Meet The Team
Name: Charles Baird
Role: Team Leader
Customer Service Experience: 8 years experience working in bicycle shops as a sales consultant and warranty manager. Love the challenge of finding the right solution for each customer.
Riding Experience: Began mountain biking 17 years ago on the family farm when I had no where to skateboard like my cool friends in town! I've ridden downhill (badly) until I saw the light and realised climbing was as much fun as descending. Now I ride everything I can whether it's up or down. My two favourite places to ride in Adelaide are Sturt Gorge and Fox Creek. Kilometres of flowing, rewarding single track goodness in both locations. I also enjoy riding road bikes and love linking together unpaved sections of road and fire trail. Just completed the Mawson Trail too. I can see more rides for me like that in the future.
What do you love about bikes?: Knowing that it's all down to personal effort to get to your destination. Going fast over rocks and roots. The sound of tyres on dirt or road. The feeling in your legs at the end of a big days riding.
Expertise: Hiding the pain of riding with my mates. They're all just so damn fast!
Current Bikes: Merida Scultura 8000-E, Norco Sight C9.1, Surly Ogre and All City Space Horse.
Favourite Ride: Any ride where it's good mates, good conditions riding a trail right on each others wheel.
Name: Darren Mallard
Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: My customer service career started in a skate store when I was roughly 13 years old. 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.
What do you love about bikes?: Doing stupid things with mate and always riding that fine line between speed and crashing.
Expertise: Suspension setup, Bike Fitting, Mountain bikes, and Race tuning.
Current Bikes: 2017 Norco Sight, 2016 Cannondale Super Six, Avanti Pista Pro Track bike, Reyolds 512 steel roadie, 1998 Specialized FSR.
Favourite Ride: MTB: Fox Long Shuttle. Roadie: Up Motacute Down Norton Summit.
Name: James Melky
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.
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
Expertise: Anything with two wheels that goes on the road. From your daily commuter bike to full carbon Ironman triathlon level bikes.
Current Bikes: Kona Penthouse, Merida Reacto 7000-e, Merida Big Nine XT Edition.
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!
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!
Expertise: Customer service, commuter bikes.
Current Bikes: Giant Liv Alight 1.
Favourite Ride: Anywhere with a view, the best so far being in Queenstown, NZ.
Name: Conrad Gittins
Customer Service Experience: I started in retail electronics and moved onto engineering related jobs with light aircraft and pattern making.
Riding Experience: I've ridden road bikes for a long time and raced at club level. In recent years I've taken up mountain bike riding and track riding (velodrome). I ride just about every day.
What do you love about bikes?: I love the freedom, versatility and practicality of bikes. They beat driving for most day to day things.
Expertise: Having the presence of mind to say 'oops' before crashing.
Current Bikes: Felt TK2 track bike, Felt Nine 20 series mtb, Mongoose mtb.
Favourite Ride: Hills riding, either road or trail such as Cleland conservation park.
