Dave Harkless walked into Littleton Bike looking for a part time job in 1992 and never left. Over the years he learned the business and worked his way up to manager. In May of 2003 Barry Field, Dave’s good friend and boss, was killed in a motorcycle accident. Dave ran the shop for the rest of the season then purchased it in the spring of 2004 and changed the name to Littleton Bike & Fitness. Dave is an avid rider, usually preferring his mountain bike and still occasionally races. Currently he lives in Littleton with his wife Mel and their dog Eli.
Dave has extensive fitting experience and has attended numerous seminars over the years. Dave is a trained Specialized Body Geometry fit expert and would be happy to help you get dialed in on your bike.
Thomas joined the staff in 2005 bringing with him many years of experience as both a cyclist and a bike mechanic. He is our service manager and also has a side business in St Johnsbury. He is a USA cycling official and can be spotted at occasional races either with a number on his bike or a blue officials shirt on. Thomas is the guy to see when you want to talk about old obscure parts or movie trivia. Thomas has raced both road and mountain for years along with more than a few triathlons.
Darleen joined our family in 2006 as we were getting ready to move into our new building. Her daughter Hailey was is an avid rider and she wanted to ride also. Darlene is our woman and Mom on staff, she can answer and relate to all those issues the guys can’t figure out. Darlene can usually be found on the sales floor helping folks pick out a new bike, clothes or accessories. She is now an avid recreational road cyclist and is even starting to venture onto trails with a mountain bike.
Jen Dodge doesn’t actually work for us but the shop wouldn’t be the same without her help. Jen organizes the White Mountain Velo Road Rides, All our Ladies events and rides, and takes all the 4 legged boys out for jaunts.
