Custom Converse High Tops from David Jones (Local brissie artist not store chain)

I got these in from David Jones today.  Love his work. Custom hand painted Converse High Tops in acrylic with a few clear coats over the top in a size 10.  So these babies are ready to wear if you want to walk in art.  Otherwise they just make a great display piece in the window.

Super Water Cutter

Love to get something like this for the shop.  For those particularly difficult repairs that just need a crazy pressure hose to cut stuff up.

Chrome Industries - A Time For Reflection

Just had a Chrome order come through today.  If you want anything Chrome for Xmas best to get your orders in the next week.

First Week in Heaven

Coming to the end of my first week as owner of Gear and I feel like I'm living in a Heaven on Earth.

Respect our Cycling Sisters

77-year-old cyclist tackles Stelvio Pass, downhill, at night with no bars or brakes

This guy is an inspiration.  Seen his old videos from '86 of him riding uphill with no brakes or handlebars.  That he's still going at 77 is nothing short of astounding.  

Everything in its right place

It's my first day as the new owner of the shop and I feel like I'm in the right place.  This video seems to express that in a cycling way.  Erik has popped in a couple of times and reckons I'll be seeing a lot more of him before he goes.  Been meeting some interesting people and helping people with various cycling needs and questions.  It feels good to be where starting as a bicycle messenger 8 years ago has led me.  I loved my life on the bike and now I get to help people with their rides.  This is such a dream come true and I have all the people who've supported me to thank.

Party! - The Gear change

I don't really realise it myself yet but my last days have come at the shop that I started almost 8 years ago. It has been an absolute pleasure doing this all those years but the time has come for me to move back to The Low Lands. Luckily I have found someone more than excited to continue Gear in the person of Craig. I started the shop from being a bike messenger and Craig has also been working on the bike here in Brisbane for years so it's cool that I have found Craig, who wants to continue the shop in the same style, a local community bike shop focussing on urban cycling and get as many people riding in style as possible.
