Jan-Phillip Schmitt

Ergon Brand Ambassador

Hello! Welcome to my blog where I will document my travels around the Ergon and cycling culture in America!

I’m Jan-Philipp Schmitt from Germany, but please call me Schmitti!

I work for Ergon , based in Koblenz, Germany and I am on a mission to discover the American Way of Bike. My goal is to travel to the most beautiful cycling regions in America and meet like minded bike enthusiasts. There are many differences in the bike culture between Europe and America, I will seek out the people who can show me what America has to offer. Traveling from April to October from one Ergon retailer to the next, I will meet other passionate individuals and share the stoke of pedaling 2 wheels. As a die-hard cyclist myself, I breathe, eat, and sleep mountain biking and bring to the table a lot of experience in tech and ergonomics.

When you see the Ergon  van in your town or on the highway, don’t hesitate to stop me and ask me anything about Ergon and your bike ergonomics needs .
