THE STORY

    The Lost Co was started back in 2016 as Mister Lost's Mobile Bike Shop with a retired Uhaul truck. The mobile shop was parked at local breweries and trailheads, and helped customers right at the bottom of Bellingham's Galbraith Mountain trails.

    In 2017, we turned our attention towards e-commerce to be able to help even more people with our expertise. Later that year we ran out of space in the mobile shop, opened up a brick and mortar store, retired the mobile shop and renamed the business to Mister Lost Bike Shop.

    Later in 2018 we started to realize just how awesome our online business had become, and wanted to come across as a bigger operation than a small local bike shop. We hired more riders which helped us create even more online media and help even more people than before. The business was renamed as The Lost Co and we cranked the volume up on our videos and online business.

    Fast forward to today, The Lost Co has moved into a huge new location and is known around the world for our YouTube presence and insanely good customer service. On a daily basis we help customers around the world source the correct parts for their bike and riding style instead of just selling stuff to make a quick buck. Our inventory has expanded quite a bit including high end suspension and components. We carefully choose which brands we represent and sell parts and accessories only from brands we know make quality products and offer excellent support.

     We run on a small and efficient team of dedicated riders to help you with the best possible knowledge and customer service. This way, you've always got a familiar face either in-store or through our email support. Meet the crew below!

MEET THE CREW!

Mike - Owner / Head Idiot

Mike has been riding bikes since he started walking, and grew up riding off curbs in the Chicago suburbs. He's been wrenching on bikes since he was first hired as a mechanic in 2006 and hasn't stopped since. In 2014, Mike made the move from the Midwest to Bellingham, WA. After falling head over heels for the PNW, he realized Bellingham was the perfect place to plant his roots and opened The Lost Co in 2016. Mike is committed to building the best bike shop on Earth and is beyond grateful for every single customer who supports us.

Russ - Master Wrench'r

Rumor has it, Russ was born with a full tattoo sleeve and a pair of Knipex pliers in one hand. Not only does Russ have the best mechanic skills on both sides of the Mississippi, but he's got the most appreciable giggle on Earth. Originally from WA, he spent many years in Montana making sure the regulars of Big Sky kept rollin' in the summer while killin' pow laps in the winter. If it has two wheels, with or without an engine, Russ can either ride it like a pro or fix it when it's broken.

Alex Royal - Mechanical Genius

Alex is a mechanic, and a damn good one at that. Previously a service manager at a high volume service shop down in Seattle, Alex brings a great attitude and meticulous attention to detail, making sure every customer is dialed. When Alex isn't wrenchin' away or scarfin' down a vegan burrito, you'll find them out ripping some of Bellingham's best jump lines!

Steve - Shelf Filling Manager

Whether it's riding some of the rowdiest trails in town or shipping out a box packed to the brim with Fork Boost, Steve is totally dialed. As the head of our scary fast shipping department, Steve does his best to make sure every customer gets their gear on-time, in-tact, and ready to rip! Coming from a background in road racing, Steve is all about efficiency and it really show through in his work!

Adam - Customer Service / Head Know-Most-Of-It-All

Pick up the phone and give us a ring! Adam will likely be on the other end. An Appalachian boy at heart, Adam is genuinely helpful and posesses an impressively strong knowledge of the mountain bike industry. He loves Bellingham's steep and loamy trails and is The Lost Co's two-time Monkey Bike World Champion.

Harrison - Assistant Know-Most-Of-It-All / Beer Slinger

Harrison is currently our only part-timer at The Lost Co. Coming from America's Dairyland, Wisconsin, Harrison helps Adam answer phones and respond to emails. He loves the smell of coffee, watching sunsets, and long rides in the woods (a true lady's man). When he isn't here at the shop, he's either working at Kulshan Brewing slinging beers or exploring new places around the PNW.

Alex - Video / Wizard

Alex primarily lives and works in the snow world but is no stranger to bikes and dirt. With years and years behind the lens, he's got an eye for detail and can stitch together a smash hit edit faster than you can say "smash hit edit". Give this dude some trail mix, a camera, an idea and the outdoors and you've got yourself a successful media project.

Brodie - Media / Content Guru

Our Photographer / Content Creator, Brodie grew up in the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado where high country epic rides are the local favorite. After moving to the PNW in the summer of 2021, he's loving the steep, loamy, and rooty terrain that Bellingham has to offer.

 

Colin - Shippin' / Good Times Manager

Have you ever placed an order with us? Well chances are Colin was the one who packed and shipped it out. In addition to shipping hundreds of packages out every week, Colin is the official good-times manager. Have an issue with your order? Got a warranty issue you need a helping hand with? Maybe just having a bad day and need someone to talk to? Colin is your man!

Ben - Shipping / Label Slap Master

A master at slapping lables onto boxes, Ben works with Colin in the shipping department gathering and fulfilling orders. He is an experienced road biker that moved to Bellingham for school, where he was president of the cycling team. New to mountain bikes, Ben has recently been working on gaining confidence riding trails and, so far, has progressed to popping his front wheel off the gound! Its all about progression, right?
