  1. Thanks for the interview. I met Neil over a decade ago when he was helping my friend Rob Panzera run his new venture, Cycling Camp San Diego. Neil and one of his Jittery Joe team mates were helping Rob, by leading rides and providing expert advice to to camp participants. Neil was at a transition point in his career, and not sure where he and his young family were going next. I’m glad that things are working out for him. Please send my regards and best wishes to him.

  2. Jom you have been way ahead of the Manuf on the 2bi they don’t make it easy. Hope they hear this interview.
