My Story


So far it's just me. Originally from Lancashire, England and moved to Whistler, BC in 2010.

I started wrenching (spannering!) bicycles in a family run shop back in 1999. Since then bikes have been my life, turning wrenches in all kinds of shops and out on the circuit with pro road teams.

Now here in Whistler, bicycles continue to fuel my passions at Chromag Bikes, in an awesome team of dedicated hardtail heroes!

And this is where the story of Pinner Machine Shop began, honing my trade as a home shop machinist. My absorption into the machining world has allowed the development of some of my bicycle based product ideas as well as enabled the growth of a little machine shop I call Pinner.
