Rad Cyclery Work Shop
Rad Cyclery started from my passion for two wheels, and It all began in the mid 70's racing around our local area on a Honda XR75. Fast forward to the mid 90's and it was onto a Suzuki GSXR750 on our local roads, track days, then racing at Lakeside Raceway. I went from D to B-Grade in 3 years due to track time, setup and the fitness I gained through Mountain Biking, Swimming and then Triathlon.
It was during this time i started my coaching business, firstly as a Swim Coach, then starting servicing bicycles from my home workshop. This is when I started to notice a lack of shops that specialized in the high end and a proper workshop service. So when the moto shop was sold that I was working at part time, it was as good a time as any to start my own bicycle shop. We opened at Springwood on Friday 13th November 1998 a few months after Marco Pantani won both the Giro and Le Tour, which also became my inspiration for our classic Rad Man logo. So apart from Rad Cyclery, I also ran the Rad Multisports Club and then the Rad Coaching business from there. We started to run out of room quickly, so we decided to move to a bigger and busier position at Loganholme in 2004.
I kept running the businesses myself, and it was this that led me to my ill-fated return to the moto industry in 2012, supposedly to have a break from running the shop. I soon realised it wasn't the same, and re-opened Rad Cyclery and Rad Coaching at Tanah Merah in January 2018 under the Bike Studio banner. With the main part of the business now being a coaching and fitness studio, and the bicycle workshop part of it, it soon got too busy for all three, so I moved the coaching and fitness part into my new home fitness studio.
These days, Rad Cyclery, is primarily for servicing and repairing bicycles, from the local BMX, to Mountain and Road Bikes. We have a list of services we provide from the very basic, through to full rebuilds and general repairs. We specialize in brake bleeding, suspension servicing, wheel servicing and repairs. I have kept up my own training and fitness with a bit of gym work, mountain biking, road crits and having a bit of fun at either a pump track or BMX track.
