       Firstly it has been some time since we have sent out our newsletter and here is why; some of you may know already that Fusion Cycles has had a change of ownership and we have all been incredibly busy making exciting changes to the store's appearance, to our website and creating a positive long term plan to drive all of us passionately into the future.

 
        Fusion thoroughly appreciates the support of our community and look forward to seeing some familiar faces again over the coming weeks.  Our long term mechanic Poul Peterson is still very much a part of the store and we have also welcomed Craig Mackie back on board, as well as some friendly fresh faces fitting to Fusion's well renowned customer service.  Our store still remains open as we construct Fusion's fresh new appearance and we would love to hear your opinion and suggestions, both Craig and Poul are more than excited to explain everything we have in the pipeline.
 
        Our destination bicycles brands Cannondale and Cervelo remain with a strong presence in store and we are delighted to welcome Focus bicycles to our line up.  The Pedla clothing spans our new clothing racks alongside a fantastic collaboration with Black Sheep clothing, both brands exclusive to Brisbane.  Black Sheep clothing are currently assisting with a crisp new Fusion Cycles kit design that is planned to be divergent to tradition. 
 
        The outstanding workshop service you have come to expect remains strong with some streamlined restructuring to better suit the feedback we have received since our birth in 2008.  Poul has been managing the workshop for 6 of these years and has taken on-board your feedback to form a brand new service menu to better suit our clientèle's needs and of course wants.
 
        So if it's new bike time, time for a service or maybe blow off some cobwebs and resurrect a neglected friend. We would love to see you in store and spread our passion and experience for a genuine ongoing relationship with you and your bicycle.­  Let's put Fusion Cycles back on the map.



Bicycles change lives. And this one can help make history.

Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung chooses the Cervélo S5. To celebrate the team’s historic debut at the Tour de France, Cervelo have released the S5 Team MTN-Qhubeka in a limited global production run of 200 units, with only 20 in Australia and just 2 in Queensland exclusive to Fusion Cycles, offering you the chance to own the exact same bike.

This stunning new option will be introduced and raced at the 102nd edition of the Tour, and combines the best components from team partners ENVE, 3T, ROTOR and KMC with a Di2 group, including the new ROTOR 3D+ INpower crankset and Smart ENVE System 4.5 wheels. Through a radical new process normally reserved for F1 race cars, a special paint design is applied to our industry-leading S5 frame. This is an aero road bike that is so much more.

There’s also more to this very special S5 than Tour de France glory. For every MTN-Qhubeka S5 sold, Cervélo will donate a sturdy "Buffalo Bike" to the Qhubeka Foundation’s #BicyclesChangeLives campaign, which aims to deliver 5,000 of them to students in South Africa.

After careful consideration and planning Fusion Cycles has introduced two incredible clothing brands exclusively to Brisbane; Black Sheep Cycling and The Pedla.

With both brands being Australian owned and designed we couldn't resist the chance to support local businesses with Black Sheep from our very own Gold Coast and The Pedla residing in Melbourne.

The Pedla:
Pedla kit is made of impeccable quality Italian and Swiss fabrics with the latest European sublimation print technology and a CYTECH Italian crafted 3D chamois so it feels as good as it looks.  Designer Justin Abrahams has created a stunning limited release range which can be mixed and matched throughout the range to create style and individuality that is sought after by many cyclists.  Abrahams said, “It’s a funny thing this cycling. It’s the one space that men get to feel confident about owning fashion. We wouldn’t say ‘I’ve got to match my handbag with my shoes.’ But we love doing that with cycling. It’s fun and the industry is just beginning. The Pedla's new season stock will be in store soon with an exciting new women's range that is sure to impress.

Black Sheep Cycling:

Black Sheep Cycling is a home grown success story. What started out as an idea over a post ride coffee (as all the best ideas do), has grown into a global brand that is now up to its fifth season being released in-store TODAY.  We are incredibly proud to be a part of the Black Sheep movement and have been working alongside designer John Polsen to create our new Fusion Cycles kit as one of the few Black Sheep collaborations. #blacksheepcycling

Both brands compliment each other with the clean styles of Black Sheep sold as a complete kit and The Pedla as a build-your-own style, we believe we have something to suit everyone.  The Quality of both these two brands is exquisite and Fusion Cycles look forward to what these new partners bring to our future.

At Fusion Cycles we believe that the fit is the most important part of every cycling experience.  Improper fit can lead to long term physical problems which can become serious but ultimately affect the comfort of your ride which should otherwise be an absolute pleasure.  We have one of only 3 of these machines in the country so far and were one of the first giving us greater experience and confidence.

The GURU Dynamic Fit Unit is the world's most advanced fit bike providing an infinite range of motion and real-time adjustment to create the perfect ride for you.  GURU's revolutionary software powers the Fit System providing you with an interactive, personalized fit experience to create the perfect riding position.  The software captures individual riding positions during your fit session, allowing you to easily compare and contrast different positions to determine which is best for you.

With 15 years of bike fit experience you can be confident that Craig Mackie teamed with the GURU, your position will never have felt this good.  Book a GURU fit today here.

