Husam resides in Concord, and in his spare time takes in the local scenery on his bike and trains for the annual bicycle race up Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Husam and a partner founded Ata Cycle in 1996 as a neighborhood bike shop for Harvard students and bike couriers. Each year since then Ata Cycle has grown, expanded and diversified, developing into a nationally renowned mecca for serious road cyclists and road bike enthusiasts.
Born and raised in the Adana region of Turkey, Husam developed a deep love for road biking during his early years of racing and training in the steep and beautiful mountains of his native region. After relocating to the U.S., he earned degrees in finance and management science. The success and development of Ata Cycle has grown from the foundation of Husam’s professional training combined with his lifelong passion for cycling. Husam brings a scientific, mathematical precision to the conduct of his business that sets Ata Cycle apart from other bike shops. To learn more about Husam and his approach to bike fitting and frame selection and component customization, see what some of our customers are saying:
It is an amazing feeling to be pedaling a bike, have Husam make two small adjustments in the seat height and seat tube angle, and immediately be putting out 60 more watts…
The owner Husam is a pure professional who is dedicated to helping each customer attain his maximum enjoyment from the sport. His encylopedic knowledge of cycling and biomechanics is matched only by his commitment to customer service…
Husam spent the time to properly fit me and build out the new bike. I could not believe the difference – my 1st ride on the bike I was flying up the hills, the efficiency of my pedal stroke, and how comfortable on the bike I was even after many hours. Husam and his team at ATA have the experience, equipment and selection to have you leaving with the bike of your dreams!
