• John

    John is our tame BMXican. Having spent years riding the UK’s prime street spots and travelling to Europe to explore the interactive architecture whilst working towards his recently gained degree, John has settled in Bath with us as a key member of the shopfloor and workshop teams. John has a passion for knowledge, and this traverses into his love of steel bicycles. Seriously he would give a Japanese Blacksmith a run for their money with his knowledge. John has embraced Cycle Touring and Mountain Biking as new parts of his obsession with the bicycle.

    He is currently riding a Standard BMX, Intense Tracer 2 and a Ridgeback Panorama.

    • Jensen
      Jensen Sales

      Jensen is our secret weapon. A quiet and considered approach to his customers and an appreciation for Cycling Garments, he will give you the best advice on what to choose.

      With a 50+ mile round commute in the summer, he doesn’t take it easy in the winter. Taking to the rollers most lunch times to keep those legs fresh for when the sun reappears. Road, Mountain Bike or Touring, he is always happiest in the saddle.

      He is currently riding Bikes and loving his Whippet.

    • Daniel
      Daniel Sales

      Daniel maybe one of the youngest member of the full time team but what he lacks in age, he more than makes up for in industry experience. Having worked previously for Future Publishing in their numerous bike titles, he joined us as a part time but was soon made full time.

      Passionate about design and detail, these qualities translate into his riding style and his attention to customer needs.

      He is currently riding a Genesis Day One and a Black Market Bikes Custom.

    • Ian
      Ian Branch Manager

      Ian started his career in the bike trade in 1997 and went on to join Johns Bikes in 2001 working  as Parts & Accessories Buyer until he relocated to Australia in 2012 where he found work with De Grandi Cycles Distribution. On his return to the UK, he returned to the fold as Branch Manager in 2014.

      Although passionate about all things bike, his true love is Road Cycling. A keen fan of Italian bikes and Campagnolo, he is your go to guy for all European Exotica.

      He is currently riding a Eddy Merckx AMX 1 and a De Rosa custom Titanium, both Campagnolo equipped.

    • Simon
      Simon Head Mechanic

      Before being in bike retailing I was a marine engineer – making parts for boats, so I went from boats to bikes.  At the bike shop I worked at in Bristol, people were always saying that Johns Bikes was the best shop, not just in Bath but the whole area.

      Bikes have always been a passion, not just for getting from A-B but because they can take you anywhere, and the whole family can join in.  I love the simplicity of the engineering; two wheels with cranks that drive a chain and sprockets on the back wheel that make it turn.

      He is currently riding a Kona lava Dome and a Rocky Mountain Vertex

    • Mark
      Mark Sales Manager & Social Media

      I’d been a Johns Bikes customer for 16 years. It was accessible and friendly and they stocked everything I needed.  If they didn’t they would source it for me.  I had such a positive experience of coming to the shop that it made me want to work here.

      As an avid Mountain Biker, Mark is constantly looking for new ways to get sideways on his bike on the local trails and further abroad, though this doesn’t diminish his love for all things two wheeled.

      He is currently riding a Genesis Tarn 27.5+ and a Genesis Croix De Fer.
