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.
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.
The Brisbane Blast is excited to offer a new activity as part of the criterium program that appeals to a segment of the cycling network. Fixed Gear racing overseas is growing rapidly whilst here in Australia there are no such events.

Stefan “Fish “ Vis racing the TEMPEST bike in german road crit classic “Rund um den Eigelstein”, Cologne.
In today‘s world of high modulus carbon fiber and complex hyro-formed aluminum there is something about the clean and classic look of a steel frame that will always appeal, and not only to the purists. Being made from Reynolds 725 tubing, the Tempest has slim and clean lines synonymous with a classic steel frame but in an entirely modern design. Steel is real!

Nice clip from Brisbane Brodie and friend Alee visiting
Gellie Custom Bikes around Melbourne.
Brodie and I decided it was a good idea to ride singlespeeds up some super steep hills around Melbourne in order to complete a spiritual pilgrimage to Gellie Custom Bikes - the location where my fixie frame and fork was built seven years ago!
Mean Streets is Melbourne's version of Monstertrack NYC. This year Mean Streets was run during the Cycle Messenger World Championships. The following footage takes in along for the ride that won that race.
No traffic No cold weather No crazy car drivers No headwinds No hills It is just you and your mates going head to head on the rollers. Come down and smash through over that mid week hump. Any one can ride you don't have to be a cyclist to have a crack, invite your mates and have a roll.
Pushies Galore is the Brisbane based bicycle swap, sell and show event for all cyclists. I think it's even the biggest bike event of this kind in the country, it's the 5th year, getting bigger and better every time. Much work and love has been put into this by the organisers. Check their FB page to stay up to date.
As every year we have a big stall with lots of bargains: vintage gear, new frames, new Hplusson rims, cycling kits and much more!
