About Rokit Cyclery
Hello, I'm Cristian, the founder of Rokit Cyclery.
The concept of Rokit Cyclery was drawn out on a piece of paper back in 2015. Myself and my wife had only just closed our shop, Supernova Cycles, after landing my lifelong dream job, working for Kona Bicycles.
The dream didn’t last forever, I loved Kona, but I had found a base for the Rokit Cyclery concept. For me, after over 25years of fixing and selling bikes for a living, Rokit was back to basics and doing what I love the most, but via a business model that provided exactly what my customers love; a home collection and delivery service.
Rokit Cyclery is run during the week only, I don’t sell anything (I can & do supply parts for repairs and I am ‘online friendly’). Call, txt, or e-beam me anytime, and I’ll always do my best to get back to you.
Long in the tooth, some grey hair and rusty in places. That sums me up! I’ve been working on bikes since around 1988, & after all those years I’m still the same excited passionate kid at heart. And now I’m a ‘lifer’ ; After being made redundant from various bikeshops several times during the 90s recession, I kept the faith that I could make the Cycle industry my career.
Having spent the late 90s at the Infamous Cycleshop Newbury, I decided to take things more seriously, so I joined Halford’s new Bikehut programme and helped run a successful store for 4years.
There was one thing missing from my resume however, and that was a love for the Road. A change of scene and city led me to Reading, where I spent 5years learning the craft of bikefitting and all things road at various shops in the area. I did have longer term goals however, of being a sales Rep, and owning my own shop one day.
Hard work and perseverance paid off in various opportunities that I grabbed with both hands. Within a 7 year period, I had done two sales stints with Hotlines-uk, and Kona Europe, and owned, along with my Wife, Supernova cycles.
Now, after all the above, (and more!) I’m settled, working hard, but with no pressure of sales, accounts, or debt. Rokitcyclery has been a long term dream, and thanks to all my Customers its so far been a success.
