As you have probably noticed, we are very proud of the athletes that we support. The weekend just past was a great one for Wembley Cycles Racing, so we wanted to share some of their stories.
On the gravity side Shaun competed in the first WA State DH round at the Goatfarm MTB Park. Despite feeling a bit beat up after a long stint racing and riding over East and in NZ, Shaun put in a good run for 9th place. He then proceeded to crash his brains out in the toughest rock garden on the track during his Top 30 run, and did some damage to his ribs. Check out the crash here, wild! We hope you heal up soon Shaun!
On the tarmac the Duffield twins had a great result at the Batavia Triathlon in Geraldton, while Ben took a win at the final round of the WA Triathlon series in Hillarys.
Congratulations to you all, legends!
We are looking forward to a strong performance from the team at the Jorgenson Park 4 Hour next Sunday!
This is 9/150, size large.

It is no secret that we are big Mavic fans. But now we have officially gone Crossmax crazy…
Keen on a new set of hoops for your trail/AM bike? Come and see us to demo a set of Crossmax Enduro wheels in either 26 or 27. They are stiff, light, easy to work on and yellow. What more could you want?
If your feet feel left out, we have also just landed a size run of the Crossmax shoes. Our first impression is that they fit like a glove! These shoes are hugely popular in Europe with the enduro crowd, we think that this is for a good reason….
Can’t believe that it is Friday again (although no complaining, bring on a long weekend of riding!)
Our big arrival for the week was the new Specialized Turbo e-bike. If you live a little too far from work to ride then this is a great alternative to taking the car, with no sweating required! Or perhaps you like the idea of being able to climb hills at 25kph with ease?
We undertook specific training on the Turbo on Wednesday night, so have a chat with one of our staff for details or alternatively check out the Specialized website to learn more about the Turbo. We have a medium sized Turbo to demo and a large coming for stock. If you are interested drop in and take our demo model for a ride!
We also have the Fatboy (or Phatboy as we are calling it) now in stock in size medium. We often hear riders talk about getting a beach cruiser for summer. This bike is literally a beach cruiser as the fat tyres allow you to ride on almost any surface, including soft sand. The versatility of this bike is simply amazing, it has everything from mountain bike races to cruises with the kids covered.
In case you missed the pictures, we have received our new shop kit. This is a pro level kit made by Ventou. Our staff have all given it two thumbs up for quality and fit. We also have a classic fit jersey that is a slightly relaxed fit, making it great for the casual mountain biker. Mens and ladies cuts available in store now!
We have also received a large order of Schwable tyres, with more due in the coming week. This includes their innovative new The One road tyre, along with all of their famous MTB offerings including the Hans Dampf, Nobby Nic and Racing Ralph across all three wheel sizes. Mountain bikers, this sticky rubber WILL help you cope with the loose summer gravel.
Our former staff member Sarah picked up her new Amira Pro Lululemon Replica, which she quickly named ‘Lulu’. This bike is pretty cool, to the point where it has many of our male staff members wishing they made a mens bike in this colour way…
Justin also received his new S-Works Allez. Yes, you read correctly; an aluminium S-Works level road bike! This bike well and truly deserves the S-Works name, it is insanely light and carries a top spec. We have a 56cm in stock, you will not believe the price.
Enjoy the long weekend everyone, happy riding.
We have had a busy past week to say the least. Time for an update on all the latest gear in the shop…
We have just received a new order of Evoc hydration packs. Pictured is the Cross Country 6L (with 2L bladder). We are also stocking the CC 3L (with 2L bladder) which is proving to be a favourite with our staff as it is so light and minimal. We have also received a new delivery of Evoc bike travel bags in both black and multicoloured.
Our mechanics are currently building up one sweet Yeti ARC for stock. Featuring an XTR/XT drivetrain, Sid WC forks, Crossmaxs, S-Works bars etc. These bikes are a race winning machine, just ask Jared Graves! Call for more details.
Did anyone catch the article on Rocky Mountain in the latest Revolution mag? Rocky are one seriously cool bike company who build bikes designed for real world riding. We have Altitudes, Instincts and a Thunderbolt to demo. Drop in for a look and have a chat to us about hitting the trails on a demo model!
Yep, that is a 26 x 4.6 Ground Control. This means one thing: the Fatboy has landed. If these bikes are up your alley, come in and have a chat about pre-ordering a 2015 model.
Along with all that we have had several new bikes hit the road and trail under our team riders, including an S-Works Tarmac, an Epic Expert World Cup and a Tarmac Expert kitted out with Mavic Ksyriums. Keep an eye out for them on the tarmac and trails.
Thats all for now folks!
Our Cycle Swap Meet is only 2 days away! With this in mind it’s time we all brushed up on the five gold plated rules of the cycle swap meet, supplied courtesy of store ambassador Chris Fisher.
Rule 1: One man’s junk is another man’s treasure
Remember this when deciding what to bring to the stall. Swap-meeters will be interested in anything and everything for the right price. Yes amazingly someone WILL want that 650C cruiser with the Spanish threaded bottom bracket you have been keeping hostage in the shed. And those slightly used Biopace chain rings, and that half-worn Nobby Nic, and that assortment of flashing bike lights…
Rule 2: Declare your crash damaged carbon
Remember that time you crashed your new carbon bars into that rock because you had put your brake levers round the wrong way? Remember how you put those aforementioned bars back into the cupboard because they were a bit iffy? Well now is not the time to pull them out and sell them on to some poor sucker.This is bad Karma and Karma has a long memory. Karma will hunt you down and bite you. Karma will send Chuck Norris out to get you while you are sleeping. Don’t mess with Karma people!
If you must bring them along then please declare them. My suggestion would be a big flashing neon sign – “Crash damaged carbon – ornamental use only”.
Rule 3: Some stuff is just not welcome
Now although swap-meeters will purchase and swap just about anything (refer Rule 1), there are some items which you should leave at home, preferably in the bin. I’m talking cracked helmets, expired protein powder, see-through knicks, soiled knicks, skin-coloured knicks, asbestos-based chamois cream and RaceFace bottom brackets. Use your common sense on this people.
Rule 4: Think outside the bike box
It’s a “Cycle Swap Meet”, but that doesn’t mean you should just bring along bikes and bike parts. Look outside the bike room for items the cycling crowd will want. Now is a great time to purge your library of Lance Armstrong books or trade some Maxxis stickers. Perhaps swap a few synthetic event shirts. That VHS copy of “American Flyers” autographed by Kevin Costner will be snapped up faster than you can say “I’m right here Belov”.
Rule 5: Know your gold
A swap meet is the ideal place to find gold but you must be prepared. Gold is that hard to find, valuable rare stuff. It’s the stuff that discerning swap-meeters will lust after and drop serious coin on. It’s that unused, 1993 edition eight-speed XTR groupset still in the box, or that XL sized GT Xizang frameset complete with original decals. Buyers must be ever vigilant and keep their eyes peeled for gold. Sellers must be able to recognise the gold they have. Buyers must look for sellers who have gold but don’t know it. Know your gold.
Bring, buy, swap and sell. But most importantly have fun!
In other swap meet news, one of our distributors Monza has decided to get involved. At their stall you will find a bunch of filthy cheap Louis Garneau shoes, and assorted road and mountain components from SRAM, Truvativ and Avid.
We are looking forward to seeing you all and your treasure on Sunday!
