Welcome back to another edition of Seller of the Week: the blog series where we ask our favorite sellers five easy questions!

This week’s seller of the week is Eric from One Oak Bicycles in Paoli, Wisconsin. Eric recently listed several incredible bikes with us, including this iconic and absolutely mint 1993 Bridgestone RB-1!

How did you get into bikes?

Pretty early on byway of a cheap family hand-me-down that my dad and I tricked out (including a rad rrrRaw Power sound hand grip). Once the training wheels came off, that was my first true taste of independence. A couple BMX bikes followed but quickly transitioned to road bikes at the dawn of the Greg LeMond era, customizing each and every bike I've owned along the way to a nearly 28-year career (and counting) in the bike industry.

What bike do you ride the most?

A neo-retro vintage Mike Appel with Campy Record 11 and deep-section carbon sew-ups.

What is your favorite bike ride?

A 30-ish mile ride my brother-in-law and I do multiple times each year while on vacation in upper Door County, Wisconsin.

Campy or Shimano?

From the tattoo on my ankle to my visit to their Vicenza HQ last June, it's Campy or nothing for me.

Any big plans for the next year?

Hoping to host a unique high-end Velo Swap mid-to-late Summer for local/regional cycling aficionados, and a Spray. Bike paint party in early Autumn when temperatures are best for spraying outdoors.
