Bailey Poland

Full-time Salesperson

Hailing from the mountainous state of New Hampshire, Bailey grew up with a deep love and reverence for nature. Having learned to ride at three years old, they saw biking as the vehicle for their exploration. Insatiably curious, Bailey's wonderlust brought them around North America and Europe for a time, before settling in Smiths Falls. Passionate about people's wellness, both physical and mental, Bailey went to school for Psychology and Theology. Now they are putting their decade of sales experience to good use by keeping Eastern Ontario active and healthy. When not in the shop you can find them hiking, knitting, or taking their cat out for a walk.

Nevin Warner

Part-time Bike Mechanic

Nevin is a self-proclaimed geek, if you can call it that, on road bikes, his discipline of choice. He probably spends too much time riding his bike when he isn’t fixing it. He races his bike as well, he likes going fast even though you wouldn’t be able to tell if you talked to him. He has been a pro cycling fan for years even though he is only 14. When in the shop after school, he is generally the quiet guy, but does get in some intense conversations on tech and racing. He is always open to a conversation on how racing works or current cycling news.

Brent Maguire - Inventory Manager & Buyer


Occasional Salesperson and bike mechanic

Brent has been with us since the beginning and he loves all things Bikes. He started working in bike shops at age 15. Whether it be in his hometown of Deep River, or in Ottawa, or in Toronto, this guy has devoted his life to his passion for bikes and riding. He especially loves endurance mountain biking and has twice raced his bike for 24 hours. In the shop, we often say, "What can't Brent do?" because when he's not riding or fixing bikes, you will find him singing in a choir, performing on stage, juggling, unicycling, balloon animal making.....but he swears that he is not a clown. Brent is currently living with his wife and son in beautiful Perth Ontario. 

Aaron Kyle

Where's Aaron? He's probably out riding somewhere on his road bike, and probably pushing out a 200Km ride. Solo or in a group, he's also probably killing in on the hills. Aaron has been riding and loving bikes are a long while now. As a manager at Kundstad back in the day, to helping Heritage Bikes for the last 5 years as a occasional Bike Mechanic, Aaron always brings his passion for riding and bikes everywhere he goes.
