Chris Kegel - Owner and President 414-529-6600 x3 Over 38 years ago Chris started working at Wheel & Sprocket as a mechanic. He always knew he'd run a bicycle shop so it wasn't long before he became partner and then owner of Wheel & Sprocket. Now, having expanded to six stores and an internet counterpart serving southeastern Wisconsin, the Fox Valley and world wide web, Chris takes an active role in both the business of biking as well as its advocacy and enjoyment. He surrounds himself with talented people who share his committment both at work and within the community. He also makes it his misson to advocate and move forward a bicycle-friendly world. Chris works out of
the Hales Corners store and can frequently be found riding his recumbent throughout the city, or wrenching at one of the many charity rides that Wheel & Sprocket sponsors and provides ride support at. Stop by and say hi; he would love to hear from you.

Liza LeClaire - Chief Operating Officer 414-529-6600 x3 Liza has been with the company for close to twenty-five years. She's right at home on a bike, on a mic, or in front of a spreadsheet.
