Susan Schneider: Co-Owner

You’ll be glad you did!

Sean Maiscott: Co-Owner

Sean joined The TC in 2011. Sean has an EXTREME love of mountain biking, but has over 30 years of experience in mountain, road and commuter disciplines. He started out in the cycling industry in 2001 at TriArt, a youth triathlon training program, in which he taught mechanics, coached cycling and maintained countless bicycles. He became service manager at The Touring Cyclist after and transitioned to co-ownership of the shop in 2019. Sean has been formally trained at Appalachian Bicycle Institute, has been FOX certified and continues training through Specialized Bicycle Components University and Shimano T.E.C.

Orney Walker: Bicycle Mechanic

Orney started at The TC in 2020. Orney had to learn the ropes during a very difficult year, but he’s developed into a star mechanic and great presence at the shop. Whether hitting the trail at Bootlegger’s Run at Creve Couer Park or carving out a local BMX run, Orney loves bikes and carries that love right into the service area. Though a fixture at the shop now, he wrenches weekends and summers only, as he is a dedicated 3rd year student at Pattonville High School.

Mari Adero: Bicycle Mechanic and Sales

Mari is the newest member of The TC team, starting in 2021. With a mechanics hand and an eye for detail, Mari is a great addition to TC service and sales. As a full time member with continuing cycling training through both Specialized Bicycle Components University and Shimano T.E.C., Mari is here to guide you through all of your cycling needs.
