RAD CYCLERY started from my passion for two wheels in the 70's on a Honda XR75 in our local bushlands and onto racing flat track, then in the late 90's from our local roads, to track days then racing at Lakeside Raceway on a Suzuki GSXR750. I went from D-Grade to B-Grade in 3 years due to track time and the fitness I gained through Mountain Biking and competing in Triathlons.
It was during this time that I started setting up motorcycles for the track and servicing bicycles from my home workshop. I started to notice the lack of shops in my area that specialized in the higher end and especially setting up bikes, so when the moto shop I was working at was sold I thought it was as good a time as any to start my own bike shop. We opened in 1998 at Springwood just after Marco Pantani did the double of winning both the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France in the same year. The legendary climber also became my inspiration for our classic Rad Man logo design.
I moved to the busier Loganholme area in 2004 and as I continued to run the shop myself, it was this that ultimately decided me to accept a position back in the moto industry in 2012. I soon realised that it wasn't the same as it used to be, so I re-opened Rad Cyclery as a service and repair workshop in Tanah Merah in 2017 and continue to re-invent and adapt the business to the ever changing bicycle market. My main part of the business is servicing bikes, although brake bleeding and front suspension servicing keeps me busy.
