At a loose end in Adelaide

At a loose end in Adelaide

Postby gorilla monsoon » Tue Feb 19, 2013 8:32 pm

I'm in the City of Churches on business and have a break in proceedings tomorrow afternoon(February 20) and thought someone might be able to tell me if there are any bike shops in the CBD that are worth a look.

I'm staying at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Hindmarsh Square if that helps.

Cheers.

Rundle Street has a few worth sticking your nose in Euride / Mega Bike (very flashy and yuppie) has a good range of European bikes , Super Elliotts (right across the road) is old school has some of Cadels old bikes in it. A good range but packed in nice and tight!! ( every chance I get I do a quick walk through for fun).
Bicycle Express 124 Halifax St is a good open modern shop with Trek Colnago Cannondale and more.

Thanks for the information. Looks like the loose end just tightened up. :D

Also, the Fringe is on. The hotel will have a guide. That will give you something to do once the bike shops close.

A nice thought but I have a product presentation at 5.30pm that will run through to the dreaded corporate dinner that finishes about 10pm, two hours of catch-up work before bed then a 6am start tomorrow.

Found Euride and the new Giant shop. Staff at both very helpful (the young guy at Euride especially) and visiting them was a good way to get my fix, not to mention a great way to kill an hour.

Once again, thank you all for your help.

BTW, does Adelaide have an overabundance of hot-looking women or have I been away from home for too long?

It was a peaceful demonstration, MichaelB. :D and the world might be a better, safer place. Might be. Just a little.
