Graham Cook takes over head bike mechanic at True Wheels Bike Shop

KILLINGTON — Graham has been working in bike shops since the age of 14.  A former downhill mountain bike racer, he spends most of his time freeriding locally at Killington.  Having ridden in the Killington area for the better part of the last 20 years, it was no surprise he said “yes” when offered the position of head bike mechanic at True Wheels Bike Shop at Basin Sports.

Prior to working in Killington, Graham Cook successfully ran multiple bike shops over the years giving him tremendous knowledge and experience within the bike industry.  One of his specialties is custom bike and wheel builds. Whether it’s a titanium road bike or a carbon fiber downhill bike, Cook is happy to help you put together your dream bike. But it’s not just downhill mountain biking that Graham enjoys, road biking, trail biking, dirt jumping and even pedaling around town are just some of the ways he fulfills his biking desires. If you have a bike that needs fixing, or maybe just a question regarding bikes in general, stop by the shop and chat with Graham Cook, he’s always happy to help.

Besides hiring new staff, True Wheels has also invested in a brand new rental fleet of Santa Cruz and Specialized bicycles. “We’ve got full size runs of Santa Cruz Bronson’s and 5010’s for rental,” said Ariel Kent of Basin Sports “For just $65-75 a day, riders can experience the full mountain bike experience on a bike that feels comfortable to them.  For the more aggressive riders out there, we’ve also acquired a fleet of Demo 8 and Enduro Evo’s to take you down the more technical terrain in Killington. These bikes are available for $85-95 a day.”

True Wheels aims to make sure their customers that are out riding are having just as much fun as they all are when they go out.
