RAD CYCLERY started from my passion for two wheels in the mid 70's on a Honda XR75 in our local bushlands and racing flat track, then late 90's on a Suzuki GSXR750 on our local roads, track days then racing at Lakeside Raceway. I went from D-Grade to B-Grade in 3 years due to track time, suspension setup and the fitness I gained through Mountain Biking, Road Cycling and competing in Triathlons.
It was during this time that I started servicing bicycles from my home workshop and noticed the lack of shops in my area that specialized in the higher end and setting up bikes, so when the moto shop was sold in 1998, it was as good a time as any to start my own bicycle shop. We opened in late 98 at Springwood just after Marco Pantani won both the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France. The legendary climber also became my inspiration for our classic Rad Man logo.
I moved to Loganholme in 2004 and it got busier and busier, and as I ran the shop myself, it was this that ultimately led me to accept a position back in the moto industry in 2012 to have a break. I soon realised it wasn't the same as it was, so I re-opened Rad Cyclery in 2017 as a bicycle workshop in Tanah Merah and continue to re-invent and adapt the business to the ever changing retail and bicycle market. My main part of the business is servicing bikes, although brake bleeding and front suspension servicing certainly keeps me busy.
