Meet our Team

Andrew Phelps

Where the idea all started. Road, cyclocross and mountain racing-he's done it all. Oh and an Ironman was in there too! He rides through the trail with such seamless fluidity, and there isn't a hill he can't climb. Did we mention he loves to ride his carbon single-speed hardtail on most rides?! He's the resident outdoors-man, and is as proficient with a bow as he is with a wrench.

Angela Phelps

The other half of the business; our favourite "boss lady". When she's not crunching numbers in the office, she's out carving the trails on her mountain bike or cruising on her e-bike. Regardless of what she's doing, color and style are always in abundance!

Fernando Darakchian

Speed Scientist. Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Fernando brings spice to the sales floor! The first one to declare you his friend, he is eager to help you get out on your bike. Bike fittings are his game - he can help you achieve a more comfortable ride with his extensive Trek Precision Fit training. Watch for him on our weekly club rides!

Myles Prins

Bike Ninja since 2013. A lover of all things Trek and Bontrager. He pledges his allegiance to 29 inch wheels! You can see Myles on our club rides racing everyone up the hill. His bikes are all murdered out, Darth Vader style.

Emma Phelps

Colour matching expert. With her 10 years of experience at Cranky's, Emma can get you styled on your bike with her famous eye for colour coordination! As a 2018 Liv Ambassador, she is looking forward to hosting multiple cycling events to get more women involved in the sport! Watch for her cyclocross racing debut this fall!

Ryan Alexandruk

Wrench Wizard. Master mechanic and the fastest flat repair man in the west! When he isn't wrenching away on bikes in the service department, he's shredding trails in Edmonton or the mountains. So enduro! Ryan is a ride leader for our club mountain bike rides and inspires everyone to push their comfort zones and try new things on the trails!

Alexa Prins

Lover of all things purple. If she's not on the sales floor, you can bet she's found a trail to shred or is planning her next big road trip to the mountains! Alexa is proud to be a 2018 Liv Ambassador for Alberta. She had big goals for getting more women out on the dirt this season. Alexa is our resident photographer and she makes a mean cup of coffee!

Craig Jones

Craig has been a customer of ours since 2005. He joined the Cranky’s family in 2016 because he liked the Cranky's culture so much. He needed to be a part of the team that brings that atmosphere to all customers. Having ridden road bicycles for over half a century, Cranky’s opened the door for this long-time roadie to start “sending it” on the singletrack with the rest of the crew. When he’s not on the sales floor or riding his bikes, Craig is a paramedic. So if he tells you something about safety on your bike, pay attention, because he never wants to meet any of our customers in his other job!
