Meet the Montclair Bikery Staff

Dave Adornato - Owner

Dave Adornato - Shop OwnerDave Adornato road racingDave owns the shop and is passionate about cycling and racing. He gets a thrill from seeing people of all ages enjoy cycling in all its' different forms.

Dave's passion for cycling began as a teen seeing his father compete in a triathlon. Throughout his teens he raced in triathlons alongside his dad, Frank.

Upon graduating from college with a journalism degree, cycling took a back seat to pursuing a career as a photojournalist.

At 30, Dave took up the sport again. He began riding and racing with the Montclair Cyclists at the Montclair Bikery. Little did he know that 10 years later he would own the shop, fulfilling a lifelong dream.

Javier Mereles - Service Technician

Javier MerelesJavier MerelesJavier or Javi as he's known to his cycling friends lives and breathes bikes. Not only is he an accomplished mechanic known in the shop to fix some of the toughest problems, but he's a masterful bicycle racer having won over 20 races in the course of his racing career both on the road and the velodrome.

When he not at the shop repairing bikes, he's on the local roads training. You may have seen him. He's the guy with all the lights on his helmet.

A native of Uruguay, Javier will ride his bike great distances to indulge in culinary favorites from his homeland. Sixty miles is no problem to treat the shop employees to Pasta Flora, jam tart, which he purchases at his favorite bakery in Warton, NJ. He's been known to ride his 100 gear inch fixed gear bike out there too for some of his favorite BBQ.

Next time you see him on the road, say hello!

Anthony Costa

Retul Certified Fitter / Sales Associate

Anthony

Anthony's passion for cycling began after a former life in the music industry left him overweight and wanting to get healthy. His brother, a semi-pro road racer at the time, gave him a bike and as the old cliche goes, the rest is history!

Anthony

He now competes avidly in both road and cyclocross disciplines but he enjoys all facets of riding. He takes particular joy in seeing others of all ages get bitten by the cycling bug, just as he did.

Anthony also has developed a passion for bike fitting and is a Body Geometry Fit Specialist. 

He doesn't particularly like pina coladas, but doesn't really mind getting caught in the rain.

David Costa - Service Manager

David has been around bikes for much of his life. As a kid he’d always be challenging the other kids to a race, and he carried that into adulthood, eventually becoming an elite racing cyclist. Before working in a bike shop David trained as a diesel mechanic and worked on both diesel trucks and construction equipment, so you can be assured that the level of attention and detail required to work on million dollar machines is the same level of attention and detail he gives every bike he works on.
