Cheeky Transport

I have been a long time customer of this bike shop and had no hesitation in getting them to build my touring bike. Being one of the few Rohloff experts in Australia locked it in. Sound advice, custom parts and competitive prices, you can’t go wrong. If you want something unique, this is the place to go to.

Thanks to Adam, Dave, Nick and the team for another job well done. Check out their website:
