A Little History

Mountain Trax started in 1995 as a small mail order bike company selling a huge range of products usually only seen in cycling magazines. The original owners started out running the business from home on a part-time basis, however it was such a success they soon ran out of space. So the following year they opened a shop in a retail unit at the local Wyevale Garden Centre, near Crowthorne. While selling everything from entry level to top-of-the-range bikes, the Mountain Trax ethos was always to make customers feel welcome and at ease, avoiding the cliquey feel of some high-end bike shops, which many people find intimidating. Fast forward to March 2005 when Chris White, who had been working at Mountain Trax for seven years, bought the business. He continued to develop it, adding a specialist workshop with two full time-mechanics providing an exceptional standard of repairs and custom builds. In June 2007 we moved to our current base in Barkham Grange, which offers 3,500 feet of showroom and workshop space as well as dedicated free parking.



Our Experts

Chris White – Owner and Director

Chris WhiteAfter leaving school, Chris worked in the automotive industry in sales and service. He started at Mountain Trax as Assistant Manager in 2001 and became the owner in 2005. He is very much hands-on instore, with an enviable product knowledge that few in the industry can match. He is also a qualified Fit Kit Systems bike fitter.

Chris’s riding passion is cross country (XC), especially racing. He’s well known for starting right at the back of the grid to enjoy the cut and thrust of passing other competitors. His 2017 race bike is being built featuring the new Scott Spark 900 frame and custom-built MTRAX carbon wheels. His playbike is a custom built Santa Cruz Hightower running 27.5 Plus carbon wheels and 3" tyres. 

 

Paul Howard – Sales Manager

Paul HowardBefore joining Mountain Trax in 2008, Paul worked in the hi-tech electronics industry for around 20 years, running customer support and technical publication groups for corporations like Texas Instruments. However he had already been a key member of our race team for five years when he came on board. If Chris is the ideas man, Paul is the detail man. Between them they have developed the business into what it is today. He is also a qualified Fit Kit Systems bike fitter.

Paul used to be a dab hand at long-distance riding, excelling in 6, 12 and 24 hour solo races. Today he’s more likely to be seen thrashing round his local trails or racing cross country in the Veterans class, proving that 29ers are far from slow. He has far too many bikes to mention, but his favourites are the Niner RIP9 for trail riding, a Niner RKT9 for XC racing, and a Sabbath Silk Road titanium road bike, all custom built, with Mountain Trax carbon wheel sets.

Ben Thomas – Website, Stock Manager and Pro Rider

Ben ThomasBen joined Mountain Trax as a weekend staff member in 2005, when the shop was based at the Wyevale Garden Centre. He took a few years out to study Property Management at university, but continued training to race competitively in the Expert and Elite XC classes. Since returning to work at the shop, Ben has been racing at pro-level, specialising in endurance and marathon races and riding for Great Britain at World Championships. His stellar career continues with highlights such as the 2015 and 2016 British Mountain Bike Marathon Champion, and winning both the Isle of Man End2End and Brighton Big Dog three years on the trot since 2014. 

If anyone is going to test bikes, parts and equipment to the extreme, Ben is the man for it. His wealth of product knowledge is impressive, and he’s especially well known for helping customers choose the best specialist clothing for their needs.
