Who We Are
We are inventors, manufacturers, and cyclists. We unleash creativity through crafting components that help you discover new ways to turn the pedals. We take pride in constructing components from start to finish for flawless performance from track, to trail and tri (and beyond). Outside of the office, you’ll find us riding our bikes, finding freedom on two wheels.
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, Q-ring, 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 Q-rings, 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.
General Manager, Lori Barrett:
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 steward of Gretchen, the world's oldest office dog.
Inside Sales Lead, Joe Hanrahan
Joe is the voice of reason when we get wound up around the axle about stuff. That's an unofficial duty, but one where Joe excels, nonetheless. Outside of that, Joe works with sales reps & keeps our shop partners happy. When he's not problem solving in the SLC office, this former Downhill National Champion rips his Transition Patrol anywhere he can find fresh dirt & freedom.
Market Support Specialist, Martina Platte
Martina is our only native Utahn in the SLC office. She brings a wealth of experience, from working in retail sales in the bike industry, to writing content for bicycle brands for big retailers. She's heading up the charge to keep the ROTOR America crew talking right, and working on marketing projects to be sure ROTOR & MET get brought to the forefront of the North American market. When she leaves the office she likes to spend her time with her two trail dogs spinning on some home-town singletrack on her Pivot Mach 4.
Inside Sales Lead, Michael Zanetti
Michael's been enjoying the outdoors one way or another his whole life. Mostly, this has taken the form of ripping trails racing collegiate or pro XC, but he likes to mix it up and boulder or camp... basically, anything putting himself in the beauty of nature. When he realized "nature aficionado" wasn't a viable career path, Michael decided to join the team at ROTOR America, where he solves tricky customer & tech problems. Michael also has the distinction of being the proud owner of the best mustache in the ROTOR office.
West Coast Tech Rep, Joel Sehloff
Joel is the youngest member of the ROTOR America crew, but what he lacks in years, he makes up for in enthusiasm and common sense. Joel is living the #vanlife based out of SLC, and rips trails & road alike all around the western US. Joel is equally comfortable going on a 100 mile gravel ride on his Allied Alfa All Road or sending the Birkie on his nordic skis.
East Coast Tech Rep, CJ Brish
CJ joins us from the wilds of Missouri, where he raced collegiate MTB, road & CX for Lindenwood. After a few years working sales & service in various shops, CJ decided he was ready to try his hand working brand-side, and is helping our Eastern US shops stay up to speed on ROTOR product & training. He's a smart cookie, and always looks a little like the above!
