History of Happy Wheels

Happy Wheels had its beginnings as a service-only business run from home. In 2010 we opened our bike servicing business in a small space located in Kingsford and offered our customers Felt Bikes, a brand we ride, love and still have in our store today. After quickly growing out of Kingsford, we re-located to Kensington and from there we had a bit more room to offer a greater range of parts and accessores, wheels, wheel hire, Focus Bikes, and finally Cervelo and Look Bikes. It wasn’t long before we grew out of Kensington and so now you can find us at Waterloo , with Avanti and classic Malvern Star added to our range.

Starting late in life at the age of 4, his knowledge and experience on all things bikes has been obtained as a bike mechanic and through years of A-grade road / track racing, age group world championship duathlon racing, and age group world championship triathlon racing.  Stew puts thought into every component that goes on a bike and the placement of each bolt, cable guide, hanger, and decal. He has extensive knowledge and has been around long enough to know the workings of the older classics.  He prides himself on keeping up with  the latest developments in bicycle technology. Combine this with his down to earth fun loving and friendly nature, means he puts his customers at ease when helping them decide on what is the best bike for their needs and budget.

Ride consistently and improvements will come”.
