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!
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.
