Marty Epstein

Yes, there really is a Marty.

Marty opened his doors in 1978 and has been cultivating cycling culture in New Jersey ever since.  Marty now has three locations and is the driving force behind an ever-increasing number of local cycling events including Gran Fondo NJ

Marty's iconic fro has gotten slightly less "big" over the years, but he is still affectionately known as "The Logo."

Marty isn't only the logo, he is always out there riding.  You'll often find him pedaling though the highlands on his Trek  Domane 6.9.

Jesse Epstein


Jesse is a fourth generation retailer in Morristown and grew up in the bike shop. He was 8 months old when Marty purchased Reliable Cycle in March of 1978. He is arguably the shop’s longest running employee besides Marty himself. As a kid Jesse would hang out at the shop, learning life’s lessons from the bike shop guys, to the dismay of his mom. He was known to take naps on broken down cardboard bike boxes as a young boy and officially started working at the shop in 1992 while he was in high school. He quickly took up mountain bike racing which became an immense passion for him and raced as much as he could.

Jesse is a certified BG master bike fitter through the program written for Specialized bicycles by Andy Pruitt from the Center for Sports Medicine in Boulder, Colorado. Jesse is one of less than 100 BG master bike fitters in the world and really enjoys fitting people on their new and used bikes. He finds it rewarding to watch people’s lives change through bike fitting and considers it a very powerful tool in helping riders to reach their potential in terms of comfort and efficiency.

 

History has a way of repeating itself and Jesse and his wife Johanna have a daughter named Jodie, a son named Jonah and the newest addition Julianna. Jesse hopes that one day his kids might follow in his footsteps and also work at Marty’s because it is a really fun and rewarding place to work.Bicycles have a way of bringing people and families together in a way that other activities just can’t. Jesse looks forward to sharing his love of cycling with his kids and the rest of the world.

Marc Engel

 

Marc started working at bike shops right out of high school in 1983 and hasn't looked back since. He has worked in many aspects of the cycling industry and joined us in 2006 to bring his many years of wrenching experience to our repair area and specializes in unique and unusual bikes. With a collection of antique bikes dating back to an 1895 Hartford Pnuematic there is not much Marc has not seen but always loves it when an older bike come in for repair or just answer questions the customer may have. 

Marcs current favorite ride is a Specialized S-Works Cyclocross bike and loves taking his son Noah on bike rides in a trailer and also commuting to work. He is also working on several projects including a Worksman Front Load Industrial cycle with an electric pedal assist motor on the rear wheel (gotta get ready for that $5.00 a gallon gas!). While currently retired from licensed road racing, back in the day Marc was a criterium racer and even placed second in a state championship road race. Here's hoping he gets that racing bug again!
