Owner and mechanic Charlie Kocornik has been immersed in the bike world for over 40 years. He started with racing BMX in 1976 at age 12 (achieving a top 20 National ranking with several National race wins). He continued Downhill MTB racing in the late 90's (ranking top 5 Nationally) and has kept the passion for the ride ever since.
Even at 50+ years, I still get out 3-4 times a week, it keeps me some what sane. I'm a family guy, with an awesome wife, Monica, and 3 (!) kids, Skye, Bowie, Amara, and Fidel, our Aussie Cattle dog.
I can't do a bio for the shop without talking about music. Music has always battled for top passion in my life. I used to be in an Alt Rock band called SunShine Blind. Bikes and music have always been a way of life. A therapy for mind, body and soul.
Like most bike shops, Elevation has been a labor of love.Our love is all things dirt and off road (motos too!). We don't do road bikes (although we do repair them).We sell what we ride -- the best mountain, gravel, and Cx bikes known to man.
Stop by, have a beer, and geek out on the latest gear and bikes.
See you soon, Charlie/EBC
