Sunny Winter in Melbourne, Tour de France, Mottainai Cycles July.

The Tour de France is upon us again, inspiring us mere mortals to shrug off the cold and stay steadfast cycling through this winter. Already half way through….. On another tangent: if you don’t love and adore your bike, if it isn’t beautiful, then head into Mottainai Cycles to change your reality. We have a shop full of elegant bikes that embody both form and function. Don’t waste your precious time on a piece of crap, built with no heart.

Mottainai Cycles is a bicycle workshop, we service and repair all bicycles and specialize in restoring and building vintage steel lugged bikes. We sell restored bikes and love to build custom bikes for you. We are closed on Tuesdays. We are open Monday, Wed, Thurs and Fridays from 8.30 to 5.30 and open weekends Sat and Sundays from 10.30 to 6.00. Find us at 23 rear Johnston Street Collingwood, down the lane-way and opposite Jim’s Greek Tavern.
