Cloud 9 is run by a highly dedicated and knowledgeable team of bike enthusiasts. We are in the industry because we love the ride as much as the bikes that carry us.
We are a team of bike fitters, mechanics, wheel builders, frame makers, groupset aficionados, all-road riders, cycling tech experts and rad bike appreciators.
Adam is our beloved big boss man. His positive attitude and non-hierarchical leadership has made Cloud 9 Cycles the friendly and professional shop that it is today.
Adam’s vision for the shop has been the same since our story began 10 years ago; have a fully-equipped, flawless workshop, have a mighty team of knowledgeable folks, and build high performing custom bikes that fit each individuals requirements and blow people’s minds!
Adam is the owner of this growing fine establishment. He is our incredibly supportive and generous guide, holder of the C9 vision, and is responsible for some of the happiest employees around.
It goes without saying that Cloud 9 Cycles would not be where it is today without this welcoming, and devoted leader who is all heart.
If you've been to our shop you might have encountered the friendly and helpful presence of Billy. We nabbed Billy from the wild three years ago, as an impressive young mechanic, and he quickly became an integral part of the C9 team.
Billy's resolve to do things well, and to get them right the first time (inherited from his Dad's engineer mind) backs up the ethos and spirit of Cloud 9 Cycles. Anything that Billy has graced with his hands in the shop gets the Cloud 9 stamp of approval and is sure to be running perfectly.
Last year Billy further enhanced his skills at @thebicycleacademy in Somerset, completing a comprehensive frame building course and training under some of the greats. He has since launched his own frame brand, Howler Frameworks.
Billy has been ripping it up living the BMX life from the tender age of sixteen, though these days you can find him happily upon a mountain bike in the lush forests and trails of Epping or Surrey.
Billy is the best mechanic we have worked with and has been responsible for some of the nicest bikes we have ever built.
Here's to you Billy!
Luca is one of Cloud 9’s best kept secrets and mechanic extraordinaire. His natural habitat is at the back of the shop, quietly working his magic. Luca will always have you and your bikes best interests at the front of his mind and will always help you to understand the benefits of different upgrades you can make to your bike. His attention to detail and methodical ways of working are a real pleasure to see in action.
Luca grew up in Italy living a very outdoor lifestyle and quickly fell in love with Mountain biking. He can be regularly found shredding in Finale where his Brother works as an Official Mountain Bike guide and is a Yeti Ambassador (check out Ride Over Yonder)!
We feel very lucky to have this guy around. He is on our team because of his brutal honesty (a hard thing to find!), his genuine love for bikes, and his unmatched precision both on and off the stand.
Thanks Luca, for all of your hard work and unwavering enthusiasm.
Our resident bike fitter, Tony Corke of Torke Cycling, does comprehensive fits in-house at our shop.

Tony is Level 4 IBFI qualified and has over 15 years experience bike fitting having worked in the USA & Europe for a number of different organisations - he is, simply, awesome!

His friendly and positive attitude combined with his professional and extensive experience in the global bike fitting industry makes for an in-depth and enjoyable fit that you can trust. Tony is definitely your first step to ensuring your custom ride is absolutely perfect for your needs, body, and hopes and dreams!
