Who We Are | We sell high end bike components | Rotor America

Who We Are

At ROTOR America, we share the core passion of our parent company, ROTOR Bike Components in Madrid: to make the best bicycle parts available globally. While we know that when it comes to profit, it's a lot cheaper to make stuff in Asia, our Spanish pride in manufacturing shines through with every crank, oval chain ring & power meter we bring to market. 

Here in our USA Headquarters, we bring the best of ROTOR Components to hand for those of us that call North America home, offering our coveted oval chainrings, power meters, and solutions to just about any bottom bracket dilemma you might encounter. Our office is equipped with a team of people who prioritize making bikes a part of our every day lives.  Learn a little about who we are, and why top-notch bike parts are important to us.

Managing Director, Lori Barrett:

Lori about to eat it on the snow.

 

Lori jokes that she's the decision engine for ROTOR America. Bike bilingual, she is comfortable stomping the pedals on her road bike, or ripping around the northern Utah trails. She has some bougie habits (see: kombucha & yoga,) but otherwise keeps it pretty low key. She is also the keeper of Boris the Anarchist, the border collie/heeler rescue pup, who livens things up, on occasion. 

Sales Operations Manager, Franklin Aguayo

Franklin Aguayo

Franklin has been hell on wheels for as long as he can remember, being a fan of bike, motorbikes & cars. Since Wheeled-Conveyance Enthusiast was not a viable job option, Franklin decided to join the team at ROTOR America, where he solves tricky customer & tech problems. Our chief spreadsheet guru, Franklin enjoys crunching numbers,  brewing beer & a plant-based diet. 
  Sales Manager, Preston Hu

Preston joined the Rotor America team to augment both the data-crunching capacity & professional manner in the RA office. Growing up all around the mountain west, Preston realized in college that his true passion was lodged somewhere between working with bikes & his English wife, Sally. 

Preston loves getting his hands dirty in analytics, as well as the mechanic stand, so he's leading the charge with ROTOR bike shops & OE customers. 

Marketing Guy, John McKone

John McKone brings legendary race & industry experience to the ROTOR America team. A Park City local, John is the resident office fast guy. When he's not scheming up ways to put ROTOR front & center, he's dancing on the pedals up one of northern Utah's mountain passes, suffering in the name of speed. 

John got to fulfill a lifelong dream this year & head to the Belgian cobbles for Holy Week, where he pounded out many a kilometer & balanced the excesses on the bike with proper amounts of Flemish beer.

Adrian Palomeque - Technical Service

Adrian Palomeque technical trainer

Adrian comes from a storied line of bicycle mechanics, hailing back from the 17th century. Having invented the first Velocipede, Adrian's forebears decided to indoctrinate him into the world of high-end mechanics. Comfortable working on everything from road & TT bikes to huck-your-meat MTBs, Adrian brings an air of professionalism & a superb mustache to the ROTOR office. 

André Abreu - Visual Designer

André is our inside scoop into the Iberian mindset, having been born and raised in Portugal. He now lives in Boise, ID with his family but you can see him in-office on one of his monthly visits! André is a very experienced graphic designer who now splits his time between making awesome graphics and pursuing a career in professional criterium racing so look out for his flying Aldhu cranks in a criterium near you!

 

Boris the Anarchist - Head of HR

Boris is a valuable part of the ROTOR America team. His tasks vary from placing obstacles in primary office thoroughfares to ongoing attempts to distract teammates with rousing (and endless, if he had his way,) games of fetch. When not generally causing mayhem, Boris is fond of napping in his bed and rolling in patches of grass in front of the office.
