Dill Pickle Gear is owned and operated by me, Emily O'Brien. I design and make the bags, take the photos, ship the packages, answer the emails, and sweep the floor. I am originally from Washington, DC. I am an avid long distance cyclist and I originally began making bike bags for my own use because I wasn't satisfied with the options I could buy. My educational background is in music, and I am an active teacher and performer on recorder and historical flutes when I am not working at Dill Pickle or out on a ride.
My favorite bike, which I use for all my long rides, is a blue 1974 Raleigh Professional frame built up with modern components as a fixed gear with a gear of 42x16.
