Steve Potts has been called one of the best bicycle frame builders of the past 35 years. In fact, Steve is the only one of the original mountain bike pioneering Repack group of the late 1970s who still builds his own framesets. His refinement of steel and titanium tubing is legendary. Steve himself is a product of Marin County, California, birthplace of the modern mountain bike and the epicenter for innovation for over 30 years. Today, Steve crafts his signature road, cyclocross and mountain frames from grade-select titanium in his meticulous shop in Petaluma, California.

Daniel de Visé is an author and journalist. A graduate of Wesleyan and Northwestern universities, he has worked at the The Washington Post, the Miami Herald and three other newspapers in a 23-year career. He shared a 2001 Pulitzer Prize and garnered more than two dozen other national and regional journalism awards. His investigative reporting twice (see here and here) led to the release of wrongly convicted men from life terms in prison. His first book, I Forgot To Remember, published in 2014 from Simon & Schuster; it began as a front-page article de Visé wrote for the Washington Post about his co-author, Su Meck. His second book, Andy & Don, also from Simon & Schuster, began as a journalistic exploration into the storied career of his late brother-in-law, Don Knotts. The Comeback, his third book, drew inspiration from a childhood immersed in Chicago’s bicycle-racing subculture. Daniel is married to Sophie Yarborough, a senior editor at The Washington Post. They and their children live in Maryland.
