Meet the RAB Team!
RAB's Director Nick rides a sublime Kona Sutra Ltd and a 650b Kona Unit X - both have steel frames which he loves! If he was granted a workshop superpower, it would be the ability to anodise bike parts to any colour just by touch, and clean out damaged tubeless tyres in one breath!
Gary is a founding volunteer at RAB restoring bikes to the their prime condition. He rides a Kona Blast and vintage '94 Kona Fire Mountain. Gary's interests are photography and motorcycling his Suzuki V-Strom. Workshop superhero powers? Extending arms to reach nuts and bolts that fall and roll under the workbenches!
John is a fully qualified mechanic and a long-time member of RAB. His key bikes are a carbon Kona Libre CR and a fetching peppermint green custom Higgins with flat city bars. His non-cycling hobbies are following QPR (a.k.a Super Hoops) Workshop superpowers? To have Inspector Gadget arms to reach the tool board and multi-tool hands!
Pete is an experienced mechanic with RAB and runs his Kona Libre AL and Kona Big Honza to do it all! Pete collects life reflecting tattoos and loves watching sci fi and fantasy genres in his spare time. Super powers for the workshop? Time travel - so he can always get in early and ready to build repair bikes
Pete's Bio here
Henry balances his day job in the RAF as a performing cellist, with being a volunteer at RAB. He runs a Kona Rove ST, Focus Cayo, Vintage Carlton and Giant TCR Mike Burrows. Outside of cycling he likes red wine, hiking and running. Super hero powers would be a Midas touch to convert all bike components to Dura Ace!
Mike mixes mechanic with a dash of marketing at RAB.He runs an El Kahuna MTB (EMTB) Kona Jake CX, Scott CR1 and retro Quest alloy Road bike. Hobbies include lake swimming and writing (again) He'd love magnetic hands to keep infinitely small bolts and bearings from slipping away indefinitely.
