"Big Dave is the boss. Customer service is his day job and project manager of all things new."
Dave is a late comer to cycling but is the customer service godfather. Always happy to chat and undertake any new project that comes along. Next one is extending the shop again. Just an excuse to "supervise" and drink lots of tea we reckon.

Rides: mostly mountain bike or cyclocross bike.
Things I like
  • Friendly Customers
  • Being friendly to Customers
  • Helping Customers
  • Getting people on bikes


"Phil the manager, customer service is his day job, and single speeds his preference."
Phil, Loves his Genesis single speed as much as his flowing single track. Bike tech is his passion and problem solving is his forte. Phil is always striving to make Speeds Cycles bigger and better, so watch this space!


"Motor mechanic turned bike mechanic, Pete is the latest member of the Speeds team."
A man with a passion for VW vans, Pete is Sue and Dave's son and has joined the team at an exciting time. Mechanically minded and from a motoring background, Pete hopes to transfer his skills, expertise and experience into the family business.
Things I like
  • VW vans
  • Beards


"Kevin the builder, full bikes, restorations, wheels whatever your needs Kevin is you man."
Kevin, from Worcester, enjoys commuting to Speeds Cycles on his Fixie bike. Qualified to Cytech level 3 (wheels), he works primarily in the workshop, although sometimes can be found front-of-house advising customers on repairs and spares. Kevin contributes to Speeds Cycles' news updates via YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. For fun he rides sportives and Bromsgrove Olympic club time trials.


"Martin , The last member of the old Speeds Cycles and the oldest member of the new Speeds Cycles."
You could say the un-usual is Martins usual and is often the person found working on Tandems , Trikes , Disability Trikes and Sturmey Archer hub gears. His moto is “keep it simple and smile”.

Likes Steel frames, single speed off road and fixed on road but always has time for Sturmey Archer hubs. Although he uses a Garmin his rides always turn out to be mini adventures, oh not forgetting the café stops. He is a member of the Stour Bugs (the Stourbridge Bicycle User Group).

We can confidently say Martin has great knowledge of the bizarre and has achieved Cytech level 3.
Things I like
  • Weird and Bizarre bikes
  • Taking things apart
  • Cafe stops
  • Manwiches


"Owen the bike fitter, apprentice mechanic and our social media guru."
Owen, originally from Fairfield but now lives in Blackwell, has always been interested in bicycles. Many of his family are cyclists and he is an active member of the Saracen RC.

He mainly rides Sunday club runs but has done a small amount of track riding and TT's and loves to spend some time riding on the rollers. Owen commutes to work on his Cinelli track bikes and loves steel road bikes !
Things I like
  • Steel Road Bikes
  • Single Speeds
  • Fixing punctures Doh!


"Behind every great man (or team of men!) is a woman..."
Hannah joined the Speeds team in February 2014 as a part timer admin assistant, but she now works full time in the shop doing a variety of things.

Always smiling and with plenty to say Hannah loves to help new cyclists find the right bike. A member of the Saracen RC she always commutes into work on two wheels and is looking forward to getting her first taste of TT's in 2015.
Things I like
  • Speedplays... best cleated system ever!
  • Cycling... obviously.
  • Music - Listening to, singing along with, playing...
