Soma and Surly house builds

We've been building tried and tested commuting, touring and adventure bikes for a while now so we have a great understanding of what people want in a bike. This had led us to creating some off the shelf custom builds. Thus allowing us to hand pick parts and QC the entire build process. Some of the b...


Jamis Coda – Best Commuter bike around $1000

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, w ...


Adam’s SRAM Rival1 Wolverine

Adam didn't realise he needed a SOMA Wolverine, until he saw mine. "I saw an orange bike on your Instagram feed" said the man as he wandered around the workshop, "I am on the lookout for a new bike, and had been thinking about an internal gear hub town bike, but that bike looks like fun". The seed ...


Helen’s Custom 650B Soma Double Cross Disc

Helen's Double Cross is a real head turner. She wanted a sporty, do-it-all commuting and touring bike with lots of silver bits to keep things classy. She expected the end result to be smooth and comfortable but was surprised when it turned out to be pretty damn speedy as well. ...

Bikes that work beautifully.

The workshop is the heart of Commuter Cycles – fixing and building bikes is what we do.

We take great pride in our workmanship and think dynamo lights, panniers and mudguards are cool. We love the trickier jobs and go out of our way to stock unusual parts that are hard to find in typical bikeshops. We’re bike nuts too, so when we help put together a custom build or some hand built wheels, our advice on what will work best is based on what we ride ourselves.

We carry a select range of bikes for touring, commuting and adventure cycling. We are the home of SOMA and Surly in Melbourne and also carry Vivente, Papillionaire and Jamis.

If you love riding your bike from A to B, we are your bikeshop.
