When I heard Chris was starting up Velo Tech Centre as a dedicated workshop it was great news. I entrust my bikes only to the very best, and Chris is that. From a maintenance perspective, whenever Chris works on my bikes I walk away both knowing the problem has been resolved and having had the issue identified and explained. For new builds, Chris nails it ... every time. His attention to detail and build finish is exceptional and his pricing for both maintenance and parts is very competitive. Thanks, VeloTech.
Velo Tech Centre is the only business I trust with my bikes. The quality of the work Chris does and the care he has is outstanding. I’ve gone to Chris with a range of bikes and different scenarios and he gets them running perfectly every time. I don’t think about taking my bikes to anyone else.
Velo Tech has the skills, technical knowledge and equipment to make sure my bike runs its best. I am always struck by the variety of work Chris has in his workshop when I’m there. Whether it’s building the latest Trek for a client or researching retro parts for a bespoke steel frame project, Chris’ knowledge is endless. He is also a great communicator, always telling me exactly what he’s done with my bike in fine detail. And even though I don’t understand what he means half the time, I really appreciate knowing how much he cares. Thanks Velo Tech!
Is Chris the best bike mechanic in Sydney? Probably. Chris has built and serviced 4 bikes for me over the years. Great attention to detail and fantastic customer service. He also offers considered and thoughtful advice on new equipment purchases. Also a top bloke.
Velo Tech was built out of two passions: a passion for bicycles, and a passion for the community. Its founder, Chris Schofield, has ridden and raced bikes for as long as he can remember and worked in various shops in the UK and Australia for more than a decade.
What’s always captivated Chris about cycling is its ability to connect people from all of life’s walks. A 20-year-old student could ride with a CEO of a multinational, a professional footballer could be taught a lesson by an overweight schoolteacher. The bike is an equaliser – a common ground – for people who would otherwise never interact.
Velo Tech aims to be an extension of the cycling community. It is not about bravado, pretension or fashion (although we can provide these if you like), but people riding their best bike, so they can live their best lives.
We don’t just build, repair or maintain your bike, we share our passion with you, hoping you can harness it and love your bike a little more with each visit.
