Name: Reece Tschirpig - AKA 'Schlurpers'
Role: Sales Consultant
Customer Service Experience: I came into 99 bikes in August 2011. Have been here two years now and loving working with bikes.
Riding Experience: Have been commuting to work nearly every day since I started. In my spare time I try to go out mountain biking.
What do you love about bikes?: The thing I most love about bikes is the fitness but then second of all being out bush and having a bash... I also enjoy a good crash occasionally :)
Expertise: I would have to say mountain bikes and commuters, as that is what I mostly ride.
Current Bikes: For my commuter I ride a Cube Acid and for my mountain biking I use a Norco Sight Killler B2.
Favourite Ride: Mountain biking would be Parklands & Gap Creek. For commuting the footpath that goes through Mooloolaba down to cotton tree is great.

Name: Jackson 'Mad Dog' Martin
Role: Mechanic
Customer Service Experience: Worked in retail for pretty much my whole working career so far. Have worked in a few bike shops over the last couple of years.
Riding Experience: Been riding bikes my whole life. I've ridden anything from BMX & road bikes right through to DH Mountain bikes. Have also done a bit of racing over the years.
What do you love about bikes?: I love the fact that you can just jump on a bike and go for a ride either for fun or to clear your head after a busy day. The fitness is just an added bonus for me.
Expertise: Would have to be mountain bikes or BMX. Although recently fixies have been floating my boat.
Current Bikes: Santa Cruz Heckler all mountain and a Subrosa fixed gear.
Favourite Ride: Favourite place to ride would have to be either Parklands or Beerburrum downhill track... or anywhere I can do skids on my fixie :)
