PERTH: Recommend me a good bike appeal/clothing store

Postby anonymousmoose » Tue Nov 06, 2012 9:39 pm

I'm ordering a lot of my accessories online... but when it comes to clothing, I never really buy online.

Can any West Australian recommend me a store which sells good bike clothing for a fair price? I'm after some padded riding [normal look style] shorts, maybe a top, gloves etc....

Also, do stores like Myre, etc sell bike shorts etc?

Honestly your best option is your Local bike shop. Myer won't have proper padded bike shorts. You could try a sports store, but I'd stick to my LBS.

+1

though they do have a lot of top of the range stuff, so expect a fair price, but a high fair price.


cycles bespoke in bayswater has some good gear as well.

I bought some on the way home. I live in East Perth and stopped past a bike shop called 'Ride Advice' in Perth, Milligan street. Small store but they had the shorts for $79 and they look quite good. Felt a bit funny wearing padded shorts for the 1st time but they did improve my ride quality. Went for a ride last night but had to head back early as my rear-light broke :( I'll get a refund or replacement tonight form the bike shop.
