FIRST CLASS BIKE MECHANIC
Christopher "Jimmy" Acomb - Owner/Operator/Mechanic
Qualified in Automative Engineering, and owner/operator of Bikeology since 2007.
Originally from Scotland, Jimmy now is an Australian citizen. Jimmy has a huge range of experience in the bicycle industry and specializing in downhill, cross country, road and triathlon bicycles.
Jimmy is a qualified Automotive Technician (Scottish Higher National Certificate in Automotive Engineering), working in a wide range of workshops, from council run double decker bus company, car manufacturers (VW, Toyota, Lexus, Holden) through to being manager/technician in a one man garage. Jimmy spent a couple of years in the Snowy Mountain Thredbo area as the sole NRMA roadside assistance mechanic.
Jimmy has been workshop manager and technician for a mountain bike company where he was responsible for workshop activities, ranging from vehicle repairs to full Downhill, freeride, BMX, Hybrid and Cross Country mountain bike fleet (60 bikes).
He has been a mechanic for Gap Cycles, Cycleogical and Peloton cycles. Since then, several bike shops in Brisbane have contracted Jimmy to carry out specialist work for them, such as wheel building.
He was the sole bike mechanic for a fleet of tricycles for Australia Post.
Jimmy was mechanic for Downhill National Championships in 2006. He turned down the position as a race team mechanic for the Commencal Downhill MTB team due to his application for Australian citizenship. The position of race mechanic for the DH world Championship Yeti team was also offered to Jimmy, but the decision was made to be mechanic for the Smiling for Smiddy charity ride instead, as the events unfortunately fell on the same dates.
Jimmy is a qualified mountain bike instructor. He trained the Australian state bicycle police in off road skills.
IN THE COMMUNITY

Endorsed by LIVESTRONG - the Smiling for Smiddy challenge is a 1600km eight day ride from Brisbane to Townsville to raise funds for cancer research in memory of Adam Smiddy. In 2008 Jimmy donated time to the cause by stripping and rebuilding 25 bikes from Trek and Lomond, and in 2009, through to 2013 he was the road crew bike mechanic for 50 days riders for the entire eight days of the Smiddy Challenge, as well as the 3 day Midi-Smiddy Challenge.
Within the triathlon circuit, Jimmy has helped triathletes of all types, juniors and adults, from sprint distance age groupers to Ironman Kona world championship competitors.
