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.
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.

FISH AND HIS TEMPEST AT ROAD CRIT

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!
