What are some recommendations for a good bike workshop in Sydney? I need a few things done I dont have the tools or knowledge to do. I Googled last night and Bike Brain in Pyrmont won best bike shop award in 2011...anyone been here and can recommend it?
Felice at Cycling Projects in Ashbury. Only works on higher end bikes. I just got my Time back from a service and it's never run as well. He's comfortable working with carbon bikes as well as others I've been to get a bit nervous.
He is very good with Campag.
Was about to come back to this thread as my gear is almost ready to go. I have a De Rosa Merak frame waiting for a Campy Record group...does Felice at Cyling Projects offer a warranty or "drop in" service on his work?
What sort of cost am I looking at?
Dropped my De Rosa Merak frame and a bag of bits into Cycling Projects yesterday arvo and picked it up today fully assembled. Cannot praise Felice and Bernard enough. Their honesty, attention to detail and customer service is probably the best I've ever encountered in any shop. Will be taking my bikes their religiously from now on.
Thanks for the recommendations
Depends on what kind of bike. For roadies, VeloFix in Rozelle is a good one.
Bianchi, Ridley, Montague, GT, Garmin and All things Apple
Giant Sydney at 230 Clarence Street in CBD have done my disc hybrid and road bike. Even when not purchased from their shop/brand they are fantastic.
I'll be taking my bike there shortly, when they do a full service they strip the bike and put it through some kind of bike washing machine - you get it back clean as a whistle and fully set up!
Forgive the syrupy praise but I took my bike somewhere more local recently and they managed to make the bike worse, it was close and only a minor adjustment to be done but now she clicks and creaks like a 10 year old bike, shame its only a couple of months old.
quick question about cycling projects (just tried to call them but no one was there unfortunately) roughly what do they charge for a service? i am after brakes, gears serviced and headset and BB checked. also are they open on saturdays?
I hope it is ok to bring back an old thread.
Any updates on these suggestions?
How's Clarence St Cyclery? They seem to be good from the small encounters I have had with their service staff.
I was also impressed by the staff at Atelier De Velo. Maybe I am easily impressed
Also, is it disloyal of me to go to a different shop than my regular local bike shop (with whom I have become friendly) for a full service as a type of second opinion? I have had a 10 year old second hand carbon bike for 18 months now and thought it would be wise to have another set of eyes go over it.
