Riley Bartz

Service / Sales

Riley grew up riding bikes in the flat-lands of Minnesota but always knew deep down he wanted to ride bigger terrain. Following college he moved to Colorado and in 2013 started racing Big Mountain Enduro events. He finished 4th place in his first ever enduro race and knew he had to land a career in the bike industry. He started working at a bike shop in Frisco, Colorado, where he was able to network with a lot of great people; eventually finding a spot on the Rocky Mountain Bicycles Ambassador Team for the 2017 season. Riley recently moved to the Front Range with his girlfriend, Amanda, and quickly found his place at Golden Bike Shop. He now races aboard the Pivot Cycles Ambassador Team. His favorite Front Range trail is Chimney Gulch and his favorite post-ride beer is a pilsner. He's thankful for the amazing opportunity to race for Pivot and work at a shop that's keeping people stoked.

Riley currently rides and races the Pivot Firebird 29 with Reynolds carbon wheels, a bike designed for capturing enduro podiums. Find Riley when you need a speedy CushCore install or an action photo subject. Check out his Instagram here.
