S. R. was born in the back country woods of Atlanta. He spent the majority of his time in high school skipping class to backpack and hitchhike across the contiguous United States. It was during his hitchhiking days that he started his bike wheel collection, despite not learning how to ride a bike until the age of twenty three.
After his bike wheel collection grew in fame and popularity, S. R. sold the majority of it for money to backpack around the world. He currently resides in eastern Germany, but is never in one place for long. He began drawing to fund his wheel addiction, and currently carries wheels of all sizes along with him on his sojourns.
