Trevor and Sue are both cycle touring nuts, plain and simple. We offer specialist services to touring cyclists: long haul or short, big loads and small, wherever you're from, wherever you are going! To whet your appetite, follow the links at the bottom of this page to some of the touring stories that Trevor and Sue have brought back from their travels.
You can contact us for friendly and free advice on what bike to ride, where to go and what to take. As part of our service to get you there, we can supply an off-the-peg machine from the Avanti, Specialized or Surly ranges. We can take it a step further and customise your mount to better fit your needs, or go the whole nine yards and build your dream tourer around one of Surly's all CroMo Long-haul Trucker or Big Dummy framesets.... want a Rohloff Speed hub on a 45cm frame with 165 cranks? We can do it. What about a 54 speed transmission with a 16" bottom gear? Sure, why not? Dura Ace on a tourer? Why not!
How Does This Work?
We are not an on-line retailer. We like to talk to people. But we can supply you with the bike of your choice whether you live in Blinman, Gulargambone, Coolgardie or Stuttgart. You can email us or just give us a call to start the ball rolling. We will supply or build the bike you choose, package it and freight it to your home or perhaps the starting point of your tour.
As well as bikes, we can supply and fit luggage racks, bicycle trailers and panniers, as well as the complete range of Specialized helmets, shoes and accessories.
Back up and "Road Service"
If you are planning to venture into the boonies and are concerned about spares, we offer a unique "road service" for cycling tourists. We can't come after you in an air conditioned van, but we will post you the part you need to get you out of trouble asap.
More to Come....
Over time we plan to build this touring-oriented part of our site into a communication and information node for cyclists. The links below will take you to some places of interest, even if only vicariously. But we are looking for your feedback and input, too. Tell us what you think we can offer you as a touring cyclist... maybe a service that doesn't exist yet???? Send us your pics and touring stories, too and we will post them on the site. Meantime, happy travels!
