John was one of the pioneers of the US recumbent industry in the late 1970s and became R&D and production manager at RANS for the next 20 years, where he also handled the ultralight / light aircraft activities. He then became one of the co-founders of Bacchetta.
In 2012 John left Bacchetta and opened Vite Bikes with his wife Jacquie. John and Jacquie combined their strengths and launched Schlitter Bikes with the debut of the Encore in July, 2014. The Schlitter Encore was awarded the coveted Bentrideronline “Bike of the Year” award after its first year of production.
