ReMade in the USA
Broken used to mean garbage, but we take a new approach to this. We take immense pride in our ability to fully and safely repair a bike and return it to service. Our aim is to continuously refine and develop new composite repair technologies to further the outdoor industry and leave the world better off than when we started.
Meet The Crew
We are engineers, innovators, artists, problem solvers, scientists and we are all cyclists.
Shawn is our owner/operator and lead engineer, truly the brains behind the operation. He started Ruckus Composites eight years ago with the desire to shake up the bike industry and to keep “broken” carbon fiber frames out of landfills. He’s helping revolutionize carbon fiber repair and has spread the good word of repair far and wide. His intimate working knowledge of composites and material sciences as well as an immense dedication the the application of craft within an extremely high-tech industry is nothing short of amazing. You can always find him tinkering on some kind of zany project when he’s not working...or at work.
Graham is our development manager and in charge of internal communication and community outreach. He is one of two individuals with whom you’ll be speaking or emailing in regards to repair requests. Graham’s seen it all as the second employee of Ruckus Composites and he’ll be there for you detailing every step of the repair process. You gotta problem? Yo, he’ll solve it. He’s also an incredibly talented painter with many tricks up his lab coat.
Nick is our master painter and restoration technician, and it is not an understatement to call him one of the best painters in the industry. Simply watching him paint-match colors is an art in itself. He also fervently produces decals with incredible accuracy, often times having to completely recreate them from scratch. He’s undoubtedly one of the most talented craftspeople in PDX.
Joel is our newest employee and our structural repair technician. He’s a perfect fit at Ruckus, having worked as a rope access technician performing ultrasound inspections to ensure the safety of bridges and dams. He’s been able to transfer those skills to carbon fiber repair, using ultrasound to perform damage inspections as well as completing most of the repairs that come through the door. He has a great attitude and really enjoys thinking inside the box.
Dan is our marketing mad scientist and director. He writes and photographs all internal and external content from press releases to social media. He’s in charge of documenting process and procedural changes as well as the day-to-day happenings around the shop. It is his main goal to tell the continuing mission of Ruckus Composites in an insightful, creative and engaging manner.
