Northside Wheelers and Shifter Bikes Open House

I fucking love Melbourne. It’s without a doubt, the best city in the world. The people, the bikes, the food. Everything about it is exceptional. Today was the open house at Northside Wheelers and Shifter Bikes. It was great to see old faces and new.

Tomorrow, we leave for a two day, 200 mile, 25,000′ ride over the dividing range on cross bikes, aka an Australian ass-whoopin’, so let these photos get you through the weekend!

Check out some narrated photos in the Gallery!

      assuming you mean “local bike shop,” allow me to recommend East Side Pedal Pushers. http://www.eastsidepedalpushersaustin.com/
      Fast Folks is another good one

    Too bad Melbourne is number 5 on the top ten most expensive cities to live in (http://newsfeed.time.com/2013/02/06/and-the-worlds-10-most-expensive-cities-of-2013-are/). FWIW, nowhere in the US makes the list. I had a buddy who moved there and was shocked at how expensive things are.
