Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: Almost a decade of customer service, starting out in Vancouver, BC Canada, and finishing off in Banff national park, AB Canada before coming across the pimento Australia.
Riding Experience: tarted off as any young rapscallion with riding BMX in skate parks and on street. Moving to Vancouver, it was my source to get from a to b, as driving in that city can be much like driving in Sydney!
Expertise: I usually find myself in a product knowledge role. Getting to know as much as I can about the products I sell to than make sure the customers get exactly what they need, for what they need to do! Riding wise again would be cross country trails.
What do you love about bikes?: The freedom it gives you to go explore places with relative ease. Being able to go through cross country trails, experience nature and really push yourself. Plus it’s a great way to stay in shape!
Current Bikes: Janis Dakota d29 race. This bike was epic!!! I was so very sad to have to sell it off before moving country, but I am very much looking forward to getting a new rig here and seeing all the great trails there are to offer!
Favourite Ride: Star Wars trail in Banff national park. This trail combined some fantastic Xcountry, as well as some more technical mini jumps and cruisy berms. Definitely recommended for more experienced riders!!

Riding Experience: I started racing BMX at 8yrs old and competed in my first world titles in Brisbane at 12yrs old. The after many years as a cycling commuter I picked up the BMX again and discovered I was still competitive. My greatest accomplishment was 6th at the World titles in Colombia in 2016.
Customer Service Experience: This is my first job in retail but I’ve always worked in customer service; early days in hospitality then as a Systems Support Analyst. I like to consider myself a Customer hero. Nothing is too much trouble.
Expertise: I have a personal desire to share the 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 worries in the world.

Name: Carlos Lopez
Role: Sales Consultant/Bicycle Mechanic.
Riding Experience: Other than as a fun tool for commuting, I came to cycling late in life. But after getting hooked, I have a hard time getting off the saddle.
Customer Service Experience: Cyber cafe -in those early days of the Internet, Sushi Chef, Library Assistant, Cafe waiter and barista, Bicycle Hiring, Bicycle mechanic, and Middle School Philosophy Teacher -if you count students as a special kind of tiny customers.
Expertise: Although, I started more serious cycling late in life, since childhood I've taken apart and put back together everything that would fall on my hands, including bicycles. With that aptness for dismantling and rebuilding positively channeled through bicycle mechanics, I'm confident if your iron horse is misbehaving I can tame him back into shape, and make you a happy rider.
What do you love about bikes?: The fact that riding a bicycle brings back a childlike joy that, otherwise, we neglect most of the time.
Current Bikes: Quite the motley crew: A Fuji Team RC, two restored Mongoose MTB saved from the council's day pick up, a vintage (197?) Bianchi, a Giant Toughroad, an Azzurri Pavia, and still my favorite, a Shogun Katana.
Favourite Ride: Cotter-Urriara loop, the Wallaroo -with or without wine tasting, and the Royal National Park in Sydney.

Riding Experience: I started riding bikes very young and progressed from 12 inch wheels to a BMX when that first became a thing in the early 1980s. From there I did a bit of track racing, then road and triathlon working up to 3 Ironman races. Living overseas I discovered mountain biking in Whistler! After that the world was my oyster riding and racing at some of the biggest events in the world - TranScotland, Cape Epic, TransAlp, TransRockies, La Marmotte, Mountain of Hell and Megavalanche 3 times! On a less competitive note I have done some touring by bicycle note-ably Marsellies to Nice and Paris to London. Back in Australia I went back to BMX placing at several national titles and racing at 2 world championships taking away World 7 at South Africa in 2010. I race downhill becoming national series champion for age twice. I also race Footbikes becoming national champion for age in the sprint distance. Bikepacked a descent on the Finke River west of Alice Springs on my Fat Bike which ended prematurely with equipment failure.
