Since it’s inception the Surly Troll has been a favorite among World tourers and mountain bikers alike. The 26 inch wheels and an infinite possibility of set ups make it a very popular choice for a utilitarian bicycle.

The roller door at 14 Prentice Street went up officially for the first time at 7.30am on Monday 21st July. After a crazy six weeks of cleaning, painting, building, stocking, fabricating and spray painting bikes, the Commuter Cycles workshop and initial ‘fleet’ or courtesy bikes are now in service. Thank you to the legion of friends and family who have supported, advised and helped along the way. I truly could not have done it without you all. Drop in between 7.30am and 6.30pm weekdays to say hi, see what we do, and chat about how we might be able to help you get from A to B by bike safely, reliably and with a smile on your face.
