Steve Morganstern has been participating in cycling events since age thirteen. He grew up in Ohio where year round cycling is difficult, but he never lost his passion for it. Cycling is more than just a hobby, it has been his way of life. His wife, Shar and their sons are also into cycling, and often participate as a family at events or just enjoy neighborhood rides.
After college, he worked for two companies which are world renowned for customer service and satisfaction. He acquired a strong foundation and understanding of what it takes to meet the needs of his customers. Steve's experience in the automobile service industry gives him a unique understanding of the old saying, the customer is always right. Steve believes bikes and cars are very similar in how people become strongly attached to them. Both owners know what they expect a sales or service experience to be.
Steve was a longstanding customer of Bicycle Ranch Scottsdale and was always impressed by their professional, prompt and courteous sales and service. He approached owners Markus Zimmer and Andy Peshek about opening a Tucson location.
Bicycle Ranch Tucson provides a unique experience to cyclists of all ages and abilities. It is a place where cyclists of all the different varieties can congregate, ask questions, gain information, find products, and experience service that fits their needs and level of enjoyment.
There is nothing we like more than sharing the experience and love of cycling, be it a child’s first bike, a racers new dream or just something to hit the coffee shop on. We have everything you need to forever, Pedal On!
