started from my passion for two wheels in the mid 70's on a Honda XR75 in our local bush lands and flat track. In the late 90's it was on a Suzuki GSXR750 on our local roads, track days and racing at Lakeside Raceway. I went from D-Grade to B-Grade in 3 years due to track time, setup and the fitness I gained through Mountain Biking and competing in various 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 proper workshop services, 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 at Springwood in November 98 just after Marco Pantani did the double of winning both the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France and became my inspiration for our Rad Man logo.
We moved to Loganholme in 2004 and it just got busier and busier. So 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 from running the shop. I soon realised it wasn't the same, so I re-opened Rad Cyclery at Tanah Merah in 2018 as a workshop 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, with brake bleeding, suspension servicing and wheel building keeping me busy.
