|Spicing it up, lights time and workshop|
Monday, March 25, 2013
Well we are now starting to see the dark of morning hanging around just that little bit longer, and it seems that the night sets in a bit sooner. With our bunch rides
(which all are welcome at) we ask that you have lights on and ready to go. Aside from basic safety- it is a courtesy to your fellow riders and other road users.
We have been spicing it up a little bit lately with our Garmin
offers, Bonk Breaker bars etc etc. We like to think we offer fast, reliable service with our in store and online product- any feedback
here is welcome. Stay tuned as we broaden our range of wheels and bike accessories.
kit is almost here!!! Currently being sewn, we expect to see this just before Easter. Fingers crossed!! You can check it out HERE
is going along nicely. We are able to collect and drop off your pride and joy. Pick up and delivery in the S.E suburbs (Melbourne only) is completely free. If you live outside this area, this is fine, there is a simple 15 fee which includes drop off. We have many types of services from wheel building, to complete rebuilds. We have parts and accessories here, however, if you are someone that has sourced your equipment elsewhere then great, we will happily fit and service your machine.
What if you are not sure about what to order?? Its a good question- and our answer is that we will help you. There are many considerations like BB30, cassette ratio's, crank length etc etc. So if you are not sure we will help determine what meets your needs and advise. Once you have done this- great- we will fit it all for you and this includes a post build tune.
Check out some of our recent builds below

The Summer of Cycling
, as it is being referred to, continues to fuel the momentum of good weather, good riding and the company of great people. We are out on bikes and I think you will agree, what better way to stay fit and healthy.
The theme continues as we distribute more post Xmas cheer, deliver more insight from the SunTour and announce more services to the Cycling world.
released this week to the world the new 810 Edge computer. With its Bluetooth connectivity, live tracking and on the go uploads, demand was high. At BoomTime we are looking to up the service in a hyper competitive industry. We achieved this by hand delivering the units to some of our clients, aided in their set up whilst giving some guidance into the fairly intuitive navigation. Its what we do. Check it out HERE
The SunTour delivered more challenges for the Team and we have detailed Stage 2 "from the Car" The back seat of the team car is more than just sitting back and watching the convoy. It's a mix of up and down, tension and a great view that is the melody of Stage racing. Hop over to our BLOG
and check the details of pre and post stage passes to what has been the SunTour of 2013...so far
Triathlon.....we just love Triathlon! Truly one of the few sports where when you are the strongest, you win. We also understand that the domestic racing season has plenty of options. This presents challenge around your arrival, bike bags, bike rebuilding etc etc. BoomTime is offering some really cool offering around Geelong Mutlisport festival and Melbourne IM. As we are located in Queensland and Victoria, we are giving you the chance to land in Melbourne, be taken to your accommodation in Geelong while we rebuild your bike, address any potential issues, and deliver your bike back to you. The packages that we are offering are HERE. Bookings are essential so get in NOW.

|Xmas and Melbourne Sprint Champs|
Monday, December 17, 2012
Xmas is upon us and so the "free" time to ride, Swim and Run seems to ramp up. From all of us here at BoomTime, have a safe and wonderful Xmas/New Year and thank you for a wonderful 2012.
One of the last major events of the year in Melbourne town is the Melbourne Criterium Sprint Championships. This has been modelled off the successful Vault Criterium that we ran in 2011 and with the great crew of St Kilda CC, this event has really grown and turned into the hardest criterium in Australia. Big Call?? Well we think that a 90 minute, 20 sprint prime race with most aggressive plus a points competition around a 1km circuit is going to be a lung buster, especially with 100+ of Australia's best racers- including the 2012 Milan San Remo winner of Simon Gerrans!
