Jimmy likes to ride
His bicycle and drink beer. He considers his greatest achievement is introducing EAD into common vocabulary. However in the commercial world, Jimmy is considered a pretty alright bike mechanic. When you come into the shop you will see why everyone wants a piece of Jimmy.
He was given his first geared mountain bike when he was less than ten. By the time he was 13 he had saved for his first “real MTB” with suspension forks by cleaning second hand fridges and never looked back.
In 2008, he met Hope & Harry at Woodhill Mountain Bike Park whilst he and some other AKL legends were building the infamous X-Aisle huck trail. Around this time he had landed himself a job with one of NZ’s biggest distributors in the cycling industry, Worrall’s, putting his fingers in as may pies as he possibly could.
That’s where he came across Robert Eva. Jimmy talked Rob (Dad) into letting him set up the SRAM Technical University in Melbourne Australia. Four years, 350+ STUdents and enough days under a SRAM race support tent to fill a lifetime, Jimmy missed NZ enough to come back. So he buddied up with Hope & Harry and Lewis & Co was born.
