Susan Lindell is a manager at Recycle-A-Bicycle in DUMBO and the newest contributor to the cycling blog Velojoy. She joins the already impressive team of Susi Wunsch, Kim Burgas, and Genevieve Walker. I shot some bike portraits of Susan for the Velojoy “About” page. From that page:
Susan (contributor) loves her job as manager of Recycle-A-Bicycle in Brooklyn, where she has been getting her hands dirty for seven years. She also volunteers as the instructor of Time’s Up! Women’s and Trans bicycle repair classes. Susan has been an avid city cyclist since someone gave her a too-big bicycle eight years ago — its frequent break-downs set Susan on the road to becoming a mechanic. Her current ride is a Surly Cross-Check; she also owns a classic Trek road bike and a newly built single-speed mountain bike for bouncing around on the potholed city streets.
And here’s a pretty great video featuring Susan:
