Kenneth Oladapo | Owner | Lead Mechanic
My name is Kenneth Oladapo and I am an Atlanta GA native, born and raised. I got into the bicycle industry as a teenager from watching the X games on TV one summer. From that moment on I was hooked and bicycles started taking over my life. My first bike was a BMX Haro Dave Mirra model that my Mom gave me. I destroyed this bike in less than a year and I couldn't afford to keep buying parts for it, so I started volunteering at a local non profit bicycle shop called Decatur Yellow Bikes (now closed) at the age of 14. A year and a half later I was able to get a job at Bicycle South also in Decatur, GA (now closed) with a letter of recommendation from a very well known personal injury Lawyer that focuses on bicycle related injury cases.
Kris Dunbar was the service manager at the time I started to work there. I was there from 2003 to 2017. Within that time, I learned a lot and my bicycle mechanical skills grew under the tutelage of Kris. 'Clutch' was an idea that started in 2014 and grew bigger from then on focusing at that time on BMX bikes, doing BMX jams, selling parts and working on them. That's what Clutch started out as. With Kris Dunbar and his wife Michelle, A/C Clutch Bicycle Shop officially opened in 2018 as a full service bicycle shop servicing the Westside of Atlanta where there hasn't been a bicycle shop in that area for over 40 years.

"I had someone call me an artist the other day. At first I was dumbfounded, but really this is my art. Every bike is unique to its owner and I try to tell everyone to get very creative with their bikes. The same thing you can do with a car, we do it with bicycles. Custom builds, funky paint jobs, additives, upgrades and extras. The new bikes are really cool, but it's something about working on a bicycle that will never be made again. Whatever type of bike you have, bring it to me and I'll make it ride a little better than it did when you brought it into the shop. Ultimately you'll have a smile on your face."

"As a kid, I always loved riding my bike.....never would I have thought that I would be riding again as an adult. But when I met Kris and was asked to help set up the business 4 years ago, I soon learned that I had a real passion for this business, starting with an average bike, then moving onto a hybrid. From there I elevated to a road bike and different makes of road bikes. Since I came into this industry, I have gone through at least 7 different types of Bikes. While riding road bikes is my passion, I have recently been introduced to Mountain Biking of which is now running in second place to riding my road bike."
