Sydney LBS recommendation

Postby mjg9001 » Fri Dec 06, 2013 11:57 am

Hi -

I'm planning a long distance ride of the Americas (~30k km) and my LHT needs a proper service before I go.

Can anyone recommend a good LBS with experience of touring bikes/needs that can do an in depth service (probably full rebuild plus parts replacement)? I'm in Bondi and I've been to Woollies Wheels & BikeLab just to buy a few things but wasn't super-impressed with the attitude. Are their mechanics any good? Anywhere else vaguely local you can recommend?

Check out ride in workshop in balgowlah. Seriously know their stuff and very good value. Though it can be hard to get a booking!

City Bike Depot has experience dealing with ultra endurance. They built and prepared Arran Pearson's bike for the Tour Divide in the US.

By the sounds of it you'd like Cheeky Transport in Newtown.
