Lifecycle Garage & Bespoke is Brisbane's best known bicycle store now re-located to Highgate Hill 4101, has always stood for excellence in product and quality of service. Founded just up the road in the mid 70's by Mike McAuliffe. Recently closing this location, Owner Mark Priestley has changed the focus and strategy, location and position of the business to Highgate Hill, right on River Loop and offering some very innovative services and product.
In its early days Lifecycle was known for being the leader in new products as the cycling boom hit in the early 1980's. In those days it was the only place in town to stock the Peugeot, Gitane and Raleigh bikes which were the first of the exotic brands to replace the local brands such as Malvern Star and Repco.
Primary is the highest quality of mechanical service and repairs. Mechanic Lionel Summers has 27 years experience as a bike mechanic and in fact was the very first official apprentice bicycle mechanic.
