We have recently introduced the Focus range of bicycles to our Fyshwick shop and have been very happy with the quality of the bikes at all price points. From the kids bikes to the top of the line road, cyclocross and mountain bikes the component quality for the money represents terrific value. The feedback from customers has been very positive and we are very excited about the future of this brand. We have a wide range of bikes for you to test ride so come in and check them out.
The above Focus Blackforest 29r and 27r have been some of our best selling bikes of the summer so far. We’ll be presenting more of the Focus range shortly.
Cross Continent electric bicycle ride powers into Canberra – Meet the Riders and Hill Climb Event.
On Sep 9 at the ANU Recyclery, Maurice, Abraham and Wai Won Ching will be holding an information evening all about touring by electric bicycle and on using electric bicycles in Canberra, followed the next day by a local ride up Canberra’s best hills. The trio started out in Perth on August 3 and will have ridden their eZee electric bicycles over 5000km when they arrive in Canberra. The unsupported ride has become the first to cross the Nullarbor plain on electric bicycles, travelling up to 200km per day before recharging at roadhouses.
Maurice, born in Canberra and Abraham, both 29 years old, run Glow Worm Bicycles in Sydney, a bike shop supplying electric bicycles throughout Australia. Both are 2007 graduates of the renewable energy engineering program at UNSW and submitted their honours thesis on the topic of electric bicycle technology. Maurice took the first electric bicycle to the northern tip of the mainland Australia on a 4500km ride from Cape York to Sydney last year. Wai Won Ching, 63 years old and Singaporean national, is the CEO of eZeebike which has been exporting electric bicycles to Western markets for the past 12 years. Wai Won has travelled from Shanghai for this ride, which he says is ‘the longest holiday he has taken in his life’. He has previously ridden his products the entire length of the Silk Road and on a 3000km off road adventure in Africa.
Canberrans are invited to an informal event to meet the group and their bikes, hear a short presentation on their trip so far, with plenty of time left for questions and open discussion on about touring by electric bicycle or about electric bicycles in general. Test rides will be available after the event. The following morning the group will be tackling Black Mountain and Mount Ainslie on their touring electric bicycles before heading off towards the South Coast via Bungendore. All welcome to join in on this friendly ride to experience firsthand how effective these bikes are. Meet at Black Mountain Peninsula at 7:30am on Tuesday Sep 10. RSVP to Maurice below.

Rocky has unveiled their mighty fine 27.5″ (or 650B) wheeled trail bike, the Altitude. With adjustable geometry and 150mm travel this guy looks pretty dialled for rough all-day rides in the mountains. And as Rocky Mountain aptly say in this quote, they are right behind this wheel size:
“Although they are arguably the quickest handling, 26” wheels simply give up too much momentum when rolling through the rough stuff. The limitations of both 26” and 29” for this kind of bike made 27.5” a no-brainer for the Altitude.
