John Grenier - owner
"I've been fascinated by bikes since I saved up money mowing lawns to buy a Yellow Schwinn Continental 'racing bike' when I was 13. By 15 the bike was a thing of the past. Nearly 20 years later I hauled it out to exercise. I was hooked from then on. I bought the shop 18 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did! Nothing gets me more excited than talking to new customers about getting a bike. Whether it's for a little kids bike, a first time bike riding adult, or a serious enthusiast who wants to take it to the next level, I just love to talk about bikes."
Jared Buckingham - Manager
Jared has been with Rainbow for 15 years now. He's been the manager of the shop for most of those years. He's is one of those rare guys that is comfortable with both the sales and mechanical ends of the business. If there is a problem with your bike, Jared is the guy that will figure out how to fix it. He is also great at matching you up with the right bike for your needs and budget.
Ben Grenier - Mechanic
Ben tried to not follow in his father's footsteps. He went to college in Boston, but while there worked at a bike shop in the summer, then moved to New York and again worked at a bike shop. Ben eventually moved back to Lewiston and suddenly saw the light! He started racing road, mountain, and cyclocross bikes along with commuting. He became a real student of the business.
Ben is the guy you want to talk to when starting to look for a bike. He has ridden them all and has a wealth of information he loves to share.
