Our newest full-time addition to BCB is Joe Pie’s son Joey. At just 23 years old, Joey has actually been involved with BCB during his summer breaks for the past 10 years. Joey started riding bikes at the young age of 5 years old, motocross competing at local events. Having the same “mechanical” sense his father has, Joey “wrenching” experience began in high school auto shop, as well as working as a machinist, and as a Ford technician before joining BCB.
