Chris Barnes is one of Rack N Road's most veteran managers. He has worked for us since 1996, been a manager since 1997. Along with running the Seattle store, Chris also is the general manager of all Rack N Road locations. Chris says he loves his job because of the interaction with customers and co-workers. He went to school to be a high school history teacher, but after 3 years of teaching, he decided that selling racks and installing hitches was more his speed. In his off time Chris likes to spend time with his kids. When not being a responsible father, Chris enjoys snowboarding, skating and playing golf. As a side project, Chris runs a punk rock record label called 206 Records (Check out www.206records.com) and plays bass guitar in a local punk band called Oil Can.

As a mobile SUP and kayak instructor I carry large loads of boards or kayaks on a regular basis. Rack and Road had been a great asset to our business in providing professional and friendly service thus making our job not ony easier but safer. In two recent visits they were able to retrofit a new rack while I waited (not long) saving me from having to come back another time during our busy season...
We needed to fix our Thule rack and bike mounts. The great help at Rack N Road found inexpensive but functional parts that look great to replace what we needed to fix. We dropped off our car, went for a walk to a cafe around Greenlake and an hour later the rack was all done and installed.
I recently purchased a Yakima roof rack and accessories from the Seattle store. I called ahead to request a hold on the parts. When I arrived everything was ready, the sales guy loaded the parts in my car. The whole transaction didn't take more than 10 minutes. Great service.
