Deem raced through 1981 and then he and Olympic mechanic Steve Aldridge formed a partnership in 1982, and opened Cycles Olympic in a Los Angeles suburb. In 1985 Deem went to work for Merrill Lynch but cycling pulled him back and in 1987 he became a sales rep for Lawee Univega, being promoted to sales manager in 1989.
