Matt is one of the magazine’s original editors, penning his first article in BRAIN’s second edition in 1992. With a penchant for obscure parts, frames and brands, Matt ended up as the technical editor. He also had more bikes and bike parts in his garage than all the other editors combined. Matt said he’s looking forward to his 30-year sabbatical at the company and hopes to spend some of that “free” time walking around Interbike and checking out the goods instead of writing copy for the Show Daily.
