Ian Bagshaw—Owner and Head Mechanic
Ian Bagshaw, originally from Winston, OR, has a long history of bicycle service and advocacy in the Rogue Valley. He has worked at and managed several local shops, taught at the world renown United Bicycle Institute, helped plan and promote large-scale bicycle events, and has been a stalwart advocate and builder for MTB trails in the area.
As an avid road, mountain bike, and cyclocross rider—and occasional racer, Ian's appreciation for riders of all walks of life is contagious. It is not uncommon for him to spend as much time explaining the complex local trail system to a new rider as he spends tuning their bike.
Ian's combined experiences place him in a unique position to offer the highest quality service and customer experience in the Rogue Valley, and beyond. Many of our customers drive from locations as far as Roseburg or Redding just to have Ian tune their ride.
Derek Boland—Shop Manager and Director of Fermented Beverages
Derek comes to Flywheel via Santa Rosa, Humboldt County, and then Flagstaff, AZ. His love and thirst for beer is only matched by his sewing skills and arcane knowledge of backcountry, forest service roads. Many customers like to come and sit at the bar just to enjoy a cold pint and to pick Derek's brain about just about anything.
Eli Mcconnell-Perkins—Mechanic, Sales and Bike Fitter
Eli grew up in southern Oregon, between Takilma and Ashland, and is happy to once again call the Rogue Valley home. He has been working in the bicycle industry since 2005 wrenching, managing shops, and building frames, including four years at Co-Motion Cycles in Eugene where his role evolved from mitering to welding and brazing custom frames. Eli has fit training via Trek University and enjoys finding a comfortable and efficient position for every cyclist. To make an appointment please contact the shop.
