We continue to celebrate our 20th birthday in 2015! Today we bring you an interview with a Dero employee: Stephanie Beebe. Steph is our fearless Sales Manager and has been slinging racks off and on for over ten years. In her reflections, Steph underscores the motivating principle of Dero’s philosophy: Everything we make is by people who bike, for people who bike.
How long have you been at Dero?
I started in June 2004, part-time until fall of 2008. Came back part-time summer/fall of 2009. Came back again May 2010 full-time.
What sets us apart from other bike rack manufacturers?
Most of us here at Dero ride bikes on a regular basis, so we understand the importance of good bike parking. We use the product and take a lot of pride in what we do. At the end of the day, we just want to make a great product that will encourage more and more people to get onto their bikes.
Do you have any funny stories from working at Dero?
Oh, man. I probably have a lot, almost too many to pick a good one.
When I first started, our office was the upstairs of a duplex. As a cheap college student, I would bring my laundry to work and use the laundry room while I was working.
My second summer at Dero, I spent some time doing local installations. It was pretty great stepping out of the big van and meeting some contractor onsite to do the install. Nothing like a 19-year-old girl holding power tools to confuse the heck out of people.
Favorite rack, and why you like it?
I love the Ultra Space Saver. It’s so clean, organized, and innovative. It’s also one of the easiest ones to park to, in my opinion. You don’t need to bend over to lock up your bike and find the right angle for the lock to fit. When I bike to Seward Co-op, I always choose the USS over the Hitches or other ground mounted racks.
Why do people love Dero racks?
Because they’re designed by people who bike, for people who bike.

Dero is proud to announce the addition of the Dero Bike Locker to its extensive product line of bike parking solutions. The Dero Bike Locker is bike security at its best and is ideal for long-term bike parking applications such as at transit hubs and college campuses.
Whether it’s protection from weather or thieves, the Dero Bike Locker is a solid choice for long-term bicycle parking.
