Cody Sovis is the founder of kolo t.c., which began in 2011. The site has been picked up and sat down more times that an adorable puppy, but it’s always been there, in the background, as a passion. Cody writes stuff for the site but also races bicycles. He’s a firm believer in tubeless road wheels, the unparalleled utility of the cyclocross bike, loves frosted sugar cookies, and is a two-time fat bike category winner at the Iceman Cometh. He mostly likes riding gravel and going to bed early.
