Located down the Alexandra Parade end of Brunswick Street, this bicycle workshop is staffed by three passionate and friendly blokes — and an adorable spaniel named Lottie. Don't be fooled by the size of the space; it's a full workshop capable of all manner of servicing, repairs, builds and customisations. Is your vintage Melbourne Star collecting dust in the garage? Want to get your mountain bike into tip-top shape before hitting the trail? There's no job too big or too small for the team here, and they generally aim for a 24-hour turnaround – parts and additional work pending, of course. Learn more at the website.
Cycling is a fun and cheap way to get to work or school, run errands or get your daily exercise. There's no denying that Melburnians love to cycle. The city of Melbourne estimated in a recent census that more than 20,000 residents go for a ride in a typical week and nearly half of all households have at least one working bicycle.
Whether you're an avid cyclist looking for an upgrade or you're not too comfortable yet on two wheels, these are the best shops in Melbourne to help you find the perfect bike for you. Some of them also have friendly mechanics on hand to assist you with a bike service or any repairs you may need.
