Buying a Bike in Canberra – Cycle City, Fyshwick

The Husband needs a new bike. He seems to need one every two years and a bit. We live in Canberra city and it takes him maybe around 7 minutes to ride to work every day. He also loves riding around the lake or up mt. Ainslie on the weekend.

His last bike was Avanti. He went around to see bike shops near Lonsdale st. a few days ago & tried on bikes already.

Today, we went to Fyshwick area to try more bikes.

The first stop was Pushy bike shop.

Apparently they have a car parking space at the rear of the shop and The Husband tried on a Giant Cross City 3 bike. The price is $599.

The second stop was at the Cycle City bike shop. We saw the sign that they had 30% off so we went there.

The shop has plenty of parking, in front of the shop & on the side of the shop.

The staff who helped us was Ricky. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He seems to understand a lot of things about bikes. Apparently he was on a Lotte bike commercial in Jakarta & did a lot of BMX bike stunts in Japan & Indonesia.

They also have a 14.5″ frame for short people like me!🙂

Ricky said he’ll put aside the bike for me to try on sometime next week when I come in without my high heels. He didn’t recommend me wearing one while riding a bike as well!😉

Good experience indeed & as a person who doesn’t understand about bikes, I recommend this shop just because the staffs know the stuff that I don’t know.
