We stock a small range of new bikes focused on city and touring bikes which are practical, reliable and long-lasting. We don’t try to fill every segment and pricepoint, instead we stock bikes that suit our customers and that we think provide great value.
Most bikes that we stock have Steel frames because we like the ride properties and durability of a well designed and made steel frame. That said, we’re not Luddites so we’re not averse to carbon and aluminium where appropriate.
Many bikes that we sell are ordered in or built up from scratch, so test riding is not always possible. We have a fit bike that we set up to determine the right size and setup for you.
SOMA Fabrications is a small bicycle company founded in San Francisco in 2001, and they have been producing no nonsense, good quality steel frames and reliable parts ever since.
We have done many custom bike builds around SOMA frames, and they have recently they started offering complete bikes based on a selection of their framesets We are the exclusive Victorian stockist.

Surly are a no-nonsense bicycle company. They make the great value touring bikes and always spec sensible parts that are reliable and great value for money. We keep a Long Haul Trucker and a Crosscheck on the floor for people to test ride, then order them in for customers. There are a lot of options for Surlys ranging from buying them with their stock parts and riding away, right through to doing a fully custom build from the frame up.
In addition to these bikes we also do a lot of full restorations on bikes ranging from period correct builds of 80s steel road bikes through to powder-coated and modernised step-throughs.
Finally, we do a lot of custom builds based around frames that customers already own or on frames from Surly, Rawland, Soma, Salsa and so on, which we can get in to order.
