Hi, I've been keen on bikes since I was a lad. Ever since I got my first taste going on a school organized ride in the port hills on a borrowed bike I was hooked! This has lead me to race both nationally here in NZ as well as through out Europe. I've loved every aspect of it from the technology, to the people, to the variety of terrain we can ride, and of course the bike riding community.

I've been perfecting my skills as a professional bike mechanic in bike shops around the world as a mechanic and manager for the last 10 years, and I thought it was about time I opened my own one, and offer just what I wanted when I was younger. A professional bike repair and service shop which doesn't judge you for your bike, run by a guy who knows heaps about bikes and biking, and also a place where I'll probably know everyone else who goes there.
