"I have been meaning to thank you for the clinic you did in Boise this spring. It has had a big impact on my riding especially in my ability to get down the mountain fast.  I never really felt comfortable with fast DH's, but now I do.  I think the biggest difference maker is your help in pointing out & fixing problems with how I was/wasn't leaning the bike in turns (as well as a lot of the other stuff we worked on such as elbows out). "

About

Steve Parrish knew he wasn't a regular kid. When he was seven years old he was fixing all the neighborhood kids bikes. His first bicycle makeover wasn't very pretty. He pounded conduit pipes to his forks, extending them so they looked like Harley Choppers. He was making BMX style bikes before you could buy them. Bicycles were Steve's passion and he spent all his time and whatever resources he had to make the perfect bike.


When Steve grew up his passion led him to work in a bike shop. But the desire to work outside, away from the stale atmosphere of a bike shop soon led him away. In 1994, with two tires in his garage he started his own business and became The Dirt Dart. He originally thought he would just be fixing bicycles at races. Little did he know the demand for house calls would be so high!


Now Steve brings not just his passion, but his expertise and professionalism to people all over the treasure valley.
