Seasons greetings to all past, present and future Speed of Bike customers! Thank you all for a great year and I’m looking forward to 2019. I will be closed from December 24th and won’t be accepting any bikes or doing any work until January 3rd, so all bikes that haven’t been completed will be held until I pick up tools again in the New Year. Have a prosperous and safe holiday!
If you are considering buying an out-of-the-box bike from one of the big box retailers like Kmart, Target or Big-W and aren’t sure of your own bike building skills or your not confident in the skills of the stores’ builder then consider Speed of Bike. All you need to do is bring your purchase to us and we’ll do everything you need to get it under the tree in time for Christmas. Apart from wrap it – that’s all on you!
The weather is beautiful – when it’s not raining and the schools are out for the holidays. So why not beat the lethargy, help entertain the kids and get some sun and exercise at the same time by dusting off the family’s collection of two wheeled wonders and going out for a spin. If your bikes have been under the house longer than forever then bring them to Speed of Bike for a check over and a wash!
As a very special treat we are running a limited offer – from now until November 30th if you get a standard service with Speed of Bike we will treat you to a regular coffee! That’s right, all standard services will receive a voucher for a regular coffee at Polska Café which is right around the corner from us. Now you can enjoy a smooth ride and a smooth hit of caffeine together.

If you are conscious of your budget and are looking to buy a bike at Aldi – who are having a special offer on their 29er MTB, as well as some biking accessories, starting this Saturday (September 9th) you might want to consider Speed of Bike’s out-of-the-box building service. All you need to do is bring your purchase to us and we’ll assemble it to the correct standards, and dispose of the packaging, so you can ride it away without any worries.
If you’re travelling light and your only companion is your flexible friend, then Speed of Bike can help. We are now able to accept payment via Mastercard and Visa as well as the ever friendly cash and PayPal. No EFTPOS yet sadly 🙁
It’s that time of year when the kerbside is stacked up with interesting pieces of broken furniture, piles of wood and potential new rides. If you are tempted to grab yourself a free push bike you might want to get it checked out before you swing your leg over the saddle, and Speed of Bike can help you. Bring your finds to us and we’ll give it a safety inspection ($15) and make our recommendations. If you chose to go ahead with the work at Speed of Bike the cost of the safety inspection will come off the final cost. Simple!
The last couple of weeks has brought Speed of Bike plenty of interest – but we’re not sure if it was the Tour de France or the school holidays. Either way we want to keep the energy flowing and Brisbane cycling, so if you’ve been inspired to ride then give us a call. We have openings this week and with our commitment to a fast turn around we can have you back on two wheels in no time.
Due to ground works at Speed of Bike our front approach isn’t particularly wholesome and we’d rather you didn’t muddy shoes, so for customers in 4007, 4009, 4011, 4012, 4013 and 4014 we are offering a free pick-up and drop-off service for the next two weeks (offer ends July 23rd). Customers outside these postcodes can be accommodated for a nominal fee. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements and we’ll do our utmost to accommodate your schedule.
