About the Bicycle Doctor

The bicycle doctor isn’t just one person, it is a team of like minded individuals who have all been riding, racing and enjoying bicycle riding most of their lives. From kicking tires in their local bike shop at a young age to being taught how to fix the smallest things by their friendly neighbourhood mechanic.

We have all had that one thing that frustrates us to the point of throwing it up in the air and then losing parts, we take that frustration out of fixing bikes thanks to our combined cool headed approach of it should fit because it was there before.
