Crank’n Cycles ‘n Toys

 
 

Heya All!


When you can’t make it to Collie to check out our great store, you can come here and get snippets of what Crank’n Cycles is all about!


We’re here with a great range of bicycles, parts, accessories and safety gear!  Plus we have joined up with a huuuge toy shop to become Crank’n Cycles ‘n Toys!  So wonder in through the bike shop, let the kids have a look in the toys shop, and browse our range of bikes and parts.


Crank’n Cycles Collie is the renowned West Australian home of the amazing BMC range of bicycles, as well as the fat tyred bikes from Surly.  From Technical to Outright Silly... we’re known as the place to go for something a bit special in Western Australia.









We carry a wider variety of stock, and more of it, than pretty much any other bike shop - and if we don’t have what you need in stock, then we will order it in for you. 


Why a fantastic bike store like this in Collie, you may ask?  Well, there was a lot of inspiration from Europe.  Travelling around Holland Erik noticed that the bike shops in the cities were big with lots of stock, but fairly stale and catered more towards the mass market.  Disappointed didn’t take long to turn into ecstasy as some amazing bike stores were found in some of the smaller villages dotted around the country side.  Shops filled with the ‘best of the best’, and seemed to be doing well with people travelling to these stores for their needs.  So, the motto of ‘Build it and They Will Come’ came to life in Erik’s mind.










And, really, Collie isn’t quite the back end of nowhere.  Quite the opposite in cycling terms, actually.  Collie has a rich history of Road Cycling - and has been referred to as the centre of cycling in Western Australia in decades past.  And, even of late, we’ve had some great results from Collie cyclists at a national level.  In 2012 Mark Paget won the national Masters Road Championship, and Stephen Pearce came second in the national Masters Criterium Championship (in their respective age groups).  Plenty of back roads to train on, plus a great circuit for racing at the Collie Motorplex.  And then there’s the huge potential Collie has for Mountain Bike riding and trail development.  It’s one of the few WA towns that has all the amenities visitors could want, and is located in the middle of the forrest - ideal for Mountain BIke Trail Development.  (Thanks to the local Dept Environment and Conservation for being on board with the MTB vision!)











So, although Collie is ‘out of the way’, it far from being far from where the cycling action is!  And we only sell what we know works out on the road and the trails.  WIth bikes that are dynamically excellent, plus reliable and with great backup service for when something goes wrong (we’re not going to tell you that there’s never any manufacturing defects with any brands - because there are.  The important thing is that you’re buying a brand that gives good backup service...  which we make sure of!).  The other thing is bike fit.  You could buy the best bike in the world - but if it’s fitted incorrectly you might as well be on a $1000 special.  Likewise, you could have a great fit on a good bike and you’ll be fantastic!  Erik has been fitting people on bikes for years, and has a great eye for where you need to be on your bike depending on what riding you’re planning on doing.









Toys.  Yep, when Erik took over the existing bike shop in early 2007 it was a typical country town store that sold more than just bikes.  Toys and Trophies to be precise.  Since then Erik has expanded the range to include more Toys than you could ever imagine and a wider range of trophies for all the local sporting and community groups.  Added to this is a great range of Moto Cross Motobike safety gear (boots, body armour, gloves, jerseys, pants, neck braces...).    Plus Crank’n Cycles has grown it’s range of Cycling Clothing (over 600 jerseys and cycling shorts, huge range of shoes, gloves, glasses and helmets).  Not to mention we actually stock road and mountain bike groupsets, mountain bike suspension forks, rear shocks, hubs, rims... (can’t think of too many other stores these days that carry these in stock anymore...).  It’s an old school shop with all the bits and pieces you need for a modern day bike.













And advice.  Well, all of our staff ride bikes.  Race, and have raced.  Know what they’re on about.  And if it’s over their heads, they’ll grab one of the other guys that’s full bottle on what you need to know!


We could go on and tell you lots more about the shop...  but, really, you won’t understand until you come in and see it for yourself.


So Check us out, and feel free to contact us for anything we might be able to help you with!

We’d be happy to hear from you!

Cheers, Erik, Pedro, Peter and Sprocket
