About Us

Joy Machines was founded in 2011 in the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland by two neighborhood residents. We are a locally-owned, full service bike shop with bike sales and repairs. We are especially focused on helping people who want to use a bike as a form of transportation. Se habla español!

Alex Nosse

Big Boss Man

Alex is the big boss man at Joy Machines, having founded the shop in 2011 with childhood friend Renato Pereira-Castillo (who left for greener pastures in 2014). Alex is a proud lifelong resident of the Near West Side of Cleveland, and makes his home near the shop along with his wife and small canine children. He firmly believes in maintaining a car-free lifestyle and has done so for the last 18-plus years. If he's not at the shop, he's likely off somewhere biking or walking in nature.
