So what's up with our name and how do you pronounce it?

CentriPedal is not a real word. It’s a combination of the words CentripeTal and Pedal.

cen·trip·e·tal [sen-trip-i-tl] is an adjective that means directed toward the center (opposed to centrifugal) as in operating by centripetal force.  Simply put, it’s the inward force exerted towards the middle of a rotating object and is part of reason why one can balance while riding a bicycle.

How do you pronounce “centripedal?”  Like Centripetal: [sen-TRIP-i-dl]

There you have it!

My wife and I opened CentriPEDAL Bikes on June 21st, 2012. We have been residents of the Tri-City area since 1994.  I taught at James Logan High School for 17 years before deciding to turn my passion of cycling into a career.


Alex is our Service Manager.  He probably owns every bicycle tool that exists.  Trained in Shimano, SRAM, and Campognolo, he loves to work on bikes and nurse them back to health.  He has worked in many parts of the industry and raced for Team Fremont.  He love's 80's rock.


Mo is our Asst. Sales Manager.  The guy with the hair is how Mo is most recognized. He rides all kinds of bikes.  However his 1961 Ford Econoline consumes much of his off hours.  Mo is excellent at setting you up on your ideal bike, help you trade in an old bike, or find the perfect accessory.
