After a long history with Mont, using the gear and having many great adventures, the relationship recently changed. I started doing an occasional day in the Mont Shop in Fyshwick. I work there mainly to expand my horizons; Working for yourself in a home office can shrink your world a bit and I enjoy the chance to ride to a job, meet and talk to lots of people, as well as ogle all the gear.
The thing that I have continually been impressed with at Mont is the customer service and ethics of the company. When customers bring product back for repair after many years of use, it is great to know that the gear is well designed, tough and practical and that it’s backed up with friendly advice and a real willingness to help people get the most from their purchase.
My plan is to continue to work at the shop so feel free to come in and say hi to me or any of the other staff and really experience what I am talking about.

...on the morning that the reserves were to be opened, I was awake at 3am, on the road by 4am and walking away from the car in the foothills of Mount Wellington at 5am.
