Eyal himself rides extensively in every genre of riding, implementing skills that are both self and formally taught. His goal now that he is dedicated to building bikes is to create "the ultimate tool to relax the rider's soul" MBA Magazine. In addition to building bikes, Eyal is also engaged with cycling communities in Israel, both on regular rides and organized events and races. He is highly tuned-in to this very large subculture, filled with a variety of different people that he finds fascinating in their specific language, aesthetic and dialogue.
