The Big Day
Pushies Galore is about sharing: sharing bikes and, in many cases, sharing knowledge. Over the years, we’ve tried to get somebody in from interstate to add to the “knowledge base.” We’ve had Andy White, Mick Peel and Warren Meade spread the good word.
This year’s special guest will be well-known to many bike enthusiasts. His reputation as one of Australia’s best bike mechanics has grown over more than 25 years in the industry. His workshop in South Yarra is a shrine for cyclists, many interstate visitors making a beeline there just to marvel at the bikes and fit-out. His Instagram is choc-a-bloc with stunning builds. His name is Dan Hale of Shifter Bikes.
A few years ago I had a chat with Dan in his workshop – talking about his days as an elite mountain biker and the philosophy behind his business. He’ll be in Brisbane on 13 July.
