About Todd:

 

"Todd Wells was born December 25, 1975 in Kingston, N.Y. He fell in love with the bicycle at an early age starting with BMX from the age of five through sixteen. After graduating high school he picked up his first mountain bike and has been on a tear ever since. He found his way out to Durango, CO where he attended Fort Lewis College and began a pursuit of his career in cycling. Wells won two Cross Country Mountain Bike Collegiate titles for Fort Lewis College and the inaugural Semi Pro NORBA National Series title in 1996 before taking a break from his studies to become a full time professional cyclist with the Specialized Mountain Dew team.

 

His initial professional career was short lived as he decided to hang up his wheels at the end of the 1998 season and finish his collegiate studies at the University of Arizona. In 2000 he graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Management Information Systems and immediately started working for I.B.M., a company he interned with during his time as a student. Wells quickly realized that being a bike racer was better then having a “real” job and started training once again with his sights set on returning to the professional ranks. Some good results landed him a contract with the Mongoose Hyundai team and he was back on the circuit full time by the end of 2001.

 

By 2008 he was back where he started with the Specialized team and his results seem to get better with age. He has won fourteen National Championship titles across four disciplines. In 2011 he took on some endurance races and racked up wins in both the Leadville 100 and La Ruta de Los Conquistadors.

 

2012 might have been his best season yet with his third trip to the Olympic Games where he placed a career best 10th. He also managed to win his second PROXCT series title, second Pan American Championship title and stood on the podium at the Windham World Cup.

 

When Todd isn’t racing all over the world you can find him in one of three places; hanging out with his wife Meg, son Cooper and dog Winston, grinding it out on the golf course or hitting the dirt jump trails around Durango or Tucson, AZ."

About Steve:

 

"My name is Steve Domahidy. I am the co-founder of Niner Bikes and was the head of R&D for that company until 2011. I hold five US Patents, including the CVA suspension patent for Niner’s suspension design (US Patent # 7,934,739) with several more pending. Either directly, or under my supervision as head of R&D, I designed every single Niner frame, culminating in the Rip 9 RDO as the final bike I worked on before departing the company. My designs with Niner have won two IF Design awards and two Gold IF Design Awards, the most prestigious award given by the IF Design award body, as well as a myriad of other ride awards from around the world.

 

In 2011, after leaving Niner, I began working on a revolutionary new road bike design with Factor Bikes, a new UK based brand from parent company bf1Systems, an engineering and design firm working in Formula 1 racing, aerospace, and other automotive markets. I designed their new production frame, the Vis Vires, from the ground up, incorporating some of the design elements from their original concept bike, the Factor001. It was the most challenging project I’ve ever worked on, and has been launched with praise from press around the world for it’s forward thinking design, total integration, incredible ride, and advanced onboard technology. The Vis Vires is already starting to rack up awards, winning a coveted Gold IF Design Award at the 2013 Eurobike show and a d&i Award for design at the 2014 Taipei Bike Show. I am extremely proud of the work I’ve done thus far with Factor Bikes.

 

While the Vis Vires was coming to fruition, my mountain bike roots started to creep back into my system, infecting it with a desire to play on the dirt again. So, slowly but diligently, Domahidy Designs was born. I never thought Domahidy would make a good brand name, but I started playing around with it in Illustrator and came up with a brand identity that I could get behind; one that looked great, and placed emphasis on design rather than the name itself. It is a name, after all, that I believe in.

 

So every Domahidy Designs frame will be signed off by me. That is my seal of approval and also my guarantee to you that you will love your bike. If you don’t? Call me or email me, and I’ll make sure you’re taken care of, personally.

I am, and will always be, a kid at heart. One who loves to ride bikes. This is a passion, and one that I have been incredibly lucky to be successful in. I have the best job in the world: to design bikes that I want to ride, and in the process gain joy beyond measure in being able to share that passion with others who love to ride the same bikes. It is at once fulfilling and humbling to know that people around the world are already having a blast on bikes I’ve created, and Domahidy Designs will continue on that success."
