Breakdown of service

They’re everywhere:  Stem, seatpost, pedals, crank, headset & whatever else I missed.  They often work their way loose over time & need to be checked & tightened (or torqued if needed)

Rim brake:
We check your cables & replace them if needed.   & brake calipers correctly aligned.    The brake pads are checked & replaced if needed.  After the wheels are trued the cables are tightened & final adjustments made
hydraulic disc:
We check rotors for warping &/or damage & replace if needed.  We check the pads & scuff or replace as needed.  Brake surfaces cleaned with isopropyl alcohol if needed

Brake bleeding is $30 per brake or $50 for both

Align derailleurs, adjust cable tensions, check for wear & damage.  Replace cables if needed

Lube the chain & pivot points on derailleurs.

Chain waxing

Utrasonic cleaners

PXL 20200924 010157907

We deep clean & dry the cassette, chain, chain rings & the front & rear derailleurs using an ultrasonic cleaner & our non toxic secret herbs & spices.  We do this even with new parts.  Absolutely no contaminates can be left or the wax will not take

The chain is then submerged in our ultrasnonic cleaner containing our melted wax/teflon mix.  The ultrasonic cleaners as the vibration helps the wax solution to penetrate deep within the chain & links

Once the chain is removed it’s hung to allow the wax to cool & dry.  Once the wax has returned to a solid state it’s embedded within the individual pieces that make up a bicycle chain.  The excess wax is removed frome the outside of the chianlinks leaving just the wax in the links & a waxy feeling to the touch

Why chain wax?

Because it’s the most efficient chain lubrication method available!

Grit is repelled by our wax/teflon dry lube.  The cassette and chainring exhibit little wear over 5-10000 km when the wax is reapplied at regular intervals

Custom Bicycle Build

Road Mountain Gravel Monstercross Cyclocross we do it all

Whether you’ve found that team edition frame you’ve been hunting for the past decade or want to convert that old mountain bike into a monstercross gravel grinder we’ve got you covered.

New or used, Neo retro, restoration or something completely original it all starts with a frame & the parts you have… & what you need.  

Bikes aren’t that complicated, until you’ve attempted to build one yourself. Seat posts, BB’s, cross compatibility or threads that go this way… or that…  If you’ve ever attempted a custom build you know just how frustrating it can be.


Please check our facebook page & our ratings/reviews.  We’re proud of 1226!  We work very hard to make sure we have great bikes, great service & a great reputation.  We’re stoked that 1226 is a community as much as a bike shop & we maintain this by standing by our customers & our products

Here’s how we roll at 1226

Used bikes in Australia are sold on an “as is” basis but that’s not the end of our story…  If you purchase a used bike from us & receive it via freight please assemble & check all parts of the bike upon arrival.  If we have missed something or there is a fault please let us know immediately.  We will rectify the problem

To make sure you’re getting what you expect we go over all bikes thoroughly.  Used bikes are just that:  Used.  They are not perfect.  But we want them to be as close to possible & to work as expected…  We want you to be happy!

Before a bike leaves our Workshop we:

Wheels & drivetrain

  • Wheels are checked for buckles & to make sure bearings spin smooth & true
  • Shifters & derailleurs are checked & tuned


  • Carbon checked for cracks, softening or any other form of damage
  • Paint is checked
  • Chips etc. assessed

Moving bits on a MTB

We check shocks, forks, frame pivot points & brakes & test ride the bike to ensure these parts are working as expected

  • Pivot points are checked for play
  • Shocks & forks are checked for leaks, smooth movement & plush feel
  • Any lockouts are also checked to make sure everything works as intended
  • Brakes are checked for leaks, rubbing grip, etc. & bled where needed
