Bike Builder / LBS Recommendation

Bike Builder / LBS Recommendation

Postby brazilianhipster » Mon Jan 09, 2012 9:14 pm

Hi,

I've recently moved to Brisbane from the UK. Over the last month or so, I have been buying parts to build up a road bike.

Can anyone recommend a decent bike builder / LBS in the city?

Thanks.

Not exactly what you are looking for, but this guy might be able to help or know where to go,Bicycle Stu.

Otherwise I've heard there is a bike store out western suburbs way that allows customers to work on their own bikes, and has a mechanic handy to lend a hand/offer advice. Not sure which one or where it is, though Jindalee rings a bell.

Hi,

The place in the Western Suburbs, called Cycle Skills is on 17 Mile Rocks Road, at Sinamon Park near Jindallee. James the Mechanic is an Englishman and a good mechanic.

Cheers,

+1 .... Have used the bike shed services myself and can vouch for the convenience or just being to have access to a full equipped bench with all the tools and their mechanic (James) is on site to assist you with help if you need.

Are you after a hand made frame?
LLewellyn Bikes is the only one I know of in Bris. He does very nice work.

Thanks for your replies so far.

I was looking more for a LBS or bike builder, rather than building it myself or having one custom built.

I have the frame and all the components and am looking for someone who can just put it all together.

Any suggestions of a LBS in Brisbane, handy at putting a high end road bikes together (BMC Teammachine SLR01 with BB30 and Ultegra), would be great.

Thanks.

+1 for Steve at Crankstar. He built up my bike exactly like you're looking to do.
