Steve will discuss building titanium bikes. Q&A opportunities as time allows.
Steve Potts love of bicycles started at a very young age. Whether he was exploring the mountains of Mount Tamalpais or rebuilt old broken down bike in high school machine shop, the feeling of freedom that bicycles brought him would forever shape his future. Following a 1980 trip riding bikes on both islands of New Zealand, Steve returned home, he sold everything that he owned, bought a lathe and mill, and began building bikes from scratch. In 1982, Steve started Wilderness Trail Bikes with his friends Charlie Cunningham and Mark Slate. It was their love of bicycles that turned into a wonderful friendship and business of building bicycles and components. In 2000, to be closer to his family, Steve left WTB to open up shop in the beautiful small town of Etna, California where his passion for building the best bikes and components has only grown over the years.
