Wembley Cycles Racing Update

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.

Chris and Declan raced the XC Marathon National Champs at Mt Joyce in QLD. Both put in gutsy rides to finish 18th and 21st respectively against Australia’s best.

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!

Crossmax Crazy



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….

Cool Stuff of the Week

Can’t believe that it is Friday again (although no complaining, bring on a  long weekend of riding!)

Not a bird, not a plane… its the Specialized Turbo!

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.

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!

Swap Meet Rules & News

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!

With our Cycle Swap Meet fast approaching, we thought it was time to let everyone know a little more about our beneficiary Dismantle.

Dismantle have been on our radar for a while, so when it came to choosing a group to help out it was an easy pick for us!

The fundamental idea behind Dismantle is to use bikes as a means for positive change. They have several projects on the go, including a community bike workshop, maintenance courses and a bike rescue program. For more on Dismantle, have a watch of their ‘About Us‘ video.

On Sunday all proceeds from the $10 stall holder fee will be donated to Dismantle, along with 100% of sales from the Wembley Cycles stall.

ENVE Wheel Test – Part I

For the last few weeks we have been out and about testing some ENVE wheels.  The MTB model we tested is the 29 AM with DT 240 hubs (the other option is Chris King hubs). These wheels are aimed at the trail/enduro market, and would suit bikes such as a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29 or Rocky Mountain Instinct. However, due to their light weight we wanted to test their XC prowess, as they are only ~200 grams heavier than the XC race version!

There is a lot of technology that goes in to Enve wheels, but this is a test of how the wheels ride, not a summary of their features. So if you are interested in the details of how Enve build their wheels, head on over to their website for a gander.

As soon as we got the 29 AM wheels we bolted them straight onto our team racer Dave Nairn’s S-Works Stumpjumper Hardtail. Dave is the current State XCO champion, State XCO series champion and State XCM champion, so we couldn’t think of anyone better to put a set of wheels through their paces. ‘Straightline Dave’ as he is affectionately known around the store is also renowned for being ruthless on wheels, so if they were not up to scratch strength wise we would soon know about it…

Dave took the wheels straight down South and rode trails including Dunsbrough, Middle Earth and the Margaret River pines. Straight from the horses mouth; “They are stiff as! They spin up nicely and seem pretty strong, I was pinging rims on rocks quite a bit and they held up fine”. So they passed Dave’s test, on to the next tester…


Once they came back from Dave they went onto Rex’s Stumpjumper Comp Carbon Hardtail. Rex is an elite downhill racer, so this test was predominately about stiffness and stress testing. Rex took them out to the Kalamunda trails and headed for the black diamond lines. His thoughts? “Soooooooo stiff! Ridiculous changing direction through corners and tracking through rough, rocky turns. They just feel really solid. I smashed the **** out of the back one and it was perfectly fine, no cracked carbon, no wobbles and not even a loss of spoke tension”. Strength, tick.


Overall, the main thing we noticed was how insanely stiff these wheels are. There was no deflection through corners and rough terrain, which made it easy to hold a line and carry speed. They also seem to hold up very well in the strength stakes, which is often a concern with carbon rims. Our thoughts were that perhaps because Enve have built the rim so stiff it deflects impacts instead of denting/pushing upwards as an alloy rim would. We wouldn’t hesitate to put these wheels on a big travel 29er trail bike and take them off anything at Luvin Shovels or through ugly rock gardens. At the same time, if you are a bigger XC racer, a bit rough on wheels or want to run wide tyres, these would be a good choice.

So the outcome then? Should you rush out and buy a set of these straight away? Well, there is no getting around the fact that at $3199 RRP these are not the cheapest set of wheels on the market. Our $0.02 is that if you want value and performance, buy some Mavic wheels at half the price. But if you want the best wheels that are out there, you have just found them. To liken it to the car world, these are a Ferrari. Sure, you can get something for less that will perform nearly as well, but if you appreciate that high end quality you will love these wheels.

The bottom line; awesome wheels, but you pay to play!

Stay tuned, next up is our thoughts on the SES 3.4 and SES 6.7 clincher road wheels!
