Mottainai Cycles

Tell us about your store. Mottainai Cycles is a small local bike shop specialising in vintage bike restoration as well as service and repair of all bikes. We've even worked on bikes that are 100 years old. We also offer custom built bikes, wheel building and expert advice.
What's the best bike track in Melbourne? Melbourne is blessed with many great places to ride, from indoor and outdoor velodromes to beach road and the city loop. Myself, I love to ride out into the rolling hills north-east of Melbourne – Mt Pleasant, Kangaroo Ground, Kinglake etc.
Describe your typical customer. Our typical customer is someone who's after a stylish, robust, refurbished bicycle – for the daily commute or the weekend ride or just something to ride to the shops.
The most underrated bike is...the one that, while it may not be anything exotic or expensive, is ridden every day and is a big part of the life of the rider.
We should all be riding more because...it's better for the environment, our health, alleviating traffic, but mostly because it's the essence of freedom and brings so much joy.

Mottainai Cycles is located at 23 Johnston St, Collingwood.
