Bike Mechanic

Chris took up mountain bike racing as a young teenager, as a result was encouraged to learn how to maintain his own bike. When his father showed him how to true a wheel with a simple little tool, rather than having to buy an entirely new wheel, his interest in bike mechanics was piqued. Since then, Chris has grown up racing mtb’s and moved to Whistler where he’s worked in many local bike shops, moving up from being the quiet young grom at Whistler Bike Co to head mechanic for Comor Sports.

As a self professed lover of suffering, he’s often seen toeing the line at the weekly xc Loonie race events throughout the summer, ripping it up with some of the valley’s fastest riders. His passion for riding and years of mechanic experience, combined with an educational and workplace background in the bike business give Chris a well rounded view of what it’s like and what it takes to be a professional bike mechanic. As an instructor here at WAS he looks forward to sharing that passion and knowledge with others.
