From humble beginnings in October 2010, Treadly Bike Shop has grown from a bare-bones fixed-gear and commuter bike shop tucked away in Ebenezer Place in Adelaide’s East End to a full-service workshop and a carefully curated warehouse in Norwood, 1500 metres east of its original location. Upon entering this slice of bike heaven, you’re greeted with walls lined with bike-related prints, massive posters for events gone by, and some of the most unique and varied bikes and accessories this side of Blue Lug. No matter your cycling persuasion, here you’ll be treated like family; no question is too simple, no problem too hard to fix, and no bike too old to be worth saving.
With a burgeoning list of brands including bikes from Moots, Bombtrack, Tokyobike, Lekker, Brompton, Frog, Wishbone, Salsa and Rivendell; bikepacking accessories from Apidura, Blackburn, Porcelain Rocket, Ortlieb, Wald, Skingrowsback, Oveja Negra, and Swift Industries; cargo bikes from Larry Vs Harry (Bullitt), Yuba, and Krankie; lifestyle accessories from The Athletic Community, Chrome Industries, Giro, Yepp, Basil, Camelbak and Sea To Summit; and obscure, boutique parts from the likes of White Industries, Paul Components, Velo Orange, Wolf Tooth, Phil Wood, Thomson, Silca, Jones Bikes, Brooks, and H Plus Son, there is very little in the cycling world that can’t be procured by this little-bike-shop-that-could.
If you’re an Adelaide local or just find yourself in town on a visit, be sure to drop into Treadly for a chat with Sam, get your bike a tune-up, or find your next dream bike (perhaps all three!) - you’ll see why Soigneur magazine thinks we’re one of the 25 best bike places in the world!
