Dr. Yan will leave Downtube in 2022

Posted by Dr. Yan Lyansky on Mar 24th 2021

I have ran the Downtube as a bicycle resource center since 1996. After receiving my PhD I restarted sales on the site. In 2003 I started selling our own branded folding bikes...the Downtube VI was our first model. 

The latest models are so awesome, I am proud & excited to see how far our bikes have evolved. At the same time I have taught math & run the Downtube for nearly 20 years. I don't see much to do moving forward, since the bikes are really good....and I have no interest in being a full-time salesperson. Therefore, I have decided 20 years is time, I will step away at the end of 2022. I hope to finish off a few loose ends to make everything perfect before I leave. 

Bikes have been great for myself & my family, but I have other interests. I plan to be an international chess player & math researcher. It's time to move forward....A huge thank you to everyone that made this special for myself & my family!!!!
