Jay has been around bikes most of his life. At 19, jay worked at a shop and raced cross country. In 1995, at the age of 25, Jay opened Mount Perk Bicycles in Perkasie PA. Mount Perk was a well-known shop in the mountain bike community, known for their trials and downhill and dual slalom teams (Schwartz and his merry band of miscreants).
Jay has competed in just about every style of racing, with the exception of road. Jay went to Nationals multiple years for Trails, Dual Slalom, Downhill, and 4-cross.
In 2007 Mount Perk closed its doors; Jay went onto different jobs, but always stayed active in the bike community. Jay started working at SVBikes in April of 2017, with years of bike mechanic knowledge & skills, we are proud to have Jay on our staff.
Just about every Sunday morning you will find Jay volunteering, building and grooming trails at Nox. Jay is has been involved with the Ride Nox council since its inception.
