Peter Good is still actively involved in the bike industry. He recently reactivated his amazing workshop and is - I believe - doing contract repair work for various retail suppliers. He is perhaps one of Australia's most creative and innovative bike designers. I recall cycling the far Northern Flinders with him in 2001, me riding my old Centurion mtb (bought new from Lifecycle) and Peter on his unique 'desert bike' with it's fixed front and rear racks, raised chain stays and central-frame water storage cradle. The uni-mog of off-road bikes!

Not an old chain, but seems like JT Cycles (Eliz & Pultney st) are gone.

Sign in Pultney St window mentions liquidators called in so one less to go to.

99bikes have opened up a second store at Prospect. Wouldn't have thought the demand was there but I guess time will tell.
If drivers and riders spent more time worrying about their responsibilities than their rights then roads would be far safer.

That new 99 bikes looks pretty good. Nice to see some alternatives now that a while bunch of shops switched to just selling specialized stuff.

They have a decent range too.
