A T-shirt born in the mid 80’s hanging on display in the store - sparked an idea to revive the design into something new. The T-Shirt done in black and white features an iconic logo designed by a mambo artist and has additionally been applied to a custom Rapha collaboration featuring a unique limited cycling jersey with musette bag, all available in store.
Striking out at the age of 16, Michael “Wooly” Kamahl began his lifelong love of bicycles as a mechanic at Sydney’s Clarence Street Cyclery, following with a stint servicing bikes out of his ute on the UNSW campus. In 1979 he put it all on the line and opened a retail space in the current location, trading $7 on his first day - off to a flying start!
Wooly has seen it all from the introduction of aluminium, to the death of friction shifters, the start of the carbon wave and the ‘zzzt’ of electronic shifting. Many of the custom built steel framed bikes hand brazed on the premises using specially imported Reynolds tubing are still in circulation today.
