Meet Ashton "AJ" Johnson


After twenty nine years as a shop owner AJ closed the doors of the shop to focus on the two things he does and likes best, bicycle fitting and repair. He is excited to be joining the team at Michael's Bicycles in Newbury Park, CA where he and Michael will build a state of the art fit studio.

He has raced mountain, road and track and was an alternate on the US National team. The cycling life style and cycling community are a major part of AJ's life and he wants you to join the fun and experience the greatest sport on earth.

AJ has been a certified USCF coach, holds fitting certifications from Serotta, SICI, Retul, and F.I.S.T. and has performed thousands of professional fittings on all manner of riders from couch potatoes to pros.

His mechanical background was formed from an early age. Starting with motorcycles as a kid into racing them as a teenager into working his way through college as a motorcycle mechanic. He holds two Associate Degrees one in Machine Tool Technology and the other in Automotive Technology. After school he worked as a manufacturing engineer, machinist and tool and die maker for twelve years. Finally in 1983 his love of cycling over came common sense and he opened a bicycle shop. His shop was high end pro and he sold, designed, had built, assembled and fitted bespoke custom bicycles for years. Now you can tap into this experience and knowledge by visiting Michael's Bicycles for your service or fitting needs.
