Meet The Team
Name: David Allsop
Role: Team Leader
Customer Service Experience: I started working in bike shops in a sales and mechanic role almost 20 years ago and a lot of bikes have come through my workshop since then. Making the transition from mechanic to the shop floor full time, I find my technical knowledge helps guide customers into choosing the right product for their specific needs.
Riding Experience: I grew up in the Scottish countryside and pretty early on began throwing myself down muddy hillsides and spending all my spare money on bikes. Working in a bike shop only fueled my addiction as the new shiny bits that arrived would always look so good on my bike…all in the name of better product knowledge of course! Racing in the Scottish DH series was more of a social thing for me rather than getting podium spots every weekend but still counts for some of the best weekends away with mates I can remember. As well as riding bikes, through a research placement at university I shaped the provision of ‘extreme’ trails in Scotland and influenced the Forestry Commission GB into working with ‘illegal’ trail builders instead of bulldozing them. The search for the legendary dry trail eventually brought me to Adelaide in 2007, here I found out that mountain biking does not necessarily end with 30 minutes thawing out your feet in front of a heater! Since coming to Australia I’ve taken full advantage of the perfect riding climate and access to great trails within 20 mins of the city. I now enjoy challenging myself uphill as well as down for the complete experience.
What do you love about bikes?: Getting out into the country with mates, challenging yourself on new trails and the banter that combines the two.
Expertise: XC, Trail and All Mountain. Getting riders back on the trail/tarmac after a mechanical.
Current Bikes: Custom Rocky Mountain Element Team RSL, Custom BMC Superstroke 01, Felt F5, Colony Emerge, Schwinn Cruiser Tandem, Unicycle (riden badly).
Favourite Ride: Anything with good single track. Fox Creek is awesome but I also love the more natural rooty and rocky trails around Belair/Blackwood/Sturt Gorge.
Name: Aidan Lampe
Role: Mechanic and Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: Fairly new to the retail industry I worked in a small bike shop in the Barossa valley for 4 months before starting with 99 Bikes in March 2017.
Riding Experience:I first got into riding bikes through doing Pedal Prix at school, beginning in year 8 I'm still racing 8 years later! I'm now in my 3rd year of racing with the community team Unhinged and having a wicked fun time! I discovered mountain biking in my first year of uni and purchased my first "real" bike which was my Giant 29er and before I knew it I was entering my first cross country race. Between training for pedal prix and mountain biking I soon joined the road bike scene and expanded my life on the pedals. In my travels I've completed events like the BUPA challenge and the Dirty Weekend.
What do you love about bikes?: I love almost everything about bikes, the freedom to go wherever you want and discover things you would normally miss/can't get to in a vehicle, the ability to push yourself to your limits, the healthy lifestyle that goes hand in hand with riding bikes (including of course post ride frothy beverages).
Expertise: Cross Country Mountain Bikes, 3 wheeled contraptions
Current Bikes: 2012 Giant XTC 29er 0, 2010 Giant TCR Advanced SL, Apollo Vitesse from the 90's (got it for $1!!) In the works to get a nice new Merida.
Favourite Ride: Slightly out of the ordinary my favourite ride is the 24hr pedal prix race held at Sturt Reserve in Murray Bridge every year, it's awesome to watch and even better to ride!
Name: Pippa Gower
Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: I have worked in retail for almost 5 years, continually training to provide the best service I can which is something quite important to me.
Riding Experience:A few years ago I got involved with the Adelaide Bike Kitchen and felt so inspired by the community there that I ended up giving my car away and I decided to ride wherever I could. This turned into a few adventures with friends, one in particular where we decided to it would be a great idea to ride to Melbourne. The day came and no one backed out so we went! None of us had trained because we didn’t want to know how hard it was going to be and figured that we’d get fit as we rode. I ended up having the best time.
What do you love about bikes?: So much. I love arriving at my destination feeling alive, I love the freedom of riding, I love that it’s faster than walking because that’s so boring, I love that I can fly through traffic not having to wait for backed up cars and I love the people who ride, the community is awesome and we want to change the world.
Expertise: Road and Hybrid
Current Bikes: Norco Threshold SL Force, Apollo Concorde and a Very Pink Bike.
Favourite Ride: Ecocaddy Night Ride!
