Name: Luke Atkinson
Role: Sales Consultant
Experience: I have been at 99 bikes since Mid-2016. Ensuring that customers enjoy their bike buying experience is what I am passionate about. Coming from a BMX background as a child, I got my first road bike in 2014 and my first trail bike in 2016. I love taking in the sun of Summer on my road bike and then getting down and dirty in the winter on the trails.
Expertise: Road, MTB and E-Bike.

Name: Mo Chen
Role: Sales Consultant
Experience: Worked in a bike shop for a bit over a year before joining 99. Right now 3 months in, this place is fantastic. Been riding for looooooooong enough. Tried out all kinds of bikes out there, stuck with a dual suspension xc bike and a road bike as I found them fascinating.
Expertise: Road bikes, dual suspension mountain bikes and xc hardtails.
What do you love about bikes?: I see bikes as beautifully made, human powered machines. Riding bikes is like nothing else.

Name: Patrick Shanahan
Role: Sales Consultant
Experience: I've worked at Hoyts Cinema Norwood for 5 years before starting at 99 bikes in March 2018. Started riding again in 2014 when I got my first new road bike. After that I fell in love with the sport and kept upgrading bikes until the road bike I have now. Now I want to start racing and see where that path leads.
Expertise: Road and Touring.
What do you love about bikes?: Exploring new places to go out and ride and experiencing the place for what it really is, unlike in a car where you just see the major sights on a bike you can feel the terrain, weather and environment of a place you are visiting or exploring.

Favourite Ride: The best ride I’ve ever been on was from Bright to the top of Mt Buffalo in the Victorian Alps. Stunning scenery and climbing, and the decent!
Name: Daniel Wade
Role: Sales Consultant & Mechanic
Experience: Competing in Triathlon in my teens began my love affair with Cycling. I then moved into Mountain Biking and Road Cycling. I have been in the Bicycle Industry for 20 years in both sales and in the workshop and have developed a wealth of knowledge and experience over this time. I have also competed in Downhill MTB, Short Course Cross Country MTB, Cross Country Marathon MTB, Cyclocross, and have a new found love affair with Gravel Grinding.

Favourite Ride: After finishing my first Otway Odyssey MTB Marathon in 2008, I have completed this event 11 times consecutively. This is still my favourite ride. The Rockleigh 105 (formerly Lofty 105) showcases some of the best Gravel Riding in the Eastern Lofty ranges. Definitely my favourite "road" ride
Name: Roger Adams
Experience: Worked as a bicycle mechanic with Trak Cycles then Standish Cycles for 13 years. I started riding mountain bikes in high school. When I purchased my first bike, I noted that all the fast guys rode clipped in so I bought them with my first new bike. I crashed twice before I left my driveway... Since then I have raced at some cross country and 24 hour MTB events, purchased a many bikes then bought upgrades that I didn't need (but wanted). Road, trail and everything in between: when I'm not wrenching, I'm riding!
Expertise: Cross Country mountain biking, gravel riding, trail side fixes and post ride amber hydration.
What do you love about bikes?: I love the ability of the bicycle to change your mindset as soon as you turn the pedals, because I believe that every time you ride it brings back the memory of the freedom you felt as a child when your parents bought your first bike.
Current Bikes:Norco Sight C9.2, GT Grade Carbon custom, Look 695 SR and a Salsa Ala Carte
Favourite Ride: The Australian Alpine Epic, 40+ K's of dirty goodness, Madonna del Ghisallo Italy - a climb that ends at the chapel to the Patron Saint of Cycling and any ride that finishes at a pub.
Name: Sam Little
Experience: Several years as a bike mechanic. I started out riding around exploring my local streets and trails in primary school, this quickly evolved into an obsession with BMX riding and endless tinkering to keep my bike ticking over against the odds. After a long break I bought a MTB on a whim a few years ago followed by a gravel bike and have been hooked ever since!
Expertise: Getting bikes/people back on the road, Cyclocross.
What do you love about bikes?: Endless bakery stops and getting lost rambling around the hills, taking a wrong turn and finding a new winding road or ribbon of rock strewn single-track.
Current Bikes: Curve Grovel v1, Kona Process 111, Koga Miyata Valley Runner, Mutiny BMX, Norco Revolver HT 9.1.
Favourite Ride: Either any ride that starts off with any one of the excellent Belair National Park climbs or the Adelaide Belgie ride.
