Dennis Alles

Originally from Michigan, Dennis moved to Knoxville in 1998. Dennis has been a professional musician since the age of thirteen. He plays the trumpet and has performed all over the world in many different styles and situations. He has performed with artists ranging from Aretha Franklin, Jerry Lewis, the Spinners, and has traveled with the Broadway shows Jesus Christ Superstar and West Side Story to name a few. 

Dennis rediscovered cycling in 1988 after a car wreck. Cycling started out as a way to rehab from his injuries and fueled a passion for mountain biking that still drives him today. Since 1993, Dennis has been working in bike shops and raced mountain bikes as a sponsored rider with Diamond Back from 90-96. He still has and rides his titanium mob from the race days.

Dennis is the resident suspension guru at CBC and an all-round expert who can help find anyone the right bike for their needs.
