Singlespeed Nationals

Posted in in Cyclocross, Events, General Stuff on August 20th, 2009 by schmadzie | No Comments


The Australian Single Speed Nationals are on for 2009 over the weekend of the 28th and 29th of November. Details and registration at

This extravaganza is dedicated to the dedicated. The Single Speed Nationals 2009 is an event to be missed only by the foolhardy.


28-29 November

The stunning harbour side city of Newcastle will host the festivities, with Hunter Mountain Bike Association (HMBA) looking after the main race which will be held at their newest trail network, Awaba. There will also be a treasure trove of novelty entertainment to keep even the most distracted spectator amused.

Try to make some extra time around this event. There is enough social riding planned to put saddle sores on the most callused freckle. With Glenrock and Killingworth down the road and Ourimbah just a little further away, you will have no trouble finding the perfect trail.

Don’t forget to pack your surfboard and towel as the coast is riddled with pristine beaches to wash away the hard earned trail dust.

The shenanigans on offer will include plenty of old school racing events, and don’t be too surprised if there are some twists and turns to the standard single speed race format.

Skidders, Bunny Hoppers and those inclined to one wheel will be well catered for, as will those who are just looking for a cool place to sink a few ales with like minded gear free folk.

16″ crits and the Huffy toss will be back with a few other spectacles rarely seen but eagerly awaited.

Planning is well under way and the website will be regularly updated with all the information you require, not to mention a few things you would rather not know.

Happy planning, we look forward to seeing you in November.

Sign the Massbug MTB/BMX/Skate Petition..

Posted in in Advocacy, Cyclocross on October 11th, 2007 by nicholasb | No Comments

are running a petition to urge the City of Syndey Council to develop a “BMX/MTB track and BMX/Skate facility” at Sydney Park, down the bottom of King St. Sounds like it would be killer for some cyclocross racing as well. Add your signature next time you’re in the shop, and check out Hell On Wheels for all your BMX needs..

a few of our bikes are going cheap on ebay

Posted in in Commuting, Cyclocross on February 17th, 2007 by schmadzie | 1 Comment


PLease note.

NO we don’t have any other bikes for sale cheap.

Please don’t be offended if we don’t want to spend any time talking about these bikes if you come into the shop. They are on ebay because they haven’t sold for whatever reason. I just want to get rid of them for cheap, and make some space. We do not want to spend time talking about things that we are losing money on already. I’d rather spend time talking with our regular customers who appreciate our valuable expertise, and are willing to pay a fair price for it.

But, they are bargains if you know what you are after!!

Amusing comments on the blog are, of course, acceptable.
