|Name: Dave Dalton
Position: Owner - Mechanic - Wearer of many hats
Dave started cycling seriously in 1999 when he and his wife did the California Aids ride from San Fran to LA. A ride he describes as “life altering”. They did the ride again in 2001, about the same time a co-worker introduced him to a few guys who to this day are part of the 6Fifteen Crew. From that point he was hooked. Sunday rides turned in to 6 days a week; 50 mile weekend rides turned into 8,500 miles a year; charity rides turned into CAT 3 racing, and tinkering in the garage turned into getting certified as a mechanic. This obsession with cycling led him to start 6Fifteen Cyclery with a vision of building a different kind of bike shop. A shop that is as much fun to hang out in as your best friend’s backyard, one where customer service means everything and one that gives back to the community that it serves. So stop by and say hi, he’ll be the one with the Diet Coke in his hand.
Name: Matias Alvarez
Matias was introduced to cycling late in life, but was hooked after one ride in the Berkeley hills. Having a background in Product Design, he can be rather particular about details and making sure the bike functions as good as it looks. He initially took on road cycling after years of competitive volleyball, but after being introduced to dirt, it's been 80 percent dirt and 20 percent road for him. It's been said that there is a bicycle encyclopedia uploaded in his brain, so if you have any questions regarding components, vintage bikes or modern electronics feel free to ask. Just look for the tall guy that hangs out in the back of the store.
Position: Shop Dog
Ruby is our shop dog. Her full AKA name is Paris Roubaix Legends Live Forever (if she was a male she was going to be named Merckx); further evidence of Dave’s obsession with cycling. Anyway she’s not very good with a wrench but she is super friendly and makes for good company. Feel free to rub her belly and give her a treat. At 70lbs and still growing she is always hungry.
