Summers just around the corner – which means your bike is about to see a whole lot more use. The winter months can wreak havoc on your bikes drive train and the rest of its components. Regular servicing increases the lifespan of your bicycle, but more importantly, keeps you on the road or trail.
This October we will be doing our three levels of servicing at half price – so there isn’t a better time to give your bike the care and maintenance it deserves.
To book your bike in call us on 08 9529 1655 or pop into the shop with your bike.
A little extra boost can lead to incredible possibilities. When you ride an electric bike, there is no ride too long, no hill to steep and no place your legs can’t take you. Ditch the daily traffic jam, get more exercise and feel great about treading more lightly on the planet. And best of all – have a ton of fun along the way.
How do e-bikes work?
E-bikes are not electric motorcycles. They don’t have a throttle and they require your input to make them move forward. E-bikes use pedal-assist motors, so your effort level determines how much power the motor gives you back. Riding an e-bike is incredibly intuitive and if you can ride a normal bike you can most definitely ride an electric bike.
How fast can an e-bike go?
In Australia, E-Bikes are governed to 25km/h. This means you can still ride them on shared bicycle and walking paths. It keeps everyone safe and extends the run time of your battery.
How far can they go?
The size of the battery, terrain and assistance level of the motor will determine how far you can ride your e-bike. Most e-bikes will get between 40-180km in a single charge.
What e-bikes do we sell?
We sell Trek, Giant, Cannondale, Merida and Specialized e-bikes. All are slightly different but all offer premium battery and motor combination. There are so many e-bikes on the market and it can often be extremely confusing and very hard to make a decision about what bike you should buy – but that’s why we’re here. We have a team of knowledgable staff that will help you wade through the e-bike jargon and get you on the right e-bike.

Fathers day is just around the corner so here are some of our top gifts to spoil dad this Sunday.
You can’t go wrong with a set of a fresh set of gloves for dad. Every cyclist knows the joys of sliding into a fresh pair of gloves before a heading out on a ride. They’ll boost dad’s moral and mean you don’t have to see his ratty old pair any longer!
2. Oakley Sunglasses
Get dad something super bling this fathers day and treat him to a new pair of premium sunnies. Oakley has long been the gold standard for eyewear in the sporting world and with a heap of styles, colours and lens technologies there will be something to suit your dad’s need.
3. Cleaning Products
You’ve probably noticed your Dad spends more time cleaning his bike then cleaning the house. So why not get him the right gear for the job! We’ve got a huge range of bike-specific cleaning products in the shop and sweet little kits that have everything he needs to get his bike sparkly clean.
4. Spares and Tools
If dad goes riding by himself than it’s worthwhile treating him to a good spares kit. It will save his bacon if he’s out on a ride and suffers a flat tyre and also means you won’t receive a phone call at 6:30 am on a Sunday morning to pick him up.
We all love our dads (most of the time anyway) and we want them to be safe while they’re out on the roads. A good set of LED lights is a great gift and will give you and Dad peace of mind while he’s out on the roads.
6. Gift Voucher
Still, have no idea what to get Dad? Leave it up to him! A gift voucher is a great gift and allows dad the choice to spend it on whatever he so desires; better still takes the pressure off you.
We hope we’ve made buying a gift for fathers day a little easier for you this year and wish you and your family a very special fathers day this Sunday.
