  • Hi all,

    been a while since i posted. So in a month i pack my bags and head over to South West Oz (Margaret River) and i was wondering if anyone knows of any fixies or good bike shops in that area as I'm keen to build up a fixie straight after i've bought a new wetsuit (straight away!!)

    Any takers?

  • Yeah I lived in Perth till my early 20's before moving over here. Problem is I've been here now nearly 10 years. My extended family are all still there. My uncle builds really nice high flange hubs to order. Apart from that I don't know it's been a while. We were all into skateboarding when I left.

  • Margaret River - top waves fella

    If you want to see amazing old italian road bikes then fremantle coffee strip most mornings,

    the older italian geezers pootle around on their colnagos and decamp for espressos on the cappucino strip. Will be there for a month in January so give me a shout, theres some beautiful riding there and I'll be taking me bike with me

  • Another bunch of Anglais heading to Oz while poor hippy suffers through English winter.. sigh

    You might wanna ask on cyclingforums.com - find the aus.bicycle section.
    There's also http://www.fixed.org.au/ which might be able to help.

    Fsck.. never even been to WA.. I've seen more of Germany than Australia..

  • I used to ride around the river in Perth - Absolutely beautiful - down to Freo from the Esplenade then back up through South Perth.

  • sweet riding MA3K... Perth to Mandurah was an 'interesting' ride.

    Loads of great road riding in St Margs, great forests with massive karri trees - ya lucky b**stard!!

    how long you there for, permanent move?

  • Chris,

    i just moved form perth to london a week ago. fixed gear bikes are few and far between over there. theres a shop called Elite Racing Cycles in northbridge which is probably the best place to go for fixed stuff. google the name and they have a site.

    you might want to try another place call Riders Choice in leederville - again google for site.

    hope you enjoy your stay perth is a beautiful place to ride.

    hope it was some help

  • macchiato at Gino's in Freo after an early morning ride up the coast road /// Yang man, you must be missing it but welcome to Landan Tahhhhhn

  • sunday session at cottlesloe pub, paradise, wall to wall quality eye candy. not like over here, spot the good lookin chic, like spot the ugly chic.

  • I remember them good old days.

    Why are you moving to Perth to buy a flat in Melbourne? To save money?

  • Ah great info, thanks guys. I'm heading over to there to join my other half who is Margies born and bred, summer there and then...... who knows Perth/NZ perhaps?

  • ChrisW Ah great info, thanks guys. I'm heading over to there to join my other half who is Margies born and bred, summer there and then...... who knows Perth/NZ perhaps?

    They're quite far apart.
