Nate Madigan

career: service manager
nate.m@bigringcycles.com

A mechanical guru, Nate was gifted his first set of screwdrivers in kindergarten after a botched repair job of the family television remote. He has applied these, along with few more tools and an engineering degree, to making bikes faster, better, and stronger.


Seth Wolins

career: owner, enthusiast, philanthropist
seth.w@bigringcycles.com

Seth learned how to fix more than a flat when he worked in bike shops as a kid in Ames, Iowa and as support staff for the Raleigh Levis Pro Racing Team. As a grown-up, he juggled a Fortune 500 career and way too much global travel with weekend road races. A survivor of countless mergers and acquisitions, he finally escaped and became owner of Big Ring Cycles in 2016.
