Paceline Tandem: Mark Peterman

Our guest for this installment of The Paceline Tandem is Mark Peterman, the CEO and founder of AirFom, a new foam insert that replaces inner tubes (and air) in bicycle tires. Peterman is an industry veteran who has done it all: He was an elite level racer in Colorado where he raced against the best of the best in the 1980s. He was a race promoter, a bike shop manager, a regional sales rep. He joined GT during their monstrous growth under the guidance of Richard Long and would later go on to become GT’s general manager following Long’s tragic death. More recently, he was Cycling Sports Group’s (GT and Cannondale) top guy in Taiwan. Patrick spoke to him via Skype to get his take on the bike industry’s supply chain issues.

    I appreciated the insight into the supply chain, confirming my suspicion that Shimano is one of the main blockers at the moment. I recently embarked on a rebuild of a 5 year old Ti gravel bike, hoping that the supply chain was starting to move again. Finding grx parts is nearly impossible and very few outlets have the rear mechanical brifter in their catalog. Those that do have this in their catalog don’t have any forecasted delivery date. It’s fascinating to watch and I will be hoarding consumables like chains and brake pads for awhile whenever I can find some to buy to make sure I can keep riding.
