Bicycle Anatomy for Beginners

Five minute video which lovingly zooms into bike parts, and names them. “Want to know your dropout from your downtube? And your seat collar from your seatpost? Watch this guide and you’ll be talking bike in 5 minutes.” The ‘bespoke’ soundtrack was made using bike parts (spokes, gear shifting, disc brake rotor twanging), recorded in my garage and then made into music by Greg Johnston.

Christmas is Coming! Summer is Coming (on Tuesday!)

G’day Riders!

We’re all excited about how summer is “officially” coming next tuesday! We also doubly excited since some new CELL Bikes will be coming along with summer!

We’re about to unleash the CELL ‘Rider’, a “people’s” bike of sorts! No frills or bells n whistles…just good, basic, cheap, and most importantly…RELIABLE transportation! Just because it’s cheaper in a department store doesn’t count when you leave it in the shed to rust when it breaks down….and the cost of getting it fixed cost more than the bike! Don’t Fall for False Economy!!!

Also, for the kids! We’ve been listening to all you PARENTS requesting a “proper” road bike, but sized for younger riders who can’t fit on full sizes road bikes, but without paying a small fortune, for a small bike!  The CELL Cadet is coming and will not only make your kid happy because they have a racer just like you, but you’ll be happy because you didn’t pay a BIG Price for a Smaller Bike!

Stay tuned for more!

Ultimate City Bike Storage – Japan

The Japanese have come up with a brilliant way of tackling their bike parking problems.

The Guardian in the UK has posted an article about the ‘Bike Tree’ in Japan which can hold up to 6000 bikes. Bikes can be stored at a monthly rate of about 1800 Yen (about $22 AUD) per month.

While there are smaller “bike tree” services out there, the Japanese one takes the cake.
