2nd year anniversary for Monkey Wrench Cycles! Also, a Rohloff Conversion

So, what’s the best way to remember the two-year anniversary of your bikeshop opening? The two-year domain subscription to http://www.monkeywrenchcycles.com.au expires! Sorry to anyone who attempted to visit our site or email us for a few days – but we’re back up and running now.

To celebrate our 2 year anniversary of fixing bikes here in Hackett, we’ve gathered a heap of cool stuff and marked it at 50% off. Multi-tools, Saddles, Gloves, Drivetrain parts, Lights, Bottle cages, Cleaning stuff and more. Check out the display at the front of the shop.

We’ve had a busy winter here and it’s looking like it will be an even busier spring/summer for us. One of the cool projects we’ve had over the last few months is converting a touring bike to use a Rohloff internal gear hub. 14 gears, all internal, supremely reliable and beautifully made, these German hubs are a crowning achievement of the cycle industry.
