Meet The Team
Name: Simon Weir
Role: Team Leader
Experience: I am an endurance enthusiast of all kinds. My studies in Mathematics at the University of Melbourne forced me into swimming, riding and running as an act of sanity. To maintain said lifestyle, stress management became a core focus. With this more holistic view I have become a National representative in Age Group Triathlon within a year of focusing on Triathlon. Cycling has been a lifelong passion that will only foresee-ably deepen with time.
Expertise: Bikes, bikes, bikes!! And everything endurance!
What do you love about bikes?: The journey! You haven't been to a place until you have rode a bike there!
Current Bike: KTM Strada RC 1.0 and a Boardman Air 9.4 TT.
Favourite Ride: Mt Hotham, with good weather.
Name: Melanie Gibson
Role: Future Team Leader
Riding Experience: I started BMX racing when I was 8 and competed in my first World Championships in Brisbane in 1989 at 12. After many years off the bike I picked up BMX again and found I was still competitive. My greatest accomplishment is 2 nd in the World Championships; held in Baku Azerbaijan in June and 6 th in Colombia in 2016.
Customer Service Experience: This is my first retail job but I’ve always worked in customer service. Early days in hospitality then as a Systems Support Analyst in Media. I like to consider myself a Customer hero. Nothing is too much trouble, just try me!
Expertise: I have a personal desire to share my love of riding, especially to women and girls.
What do you love about bikes?: Riding for me is a spiritual experience. While on the bike I am completely in the moment and have no problems in the world.
Current Bikes: Cube Stereo 140 MTB, Meybo BMX 20” and 24”, Velodrome Fuji Track Pro and Specialized hardtail.
Favourite Ride: Pork Barrel>Double Dissolution at Mt Stromlo, Melba & Kambah BMX track, Dunc Grey Velodrome. All-time favourite event: BMX USA Grand Nationals Tulsa Oklahoma!
Name: Rob Nicki
Role: Future Team Leader
Experience: I started out at the Phillip 99 store and moved over the Mitchell at the beginning of 2019.
Expertise: BMX (Freestyle & Race) & MTB (all mountain).
What do you love about bikes?: There is so much to love about bikes! I love the many social and health benefits that bikes can offer. I love the feeling of freedom, the excitement of trying new trails and the sense of accomplishment when I overcome a challenge on the bike. I love all the great memories and the great people I've met through bikes. I also love the feeling of getting a new bike!
Current Bikes: Merida One Forty 700, Norco Indie, United Voyage.
Favourite Ride: Stromlo is always a great time, I also enjoy Majura and CBMX track. We have so many good trails in Canberra.
Name: Liam Denvir
Role: Sales Consultant
Experience: Almost 3 years in hospitality before finally jumping into the workplace I really wanted with the Alexandria store for a few months, then I moved back to Canberra and Mitchell was just hand-glove! I’ve pretty much always been a roadie in spite of Nick and Tom’s best attempts to get suspension under me. Over the last few years I’ve ridden with my college and then uni cycling clubs. Recently stepped into the Velodrome and I’ve road raced a bit as well, but when you’re on the road with mates it’s always a bit of a race isn’t it?
Expertise: Road Bikes and Bikefitting.
What do you love about bikes?: Depending on who you ask, cycling should be about fun, convenience or suffering. I love to think it’s all of these. All the most incredible things you can see in the world are improved if you’ve got two wheels under you, especially if what you’re seeing is the summit of a big climb (maybe that’s just me?).
Current Bikes: Merida Scultura Special Edition, Giant Contend SL 1 (I don’t know if this still counts as the actual model given how many parts I’ve replaced), Pedal Messenger Detroit.
Favourite Ride: Uriarra Rd-Cotter Rd loop that comes back to summit Mt Stromlo.
Name: Jason Yang
Role: Sales Consultant
Experience: I started off my working career with 3 years in retail, and started at 99 Bikes as a sales consultant in November 2018. Since then I have developed many skills on the job as well as having an awesome time interacting with fellow riders!
Expertise: Mountain bikes, enduro and trail!
What do you love about bikes?: I love riding because it provides an outlet from my studies at uni. I like going down the hill. Not so much going up the hill.
Current Bikes: 2019 Merida one sixty 800 and a Pedal Messenger!
Favourite Ride: You know those little dirt trails that have been created by people cutting corners on the path? They make my commutes so much better!
