Time Out Melbourne

Tom Davies and Pablo Chappelli have worked an old Richmond bra factory into a warehouse that’s as sleek, minimal and modern as their custom-made fixies. The passion for cycling is in Pablo's blood: his relative Roberto Chappelli used to hand-craft his own bikes to race in the Tour de France trials in the '60s. 

Your new two-wheeled friend – whether that's an urban bike, vintage-style cycle or racing demon – can cost between $375 and $995, and the guys only use the best quality components. The pair won the Australian International Design Award for their NuVinci design: a panther-like prince that rides like a dream, thanks to its intuitive, internal gear hub. It will set you back a grand, but for a sturdy light-weight single speed, you won’t need to spend more than $500.

Tom and Pablo are so keen to get you on the road that they encourage visitors to take their bicycles for test rides around the streets of Richmond, and their 30-day free return policy means that parting with your cash is bound to sting less.
