Meet Oliver's Staff
Oliver's staff of cycling professionals has over 60 years of combined experience. Some of the staff prefer to ride off-road, some prefer staying on the road and we all love just a casual ride through the neighborhood with family and friends.
A native of Gainesville, Randy has had a passion for bicycles since he was a kid. After living in and riding his bike all over Japan he returned to the US and became a manager at Carrollwood Cyclery. Later he assumed ownership of Oliver's and the rest is, as they say, history.
2016 Madone 9.2
Bruce started cycling in 1989 when a friend gave him his first road bike and immediately entered him in the Coors Light Duathlon the very next weekend. After a very boring stint in the mortgage biz, he pursued bikes full time. Now as a bike industry veteran he has spent the last 20 years in manufacturing, wholesale distribution and of course retail. Bruce occasionally competes in triathlons, but is usually out on his road bike or in the woods on his MTB.

Jonathan's passion for bikes started at young age with his first BMX bike. As he grew he fueled his passion for bikes by learning as many flatland tricks as he could. When he joined Oliver's 18-months ago he immeadiately fell in love with mountain biking, and now road biking too. Good with his hands, you'll often find him with his hands on a bike or under the hood of a car - he loves to "fix" things.
