Who is altangle?
“As a collegiate cyclist, half decent mechanic, and all-around bicycle enthusiast, Squires Smith began imagining and sketching a maintenance device that he and his teammates needed, but never found. These original designs sparked several years of tweaking, modeling, and modifying, and evolved slowly into the product seen today.”
“As is often the case, the Hangar is a product born of necessity, and fueled by passion and inspiration. While Squires began his professional career in industrial construction, he continued to develop and plan, and of course, always, to ride. Meanwhile, pursuing an alternate path as their early lives would have predicted, Scott Smith made his way through the worlds of investment banking and private equity.” – https://altanglecycling.com
“Following some long days, months and years of doing the financial grind, Squires got Scott to quit his job and join him on a bike, sharing the best thing he had to offer for a life well lived. It was there, from four tires on the road, that Altangle was launched. Capitalizing on their complementary skill sets, the Smith brothers formulated a mission to create an ‘alternative angle’ on biking and bike products.”
