Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!

There is a "new" shop in town which cyclists, and coffee lovers, are going to love. It is probably going to be the 'hippest' place in town, and Wembley Cycles has pulled out all stops to make this one of the most enjoyable cycle shops in Western Australia.
With retro face brick walls and wooden Jarrah floors, Wembley Cycles have perfectly created a 70's meet 2013 look. Cycling art-deco is placed carefully around the walls that not only give balance, but adds that little splash of 70's colour.
Tucked at the back is the bike fitting studio. While still being assembled, I can envision a state of the art fitting studio with the latest technology to help any cyclist with purchasing the correct size bike. After all, when you are going to spend over $1000.00 on a bike you may as well ensure it is the right size.
A workshop tucked at the back where everything is in its place.
You can always judge a bike shop by their work shop. With everything in its place, and a place for everything, you know that your bicycle is in good hands. The worst fear any cyclist can have is getting a call to say that some of the cogs are missing and you will need to replace them.
The highlight of this store is definitely going to be the espresso bar. I believe this is the smartest thing Wembley Cycles ever did. It would make perfect sense to make this the start, a stop, or an end to a ride. Of course, if the coffee is anything like their service, then this might be my regular coffee stop.
Wembley Cycles, on the whole, is known for the impeccable service and keenest to help. There is a saying that goes: "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. I will have to say, without a shadow of a doubt, that Wembley Cycles will be the number one stop shop for any bicycle enthusiast.
