The Team

Gabe Sullens, owner

Gabe has twenty five years of industry experience with time spent at Supergo Bike Shops in California, Specialized headquarters in California, Taiwan, and Australia, and some time with Cannondale in Sydney.  While traveling the world doing dealer development for hundreds of bike shops, he has experienced some of the best and worst of bicycle retail.  Armed with a list of best practices, great ideas, and best intentions, he opened this shop with an eye on delivering the best experience with buying a bike and long term rider support.  Building and supporting the local cycling community is also a big focus, and the size of the groups on the weekly rides is testament to this.  He’s a long time mountain biker, leads a weekly nightride at Lysterfield, stays fit in between mountain bike rides by riding his road bike on Beach road on one or both of the Saturday shop rides.

Joel Plant

Joel is our weekend anchor, very talented mountain biker and helpful on the shop floor with all things bike.  He’s studying engineering so get as technical as you like, he’s pretty switched on.  He’s out on the occasional Wednesday nightride, but most often seen in RedHill, Buller, or other mountain bike destinations racing downhill or doing shuttles

Murray Spink

Murray is an accomplished and experienced mountain biker as well as road rider. He is our senior mechanic and has many years technical history in some of Melbourne’s most prolific shops.  He knows most brands well and has a well-rounded experience with a lot of different bikes, new and old. He’s equally comfortable commuting from Elwood on his Cannondale Evo, racing at Sandown, or tacking on a number and racing Cross Country Elites on any given weekend

Joel Kaplan

Joel has been with us since he turned 15 and started by joining our shoprides on Saturday.. He’s gaining more & more experience with bikes and basic maintenance and maturing into quite the road rider.  Recently moved up to C Grade, he’s a predictable and dependable wheel on the shop rides and developing quite the sprint.  His enthusiasm for cycling makes him a great help in the shop, you can see him on weekends or during holidays helping out.
