He is a critical [pain in the ass] mechanic (ask anyone in any shop he’s worked in), and his intolerance of dogma has led to a lifetime of experimentation to find out what really does work best on the bike. A former Planet Bike supercommuter, Geoff commutes by bike, year-round, every day, which is now just a short eight or so mile trip each way, and when he needs a day off? He spends it riding all day, often to Boston and back just for a cup of coffee. There is no question he has an opinion about everything, but if there’s a weakness to the gentle giant it is his willingness to help others and share information about anything related to bikes. You can find him hanging out on Google+ with the Bike Commuter Cabal gang or maybe on Twitter @Ge_Willi, at least when he’s not mixing up a new batch of chain lube or playing with his microscopes.
