Repairs, maintenance and customizing - unique bikes for unique people.
Apart from selling bikes, Switched on Cycles also designs, repairs, services and customizes electric bikes in Canberra and the region (including bikes from other electrical bike companies). Our mechanical services are provided by Alex McNee, from the Natural Engine Shop. In Alex's words:
"The Natural Engine Speed Shop is a bike business that specialises in cycling solutions. From general repairs, to customisation of your favourite steed, the aim is to find solutions to make your cycling an enjoyable experience rather than a battle against an ill fitting or not for purpose machine. We also specialise in recumbents, folding bikes and load bikes as part of presenting solutions that you may not easily find in your local bike shop. We have over 12 years experience in the mainstream bike industry and both the extensive mechanical experience and knowledge of the industry to allow us to find solutions to your cycling needs.
Working with Switched on Cycles is a natural extension to our work - as well as assisting with the mechanical needs of their dedicated E-bikes, the capacity to work together to deliver retrofits of electric assist motors to existing bikes provides yet another potential cycling solution not commonly available in the market place".
Our electrical services, such as testing batteries and diagnosising electrical faults are provided by Chris Drury, e-bike rider (Chris orginally came to us as a customer) and retired CSIRO technican (these guys are great at problem solving).
