If you missed out on Ausbike this year and you’re making a special trip to Melbourne for the 2010 World Championships, you’ll be pleased to know that The Bike Shop is where your favourite products are at.
If your favourite products aren’t there, you do have the opportunity to fall in love with something new, a new bike, new wheels and new cycling kit, the possibilities are endless. Located down on the Geelong Cunningham pier, you will find a large range of brands represented.
Feeling a little peckish? Check in with the boys at the Power Bar stand, they were handing out samples early this morning and no doubt have many more up their sleeves.
Be warned though, The Bike Hub is handing out cow bells, if you’re after a quiet ride home, its best to by-pass this stand if you have children in tow.
Rapha and Apres Velo have the low-down on all things stylish for male and female cyclists, pop in and get dressed in your best; it’s time to make an impression Australia!
Trek: Too many logo’s? Nah, not enough
Trek Bicycles Australia has got some fancy time trial bikes with even hotter wheels, they’re deep dish, they’re carbon fibre and they’re really nice to look at.
Giant has the right idea with colour co-ordinated zipps.
Confused about Kevlar and why you need it in your tyre? Schwalbe has enough information to sink a ship, do quiz them, they may know something you don’t.
If you need a break from the racing you will find The Bike Shop on the Geelong Cunningham Pier, it’s only steps from the road race and time trial course.
