Meet The Team
Name: Dan Crabtree
Role: Team Leader
Experience: I've been working in various retail and hospitality management roles since I was 18 years old. In 2007 I moved and worked overseas for 5 years then returned to Radelaide and joined my families Wholesale Distribution business. I had always dreamed of owning a bike shop one day so I took on a casual role at a boutique mountain bike specialist shop in the Adelaide Hills. I rediscovered my passion for retail and started working for 99Bikes in March 2019.

What do you love about bikes?: Personally when you hit that perfect line and just rail every turn you are 100% in the moment. All of life's other distractions don't exist for those precious minutes, its just you and your bike and nature. I'm also super stoked to go riding with my kids, I've had the pleasure of watching them start on balance bikes and getting their skills up to now just starting going MTB riding together with my oldest. Now I get to see his face, eyes wide and massive smile after he rails a few turns himself. I love that I can share that with them!

Name: Rick Rouse
Role: Sales Consultant
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. 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.
