My history with Brad Devaney goes back more than 30 years to Memphis, Tennessee, when we were both students at the University of Memphis and working as wrenches for the Peddler Bike Shop. Even then, Brad was impressive. His work was as thorough as it was efficient.
After I moved away, he went back home to Chattanooga and changed his major to engineering. As fate would have it, he went to work for Litespeed Titanium and ended up designing some of the more beloved titanium bikes ever produced.
Fast forward 25 or so years and Devaney is still playing with titanium. As an employee of American Bicycle Group, he designs bikes for both Litespeed and its sister brand Quintana Roo, which is known for its triathlon bikes.
