testing out “bike waves” over the next couple of months.

You can read more about it HERE.

Go-Liv-Co, Livingston County’s Non-Motorized Advisory Committee, has been pivotal in this and many other advocacy efforts. They work to promote and encourage active mobility via the implementation of Complete Streets and Trails that allow people to safely walk, run, bike or wheel regardless of age or ability.

Women’s Personal Protection Class: Monday 9/20 at 7 PM

Taught by Keep and Bear, LLC, this female-only course covers multiple facets of protection including situational awareness, instinctual responses, and nonphysical applications to preclude an encounter where protection is required.

From there, physical force applications are instructed including striking, force multipliers (hand weapons), and using them to assist in strikes and escapes from common grabs and other grapples.

These applications are intended to result in escape from a controlling engagement so the defender can reassess the situation and act to prevent harm (usually by escaping, neutralizing with physical force, or creating the time and distance necessary to bring lethal force options to bear).

Course Details:

  • An Introduction Packet will be sent to you upon registration.
  • This course is 1.5 hours long.
  • This course is moderately physically demanding. You will not be asked to push harder than you are able.
  • This course includes mild stress induction.
  • Live blades and weapons are not permitted in the training area.
  • Trainees will be expected to sign a waiver to partake in class.
  • There will be a short break at the 1/2 point of class.

Trainee Considerations:

  • This course is for females only, age 12+.
  • Non-adult trainees must be accompanied by an adult.
  • PREREQUISITE: None.
