Le Knicks Cycling ApparelAustralian Bicycle Shops
It took a visionary to open a dedicated cycle clothing and nutrition store in Melbourne in 1991. Cycling was a sport over there in Europe, cars were king and few people rode to work or for leisure it seemed. And Beach Rd was popular for the cyclists out there but there were not that many. So hats off to our founder, Max Swinton, for the vision and the courage to get ahead of the curve and establish such a revolutionary idea.
It must have worked, as we are here all these years later and growing with the times. Beach Rd is one of the great cycling routes in the world, On a weekend, 11,000 or more cyclists will travel up and down the road each day, savouring the pleasure of simply riding their bike. And at the centre of this Beach Rd cycling culture lies Le Knicks.
Le Knicks was established to offer great product, great service and a place to drop in for anyone on a bike or indeed swimming or running at the beach. We want to support everyone’s journey as they fall in love with the joy of the two wheeled journey and fast or slow, young or old, woman or man, we want to help you get the best out of the experience!

We stock both on and off bike apparel for cyclists and triathletes. Our nutrition is also extensive with Endura, Torq, Shotz, Gu, Clif, Powerbar and Enervit all stocked. We also pride ourselves on our range of accessories such as helmets, shoes, sunglasses, skincare, bike parts and lubes. Our brands include Bont, Kask, Morgan Blue, BBB, Salice and more. And last but not least, we are huge fans of the history of cycling and stock an extensive range of retro gear in homage to the golden history of cycling.
