Name: Rick Rouse
Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: Approximately 3 years as a casual sales consultant at the original 99 Bikes store in Milton QLD just after it first opened. I started back with 99 Bikes College Park at the start of July 2018 and am loving being back in the company.
Riding Experience: I've been riding bikes for as long as I can remember, with most of my childhood spent cruising around the local trails of Mt Cootha QLD with my mates. In 2003 I discovered triathlon which I heavily pursued for the next 7 years, and have dabbled in since, including 3 x top 10's at age group world championships. During this time I also competed in a few MTB endurance races and also the Flight Centre Epic. In 2010 I got into road racing, including competing in the QLD Teams Series in 2012. Since moving down to Adelaide in 2014 I've worked my way up in to A-grade again and compete in the local club races along with the Cycling SA Super Series with Team USG.
Expertise: Road, triathlon/TT, MTB XC.
What do you love about bikes?: They can give you exactly what you need at any given time; a hard workout, a way to see and experience some amazing countryside or urban landscapes, an escape to work through problems, a cheap and efficient way to work/uni, and a great community to be a part of.
Current Bikes: 2014 Scott Foil 20, 2008 Merida Warp TT.
Favourite Ride: Most roads through the Adelaide Hills are amazing, but the area between Basket Range, Mylor, and Mt Lofty is a personal favourite.

Since then I have worked in various roles ranging from bike stores to restaurants both in Australia and overseas. I started at 99 Bikes in March 2017 and am always keen for a chat about bikes.
Riding Experience: Started on a BMX when I was 8 then graduated to mountain bikes at around 12. Been a passionate 4 Cross, Downhill and Enduro racer ever since. Over the last three years I have also taken to bunny-hopping pot holes and nose manualing medium strips on a road bike.
Expertise: Suspension setup, Bike Fitting, Mountain bikes, and Race tuning.
What do you love about bikes?: Doing stupid things with mate and always riding that fine line between speed and crashing.

Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: I worked in real estate throughout 2016, and in a bakery for a while before I started my dream job at 99 Bikes.
Riding Experience: Growing up in Alice Springs I spent most of my time on a hard tail mountain bike on the endless trails around town. I fell in love with road cycling over a year ago now when I moved to the city, and I ride just about every day now.
Expertise: Anything with two wheels that goes on the road. From your daily commuter bike to full carbon Ironman triathlon level bikes.
What do you love about bikes?: I love the freedom a bike can give you. Every ride is an adventure, and how far you can go is only limited by how much time you've got. "If I can bicycle, I bicycle" - Sir. David Attenborough

Favourite Ride: A ride along the beach with a nice tailwind and good friends who always push you to new heights.
Name: Chloe Carter
Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: Spent the last 4 years working in a sports store whilst studying Sports Science and Psychology at university, before coming to 99 Bikes in early 2018.
Riding Experience: Growing up in the country, bikes were a very handy mode of transport and that has stuck, commuting wherever I can, whenever I can. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find the best way to get from A to B!
Expertise: Customer service, commuter bikes.
What do you love about bikes?: The ability to go places and explore further than on foot or in a car, it’s much quicker than walking and you see much more than you would by driving, it’s the best of both worlds!

Favourite Ride: Anywhere with a view, the best so far being in Queenstown, NZ.
Name: Nathan Taylor

Expertise: Mostly road bikes, but am learning more every day and will tackle every question.

Favourite Ride: I like doing a Willunga hill loop with lots of flats included.
Name: Daryl Exell
Customer Service Experience: I possess a mechanical trade background with over 10 years in customer service.
Riding Experience: Started riding mountain bikes 16 plus years ago, which turned into riding Downhill Mountain Biking (MTB) very badly. After a few injuries I started riding road bikes to recover, and became hooked on the fun and fitness that followed.
Expertise: Mountain, road, trail and road side repairs, helping fellow stranded riders and hops based nutritional sports drinks.
What do you love about bikes?: I've been privileged to watch my daughter fall in love with cycling, and she now loves riding her bike also. I love the big smile and joy she gets from riding really fast. I also love riding trails and roads with friends, as the camaraderie that always seems to come out at the trail head or over a few post ride beverages is awesome.
Current Bikes: Norco Threshold, Trek Remedy.
Favourite Ride: Any ride on awesome roads and trails with friends.
Name: Conrad Gittins
Customer Service Experience: I started in retail electronics and moved onto engineering related jobs with light aircraft and pattern making.
