About us

 

History

 

Bike Bros. humble beginning was in Calgary in 2003. Humble meaning a single mechanic/owner operation that focused on bicycle parts and repairs. Graham had been a long time rider and bike mechanic and after 5 years in an Engineering Company, was dying to get back in bike service & retail: Back to what he'd done since the mid '80s - working on and selling bikes.

In 2006 the shop moved from just outside Calgary's downtown core to Cochrane, Alberta. The move gave access to some prestigious brands and allowed for easier access to mountain bike trails and "ride from home" road rides. Since 2006 the shop has expanded or moved 4 times as the business grew. 

Bike Bros is now in a beautiful location that was completely gutted to make the ultimate bike shop.

 

Awards

 

Over the years, the shop has won/received a few pretty cool accolades. Bike Bros is 6 time recipient of CanadianCyclist.com's Best Bike Shops in Canada Award, 1 time recipient PedalMag Best Canadian Bike Shop award, Highest MTBR.com rating in Canada and a pretty good Google and Facebook rating. This stuff matters to to the staff at Bike Bros. Quite basically, if we aren't trying to thrill our customers with the highest possible level of service, product knowledge and product quality... would we want to do this? probably not.

 

Staff 

 

Graham is founder of Bike Bros. He started in the bike biz as a teenager in 1985 and hasn't been able to quit this addiction. Riding bikes, wrenching on bikes and travelling to great riding spots are the things he loves... oh, and coffee! 

Graham is obsessed by speed, loves catching air and is always trying out new products to see what is hot and what is not.

Andrea is Mrs. Boss. When Graham and Andrea first met she wasn't into bicycles. In fact this, "owning an expensive bike thing," was totally foreign to her. Here we are, a couple decades later, she's hooked on bikes and is a big part of the vibe in Bike Bros. 

Being a person who has gone from non-cyclist to serious cyclist, Andrea brings great perspective to bike buying, learning, developing as a rider.

Keith is our head mechanic. He has been a part of the Bike Bros family for many years. He is really gifted when it comes to mechanics of all types and has a vast knowledge/experience with a number of brands in both the Mountain Bike and Road Bike categories. Keith doesn't like having his picture seen on social media so nothing to show you...

 

 

Tim manages the sales floor at Bike Bros. He has many years experience at a couple of the big Calgary shops and knows how to spin a wrench. Tim's background was in the dirt jumping world but over the last bunch of years he has been equally obsessed to ride mountain bikes or road bikes.

 

Damian is known for his attention to detail and being an awesome guy to deal with. He is as comfortable doing a complex repair job as he is guiding someone through picking out a new bike or suggesting components or accessories. Damian loves riding on both road and mountain bike trails.

 

Nate is our resident cyclocross and mountain bike racer. He is dedicated to his training and spending every possible moment on a bike that he can. Look for Nate in the shop part-time as he attends SAIT, or just look him up on Strava - he's pretty hard to miss on any Cochrane segments.

 

Carson is a licensed auto-mechanic but prefers to practice his wizardry on bicycles. Throughout his training and work time as a mechanic (bike or car), Carson has always had the highest level of quality.

On a bike, Carson is pretty gifted: especially if given the chance to be launched into the air.

 

Ryan is the most energetic person ever. He is fun to be around and puts his energy into helping customers.

Outside of work Ryan is always outdoors and adventuring; be it bike, kayak, hiking, on snow, surfing... We're crossing our fingers Ryan will be back for another season in 2019.
