What is the Rocky Mountain Vibe?
Well, it’s a slogan for the way we live our lives. It encompasses our core values of respect for others, a respect and love for our environment, hospitality, fun, and a relaxed way of life.
Respect for Others: Whether your in the store here, out on a ride, or in your car, it’s a simple thing to practice daily. Yield the trail, say “Hello” when riding by, give a rider 3 feet when passing in your car, just be nice! Treat others how you want to be treated.
Respect and Love for Our Environment: We all are blessed with living in one of the most beautiful places in the world, let’s keep it that way. Ride your bike to work or the store, pick up trash when you see it on the trail, buy locally made products when possible. Just remember to get out often, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy our surroundings.
Hospitality, Fun, and a Relaxed Way of Life: We strive everyday to make Alpha Bicycle Company a place where you want to spend part of your day. We’ll greet you when you walk in the door and ask how we can help. But, we aren’t going to stand over you and breathe down your neck. If you like, introduce yourself. We’ll offer up a cup of coffee or a beer (towards the end of the day, of course), invite you on a ride, show you some pics of our latest ride. We eat, sleep, and live bikes and we want to share our love of all things wheeled. Just come on by, hang out, talk, enjoy. That’s why we’re here.
Meet the Staff
Adam Rachubinski | Wearer of Many Hats
15 years experience
Adam was a late bloomer. He got hooked on bikes at the ripe old age of 16 but hasn’t been able to get enough ever since. He started working in a bike shop a year later and proceeded to spend his paychecks on XTR equipped mountain bikes and gas money to get to Tuesday night races in the Vail Valley. In his quest for expanded knowledge, Adam forewent traditional college and spent his time completing multiple bicycle frame building courses and becoming SICI bicycle fit certified. His journey has taken him to see many sides of the bike industry with a few stops along the way, but Alpha is home.
Lover of all things Euro, Mid-Pack Bike Racer & All Around Nice Guy
Chris has been a long time cyclist and bike mechanic. Since his first job in a bike shop at the age of 14 working in trade for parts to race BMX. He has never been able to break his addiction to bikes and the lifestyle that comes with it. He has spent many years building his reputation in many aspects of cycling from triathlon, road racing, and his true love of cyclocross. The 30 plus years in the bike industry and race community have created an interesting perspective and “cyclist’s” sense of humor. When you talk to Chris and don’t get his sense of humor, don’t worry. Either do we sometimes.
Finder of Fun, BMX Hessian, Rigid and Rugged, Go for Fast
Nic has been jumping bikes since the training wheels came off. BMX has been his main focus for the past 16 years. He has made appearances in magazines such as RideBMX, RideUK, BMX Plus, Orange Coast. You might have also seen his ridiculousness on FuelTV or on the Props BMX Videos. Working as a Professional Bike Mechanic for the past 13 years has broaden Nic’s horizons. If it’s got wheels, he loves riding it (and is pretty darn good at it, even thought he won’t tell you that). From Rigid 29ers to Tricycles to Touring Bikes. If it goes fast or is challenging, he’s into it. He is currently supplementing his BMX riding with a 64 mile daily bicycle commute as he prepares to complete the Great Divide Race. Do yourself a favor and put “Ride Bikes with Nic Handy” on your bucket list. You won’t regret it…
