The Plug – Dynamo Powered USB Recharging

Posted in in New products, Uncategorized on June 29th, 2012 by nicholasb | 2 Comments

We’re very pleased to be stocking The Plug, the neatest dynamo powered device charger we’ve ever seen. A 5V USB socket is built into the stem top-cap, and it connects to an existing hub dynamo through the fork steerer column. It’s got a capacitor built in, so will happily charge iPhones and other devices that are fussy about their power supply, but will work with any camera, GPS, smoothie maker or electric drill that recharges via USB.

It’s fantastic for long distance touring, and a great addition to bikes like the Vivente World Randonneur that are already specced with generator hubs. They’re made by Tout Terrain from Germany and more details are available on their site

We’ve got a demo unit set up that you’re welcome to come in and play with. The Plug itself is $200 and includes the PAT module. We’ve got iPhone holders and cables, as shown above for an extra $60, and installation labour would be $40.

New Stuff: PDW Mach Schnell Goggles! $25

Posted in in New products on March 27th, 2012 by nicholasb | 4 Comments


Nick is unreasonably excited about these things. When we first spied them on and asked our supplier to get some, we had to work hard to convince them we weren’t joking. They’re a design based on a World War 2 era goggle for desert and mountain troops, for protection against dust, wind and rain.

We’ve had alot of happy customers find rain-riding nirvana through the combination of full coverage mudguards and Carradice rain-capes, and I think these are the missing piece of that puzzle. Although we can keep you and your bike clean and dry, and a peaked cycling cap does a fair bit to keep the rain out of your eyes, without glasses or these goggles, you’ll be squinting against rain in your eyes, and especially at night, that’s not effective for staying aware of what’s going on on the road around you.

Unlike a set of cycling glasses with interchangeable lenses, these goggles pack flat and can easily slip in with a folded up coat or cape, won’t crack or get damaged and will be there, handy when you need them.

It’s just my luck that they’d finally come in as the weather seems to have taken a turn for the better, but for $25 they’re an unbeatable addition to your wet-weather kit.

I made a little video to show of the lights we’re stocking now that daylight savings is over. Sorry for the rather abrupt ending – ran out of room on the memory card.

Back for 2011

Posted in in New products on January 13th, 2011 by nicholasb | No Comments

You wouldn’t know it from looking at our blog posts and tweets, but we’re back in the workshop after a short Christmas and New Year break – I managed to get my little girl on the bike for the first time, which was a very proud dad moment, and terrifying all at the same time.

Wanted to share a few of the sweet new Nutcase Helmets, panniers and saddle bags we’ve got in stock – check out the pictures above.

Brompton orders are getting here quickly, we’ve got our pricing structure sorted out, and they continue to be the best combination of ride quality and folded size for any folding bike. New colours for 2011 are hot pink, claret and sage green, and the raw-steel clear coat option is back.

We’re loving the new version of the Vivente World Randonneurs – particularly the Trekking bar version – really nicely put together, good value complete steel touring bikes. They’ve been super popular, as it seems every second customer is heading to Tasmania, France or NZ and wants a solid bike for their trip.

Our plan, as ever, is to offer the highest level of professional bicycle service and repair, work harder to source unique, useful, interesting bicycle related stuff from all over the world, and if we’re lucky, offer a range of production Bobo Bikes frames and builds towards the middle of the year.

We also wanna do more rides with our customers and live up to the promise our latest t-shirts, so I dunno ’bout you, but I’m pumped..

Love you guys..