 

Some of our faithful customers may remember the commando loop from a couple of years ago and now it's back!  Departing the store at 5:15am every Wednesday morning we head toward what would be a standard river loop and veer of toward Mt Cootha and along the centenary bikeway, over the centenary bridge and underneath to head along the river through Jindalee.  This is where the bergs start.  From Mt Ommany the ride gets pretty lumpy, continuing through Oxley and the back streets of Corinda until we tack on to the back half of the river loop, down Annerly Road, along the Kangaroo Point cliffs and back to the store.
Average pace is 35 kph so it does get along and ability to ride in a tight bunch is preferred but not a must.  We can help to assist with bunch etiquette.
More shop are rides are being planned, join our

You can find your favourite brands like, Cervelo Focus, BMC and Cannondale bikes for sale at our store and we also deal different types of bicycles manufactured by Focus bicycles and many others. Below are some of the different types of bicycles that you can pick from according to your cycling needs.
 
- Racing Bikes are used for the sole purpose of competing in a bicycle race. These bicycles offer advanced gear switching and braking systems along with the light weight frames that you let pedal at high speeds with much-needed safety and control.
 
- Commuter Bikes are used for commuting to and from workplaces or running errands and to just enjoying a trip around the block with friends. These bicycles feature racks and baskets for carrying stuff and also usually have fenders that allow you to easily pedal around on a rainy day.
 
- Mountain Bikes are light in weight but feature a fairly strong frame along with knobby tires that ensure superior road grip on various surfaces and multiple gears and quality breaks that allow you to control your speed without any sweat, especially when you’re cycling downhill from an inclined track.
 
- Kids Bikes come in various sizes and features to facilitate kids of different age groups. If your kids are just starting to learn how to ride a bicycle then you can ask for training wheels adjustment that allows a beginner to comfortably balance a bicycle on his own. Fusion Bikes offers a variety of kids bikes in different sizes. Although we believe that bicycles should be a great fit for a cyclist of any age but when you talk about kids, the size of a bicycle is a very important factor to be considered that ensures comfort, safety, and easy learning.
 
Bicycle Workshop
 
Our workshop, under the supervision of Workshop Manager Poul Peterson, has been providing quality repair, maintenance, and bike fitting services to our new and regular clients for more than 8 years at our Brisbane bike shop. We also offer a variety of different spare parts that you can choose from for the sake of customisation as well as repair. Below are some of the services that our Bicycle Workshop provides to ensure the best imaginable cycling experience.
 
Guru Bike Fitting System
 
Here at Fusion Cycles, we understand the importance of bike fitting and how it contributes to a smooth and pleasurable cycling experience because a compromised fit not only makes cycling difficult but can also cause long term physical problems. We use Guru Bike Fitting System to ensure a perfect fit of the bike. This advanced bicycle fitting machine is owned by only 3 suppliers across the country and Fusion Cycles is one of them. The Guru Experience starts with Precision-Based Cyclist Assessment. All Guru systems are computer controlled integrated with advance scientific performance optimisation software that provides real-time cyclist performance feedback which is used to create a personalised brand agnostic personal profile which allows an infinite range of motion and real-time adjustments to ensure the perfect fit according to the cyclist’s needs and requirements. Guru’s advance interactive software allows the Fit System to provide you with a perfect customised bicycle fit. All of the individual riding positions are recorded by the software during an ongoing fit session that allows you to compare and choose the different positions that you consider a perfect fit. Craig Mackie, with 15 years of bike fitting experience, is here to guide you through the assessment and to ensure that your bicycle gets the best comfortable fit one can imagine.
 
Maintenance and Repair
 
As stated above, there is no maintenance or repair job too big, complicated or small for our workshop team at Fusion Cycles, Brisbane bike store. Our team of trained professionals can carry out the repair and maintenance of all different types of bicycles. We offer various bicycle maintenance packages including Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum maintenance package that you can pick from with accordance to your bicycle’s maintenance requirements.
 
Clothing and Accessories
 
We, at Fusion Cycles Store, believe in stocking only the best and genuinely brilliant brands when it comes to clothing and related accessories. Some of these brands are world famous names from Australia like Black Sheep Cycling and Pedla and some are other renowned international suppliers like Kask, HED, Enve, Fizik, BMC and Rudy Project at this bike shop Brisbane.
 
Cycling kits offered by Pedla are made of best quality Italian and Swiss fabrics using advanced European sublimation print technology and CYTECH Italian crafted 3D chamois which make these kits not only look impeccably good but also provide superior comfort and quality. We have also stocked the limited release clothing range designed by Justin Abrahams that can be mixed and matched with other options throughout the range according to the style and taste of the cyclists. According to Abrahams, when it comes to cycling, men are more confident and comfortable making a fashion statement. In usual scenarios, men might not care less about matching their shoes with their outfits but when it comes to cycling the situation is completely different.
 
Fusion Cycles is a part of Black Sheep movement and we are working with the team of the Australian home-grown business success story Black Sheep Cycling, to create our very own Fusion Cycles kit that will be a part of Black Sheep Collaborations. At Fusion Cycles store you have the choice of buying a complete kit or individual items. We also supply shoes, bicycle helmets, and goggles manufactured by various famous brands like Kask, HED, Cervelo bike and Bont.
