We house a small staff at our shop. Remaining small is and was always our choice because it allows us to maintain our consistent, high standard and attention to detail for each project. When you call or email, you will speak to the same people that will be doing the work on your bike. At Hot Tubes, building a close relationship and giving each of you a top tier experience is our number one focus and drive.
Meet the folks that make it all happen
