MEET DEMETRI MACRIGEANIS
“I’m passionate about cycling and I love helping people. I want you to be comfortable on your bicycle, have fun when you ride, and achieve your desired level of cycling performance. I’ve been involved in all facets of the bicycle industry for over 30 years. Besides being an avid cyclist myself, I’ve owned five successful retail stores, including Veloce Bicycles on SE Hawthorne in Portland. I’ve sold thousands of bicycles and have done thousands of bicycle fittings. I’ve trained at four different fitting institutes and I am a Campagnolo-certified bicycle mechanic. I’ve also organized local and international bicycle events and manufactured a line of custom road and cyclocross bicycles. In short – I’m crazy about bicycles and everything associated with cycling.
Europa Velo is named after the SS Europa, the passenger ship that brought my grandparents from Greece to America.
My fitting studio is equipped with Dartfish, a computerized fitting technology that helps me work with you to customize your bicycle to your anatomy and riding style.
In my spare time I enjoy Pilates, Blazer basketball, and vacations with my lovely wife, Denise. We’ve traveled to India, Tibet, Greece, Costa Rica and Butan. Our basset hound Lola rules the house when we’re away.
Europa Velo is open during regular hours, by appointment, or when the bicycle wheel is hanging on the sign out front. See you soon.”
