Over 10 years ago Ali left Academia to work in the Cycling industry and essentially become one of a handful of women in the scene.
While having a passion for womens cycling, Ali's aim is to encourage all new riders. Co-owner of Chainsmith, Ali heads sales, marketing, ride leading but particularly enjoys "testing bikes."
While she can be caught riding roadbikes, Ali gets her best kicks on the gravel. Recently purchased her own custom DeAnima Gravel Soul there are many goals, including the Claire Classic, which are coming in 2020.
Being inspired by fit people is a perk of the job according to Ali. Another role is being our resident blogger. You may have see her recent articles in the likes of Bicycling Australia.
We're especially proud to have David Piacenti, our Italian perfectionist, in the Chainsmith Family.
Dave is renowned within the cycling community for his insatiable fixation on quality. As the perfect Retail Buyer, Dave thrives on sourcing the very best, unique products from Italy to provide the edge to achieving your Cycling goals. Rest assured, every product at Chainsmith must align with Dave's philosophy, "If I don't use it myself, I don't put it in the shop".
David travels through Italy annually to meet with our Brand Partners. This includes not only manufacturers of the larger brands like Wilier, Pinarello, Ursus Wheels, Vittoria Shoes, Miche Components, but also smaller family run producers and artisans such as Alpitude Components, Repente Saddles, Q36-5 Equipement and NexttoSkin.
Alongside studying bike fit, David has developed partnerships with Italian Frame Builders and with his wealth of knowledge of materials, techniques and geometry, our clients are promised current products specifically targeting their riding aspirations and physiology.
If there's something to discuss about cycling technology, innovative product or design, Dave will know each detail. As a Campagnolo Specialist, he is a rarity within New South Wales and a sought after point for knowledge.
As an invaluable member of our Chainsmith Team, many clients will attest to Davids skillset and abilities to say that Chainsmith builds many of the best bikes ever designed.
