Made in the PNW
From design to manufacturing, all of our products are made at our shop in Bellingham, WA. We strive to source domestic materials that are long lasting and durable. Keeping production "in house" means we pump out fresh designs regularly and turn-around custom products in just a couple weeks.
HOW IT BEGAN
After months of testing prototypes and printing capabilities, the first generation of Ground Keepers were born in December 2017. But the GK seed was planted in the spring of 2017 after setting out to make a small run of fenders for a project and realizing no one could make what we wanted! Minimums for custom fenders were 100, colors were limited, and fades… forget about it! So we set out to fill this massive gap in the market and bring rad fenders to all ya’ll!
Owner / Founder
Keely has worked as a graphic designer and marketing manager in the bike industry for several years and started GK in 2017. Tired of black and grey graphics and the "racer's only" mentality that accompanies the sport, Keely's main goal is to bring a little fun to scene and provide the tools for others to do the same.
Production & Shipping
After managing a bike shop in Juneau, Alaska for 10+ years, Briana decided it was time for a change of scenery so moved to Bellingham and joined the GK team in the summer of 2020. Briana does it all! From Production Lead and Shipping Manager, to Master Gnat Killer and Podcast Picker, she's an invaluable member of the GK team.
After many, many years in the bike industry, we are excited to have Matt on the Ground Keeper team tending the sales hedges. Besides being a part-time model for our photo shoots, Matt manages all of our awesome shop accounts.
