Any serious rider knows the heart and soul of any great bike store is the shop. At Revolution we pride ourselves on our professional tune-ups and service all done in our open concept shop visible to all. Be it wheel building, custom suspension set ups or anything in between, we've got you covered. Pull up a perch and watch some very experienced hands do their thing. We challenge you to name a tool we don't have!
Rory has been spinning wrenches at Revolution since 2005, when we rescued him from the flatlands of Lethbridge AB. A certified bike mechanic on paper and a true professional in the flesh, Rory is famous for diagnosing the problem with a bike from across the room. He is into the scene no matter what that scene might be. Witness his quiver of bikes that include just about every type imaginable.
Originally from Quesnel, Nate came to us in 2009 fresh out of a 2 year stint in Australia where he worked in a couple different shops. Having lived and ridden in both Golden and Kamloops before Oz, we’re always amazed at the amount of visitors to Rossland who walk in and say ‘hey Nate!’ Always quick with a story and a laugh, Nate self describes himself as a guy whose into ‘anything gravity related!'
Jarrad made the good call and left Edmonton behind and has been taking advantage of all the Kootenay's have to offer for 5 years. He's our main man when it comes to serious road credentials as well as our chief wheelbuilder, but he's handy at anything we throw at him, including all the computer issues we have.
Bikes have been in Tyler's blood for a long time, having built himself his first set of BMX wheels in Grade 6 when mountain bikes weren’t even on the radar. Ty and Caro started Revolution in 2004 after returning home after 6 years in the bike biz in France. He hasn’t forgotten the most important part of any bike shop is the service department and is known to indulge his tool fetish any chance he can.
Originally from la Belle Province, Caro ended up in Rossland when she got tired of freezing her ass off in the Laurentians and came west for some Kootenay pow. She has the broadest job description at Revolution where she takes care of everything that doesn’t have two wheels.... which is a lot, we’d be in big trouble without her! When not in the shop she can be found dominating the women's BC Cup DH series.
Josh, originally from Australia has been with us for a couple years now. A big man who knows only the fear of breaking carbon rims, he represents Revolution well on the BC Enduro series. Always an enigma, he is an engineer but doesn't know how to drive a train and DJ's under the name Soulman at a party near you.
Keegan is the first true grom to come up through the Revolution ranks. Although he gets tired of hanging around the old farts, he's learned a lot from us over the last couple of years. Part of the Seven Summits gravity racing team, we try to give him the weekends he needs off to compete in the BC DH circuit, in return we've put him in charge of the rental bikes!
