Spring is here and Speed of Bike is super excited about what the season has to offer – sun lit morning rides, putting cycling gloves back in storage and the dreaded swooping magpie. No matter what your homegrown cure to beat these pests is, the tried and tested solution is to pedal hard and fast! So before you go out for a long ride why not pop round and get your bike serviced? It might be the difference between a cruisy pedal and a hasty retreat.
Our second year was better than our first and to celebrate we are offering 25% off basic and standard services for the next week (offer closes July 7th)! A big thank you to all our customers who have brought in their road bikes, mountain bikes, children’s bikes, commuters, wheelchairs, tricycle and recumbants from Nundah, Hendra, Nudgee, Boondall, Hamilton, Wooloowin, Wavell Heights, Banyo, Chermside, Kedron, Everton Park, Kangaroo Point, Clayfield, Ascot and Northgate. It’s certainly a growing list of people who use Speed of Bikes to keep their pushies rolling along. A bit of bad news though: with the start of the new financial year we have added a new level of service and made a small adjustment to our prices, but it we promise it won’t affect your customer service experience.
With winter here many riders hang up their helmets and pack their cleats away against the cold mornings. If you’ve been riding hard all summer you should treat your bike to a pre-Spring service so it will be in tip top shape when you’re ready to get back on the saddle. Pop down to Speed of Bike for a preventative Basic service that can resolve any wear and tear before it’s too late.

Have a prosperous and safe holiday!
