Meet our team

When the ForTheRiders Team isn't working on bikes they're riding them! Explore our staff biographies and get to know them a little better.

Josh Bamford


Hi everyone! I'm Josh, the workshop manager at FTR. Most people know me as Shwaa and I’ve been on the scene here since 2008. I love working on all the new bits and pieces that come from the mountain bike world and especially love building unique custom bikes. Most people might remember my 24hr solo's on a single speed, but those days are now done and dusted. These days, you’ll likely find me aboard my Giant Reign slapping turns with the boys or floating kickers on my Santa Cruz Jackal.

See you on the trails!
