Simon is our bike mechanic extraordinaire. He is an absolute magician on the tools and a master of his trade. He is a born and raised in Christchurch local, living the beach life in New Brighton. He is the heartbeat of the Scotty Browns workshop and started his career in the bike industry at age 15, dusting and installing doll seats on bikes. Almost 20 years later he is still at it, but installing slightly different parts now. Simon rides a Trek Remedy 9RSL mountain bike and commutes to work on a custom carbon fixie that he has pieced together. He is always keen for a ride on a road bike and usually enjoying whatever bike happens to fall into his hands. His hobbies include camping, cooking, and being in the outdoors, but cycling is definitely Simon’s major hobby. Things you would never know about Simon are his utter hatred for peas and corn! He went through a bouncy ball collecting phase in his life and enjoys trying to juggle objects. He is also fascinated by Yodeling! His favorite thing about working at Scotty Brown’s Bike Emporium is the lifestyle and the passion that exists here at the shop. The opportunities past, present and future that allow him to challenge his skills and further his knowledge in the industry. Best of all he enjoys Scotty’s Tuesday morning stories about his experiences from the past weekend. They are always a good laugh!
