Our Staff truly defines Schlegel Bicycles.
We all share a passion for riding, however not all of us do it the same way. That is why we hand picked our employees from enthusiasts with a variety of cycling expertise.
We each have our own love of the sport; let our staff help you find yours.
Our management team
Steve Schlegel – ceo/General Manager Steve started in the bike business in 1980 when he got his first job at House of Wheels on NW Expressway so he could pay for the repair of his bicycle. He was only 12 years old. Little did Steve know this would turn into his life’s passion. Steve has ridden all types of bikes and knows more about them than most people. He has won multiple Oklahoma State Championship medals (gold, silver and bronze) in all disciplines of cycling (road, mountain, cyclocross, timetrial, triathlon and criterium racing) from 1986-present. He has also competed as a Cat 1-2 in many regional and national races. Steve was awarded the Jim Thorpe Cycling Man of the Year award in 2004. Steve has also been recognized in his business career. In 2005, he was nominated for OKC Biz Forty Under 40.
Steve is always looking to learn more on bicycle fitting and injury prevention. Recently Steve has attended the Serotta Cycling Institutes Fit Symposium as well as, Trek’s Fit Certification. Steve is a member of several organizations including the United States Cycling Federation, the National Off Road Bicycle Association, the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the United States Triathlon Association, the Bicycle League of Norman, the Oklahoma Bicycle Society, the Oklahoma Earthbike Fellowship (OEF) and the Oklahoma City Tri Club. Steve also serves as a board member for the Redbud Classic.
Steve continues to share his passion for cycling with the community, and he races and rides in many local events. He has also joined the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training and Team Young Life as a cycling coach to help cyclists achieve their fitness goals of completing a 100-mile bike ride. He enjoys being a part of the local cycling community and working with local city organizations to improve the future of cycling in Oklahoma City. firstname.lastname@example.org
Leslie Schlegel – cfo/general manager Leslie has been doing bookkeeping and accounting since 1995 and in 1998, Leslie started Schlegel Bookkeeping, Inc. which grew to have 3 employees and 29 clients (including Schlegel Bicycles). She specialized in small business. In 2000, Leslie and Steve were married and in 2003, Leslie closed her bookkeeping company and joined the team at the bike store full-time to handle the accounting, marketing and manage the office. Lucky for Steve he has a wife who is as smart as she is hot. Shortly after Leslie met Steve, she started riding a hybrid around Lake Hefner and not long after that, she took on mountain biking, until an accident at Lake Tahoe. Leslie then decided to try road cycling and fell in love with it (no trees). In 2007, only eight months after a total hip replacement, Leslie joined Team in Training and completed 56 miles at Lake Tahoe. Not long after that Lake Tahoe ride, Leslie had baby number three. She is back on her bike and looking forward to Lake Tahoe this year. email@example.com
STEVE SWANSON – SALES MANAGER “Little Steve” as we lovingly call him, has been with the company since March 2011. Steve is like a mullet, the perfect blend of business and party. He can always bring a smile to your face with his lighthearted attitude. Working at Schlegel Bicycles is a joy to Steve because of the easy going environment and his like-minded coworkers and customers. Steve enjoys road biking – the sights, sounds and smells of riding in the country and the challenge of exercise. A former chef and bartender, his hobbies include cooking, running and educating himself in the world of lagers and ales. When asked if he has any awards, Steve said, “voted coolest person to ride a bike… ever.” firstname.lastname@example.org
BEN WILLIAMS – ASSISTANT SALES MANAGER Ben has been with the company since February 2012. One of the traits that makes Ben such a great asset to the Schlegel Staff is that he loves being able to help customers find the perfect bike so they can experience the love of cycling like he does. Along with being our Assistant Sales Manager, Ben also rides for one of the local race teams sponsored by our shop. When not working or racing bikes Ben loves traveling with his wife Ginger and spending time with his family who also love and support his passion for cycling. email@example.com
MARTY BUCHANAN – SERVICE MANAGER Marty joined the team in April 2007. He has proven to be a great asset to the company and yes, his accent is real! Marty knows first hand what it’s like to move from one type of biking to another. In his native Wales he was an avid downhill mountain biker, but since his transplant to the U.S., he has learned he can get that same rush of adrenaline traveling 40 mph on his road bike. In 2010, Marty started competing in Time Trial events (TTs) and this is now his main focus in racing. He really enjoys working with the awesome Service Staff of qualified and experienced mechanics at Schlegel Bicycles and has admitted that he “…pretty much learns something new every day!” firstname.lastname@example.org
JACQUELYN MUSGROVE – MARKETING AND INVENTORY MANAGER Jacquelyn joined Schlegel Bicycles in February 2013 and has proven herself as a loyal and dedicated member of our staff. When not marketing Schlegel Bicycles and keeping the inventory in check, Jacquelyn coaches a local competitive youth climbing team. If not busy she loves having bicycle adventures with her husband Josh and her pug Ronnie. email@example.com
