Founder, Chief Alchemist

Among other things, Eli is blessed with two highly complimentary gifts: creative resourcefulness and design ingenuity. After someone stole his messenger bag in late 2004, Eli (avid bike commuter and product engineer) produced a replacement bag made of stuff he found in his garage: bike inner tubes. That bag became an overnight sensation in Seattle, allowing him to quit his day job and become a full time bike-inner-tube bag designer…an moniker that not too many people can lay claim on.

Secret Skill:
Mysteriously good at untangling those pesky metal tavern puzzles.
