We love making old, unused things work again - and to be honest, we'd prefer to help your old beater get back on the road than sell you something new. James came to us needing a bike for a tour around Europe with his family, and mentioned that he had an old Mongoose lying around that wasn't being used. Rather than spend thousands on a new touring bike and all the bells and whistles, he's managed to get a bike perfectly capable of everything he'll need it to do for a few hundred, and cleared some space in the shed!
We fielded a team of 6 Women and 6 Men in this year's Summer CX series and we think they nailed it!Read More

We had a blast at this year's TDU - aiming higher than ever paid off and resulted in an incredible week on and off the bikes.Read More
Each January, thousands of cyclists converge on Adelaide for the Tour Down Under, the sheer numbers on the road enough to put a smile on any cyclists face. There are pro teams riding our favourite climbs, friends from around the country dropping in to say hi and a seemingly endless stream of beautiful bikes to admire.
We’re using this opportunity to showcase what Australia is capable of out of the saddle - some of our favourite brands from around the country will take over Ebenezer Place on the morning of January 24 in what we’re calling MAKER. From custom steel frames to artist prints, custom-cut leatherwork, software and apparel, you’ll have the chance to put faces to those names you hear so often and perhaps catch some new and exciting brands you might not have checked out yet.
Join us from 10am to experience the best of the East End, with cafes open all day to help fuel your crippling caffeine addiction and get in on the ground floor of the next generation of Aussie cycling!
APPEARING AT MAKER 2016: FLINT // BUCK!T // SKINGROWSBACK // BUSYMAN // VELO-ONE // VELOPOSTERS // RIDE AND SEEK // BICYCLE LOG BOOK // VELODRONE // HEY REFLECT'O // ROGERS BESPOKE // CURVE CYCLING // MAAP APPAREL // FYXO // HILLS & YONDER // BIKETIVIST // BESPOKE CHAINRINGS // CREUX //
MAKER is made possible by our friends at Splash Adelaide.
The end of a calendar year always brings reflection and we have to say, we’ve certainly enjoyed this one. In and out of the shop, we couldn’t have done it without your continued support - and for that we are incredibly grateful.
January saw us flat out for TDU week with a great Swap Meet in the street, a great day for bargains that will this year be replaced with our MAKER event, a little expo of some of our favourite Australian artists and brands within the cycling world. February ramped up into ‘Mad March’ as always, and we made some lasting friends from around the country and around the world who were here to work the Adelaide Fringe.
We started riding on Wednesday nights in March, and decided we wanted to set up a casual road ride that anyone could come out on without fear of being dropped - thus began the Lazy Wednesday. A little core group made it through winter riding every week, a mix of road bikes, cross bikes and tourers and the group only grew as the weather got warmer and the days longer.
We were cold and wet through winter, but when it came to the Swift Industries Solstice Campout the weather turned around and gave us two days of sun for our ride to Port Elliot and back overnight. Some beautiful views rewarded us on those loaded, gravel climbs and some beautiful donuts rewarded us at nearly every bakery along the way.
A bumper Boucle De Burbs field took to the streets in August and took over Adelaide's laneways for a day, with great costumes and some excellent bikes making for a seriously enjoyable day on the bike - food by Delectaballs and coffee by Velo Espresso kept us buzzing along.
We were so hooked on the overnighter that we organised another one for October, heading out to Mount Crawford and again hitting the loaded gravel climbs - putting in work to get there and home with a few tag-alongs riding fixed through the hills for the first half!
We installed a new, bigger workshop late this year to give us more room to take on more restoration, repair and custom build work and we've teamed up with Bicycle Log Book to streamline that process for you, making it easier than ever to book your bike in for a service or a repair, and to keep track of your bike's servicing history.
The silly season kicked in early and has seen us flat out for about a month now, so it definitely feels like the break over the new year is necessary - we’ll see you when we return on the 11th of January.
Happy holidays and as always, ride safe and ride heaps from the Treadly Crew!
We can't sell you one, but at least now you can get one!Read More

Pinstriping is well and truly back on this sweet little commuter from Kona - we're calling it now, Summer Of The 3-Speed!Read More
We've take our first delivery of Bombtrack's 2016 bikes, and we're pretty excited to have our hands on the Beyond. Super-wide drop bars, 2.1" WTB Nano tyres, Sram Apex drivetrain and TRP Spyre dual-pivot disc brakes round out a beautiful Columbus steel frame and fork and make this a bike for any adventure.
Set it up with some slicks as a bombproof commuter, or throw front and rear racks on for a full-time tourer capable of taking on the trails along the way. That huge front triangle looks ripe for a Bike Bag Dude frame bag too!

A couple weeks ago, a little bunch made up of some cyclists and some people-who-ride-bikes-but-might-not-refer-to-themselves-as-cyclists lined up on Ebenezer Place for a coffee and a bagel - nine of them having no idea of what their day would entail and one (me) having not much more.Read More
