A bikeshop with a difference…

Commuter Cycles is a bike workshop dedicated to everyday cyclists. Fixing bikes is what we do. If you love your bike, and ride it to get from A to B, Commuter Cycles is your bike shop.Commuter-Cycles-4

We offer tailored servicing and repairs, reliable accessories and good value replacement parts. We take great pride in our workmanship and think bright lights, panniers and mudguards are cool. At Commuter Cycles, the workshop is the shop, so you deal with the same people who look after your bike.

If you’re after a bike, we also sell complete Surly bikes and Gazelles, or can build your dream steed from the ground up.

Better still, Commuter Cycles makes looking after your bike easy by offering courtesy bikes, opening early and closing late, and we’re conveniently located next to the Upfield bikepath and Brunswick station.

Jamis Coda – Best Commuter bike for under $1000

September 16th, 2014 - no comments

The Jamis Coda is our favourite ‘budget’ commuter bike. They are Chromoly City Bikes with a sensible mix of parts, room for wide tyres and mud guards, braze-ons for racks, and they’re a good looking bike with understated black and silver paint work.

For someone riding more than 3 or 4 days a week, we think they offer fantastic value.

September 2nd, 2014 - no comments

We are having a Garage Sale on Saturday September 13th.

It will run all day in line with our new Saturday opening hours of 10am to 4pm.

There will be a range of parts and accessories on sale – all are new. We need to make room at the workshop for our full range of SOMA complete bikes that are arriving soon, so we’re clearing out old stock, discontinued lines, products with damaged packaging or things that are incomplete, but still useful as spares or singles items.

2014 Vivente World Randonneur – in Stock!

July 25th, 2014 - no comments

Vivente is a small Australian bicycle company, and we’ve been stocking their World Randonneur models for a long time. They represent excellent value for money in a loaded touring bike, and also suit themselves very well to the dedicated commuter cyclist. The brains behind the company, Noel, is constantly tweaking them to make sure every detail is considered, from the frame features, right down to the choice of spokes.
