Nick Manta

Nick Manta recently returned to Philly after getting a degree in Philosophy from Goucher College. He’s a proud resident of Kensington, and can be see riding around Philly on a “hospital foam green” Surly Cross-Check. He’s the 17th or 18th Trophy staffer to own one of these versatile machines; his is a single speed, tastefully outfitted with a Velo Orange front rack and cruiser bars scraped from staffer Mitch.

Nick’s favorite bike he doesn’t own? A Bakfiets cargo bike.

When not working the floor or fixing your flats at Trophy, Nick is a regular at the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, an artists’ co-working center in Fishtown. You can also find Nick carrying hundreds of pounds of dirty clothing on a bicycle with WashCycle.
